The Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag line is for the rational people out there, the people with a budget that actually stick to it. No need to pinch pennies and wonder why your handbag costs your mortgage, just buy a great bag that will eventually be replaced by another. Admit it, you replace your handbags with your newest obsession and soon you forget some of the old gems you have. This makes handbag purchases seem absurd at times. While it may not be made with the most luxurious materials, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Aline Leather Tote is made beautifully. Tan grained leather with a funky oversized embossed button embellishment make this handbag laid back for everyday use. There is brass hardware, natural stitch detailing, and buckle detailed pockets on each end. The front of the bag also sports a large detail pocket. Plenty of pockets to separate all necessities. I love this handbag because it can be worn for this season, or the next, or the next, and you still can get your money’s worth. Buy through Net A Porter for $478.
