There are two things that this bag reminds me of. First, it reminds me of that giant metallic silver Louis Vuitton Alma that Kim Kardashian wore to the beach awhile back. Yes, really. That’s the first thing that came to mind. Don’t judge, we’re bag people here! The second thing that this resembles is an incredibly useful L.L.Bean wash bag that my dear old dad uses, without fail, for every vacation to pack his toiletry essentials.


Do you see what I see? Or have I just been writing too many analytical papers and pulling meaning out of random crevices? Let me share: this Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Vanity PVC Wash Bag is combining two elements, the almost-tacky-and-OTT (over the top) shininess from the Alma and the utility of the classic washup bag.

So it’s a glam marriage””let your toiletries have some fun, no? Buy through Net-a-Porter for $150.

    My pet peeve is the MBMJ outside tags that list Model #________.
    Does he think so lowly of these bags to not actually give each model a real ID number?

  • Tori

    I agree with nancy, I love those little nameplates, but it’s annoying that there’s no number on them. Either stamp some numbers on there, or remove that “Model#_________” completely!

    On the bright side, this case is cute. But not worth $150! Probably $40 at most. Would be an awesome travel bag for makeup. XD

    I remember seeing bright shiny metallic clutches online in gold, silver, aqua, purple and red that claimed to be MBMJ clutches, and I thought Yeah Right as if ! Now looking at this bag of the same material, they must have been authentic MJ. I am stunned ! They just look awful to me.

    UGH! I love most of the Marc Jacobs stuff, but I can’t stnd anything shiny! It just looks cheap.

  • CarolineLondon

    I love! An ideal upgrade for my Quiksilver one I take to the gym and on holiday, but it is kind of hard to justify that kind of money…
