I was browsing through the purse department at Nordstrom on Saturday, looking at all the beautiful new bags that have come out for the Fall season. One of the bags I came across was the Marc by Marc Jacobs “Totally Turnlock Aidan Satchel” and to my surprise it was actually stunning. Even my Mother, who was with me, fell in love with this bag.
What I love the most about this bag, is that it’s so plain but yet at the same time is gorgeous. Perhaps the saying, “Less is more” really is true. In person, this bag looks like any ordinary bag but when you hold it and inspect it you can’t help but fall in love with it.
My favorite feature about this bag was the shape! The shape kind of reminded me of a Prada “Bowler” bag. I’ve always been in love with the Prada “Bowler” handbags, and to see a bag that was just like one at a much more reasonable price was amazing! It does have that bowling ball bag shape, which made it fabulous.
I think if I were to purchase this bag, I would use it as a travel bag. When I’m traveling, I love to carry around a big black bag with me. Black bags go with so many outfits, and when I’m out of town I tend to carry a lot in my bag because I never know when I’m going to be back in the hotel. This bag is on the large side, so it would be of great use when you’re on vacation or simply on a business trip.
The Marc by Marc Jacobs “Totally Turnlock Aidan Satchel” can be purchased at Nordstrom for $528. I do think this is a gorgeous bag, but I don’t think it’s worth the price. If I’m paying that much for a bag, I rather put it towards a Louis Vuitton bag or some other high end designer bag. If this bag ever went on sale though, I just might pick one up! This is one of those cases when you have a great bag with a horrible price.
