Does anyone else remember the Marc Jacobs Baby Stam? It’s was a small, shoulder-carried version of Jacobs’ iconic Stam satchel, made up of a quilted kisslock pouch and the Stam’s signature giant gold chain as a shoulder strap. I always wanted one as a companion piece to my larger black Stam, and I never managed to get my hands on one at a decent price.

If you also took a shine to the Baby Stam and wish that you had one somewhere in your closet, consider the Rebecca Minkoff Kiss Bag. The feel is very similar, but the price is far more palatable than a Baby Stam in the bag’s heyday. (more…)

Marc Jacobs Quilted Multi-Buckle HoboI find myself sitting on the fence over the Marc Jacobs Quilted Multi-Buckle Hobo. I sorta like it – we haven’t seen this kind of buckling mixed with the signature MJ quilting before, and it’s kind of an interesting addition.

If you zoom in, though, the way that the buckles are attached is kind of awkward. Having 3 separate buckled straps would probably have looked better instead of the oddly notched setup that they went with, but perhaps I’m nitpicking. Also, the shape of the bag’s body is good, but does the handle look a bit like a tacked-on afterthought to anyone else? It looks like they couldn’t decide if the bag should be a tote or a hobo, so they made the body in a shape that could be turned in to either, and decide it would be a hobo at the last minute. Normally, I like the handle structure of a hobo to flow a bit better with the shape of a bag, but I guess we can’t always get what we want. Buy through eLuxury for $1195.
