We are never huge fans of nylon bags at PurseBlog. In certain situations I can completely understand why it is the best option, but typically, it is not a material I would choose. Yet sometimes a designer finds a way to combine nylon with other materials and make it appealing. That is what the Marc Jacobs Rubik Quilted Debbie Mini Bag brings us, a combination of materials on a cute design.

Any other day this review would belong on PurseBlog Savvy, but today it is going right here. Why you ask? Because I love French Bulldogs. I love bulldogs in general (Vlad and I will own an English Bulldog sometime in the near future, they are our love). The little quirky Miss Marc looks all kinds of awkward on the nylon Marc by Marc Jacobs Miss Marc Packables Pouch surrounded by her French Bulldog friends.
Let’s get one thing cleared up before we begin: if the whole Marc Jacobs/Chanel “resemblance” issue over the past several years makes you have a rage blackout, this might not be the post (or the bag) for you. If the appropriation of quilted leather and chains strikes you as more of a winking homage than an out-and-out ripoff, then keep reading.
I’ve spent the past couple of days revisiting the Marc Jacobs Imogen Shoulder Bag several times, trying to decide what I think about it. Every time I open its product page to look at it again, my opinion lands somewhere in the chasm between “WTF” and “I see what they did there.”
I’ve decided that I don’t really think that this bag is attractive, which I suppose is a step toward figuring out what my overall opinion of it is.
We all know how much I love Marc Jacobs, which just makes it all the more sad when I dislike one of his bags. I’ve tried everything that I know how to do in order to convince myself to love the Marc Jacobs Parachute Stam Bag, but I just can’t do it. I won’t do it.
Real talk: the material out of which this thing is made looks like what you’d get if tinfoil and a garbage bag had a baby.
I kept seeing this bag, staring at it, and moving on. It didn’t move me enough to say that I liked it or hated it. I can clearly say that it is not something I would spend $1,800 on, but I can also say that it would look great on some people and with some outfits. I just realized how much I tell you all that some bags may not be for me but clearly may work for other people.
When I first spotted the Burberry Knotted Hobo, it was love (cue song from Lady and the Tramp when they share spaghetti and meatballs now). While the Burberry Hobo is not ridiculously expensive, I still found a great option for the look for less.
Let me introduce the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bow Wow Wow Slingdoodle Leather Crossbody Bag.
What’s a girl have to do in order to thank Marc Jacobs in person for his brilliance? Well, I assume I need to be famous or figure out how to rub elbows with the elite fashion crew out there. While I try to figure out how to make that all happen, I’ll just have to settle for staring at some beyond fabulous handbag creations Mr.
I have been meaning to share this with our readers since last September. Like with many other things, the bad habit of procrastination got in the way… in my own way, rather. However, today feels just right.
It’s funny how six months to get used to the idea of a handbag changes things. When I first saw the fringed bags in the Marc Jacobs Spring 2010 runway show, I was a little unsure. Given more time acquaint myself with the design, however, I sort of love the bags. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve merely become resigned to their existence or because I have actual affection for them, but I’m going to go with the latter.
