Whew, what a slow weekend here at the Purse Blog. Between Vlad having to take a trip to the hospital and my killer chest cold, we have been a little behind. As much as you all may have missed us, I’m sure you also missed seeing some of the beautiful bags especially during the holiday season!). So we are back at it now! (Also, if you have emailed me please be patient, I am working with a new computer and I have a funny feeling I have lost quite a bit of e-mails out in the milky way of cyber space).
Marc Jacobs has made his way into many of our hearts from time to time. While many of you wonder if metallic is still in or not, I am going to go out on a limb and say- yup it sure is!! But like many on the forum have suggested, it is probably a safer style to stick with the more subtle metalics rather than the overly shiny. The Marc Jacobs Bauletto Satin Bag is designed from metallic olive satin with gold/bronze satin trim. The satin is a nice touch, although I believe it stains easily. The bag is nicely accented with brown leather trim and golden hardware. With some aspects of the bag I wonder if it would be considered a travel bag? There is a front ID holder, top woven handles, and a side zip pocket. The ID holder leads me to assume that this bag would be used as a carryon. Quite the chic carryon if you ask me. The bag sizes up at 11″H x 12 1/2″W x 8 1/2″D, which should fit nicely under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment (yes, I realize that I travel too much). This shiny satin bag is available through Bergdorf Goodman for $995.
