There are no ifs, ands or buts about it – I hate this bag. A lot. I’m not sure that it has any redeeming characteristics of which to speak, and if it does, I couldn’t tell you what they are. Not only that, but the fact that the Marc Jacobs Dancer Tassel Bag was made by one of my favorite handbag designers makes me a little angry.
Marc Jacobs Handbags and Purses(Page 6)
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).
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 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.
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.
