I was minding my own business, just casually browsing Barneys' website (research right?), when I suddenly ran into this Marc Jacobs Flap Shoulder Bag, on sale for $359 (originally $539). Now, you know I'm partial to anything MJ so it's no big surprise that I stopped off at his section. What excited me beyond belief was the red font indicating a sale!
Fall is months away but true fashionistas are already preparing their closets for the crunchy leaves and gloomier weather. This flap bag is incredibly right for the upcoming season; it's utilitarian in size and has just the right amount of adornments (the gold chain and signature pushlock).
What really attracted me to this particular MJ is that it's simple and hardcore at the same time. The chain link gives it some pizazz but unlike the Stam and other Fall bags, it retains some down-to-earth-ness. A round of applause to Marc for yet another handbag well done - clap, clap clap!
