Which bag should I buy? (Teri, Tina, Marisa or Sylvie)

  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm buying a Marc by MJ bag for my wife (birthday surprise) and would appreciate your advice/comments.

    I have the following choice...

    Tina Tote (firebird red)
    Teri Tote (firebird red)
    Marisa (burgundy?)
    Sylvie (black)

    I'm edging towards #1 Tina or #2 Teri. Would you be happy to receive either of these as a surprise? Which is the most popular/desirable out of the four mentioned above?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  2. The Tina is HUGE. I didn't know that until today.

  3. Could you post pics of them? I'm not familiar with all the styles.

  5. Can I ask a dumb question? How do you get pictures in the body of the post? I tried <img src=""> and it didn't work. :shame:
     
  6. Bulletin boards won't accept the regular html tags, so <> won't work. You would have to use these [ brackets instead. or you can click on the image icon (yellow box that has a mountain pic) on the editor, then put the link of the image. Hope that makes sense.
     
  7. Thanks Zoinksta. That makes sense. :smile:
     
  8. What size bags does your wife normally use? If she tends to stick to large bags, then the Tina is a great choice.
    If she is petite then she should have no problem with this, but the handle drop on the Teri is a little small I have heard.

    I've seen them all in person and I own the Tina in Firebird.. and I love the bag and the color.
     
  9. i just ordered the tina turnlock bag thru Zappos. they are pm with Saks price if anyone's interested. i just ordered the dark brown. i'm 5' 3" so i hope it's not too big. thanks
     
  10. I have the Marisa in camel and love it, but it isn't for everyone. The tonal print on it makes it really unique and it stands out in a crowd, but some people aren't fans of monograms.

    The Tina is absolutely massive. I stand around 5'5, and when I held it up to a mirror it seemed really disproportional... it might just be me though. Still very cute though, and definitely a good functional bag.
     
  11. i think that, of those, the teri is the most classic style. it will work for dress or casual, and is a really great size. i'd go for that one in a heartbeat. also, the firebird is hard to find, so i think she'd love it.

    excellent birthday idea, BTW :smile:
     
  12. I agree with smc...definitely the teri because it is more versatile (IMO) and can be worn on the shoulder as well.

    P.S. You're a fabulous DH! :jammin:
     
  13. I like the Marisa bag. I just bought it for Saks Private Sale. I got triple points. It seems like a good everyday bag. A lot can fit in it. I like the monogram, which is not something that I usually like. I really like the lining inside.
     
  14. Out of the four, I pick the teri! It's a GREAT bag. Very classic too.

    I think some people may see the Marisa as more of a casual bag and the Sylvie as more loud. You cant go wrong with either the Teri or the Tina!
     
  15. i love the tina. i think it is a beautiful, understated bag.
