I decided to treat myself to my first Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. I am really excited, but I want to choose well. Right now I've got Posh JJ in Chocolate and Dr. Q. in Nice Tan at home on a trial run and can't decide. These two bags seemed best on me from a recent test run IRL, but unfortunately, I'm no longer near any stores to continue my research. They are very different, I know, and I don't know what to choose! Posh JJ was the first one I was drawn to at the store. I think it's a good size (I am 5'0, medium build) and I am accustomed to a shoulder bag. I thought the shiny leather was cool and unusual-looking. It's got great organization. I was drawn to the Chocolate because I am always drawn to brown, but now, after reading the forum, I am wondering if the brown is too boring of a choice and if I should have looked closer at the Bordeaux. Anyway, I passed it by because I was concerned a little about the double-zip top, but after reading this forum now I think I can deal. So I brought Dr. Q in Nice Tan home instead. It's gorgeous! I love the style and the soft, vintage-y looking leather, but I don't think it's as practical. I had the same experience as some others have pointed out: it really seems to lose its shape as a shoulder bag so it works better as an arm bag, and it also doesn't really keep things organized. I am worried that these things will really annoy me over time. Which do you guys prefer? Does one make a better fashion statement to you? I want something sophisticated and cool, but not super trendy. I am tempted to keep both, but I am not really a bag-switcher. I will wear one every day for a season until I am ready for a change and then it's time to go shopping again!
