Marc by Marc Jacobs Mag Bag
One characteristic that I absolutely love about MbyMJ bags is the soft, squishy, buttery leather they’re constructed of. Also, the new colors that MJ presents are vibrant and delicious-looking, including the cranberry-field shade the new Mag Bag is seen in here. This bright-colored bag has summer fun, and sizzling hot accessory written all over it. And anyone is sure to make a hot statement this season with this newbie from MJ’s line, Marc.
The new Mag Bag features soft grained leather accented with polished silver hardware details, and a convenient flat front pocket with the adorably common closure seen on many MbyMJ bags, the turnlock. Another trait thats awesome about this piece is it’s convertibility. Simply wear it over your arm with the leather handles, or comfortably throw it over your shoulder with the detachable strap when you need your hands free. And if you need a little organization, there are three pockets on the interior, including a special one for your cell.
I’m loving everything about the Mag Bag including the color, multiple carrying options, and of course, the supple leather. I think this bag would be great for the spring or summer months, and I personally wouldn’t use it for the colder seasons. But I would certainly look forward to taking this beauty out of the closet and out for play during the warmer months. And I think a price tag of $398 is a reasonable price for this functional purse.
