Ursula bowler

  1. Do you ladies think this is trendy looking? I'm a little nervous about the patent leather...

    Thanks!
     
  2. I have a this bag in chalk. I keep an extra dust bag over it and I have to say I am very careful of it. It doesn't seem that fragile. I would say my hologram spy is more fragile. I just would keep it away from sharp objects. It is definitely not a throw around bag, but it looks very classy and it's roomy, but not gigantic.
     
  3. I think it's cute. The style looks pretty classic, so if you are okay with the patent it is probably a bag you could carry for a while.
     
  4. Clu0984,

    I don't think it's trendy looking at all. MJ did a great job with quilted patent leather -- very nice! Which color are you thinking of?

     
  5. I really like the red and the brownish color on the net-a-porter site.
     
  6. I have seen this IRL and I personally do NOT like it in Patent...looks too plastic-like for my tastes..much prefer his leather bags.
     
  7. Hey Jill,
    Thanks for your input. I have not seen this IRL so I couldn't tell how I would feel about the patent. Maybe I"ll wait and check it out in person before making a decision!
     
  8. I think looking in person and looking on the website makes a BIG difference. I found that out a couple of weeks ago. Thought I would LOVE the large and oversized Muse and really the medium was the best fit for me.
    The thing I like about MJ is the feel of his soft leather. That's what draws me to his bags.
     
  9. Red (Lobster) bowler totally pops! It is definitely a STATEMENT bag, I can't pull it off! =) Several members here have it. Take a look at Personalshoppers' listing:

    The brownish color is called Cola (also quilted patent leather), it's a lot toned down than Lobster. I think Bronze (metallic shade) is the color that's on sale at NAP right now. I remember reading here about members buying these colors as well.
     
  10. Sorry for the dumb question...but, what is nap?
     
  11. Habanerita, there's no dumb question. I was too lazy to type, so I just abbreviated online store http://www.net-a-porter.com
     
  12. Thanks!
     
  13. Yes, the bronze on nap is the one I was really drawn to. Love the red as well, but wondering if it's a little too "loud" for me at this time. Probably more likely to get it when I was living in Manhattan, but Seattle is a bit more subdued (LOL)
     
  14. Cola & Bronze are both $645USD at NAP, these large bowlers are still $1075 at Norstrom!
