Marc Jacobs New Standard Supply Tote
What is this accessory? It’s pretty much self explanatory, it’s a TOTE. Mr. Marc Jacobs definitely wanted to remind us Bagista’s what we’re looking at. Somehow, I have mixed feeling towards this TOTE, I don’t hate it, but I don’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 wasn’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 don’t know about you all but I totally do not see the “camo” pattern, I see more 80’s wear within it. Another feature found on this standard supply tote (besides its unique design) includes fluorescent coated hardware; I haven’t seen too many bags sporting such.
So would you ladies wear this bag? Personally, I can’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.
