Being in South Florida means that the shopping is stellar. One of the best malls in the US, Bal Harbour, is just a 25 minute drive (of course a beautiful drive right along A1A, beach front avenue!). Vlad and I always make as many trips to Bal Harbour as possible each visit, visiting our favorites stores and boutiques. We always pop into Louis Vuitton first, where the service is impeccable and every SA is willing to help. What is the most interesting thing to watch are the people themselves; this is the place to see and be seen. What my mind can not grasp, is why many year 10 old girls going shopping with mommy have a nicer handbag than me. Ok, an exaggeration, but sometimes not. Here is why I love the Marc by Marc Jacobs, it can be a justifiable (to some but not all) tween purchase. Even better is the Miss Marc line, which is funky and casual. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Miss Marc Clutch is a crazy little number, with a zip around closure and a zipper pocket at the mouth of the graphic and at the main compartment. This is funky and fun, with a logo-lined interior. Dimensions are 5.5″H x 10″L, which is perfect for a tween, because really, what will they even have to put in their bag? Hell, it is even cute for a teen, but could be pushing it past that. Buy through Shop Bop for $78.
