I've been looking for a new handbag for a while now, but nothing's really knocked my socks off. I'm not after anything special - just an everyday bag which is big enough to hold my essentials (which happen to include ballet flats, nailpolish, 2 pairs of glasses and more often than not, chocolate), but small enough not to take over my whole look. I've been faithful to my miu miu bow bag for a while, but as much as I love it, the sheer weight and size have made me re-think my handbag style. I need a lightweight bag which will suit my breezy Summer wardrobe, something a little fun!
Cue in - Marc Jacobs studded satchel from Saks Fifth Avenue. I think it's love. I'm a huge fan of gold hardware, and love the bright colour. Tan and black handbags seem so boring in comparison. Although the price is a little steep (about $1,500), I'm thinking I may play Santa for a day and splurge.
What do you guys think? Can you find me a more affordable alternative, or should I just bite the bullet and add to cart?
