All you Venetia lovers come forth, tell us how many you own, colors and why you love the bag?!!
The Venetia was the first Marc Jacobs bag that really caught my eye. It looks so beautiful and classy when carried on the arm. Although I only have three I would love to add to my collection! Here's what I have so far:
Olive with gold hardware
Maroon with silver hardware
Indigo with silver hardware
i absolutely LOVE the venetia! it was the bag that started my mj obsession. i currently have two: one in bark and a black one with ivory stitching and nickel hardware. when i need to look polished, the venetia is the first bag in my collection that i reach for. it's perfect for work especially when i have important meetings, business trips, interviews, etc.
i don't use it often because i prefer bags that i can comfortably shoulder carry, but it's still one of my favorites. i really love the venetia cameron diaz has been carrying around lately. i believe it's light grey with gold hardware. it's gorgeous! if the mj boutiques still has it, i would love to get one!
Indigo? I'm so jealous. I lost out on one on eBay. If you ever decided to part with it (fat chance, I know) please please let me know.
I just received her yesterday so I'm not quite willing to sell her yet.
I've got only one and I absolutely love it. It's a quilted black leather with satin gold hardware.
same here! i have a kelly green with gold hardware!
i agree, camerons bag is to die for. ive been searching eBay ever since!
So far a grand total of 6 for me. Here's a pic...the 6th one (gold quilted) is on her way this week. My one lonely blake is in this picture too...
Mine is my black Venetia with nickel hardware. I love this bag! It can be dressed up or dressed down. It holds everything. I love the two push lock pockets. I think it is such a classic. I want another in a bright, wild color. I just have to decide which one(s).
wow! ! CONGRATS on a beautiful venetia collection! just wondering, but do you collect other MJ bags? or other designer bags? or just venetia's?
Thanks!! Well, I am always on the lookout for an interesting blake (there's a yellow quilted one in the pic) but currently I only have one of those, just because I find the venetias so much more user friendly. I've also owned a stella in the past, but gave it to my mom b/c she loved it so much.
I also have 5 LV's currently.
Wow Christyr143! Your collection is gorgeous!
I only have one MJ collection bag (as I am a grad student with a budget) and I chose the Venetia (in Pomegranate) because it is so classic and beautiful. I thought it would be versatile and transcend trends. I hope to pass it on like an heirloom someday. I only use it sparingly even though it would look great with everything.
Here's one outfit I wore it with to teach my undergrads earlier in the semester (pre-fall):
I looove Venetia's/ Probably my favorite MJ bag style. I only have one in Maroon that I adore. It's so gorgeous.I'm definetly looking to expand.
I just have the black w/gold hardware. Hopefully more will come.
