Marc by Marc Jacobs Sondra Shoulder BagSo, I have a bit of a confession to make. I am a fan of The City. Now, I swore to myself that I wouldn’t get sucked into yet another MTV reality show production, but I can’t help it. I watched one episode, you know, just to see how it was and now I want to watch every single one. I mean, I guess if that is my guilty pleasure, it is ok; it could be a lot worse, right? As I watch The City and I can’t help but think back to The Hills and how different styles are from one coast to another. LA and Miami are filled with bright colors while the streets of NYC are mostly filled with sleek and elegant attire.

There is nothing wrong with either, but watching The City, I find myself on the look out for a fun, functional and oh so fabulous black handbag. Just as I said this, I came across the Marc by Marc Jacobs Sondra Shoulder Bag. The sleek black leather shoulder bag with silver hardware has two handles, a detachable shoulder strap, a zip top to fasten and turnlock pockets at the front and side for a little flare. Although I am not sure if I see Whitney carrying it around as she tries to figure out life in The City, I do like the overall look and feel of this bag. There is nothing too flashy, yet at the same time just enough detail and craftmanship to make this bag anything but boring. Does anyone else share my interest in The City and of course this handbag? Buy through Net-a-Porter for $430.

    It’s a cute bag. I saw a grey one at Marshalls for $136(!) several weeks ago, but the detachable strap was missing and it had a big gash on one side. Since I was very much coveting a light grey Morning After Mini at the time, I almost bought it since they’re similar.
