Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know if I’ve ever been quite as excited to see a bag reissued for a second season as I am to see the Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q Convertible Clutch make a comeback. I remember the first time I ever saw this bag – it was in green, croc-stamped patent at the beginning of last season, and I was in love immediately with it’s shape and size. It’s small enough to be worn as a clutch for a night out if you tuck in the strap, but big enough (and with a substantial enough shoulder strap) to be worn as a small hobo the next day if you’re too lazy to switch your stuff back to your regular purse.
And that scenario? That scenario defines more or less my entire life. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken a cute little clutch to the grocery store in my sweats the day after a good night out, and I’ve looked completely ridiculous every time but was too tired and lazy to switch back to a more appropriate bag. This bag completely eliminates that possibility and would be as valuable to me as more or less any other two handbags. I’ll take one in every color. Buy through Nordstrom for $348.
