I’ve been looking to purchase a new handbag. As usual, I’m looking for a black leather handbag with gold hardware. This has been my go to style for handbags in the past 2 years or so, which is not refreshing feeling. In the past 4 years, I have seriously splurged on Louis Vuitton handbags and now I don’t use them at all. What a waste of money!
I currently love the classic and simple style handbags. My style in clothes and shoes is changing to a more grownup and classy look. In my opinion, nothing completes a classy outfit more than a stunning handbag.
When I saw the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic “Francesca” Tote, I was instantly in love. The price set me back a little, but it was everything I wanted in a handbag. It’s simple, gorgeous and can go with just about everything. It’s also one of those bags that you can use all year long, which is always a good thing especially in a recession. The more you can use a bag, the more worth the money it is!
The bag does come with a detachable shoulder strap, which I think is completely unnecessary. In my opinion, the handbag looks fabulous carried by the handles but as well all know I’ve never been a fan of shoulder straps. To me, they just make most bags look like a mess but everyone has their own sense of style.
Shoulder strap or not this purse is gorgeous! Great job Marc Jacobs!
You can purchase the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic “Francesca” Tote at Shop Bop for $538.
