I have no problem admitting I wasn’t born with the innate desire to own designer handbags. My handbag addiction is one that has developed over time. In fact, I blame Megs. She’s always been interested in the newest, hottest and most fabulous handbags out there. So, over time, I began to take note as well.

But now, looking back, I really could have used a handbag intervention at a much earlier age. I continue to come across bags that would have been ideal for my high school or college years. This bag is one of them.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs Bow Wow Wow Big Percy Cross Body Bag appeals to the younger generations more than older ones, but that is ok. This bag is one that would be a great gift for that fashionable young woman in your family or friend circle.

There is something eye catching about the purple pebbled leather cross-body bag with perforated panel, pleating and twisted knot detail at the front and back. Coming across this bag I noticed the color and the twisted knot detailing virtually simultaneously. The color and detail combination is young, hip and practical. An adjustable shoulder strap with a 24″ drop will fit anyone comfortably. While I probably wouldn’t carry this myself now, it is such a cute bag! Buy through Shopbop for $278.

    I love the look of the perforated leather and that color is delicious. I never liked purple until this year and I have to admit it has been in part to MJ bags.

    This is a beautiful purple, and I have to say that MbMJ has turned out a great variety of cross-bodies this year – which is always a welcome sight for me, since that is among my very favorite styles. However, I saw this leather last night in the store and it was a bit disappointing in quality, unfortunately – particularly in comparison to the gorgeous Faridah that I used to own.

    The purple is beautiful, but the perforated leather is just plain ugly. I wish it came in regular leather.
