It’s here! A few months ago, we covered the impending arrival of this Marc by Marc Jacobs Happy Dot Mabel Tote to Shopbop. Lo and behold, it’s here, and right in time for summer.

As expected, the price is rather reasonable, at $228. It’s a rather large bag, though. Would you carry it? It’s very on-trend with it’s mixed prints, but I find the choice of prints to be rather matronly””giant dots and gingham. Surprisingly, the braided handles pull it all together and bring it out of the boondocks.

The interior is great too; it’s just Marc by Marc Jacobs‘ signature interior, but it provides a punchy and modern contrast to the somewhat grey and shaded exterior. But where would one wear this Marc by Marc Jacobs Happy Dot Mabel Tote? It’s too large for me, but I’m thinking that it would be at home on the beach. Buy through Shopbop for $228.

    I think it would be great for beach, overnight bag, carrying folders/books to work or school, etc. Very cute and summery.

    The Happy Dot Mabel Tote does not make me happy…

    I would carry it if the straps were not plaid. Not a plaid person. But as a previous poster said, it would be great for the beach. I just can’t justify spending this much money on a cloth bag. My husband would die!

    It doesn’t strike me as matronly, just ugly.
