Ever since I was little, I always heard my Mother say how much she hated Patent leather. She always complained that it gets easily scratched and that the shine goes away rather quick. I guess, because of her despise for patent leather I grew up loving it. I actually prefer patent leather over any other type of leather. To me, it’s flashy and fun! Patent leather is a blessing in disguise, because if your bag gets dirty you can easily clean it! Sounds pretty amazing to me.
I currently have a Michael Kors patent leather bag that I got in 2007 and ever since then I’ve been looking for another equally fashionable one at a reasonable price. The only other comparable one I found over the years was by Yves Saint Laurent and it was way over $1000. Finally thanks to Marc Jacobs I found one that is drop dead gorgeous. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Patent “Exploded” Dot Lock Petite Rue is not only stunning but it’s also stylish!
This bag screams fabulous and for the price, it’s pretty spacious! I love that you can carry it as a satchel or a shoulder bag and the huge turn-lock closure is amazing! This is definitely a bag I would of wanted when I was in college and I would love to have it now as it’s always raining in Florida. I can’t stand when my non-patent leather bags get water stains on them and with patent leather you never have that problem!
This is a great versatile bag to have all year long and especially for the upcoming Fall and Winter months! For the price you can’t go wrong! I give it an A+!
You can purchase the Marc by Marc Jacobs Patent “Exploded” Petite Rue at Zappos for $328.
