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.
Edit: 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?
