The Marc by Marc Jacobs Sequined Shopper is not rocket science. It’s just a cotton tote bag covered in small, black sequins. And honestly, I think that’s why I love it. It’s an unabashed, unapologetic injection of glam-n-girly attitude into any outfit, and because of the size and simple shape, you can wear it with a casual outfit for a bit (or, maybe, more than a bit) of a pop. Because the sequins are very small, it’s more subtle than those terrible, cheap, shiny paillete bags that were so popular with teenagers around here a few years back, and limiting the color choices to black is wise since it keeps the purse just this side of gaudy. And maybe it says something about my taste level, but I love things that are ALMOST gaudy, but not. I may regret it later, but right now, I totally want one of these. Buy through Saks for $298.
