My days of being slightly frightened by Mr and Miss Marc are over, completely done with. In fact, I can barely remember why I was so creeped out in the first place! Oh, right- because they are kind of creepy. However, they’re extremely cool in an odd Tim Burton sort of way. But I’m over the creepiness. (more…)
I am not OK with this. This is the opposite of what is acceptable. The See by Chloe Ring Around Crossbody Bag is a pretty complete representation of everything I dislike about bags of this sort. I find the huge strap/tiny bag proportion disconcerting – there’s more strap here than there is bag. A strap is supposed to be a part of a larger whole, not the entire show. I also think the proportions, matched with the shape and structure of the bag, look really sloppy. It’s just a big blob of mustard-colored leather, and there’s nothing about it that’s refined or expensive-looking. I see people wearing hemp and white-person-dreadlocks carrying bags like this at the organic grocery store all the time. It’s not a good look on them, and for over $500, it’s not a good look on you. I promise. And we didn’t even get into the whole awkward-boob-strap issue that crossbody bags create. Just say no, folks. Buy through Nordstrom for $550.
