I said not too long ago that I was experiencing some ennui in regards to the Marc Jacobs Stam, but as it turns out, I was wrong. That’s right, I’m a big, fat liar. Because I’m in love with the Stam again, and this time it’s because of the Marc Jacobs Stardust Stam. If this is an It-Bag gone wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

Marc Jacobs Stardust Stam

Not only do I love the name (it reminds me of Las Vegas, a city which I am newly obsessed with thanks to The Hangover), but the updates are subtle enough to retain the charm of the original Stam while still being interesting enough to catch the eye of any handbag fan that’s familiar with the line. Studs are a somewhat trendy bag accent, but the ones here are small enough to not overpower an already iconic design. Plus, there’s the color – a beautiful, bright teal that will add a pop of color to any drab winter outfit. I’m usually not much for gold hardware, but I still think that it’s the only way to go with the Stam, and the combination here is beautiful. Buy through Nordstrom for $1450.

    That’s beautiful! And the name Stardust totally fits.

  • Otter

    Eh. Says to me “grandma, can I have some money for an ice cream.” Clicks open glittery bag to reveal pinch coin purse and gives you a nickel.

  • Mandy

    I love it too. What a gorgeous shade of blue, and I don’t even mind the gold hardware. Love the sprinkling of small studs. I was never a huge Stam fan, but I’ll take this one!

  • Claire

    Maybe I should read “The Secret” so this bag will show up on my doorstep.

  • bagpoor.blogspot.com

  • kemilia

    Love the studs, does make it look like a starry night.

    I never was a fan of the Stam until i held one in Neiman’s–big mistake! It was so soft and well made and I love the huge kiss lock. I don’t have one yet but someday maybe (this one especially).

  • amelia masniari

  • Julie

    This is SOOO lovely – have you seen the purple as well?? Just TDF.

  • Loquita

    Julie, this baby comes in PURPLE? I die, I *die*… and what a great name for a bag. I would love a Stam, and between this one and the safety-pin version I am having fits. MJ does it again.

  • lllfashion

    of course…another stam…how boring…

  • lllfashion

    Like the colour combo and studs but oh my god its another flippin stam yawn

  • merve kosker

    lllfashion im totally with you

  • Jen

    oh and just another 2.55 does the trick for you?
    There’s always been classic bags that got reinvented, and that’s a good thing. I like the color, not so much the studs on this one – but I sure agree, the Stam is one well-made bag.

  • Julie

    This bag is nice but blue is not my color. I just got a really nice summer bag at http://2009handbags.com. I saved a bunch of cash too!

  • Elle

    ooh how cute! i didn’t even like the original :P

  • Bom

    I’m not usually a huge Stam fan, but I love the new Stardust bags! It is the same style, but I love how dramatically MJ keeps recreating it into something special. I cannot wait to see them in person – they seem so luxe and pretty.

  • tess.

    I like the colour not too sure about the studs though.

  • aundria

    i just ordered it from norstroms, to bad its on backorder……it says it should ship by july 5th…cross our fingers…


    I am in love.

    This back is beautiful, i love the colour and the studs, the clip, the handle. everything about this bags is amazing.

  • M

    I’ve never been a big Stam fan, but this is just beautiful! The color is fantastic.

  • Marc Jacobs Bag fan girl

    Lovin’ it! It’s adorable and quite roomy – just what I needed.

  • AA

    This is such a beautiful bag! I wish I can have it in my hands right now!!! Saw this bag and I fell in love with it!

  • Amy

    Be still my heart!!!!!

  • Jenn

    Hey Stam fans! This bag is going on sale the day after Thanksgiving at Nordstrom. The photo doesn’t do it justive. (I was skeptical, but I fell in love the moment I saw it.) Check it out!!!

  • Gen

    I have this bag on hold for me for the black friday sale at Nordstrom. It’s such a beautiful bag. I can’t wait to pick it up!


    I have happened to be seeking all about for all of this material. Thankfully I came across it on Msn.

  • Kendra

    Simply beautiful. (fb)

  • PrincessGarnet

    The stam of my dreams!!! This is definitely Marc’s most finest bag yet. This stam is dreamy. I love the brilliant teal blue, and the sexy, elegant studs just add a gorgeous touch to an already beautiful bag. I would have loved this on a Cecilia, since the Stam is too big for me. But god, it’s beautiful. I want it. (iPad)

  • mi I keys

    Is anyone know the stam embossed like python with stads like this?
