I have kept this Marc Jacobs Bag as a tab on my browser for weeks now, contemplating my thoughts on the bag. The thing is, I spotted it on Victoria Beckham in hot pink and thought it looked ok. Then again, Victoria Beckham (love her or hate her) can typically pull anything off and is Marc’s muse right now, sporting his clothing daily and bags here and there. Over the weekend Vlad and I ran into the Marc Jacobs Rana Pouch and I actually still felt ehh about it. A big ole ‘ehh’. While the Marc Jacobs Rana Pouch gives off a different appeal, pairing smooth kangaroo leather with an oversized golden frog accessory, the bag has not set me off one way or another. What I do know is that I most likely would not wear this pouch; I mean, where would I wear it to? It could be pulled off in South Beach, and really South Florida of all places, but it does not call to me. Fact of the matter is that many parts of the pouch make sense. The shape is ideal and hard to come by, making it an easy accessory for a night out with a removable rolled leather wristlet with a leather loop attachment. In fact, this shape is so little seen and so needed, for evening events and the like. The frog itself (rana in Spanish), is a quirky addition. And if any of you know why Marc choose to put a frog on this bag let me know, for I have no idea. Dimensions are 8″x 5.5″x 6″ and the bag is available in an eye-catching acid yellow or a simple black. Buy through eLuxury for $795.
So now I need your help; Fab or Drab?
