It's fug time. This is a bit more than just a plain Blah bag, its fuggilicious! Usually I love Marc Jacobs bags. I love their new quilted bags. But I ran into this thing, and it's not doing anything but making me wanna run the other way. The Marc Jacobs Mink Flap Shoulder Bag makes sure to follow the trend setting with using exotic fabric, mink, but the overall bag has absolutely no appeal. Let me start with what I can like by itself first, then move to what I hate. First I actually really think the mink looks gorgeous (it should right? It's mink!). Umm I guess the leather lining with the inside pocket would be fine too. But what I don't like is the goldtone double chain strap with the absolutely hideous mink accents. Seriously, it looks like some of those arts and crafts puffy balls you used in Pre-School when being creative. This fug bag measures 10"H X 9¾"L X 2"W and sells for a whopping $2,900 through Saks.
I can't stand the new quilted Marc Jacobs - there's just something about quilted bags that screams Chanel rip-off and on actual Chanel bags, it screams "old lady".
I just can't bring myself to wear Mink - they're such cute precious animals and if someone skinned my shih tzu for a purse I would think they were a monster for carrying it.
I'm quite the hypocrite, since I carry and wear leather all time (and occasionally goat leather) - but I don't eat meat, so I'm just carrying around the skin from the meat the other people eat. I don't want to waste it, right?
Whoa!! I accessed a different site which had the Purseblog.com hotlink warning covering the purse photograph.
This has got to be one of the most unattractive purses I have ever seen, mink or not.
