The Chloe Marcie Satchel has never been among my favorite bags, but lately it seems to have conquered my favor with brute force of will and nonintuitive staying power. With this new laser-cut version coming down the pipes for Spring 2011, you can consider me a full convert to the Marcie’s charms.

Maybe it’s the thick, nasty layer of leftover snow and ice that’s still on the ground here, or maybe it’s the sad realization that it’s going to continue to be cold for months on end, but the off-white color and boho edge of this version of the bag in particular are making me think warm thoughts right now.

Take a little mental trip with me, PurseBloggers. It’s April. You’re on a white sand beach in…Mexico? Turks and Caicos? It doesn’t really matter. Pick your own adventure. In your hand, you have a drink that’s absolutely chock full of either rum or tequila and next to you is a shirtless, tanned man of provenience unknown who seems to have taken a shine to you. What handbag seems totally at home in that scenario? Why, this Chloe Marcie, of course. If that’s not enough to convince you of this bag’s subtle charms, I don’t know what would be. Buy through Saks for $1995.

    I meant (ipad). Sorry.

    I gotta admit, I dig all Chloe (ipad)

  • Candace

    It’s really pretty, but based on how it looks on the Saks model, it looks too big for my petite frame unfortunately.

    But, fortunately, you’ve got me thinking about better weather…where I am now, there is so much snow on the ground! (ipad)

    hmmm looks like something my stylish grandmother would wear.. (ipad)

    I can’t tell if I like it or not. It’s pretty, but just not my style. (ipad)

  • BLynnT

    Love this one! I’m ready for spring (and that wonderful vacation you described, Amanda). (ipad)

  • Jan

    Love it, but that color would get too dirty too fast. I’d love to see it in a buttery brown.

  • 19yearslater

    This bag reminds me of that all-too-short time of warmth between icy cold and sweltering heat. That time lasts about a week and a half where I live. (ipad)

  • Donna C.

    I have a thing for off white bags and it looks like it will hold a good bit of stuff (ipad)

  • swati

    i always loved the marcie …. in all its versions …. this one is no different … love it ….. but why is everyone getting warm thoughts on seeing a stark white bag ? i’ll reserve that honor for the michael kors Gia in sunshine yellow (ipad)

  • Jessica K.

    I love the color and how it could contrast with the dark winter coats. Definitely a statement piece.

  • Charlotte

    I love it! Now if only I had a spare $1995 lying around…

    I like the original ones better – without all the detailing (ipad)

    Don’t typically like whites but I like this! (iPad)

    I’ll have to agree with Amanda…this bag is growing on me too. I love the shape of this bag! (ipad)

  • Ellen

    I love Chloe bags, but this one has never been one of my favorites. It grows on me too, though. (ipad)

  • Handbag Lover

    I want this bag so badly it isn’t even funny. Love Chloe bags.

  • Vitta

    Lovely! Interesting lacing and perforation details. It does bring some Mexican or Caribbean scenery to mind, indeed, as well as that “shirtless, tanned man of provenience unknown who seems to have taken a shine to you”… I hope my husband does not read this blog. Otherwise, I will be banned forever. Oh, here he comes…

    I really like it! (ipad)

    I love it…I also think it would look devine in a a very pale taupe color. (ipad)

  • S.J.

    very subtle (ipad)

  • S.J.

    great shape (ipad)

  • SHERRY

    definitely for the summer (ipad)

    any more colors? (ipad)

  • Kelly

    Big fan of Chloe! Love LOVE LOVE the Marcie! And paraty :) (iPad)

  • louch

    I really don’t get this Chloe bag thing – they are so heavy and chunky and boring. I’ve actually seen them IRL (unlike most bags on this forum) and they just don’t appeal to me at all.

  • ninjaninja

    Love it. (ipad)

  • Joyce

    Still not working for me unfortunately (ipad)

  • Chloe

    I like the Marcie’s shape… the Paraty — not so much. (ipad)

  • susan

    I love the braid work and the style is great (ipad)

  • lovelavie

    not my taste (ipad)

  • Elizabeth

    This reminds me of one of Cynthia Rowley’s bags because of the wrapped handle – it’s called the soft wrapped satchel (it’s on the Revolve site if you want to look…) (ipad)

  • Adrienne C

    it looks like an electric guitar (ipad)

  • Jenn

    Unique shape (ipad)

  • Jenn

    Can i get it in pink :) (ipad)

    If ya give it a different color, I’ll bite. (ipad)

    Not feeling it (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    Love the details (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    Would love to have one (ipad)

  • spanish moss

    if this bag is talkin’ to me, i can’t hear it. (ipad)

  • cl

    I love this bag! & i agree, the “boho-ness” of this bag adds more appeal to me than the other one! (ipad)

  • mrsjones

    i know the feeling, lately fendi’s peekaboo keeps growing on me with the same nasty force (sans shirtless tanned man..i don’t know why!!) (ipad)

  • Christine

    It is a beautiful bag, but white not so great, since for some odd reason i am prone to accidents with the color white! (ipad)

  • Tracey G

    love this eggshell color for spring! (ipad)

  • Kathy

    not liking this one, too stark, too busy (ipad)

  • Mochababe73

    I don’t like the bohemian style so I really don’t see it in this bag.
    I have always loved the Marcie bag, and it’s on my wishlist.
    But not this color. A nice tan or red with blue undertones would work better for me.

  • Tiffany

    I like this one tooo! I’d prefer the Paraty though (ipad)

  • harveydent

    I’ve actually already seen someone carrying this bag in a tan color. I don’t think that this white color gives this bag the justice it deserves, however. I really think that it stands out a lot more in the classic Chloe neutral colors. With the new detailing, the bag has a bit more of an edge and is more wearable for a younger woman.

  • GorgeouslyAwesome

    i loveee this bag! ive always loved chloe, never owned one (yet) but always admired from afar. (ipad)

  • Lianne

    To be honest, this bag does absolutely nothing for me. If handed to me, I would probably look at it and go ‘huh?’ (ipad)

  • Bettye

    Nice handbag. (ipad)

  • Kim

    I find the bag just ‘meh’. (Ipad)

  • Caroline

    Very pretty. I love the detailing! (ipad)

  • Sosti

    I like it. The different textures give this bag an ineresting look. (Ipad)

  • amy

    I’ve tried soooo hard to like the Marcie….but it looks so old ladyish to me! I would take the Paraty over this bag any day.

  • superbaghag

    LOVE it!! (ipad)

  • Chells

    Interesting, but it looks a little old ladyish. (ipad)

  • Jen

    I’d be too scared to carry the white one and have it stained…I’d buy it in dark colors for sure though. (ipad)

  • Miriam

    I will love it from afar (ipad)

  • Jelita78

    this bag is gorgeous!
    love the gold hardware over the pure white leather! absolutely stunning..
    but ohhhhhhh Amanda, i will totally forget about this bag if i have that shirtless, tanned man!
    bwahahahha (ipad)

  • Justine

    I don’t like the color white color though. maybe another color? (ipad)

  • Celina

    I love this bag but the copies are cropping up everywhere :( which makes the bag less desirable in my mind.

  • Jen

    Cute. (ipad)

  • Isabelle

    A great option is the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini!!
    It’s got a similar satchel-like shape with the rocker attitude and is more affordable but still good quality.

    You can find it on eBay:

    The leather is so soft!! Such a classic, iconic bag with an attitude!!

    Too bad they’re so heavy (ipad)

  • Courtney

    I almost like this bag. I big part of me wants to love it but there are definitely bags I would purchase over this one. (ipad)

  • Sam

    Sometimes the color makes the difference on how beautiful a bag really is…and my eyes are instantly attracted to this bag. Is it the color or the bag? (ipad)

  • Elaine

    I find the lace detailing too busy on this bag. The Marcie has a really unusual shape and so the original version already makes a pretty strong statement. (ipad)

  • beanyce126

    this bag is very detail, love the off white with the gold trim. (ipad)

  • Chic ‘n Cheap Living

    I like the detail around the trim and the handle. But oh white and me could not mix! (ipad)

  • Jess

    I love the Marcie. Now I just need $1600. (ipad)

  • Diane

    nice color!!! (ipad)

  • VSOP

    I have never really liked the marcie handbag because it reminds me of a stingray dressed up in leather.

    I got a Marcie Small Satchel in tan. Loved it so much, I adopted her a big sister, Chloe, the large hobo in a wonderful dark burgandy leather. LOVE THEM BOTH AS IF THEY WERE MY OWN!

  • Tina

    I got this bag in red a couple of weeks ago….love it to death, and have had many compliments too!!

    • http://twitter.com/pictureme2 Jackie Spellen

      I love this bag so much… I thought it was out of style. One of my friends suggested I grab a Celine. But I love Chloe so much!

  • http://twitter.com/pictureme2 Jackie Spellen

    I know many of you are not going to believe this but I seen a Chloe in Marshalls for $1178. I put it on layaway but took it off since I was buying a house. Darn, I wish I kept it on layaway. It was a large greenish-olive ugly color. Oh well, someone snatched it up.
