Marc Jacobs New Standard Supply Tote
What is this accessory? Itâ€™s pretty much self explanatory, itâ€™s a TOTE. Mr. Marc Jacobs definitely wanted to remind us Bagistaâ€™s what weâ€™re looking at. Somehow, I have mixed feeling towards this TOTE, I donâ€™t hate it, but I donâ€™t love it either. I imagine it being a great kick-around bag or something I would wear on short shopping trips and on casual days only. What do you girls think? To be honest, I feel if it wasnâ€™t for that bold hot pink graphic found right up front, this bag would look incredibly awkward. I will like to note to you Marc Jacobs fans (myself included) that within the description of the bag, camouflage-like pattern is stated. Does LV ring a bell? I donâ€™t know about you all but I totally do not see the â€œcamoâ€ pattern, I see more 80â€™s wear within it. Another feature found on this standard supply tote (besides its unique design) includes fluorescent coated hardware; I havenâ€™t seen too many bags sporting such.
So would you ladies wear this bag? Personally, I canâ€™t make up my mind on whether this TOTE is fun or tacky, but I do know that the $128 price tag is pretty reasonable for a MBMJ bag.
