I kept seeing this bag, staring at it, and moving on. It didn’t move me enough to say that I liked it or hated it. I can clearly say that it is not something I would spend $1,800 on, but I can also say that it would look great on some people and with some outfits. I just realized how much I tell you all that some bags may not be for me but clearly may work for other people. Ok, so I repeat myself and am annoying. But this is precisely why I love handbags. While one bag may not work for someone, it may be perfect for the next. That is why it is an accessory, it is there to add to your outfit and personality.

Off my side explanation and back to the bag. While very different, I am still reminded of the Diane von Furstenberg Stephanie because of the shape and metallic leather. This bag, however, is the Marc Jacobs Boho Woven Hobo with multi-tone leather fringe.

If you stuck around after the jump, I will also share with you that Amanda already covered this bag. Which makes this post repetitive and random. Apologies?? But I will finish up anyhow. So I like this bag. It is not for me unless it was about $300, but it is fun. The dark brown leather has embossed metallic basketweave overlay, which is that DvF look/touch that I see. If I were to have attended Cochella, I would have loved carrying this bag. It is young, hippie-esque, and neutral enough to wear often. Actually the more I look at it the more I find it fitting for a summer of outdoor fun. Buy via Bergdorf Goodman for $1,795.

    I love the bag, the color but then I’m sucker for woven leather bags. What I do not care for is the fringe. I own a Fringed bag but I don’t like the way the fringe hangs from the bottom of the bag. Not for me either, I’m afraid! (fb)

  • Shine

    I remember that this was featured before, i veiwed this bag a couple of times and i still love it till today, though i cant afford it. What i like about this bag is the illusuion that it’s really big and the fringes where exactly i should be, not covering the bag. (fb)

  • Leslie

    I have been ambivalent towards this bag. When I first saw it, I didn’t really like it at all but now I kind of like how its woven and the colours that are used. I am still not digging the fringe though and as a short girl I am not how it will appear on me.

  • carrie

    I like the bag…but the strap is a total turn off, move on, for me. I agree that if the bag were priced at $300. I would consider it.

  • swags

    I’ve never liked fringe on bags. Well, occasionally and in small doses. This is too much for me. (fb)

  • Jacqueline

    The fringes are too long. They would for sure get tangled in everything. Not for me (fb)

  • Tiff Chao

    It’s a nice bag but not for me. (fb)

  • marian t

    not my kind of bag. (fb)

  • Pat

    I’ve never really been a fan of fringe. I love the color, woven detail, and hobo
    shape though. (fb)

  • Kayla

    I really love the fringe and boho feel of this bag, but it doesn’t fit my personal style. (fb)

  • Lilly P.

    The fringe is just too much. I don’t like it at all (fb)

  • Stacy

    Still prefer DVF woven leather bag, in the smaller hobo version. (fb)

  • CoutureCoco

    I like woven leather but think the fringe make this bags look cheap.

  • Freddie Oufi

    So many nagatives to this bag. I think it is so right for now. Could do with a lower price though!

  • covertanjou

    The woven leather is nice, but the fringe is not for me. I cannot see myself wearing this bag. (fb)

  • Melissa T.

    Take the fringe off the bag and it would be something I would like!

  • BLynnT

    Not a fan of the fringe so this bag isn’t for me either. (fb)

  • SuzyZ

    I have the DVF Stephanie, which in my opinion is amazing at half the price of this bag. This one is fine but the fringe is too long and frankly, silly looking.

  • abitnerdy

    Gorgeous bag, I think there’s tooo much fringe for me though (fb)

  • savannah

    I love MJ, but its fringe over load on this one. (fb)

  • Mai

    I’m a short girl… this bag would look hideous on me because the fringe is so long. (fb)

  • justa9url

    There’s too much fringe…and it’s way too long. It wouldn’t work for me even if I did like the bag. (fb)

  • Kate

    Way too much fringe, bad marc bad

  • Kate

    Way too much fringe, bad marc bad (fb)

  • Tamee

    Still can’t stand fringe. Especially fringe that long! (fb)

  • Amy

    Not worth the price. (fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    nothing left for me to comment here. the bag speaks for itself.

  • Annabelle

    The fringe is a lot, but it’s fun to have so much fringe every once and a while. I wouldn’t take it on the bus or subway though. You’d get caught in the doors. Love that bag, love Marc Jacobs. I have been looking up a lot about Marc recently and the more I read the more I love him. I was reading this profile of him and was really inspired: http://www.realstylenetwork.com/index.php/3851.html

  • Debbie C

    The fringe is crazy long in my opinion. Not really liking it. (fb)

  • 19yearslater

    I love the ad, but the bag is not my cup of tea.

  • Roxanna

    Don’t love it. It’s too boho hippy for me. (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    I like the woven leather but though I like the look of the fringe, it is too long in ‘real life’ to carry around. (fb)

  • Alanna

    I’m really not a fan of the fringing. It just seems totally impractical – how often would you get it tangled in stuff throughout the day? (fb)

  • robyn

    Fringe is not my thing…reminds me too much of the ’80s…(fb)

  • Signe

    Not at all for me! To messy with the fringes and the pattern! (fb)

  • Chris

    If you compare the two – I like the DvF Stephanie much better.
    This Marc Jacobs is too hippie style for me.

  • hect

    i loveeeeeeeee itt i wont ever wear it but i love it !!!!!!

  • ad

    not practical for everyday wear, i would get annoyed with the fringe in a couple of hours. so i guess its not for me (fb)

  • AA

    This bag would be such a beautiful bag without the FRINGE! Ughh, I just hate the fringe on this bag, its so detailed and beautiful but the fringe!

  • Theresa W

    Way too much going on…either have the weaving on it’s own or the fringe on it’s own…not together! (fb)

  • Tammie

    I love hobo bags, but not so much the fringe. Too 80’s for me. (fb)

  • Deborah Curran

    I think you need to be tall to carry this off. I’m 5’4 and couldn’t (fb)

  • Joy Park

    Not a fan of fringe. It tickles :P

  • kim

  • Adrienne Zedella

    that fringe would get annoying and bothersome after awhile (fb)

  • faith24

  • Jocelyn

    I don’t like fringe on bags. It really ruins the look. (fb)

  • Nicole
