NYC was damp, grey, and a bit chilly the whole time we were there. I am not complaining, it was actually a welcomed change from the typical sunny blue skies and low 80’s in South Florida. But I couldn’t help but wonder if the weather made every New Yorker, who usually loves to wear black, wear even more black. My red coat stood out like a sore thumb, but I didn’t mind. I paired my red coat with a golden olive cardigan and my mustard yellow Lambertson Truex Sienna clutch. But I somewhat felt like Ugly Betty and her colorful ensembles in a sea of grey, navy, and black. It didn’t keep me from wearing color and wanting to spruce things up a bit.
So for all you New Yorkers or others who are not wearing color but wanting to brighten your life, the blue Marc Jacobs Jen Shoulder Bag is a great go-anywhere fun style from Marc. The bright blue leather is paired with gold-tone hardware and the signature Marc Jacobs logo plaque at the front. There is a pleat at the front and back, which gives a clean and neat touch. This bag however reminds me more of Marc by Marc Jacobs, and lucky for all of us it is the big sister line with more of the little sister price. The inside is fully lined and has a zipped pocket and open pouch pocket. Buy through Net A Porter for $775.
