I know that Marc by Marc Jacobs makes some fabulously odd and quirky handbags from time to time, and don’t get me wrong, I like almost all of those. The brand provides a lot of personality for a very fair price, and I think that their purses are some of the best deals out there.
My favorite thing about the brand, however, is still their amazing basics. Luckily for me, they come out with a few new versions of their great totes, hobos and satchels every season, and my latest obsession is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Q 49 Franny Tote.
Ok, so, the black is kind of boring. I don’t disagree. But another great thing about Marc by Marc Jacobs is that the brand always makes their bags in at least a couple different colors, and I don’t doubt that there’s a beautiful, bright shade out there that I will need to add to my wardrobe immediately.
My favorite thing about this bag, and many of MbMJ’s leather bags, is that it’s not trying too hard. It’s merely a functional, simple bag made out of nice leather, and sometimes that’s all you need. Buy through Saks for $498.
