Marc by Marc Jacobs Delancy Tote

Here I am again, in yet another airport. I am not sure if you realize it, but the airport might as well be my second home. I am on a lay over in Charlotte right now (I took the 6 am flight, I am crazy), waiting for my flight back to Ohio. Lucky me, my flight is delayed over an hour. This means my lay over is long, I have more of a chance to be seen as the sun keeps shining, and it is not a pretty sight. I need more R&R. Of course, I made my way to a lovely corner and am looking for a new carry-on bag. That is my life, I really do obsess about bags. I realized my carry on is absolutely falling apart, yet I still can not justify buying anything nicer. I do need a bigger carry on, because dag gummit I will fit as much as humanly possibly under the seat in front of me. I am obsessing with the cheap leather bags Marc Jacobs has put out for his Marc line. The price is perfect and the lush leather and over sized dimensions make the Marc by Marc Jacobs Delancy Tote swoon worthy. The cognac leather is accented with brass hardware and features a removable leather shoulder strap. The slight pleating on each side adds a nice dimension, and I love the embossed luggage tag. This is truly an over sized bag, measuring 21.5″ W x 18.5″ H. Give me that and I will turn it into my Mary Poppins bag! Just under $700 via Net A Porter.

I thought this at first, but Silky’s comment made me realize I did not mention it! This Marc number closely resembles the Miu Miu pleated bags that were being designed for a while, especially the Miu Miu Nappa Soft Tote. Is it lack of brains by Marc, or flattering imitation?

Compare to the Miu Miu bag below!

    I am the only one thinking that this looks like a Prada/Miu Miu bag… only it looks cheaper…

  • Silky- that is EXACTLY what I thought at first!

  • EmilyGL

    Wow! The Marc bag is the perfect work bag. I love it!

  • Dania (fendihunter)

    I think the pleating detail is more of an overall “trend” in handbags (Valentino especially has an entire line of handbags that rely on this element).

  • PinkyBrewster

    This bag is hot to death. I must have it.

  • loveitwantit

    Silky’s got it spot on. Another copy from a major :mad:

    Here’s a truly original handbag, Rebecca Minkoff’s Matinee with the pullback/convertible wings:

    I saw it in person today at Barneys and I still love it. When it goes on sale it’s mine in burgundy.

  • princess

    It’s not a copy, they look similar but I wouldn’t think it was a copy.
    It’s a bag style, like a bowling bag. They all have the same shape but aren’t copies.
    I like it. It’s cute.

  • Siena

    This bag looks nice, but it’s too big and heavy to be practical. The Miu Miu is nicer.

  • PinkyBrewster

    I forgot to add, the only drawback w/ this bag is that the shoulder strap is WAY too short and thin. It’s not even adjustable and is not padded :shock:

  • devone

    i do agree with pinky brewster. The burgundy one is so divine……..and i gotta have it. I think we have had enough of bags that looked like they have aged in our closets for a while, hence my reservation about this color shown…..the balenciagas and chloes that are the rage for sometime now. What does not change however is the street cred of the bags we want. They must be loved by the average woman on the street and also her more lofty sisters (or brothers hehehe Vlad comes to mind). :smile:
