Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q Groovee Handbag I have to admit, I’m biased. I love the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag line. I’m not saying they don’t make some really weird looking stuff, because they do. They really do. But at least a few of their bags per season are really chic and wearable, and they invariably use super soft, thick leathers, which always feel much nicer to me than their sub-$500 price tags would suggest. I’m currently carrying an MbMJ Faridah hobo in ivory that I got last summer, and it’s still going strong even though it’s a very light color and I’m not very careful with my bags (read: I’m not careful at all with my bags).

I was infatuated with the Dr. Q satchel that they made last season (particularly its price tag – $498 for a bag Miu Miu would charge you $1200 for), but sadly, the only colors they made (black, grey, and ivory) were already represented in my wardrobe in some of my favorite bags (well, they also made a brown, but Amanda hates brown bags, which is a subject for another post).

I have been hoping against hope that the popularity of that bag would convince them to continue to make it for at least one more season, and last weekend, I walked in to Bloomingdale’s and saw that my dream had, in fact, come true. Not only had the remade the black and grey versions in a lighter weight, softer leather, but they had made a purple Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q Groovee Handbag. PURPLE, people! Are you listening to me? Purple!

So when I got online to stalk it and write about it for you guys after I saw it, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Not a single website had it. Had I dreamt it? Was it a hallucination, like an oasis in a handbag desert? Are there really things out there to buy that can’t be found on the internet? I refused to believe it.

Early yesterday morning, though, the forum came through for me. Someone in the Marc Jacobs section had posted a link to a site that had them in stock online! So now, I feel required to share my find – the purple is beautiful, the leather is soft, and the bag is finally available to purchase. So go. Now. Because this color WILL sell out. $498 through Madison Los Angeles.
