I love MBMJ. Love it, love it, love it! Interestingly, that love does not extend to Marc Jacobs higher end line. I think that so many of MBMJ bags are beautiful, and functional with well thought out pockets to accomodate all the things that we ladies carry each day. The Softy Max for example, is done in a butter soft leather (of which I own in Tea Leaf) and has interior and exterior pockets which house everything I carry. After having owned multiple MBMJ's, like the totally turnlock bowlers, the Softy tote, and Softy max, I can honestly say that my experiences with these bags have been so great, to the point where I am not in the least tempted by so-called status bags like Chloe, LV, and Balenciaga, where beauty obviously reigns supreme and comfort is a secondary thought. I had a Speedy 30...all it was was a huge monogrammed tent of material that you could throw everything in and hope for the best when you wanted to find something. Anyhow, sorry for that very long spiel. Let me know if anyone thinks the same.
