When I first took a look at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Standard Supply Utility Tote-ally Tote, I thought, “What a great school bag!” and then I realized I don’t go to school anymore. And then I thought, “Well, it’d be great to take to the gym!” but let’s face it, I don’t go there either. “Maybe a weekend bag?” I’ve got bags for that. “Well you could stuff it full of old t-shirts and use it as a pillow while you lay on the couch and watch ‘Dexter’ on dvd!” Yes, that’s really the only use that I would have for it, but I think it’s fun nonetheless.
I also think that Chanel could learn a thing or two from Marc about how to price and market something that looks like a shopping bag, and a canvas version for under $150 is a lot more palatable than a leather version for $3000. The price on this bag may be a little high, nonetheless, but such is the problem with being a consumer of designer goods; all of the prices are a “little high.” Now if only I actually had a purpose for which to use it or anything to put inside of it. Buy through ShopBop for $178.
Side note: anyone think Marc is getting a little ridiculous with the names?
