So I'm at Marshall's today - where I usually stop on the weekends just to see what kind of "goodies" I can find (I found my beloved Michael Kors Astor Satchel one weekend as well as my favorite 7 for all Mankind Denim Jacket!). I'm looking around & see quite a few Cole Haan bags (they're never the "nice" bags - these were straw & leather - Yuck!) - so I get to the last rack, and this suede bag kinda jumps out at me. I notice the price tag is $249, so I figure it must be some higher-priced designer. I pull it out and notice that it's an Andrew Marc! Now, in all my visits to Marshall's, I've never seen an Andrew Marc. Michael Kors, yes. The occasional Cole Haan, yes. And of course, there's usually a D&B and Coach or two around. (I've heard of some PF members finding IF and MJ but I've never been so lucky!) I immediately looked it over. The tags were all attached. The sleeper folded nicely inside. Even the registration card was tucked inside the pocket. The bag was a really nice rust/brownish color - perfect for fall. I really liked how the bag looked hanging on my shoulder. Honestly, I don't think I would have given this bag a second look if I had seen it online, but seeing it IRL and trying it on - I really kinda liked it!! The only thing I wasn't sure of is that it's primarily suede. The leather striping down the front & back was noticeably soft, as was the leather wrap on the handle. I decided to put it on lay-a-way - in order to give myself time to think about it, and do a little research (I buy too many times on impulse, thank God Marshall's has lay-a-way!!) So what do you guys think of this bag- It looks just like this one (which is $450 at Bloomingdales BTW!), except the color is rust w/"luggage" colored leather. I've never owned a suede bag (other than suede lined bags), although some of them do catch my eye. I'm always afraid that they're going to be impossible to maintain.
