With the doleful weather in NYC, the streets are filled with black. It would go against the grain to add a pop of color, though spring really is around the corner and spring craves bright bold colors. Today has been so dreary, and between the umbrellas and ponchos the only color lining the streets of New York are the yellow Taxi’s. But I am ready for bright bold colors! Vlad and I were in a showroom today browsing Fall 2008 bags, but the remainders from Spring are what caught my attention. The bold colors were eye catching and refreshing. I am still waiting to find my perfect pop of color to make my late spring purchase. If you are looking for an everyday bag that is not too much of a splurge but still a great way to add color to your wardrobe, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Faridah Leather Bag is a great option. Marc Jacobs has had Miss Marc grace the front of his Faridah bag before, but this grained grass leather version is easier to wear. Now easier to wear is relative, because the bright pop of green will surely stand out. The bag has a great slouch to the hobo shape, with gold hardware and a shoulder strap. The inside is lined with monogrammed cotton lining. This is a bag deal, as it costs less than $500. Is this the right pop of color for you? Buy through Net A Porter for $438.
