What do you think of this bag?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for something new and have really never been to into bags! I used to work for LV, so I had a bunch of them. They last forever so I haven't shopped for bags in YEARS!!!

Is this Marc bag ok? Consider that I am a mom of two...won't use this everyday, but need something that's also a good size for travel...Be honest! If it's ugly, I don't want it!

eBay: MARC by MARC JACOBS authentic Beth Hobo Handbag *NWT!* (item 290065738259 end time Jan-03-07 05:31:58 PST)

Thanks, Melanie! If anyone has an idea of authenticity as well as their opinion, that'd be great!

Thanks Allison! I am not sure how much I love it either!!! Probably why I'm asking for second opinions!

Anyone have any suggestions on a Coach style that might be a similar size? I'm a Coach dummy!!!

I agree with Allison... not crazy about it...

as for coach, they have some awesome new stuff out and prices close to the MJ one:

[my personal fav of these, the lacing is cute!] Coach - LEATHER MEDIUM DUFFLE

[this one also comes in pebbled leather]
Coach - New COACH HAMPTONS SIGNATURE PERFORATED LARGE HOBO

[this style comes in a bunch of colors, including the new large C pattern]
Coach - New CARLY LEATHER BAG

Oooh! I like both of those! I love how the Coach website let's you "try the bag on"! That second one, the Carly one, comes in the C fabric as well as the leather shown? Hmmmmm...nice!

uh oh, me likey. Where would one acquire such a bag??? Is it a new style? No chance it'd be at an outlet?

Yeah brand new for winter, not at outlets yet they have them at any coach store, online, and I think Macy's has some sort of contract with coach and it might be there as well

Thanks! I'm gonna try to get over to the outlet this weekend and see if there's anything I like before spending $300+. THANKS!!!

I've seen some like this one at the Coach outlets:

eBay: COACH MINI SIGNATURE POCKET TOTE BAG KHAKI 3646 NWT (item 330068114979 end time Jan-06-07 23:02:16 PST)

In both leather and sig. It's similar to that one you like but has double handles instead of one strap. I don't remember the outlet price but I'm pretty certain it was under $200.

Like that one too! I need to get out my measuring tape and try to figure out exactly what size I want! I'll go to the outlet this weekend for sure! Thanks!

You use to work for LV?! SOO JEALOUS! that's like my dream job, haha!

I've never been a fan of that mbymj style because the leather is so stiff and I definitely prefer the Coach suggestions over the mj. Hope you find something at the outlets!!
post #15 of 23
personally, i'm not a fan of that bag. i don't think it'll match all the designer denim you'll be sporting (:

Ok, so I went to the outlet...no signature stuff really. boo. I ended up getting a fairly large suede Coach tote...maybe not exactly what I was looking for but it is really pretty, basic, and was a good deal. I'll post pics when hubby isn't around ...don't want to draw to much attention to my little purchase!!! heeheehee!

can't wait to see pics =]

Here's what I got...debating on keeping it! I really would like a signature bag, around the same size. I'm thinking it's what I need for a cruise we're going on in March with the family...let me know what y'all think!

(Please disregard my dirty mirror! My kids brush their teeth there and I just realized how yucky it is!!! )

It's very cute. It's good that it has the smooth leather on the bottom and the corners to protect the suede. It looks soft and roomy too!
post #20 of 23
ooh great coach tote! i actually have that mbymj bag and i really like it. i love the bows on the pockets--thats what originally drew me into that particular style. the leather is a bit stiff but it softens with wear and its a good size so you can fit alot in it. it's a fun bag but it does have a younger look. i cant speak for the authenticity of that bag because it's just a stock pic.

p.s. im so jealous that you worked at LV! i'd LOVVVVVVVVE to work there!
post #21 of 23
Do you mind me asking how much it was at the outlet? I love it BTW!
post #22 of 23
oh yay! I have that one too but with the coach sig and sequins
it's awsomeness :P

Just be really careful with the suede it gets dirty fast. At least your is dark. Mine is beige and it looks like a disaster.
