Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Sasha Shoulder BagShhhhh.

Don’t tell my parents, but I’ve always thought tattoos were so cool. If I meet a guy I think is cute, he automatically gets cuter if I’m able to find a tattoo somewhere on his body. The more, the better. I love ’em. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting one of my own, but have never gone through with it. I can hear my parents writing me out of the will now.

And the reason that I like the Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Sasha Shoulder Bag is because the gold-colored metal sparrows on the front will probably look familiar to any tattoo aficionado. They’re a retro throwback to old-school tattooing and I’ve thought about getting a similar design on the back of my shoulders. I’m probably too chicken (and too afraid of exclusion from the aforementioned will) to put it on my body, but I’d definitely wear it in a handbag, particularly something that uses it in an understated but fun way like this bag. The leather, as always, looks phenomenal and the bag looks entirely functional, so if the birds bit in to your personal style, then why not have some fun with it? Buy through Saks for $498.

    For the first time ever, I am in love with a MJ bag!

  • Jessica Jean Benson

    I like this bag too even though I am not sure if I would carry it; its so unique! It’s funny you mention those birds and tattoos…. because I don’t have a tattoo yet and really want a bird like that ;)

  • Bloomdl

    Oh no, I thought I was over my MxMJ fascination. Now this! I love it!

  • 19yearslater

    I love Marc by Marc’s fun designs this season. I love tattoo designs. I don’t have one yet but I will, and my parents have accepted that I’m weird without really approving.

  • Allison

    I love this!! I can’t wait to get my hands on one…I hope they make it in some other colors…the only ones I can find online now are black and brown. swoon. I wouldn’t have thought of the bird designs as tattoo-like, but you’re totally right…its just the right amount of punk with a dash of sweet, and I love that.

  • elisa

    I’m so happy he brought back the bird. I LOVE IT! I have a gray m by mj bag from 2007 that had these birds around it and i loved it so much and still do but I’ve definitely outgrown it. I’ve been looking for a replacment mj bag for awhile and this new bag is definitely the next step and much more functional. I’m going to have to cut back on food and and save up for this gorgeous bag!

  • Bentley

    • L

      Have you sold it yet? if not Ive been looking everywhere for one!

  • yellowel

    I love mine in black, but it also comes in purple, newsprint and cement. I had the hardest time deciding what color to get! I do wish the strap was adjustable since I’m only 5′, but I LOVE IT anyway!!!

    • Chantal

      where’d you buy it from? Or how long ago? I think they are all sold out – so maybe you bought it a while back, correct? in black, of course.

  • Chantal

    I wish I would have been able to purchase this bag. My life is incomplete w/out it. I am in desperate need of a lovely black and gold bag. Marc, please release more!

  • lau-ra

    i want the cognac color so badlyyyyy

  • SP

    I bought it from Saks Fifth Ave in Denver, CO

    I have the original receipt from Saks, if interested send me your email.

    • AE

      Have you sold your black Sasha yet? If not I’m completely interested!!!

  • Ginger

    I just bought this bag at Holt Renfrew in Canada… mine is silver hardware which I love.
    This is finally a Marc bag that I am in love with! It is edgy but classic and won’t date (like I think some Ed Hardy stuff will). Love that you can wear it cross body or shorten to a hobo.
    Loving it!

    • Sarah

      Which Holt’s did you purchase it from? Toronto? Vancouver? Do you know what other colours they carry?

      • Libby

        Holt Renfrew is carrying the Natasha, not Sasha, in black and saddle with silver hardware.

  • Leanne
