Every time Marc by Marc Jacobs does something to mildly piss me off, the brand almost immediately comes out with a bag or accessory that manages to make me forget all about my previous irritation. Last week, I hated on the PVC used in the Marc by Marc Jacobs Ozzie Square Lucy Tote, but now, all I can think about is how much I want the Marc by Marc Jacobs Party Foret Shoulder Bag in every color. It’s almost exactly like the very useful Marc Jacobs Single Bag, except $200 less expensive and with a more interesting quilted pattern.
I can’t say enough for the little shoulder bag as a closet necessity and all-around workhorse of a purse. Nothing goes from day to night better, and choosing a solid-colored option with an interesting texture makes the design even easier to use regularly. The bag also comes in black, but I’d pick one of the lighter ones for a little bit of variety. I have too many small black bags as it is, and yellow or ivory is a perfect way to show off the quilted details of this design. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $358.
