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.

    Pretty basic, functional purse. Very nice. Wearing black all the time is boring and depressing! Congrats to you on daring to wear colour ;)

  • Kimberley

    I saw this bag a few days ago. The leather is so soft, and the color is so vibrant. If you pair with the right colors . . this bag will be really hot!

    Grr! I´m not liking MJ at all. This bag has an artificial color and the leather does not look like leather at all.It looks like rubber.I wouldn´t call this a designer bag for one sec.

    It’s an attractive bag, but I wish more bags would come with the interior divided up. I don’t want my keys and my wallet banging around in the same space was my notebook and my sony reader. Unfortunately, structured bags with interior divisions are really looking rare compared to the number of saggy hobo type bags.

  • Jen

    Love the pleat, love the color, love the handles big enough to rest on the shoulder, love that it has my name!

    Lianne, you should get a key holder to protect things from your keys. I have one that holds 6 keys and folds up like a wallet. It even has two spots for some cards, which makes it convenient to take to the gym. LV makes them, but mine is Pucci.

  • Lianne

    Ah, Jen, but can it handle a big car remote? Plus, my car key is one of those oversized chipped keys. I haven’t seen any key holders that handle that combination.

    I have a lovely Black Marc Jacobs bag – but i’ve lost one of the little silver screws from the workwear plaque.

    Does anyone know where i might be able to get a replacement screw?
