As I suspect many of you are, I’m a little bored with the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q line. Yes, it’s a great idea – classic bags in thick, high-quality leathers for a reasonable price. But even great ideas can wear out their welcome without a shot of newness every now and then.
With that in mind, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q High School Bag is one of my favorite Classic Q bags in several seasons. The shape, as with all the Classic Q bag, is traditional and refined, but it also fits in perfectly with fall’s ladylike handbag trends. This bag is exactly what I needed to get excited about this line again.
When you open up the bag, it’s actually pretty practical as well. The main compartment is divided into two, which I think is an under-appreciated virtue. Having more than one large space in a bag always makes it easier for me to stay organized, plus it keeps my keys from damaging things like my phone or sunglasses. This bag does a great job reminding me why I liked the Classic Q line in the first place – it’s neutral, classic and totally functional. Buy through Saks for $498.
