Hello everyone!
I could use some help. So I've been wanting to add another Snapshot to my collection and while I was looking for a particular one, I was surprised to find it on the Saks Fifth Avenue website because it was released in 2020. Has anyone had any problems getting a fake from Saks? I've been reading horror stories about people getting fakes. I'm so worried since there are so many fake Snapshots out there. I might get one and I'll be doing international shipping so there's so much of a hassle if I have to return it! It makes me also wonder they still have designs from 3 years ago. Is this a red flag?
Appreciate your thoughts on this.
Thank you so much

I have purchased many mid-range priced bags from Saks both in store and online and have never had a problem. I am sure that the bags I bought/received were authentic.

I bought a jacket on sale once from Bloomingdale’s and quite sometime later I saw it on display at Saks as a new season/full price item. I have seen older stock being carried at Saks, especially online. When I was buying a lot of Marc Jacobs bags around 2016 I bought 3 at Saks. They still seem to carry a lot of Marc Jacobs.

The one thing that would give me pause is having this shipped internationally. I had a problem with shipping within the US once and it was quite a hassle getting my item. To be honest though this was at the height of COVID and I eventually got my item.

Thank you for your response! I bought the bag but I took your advice and had it shipped to a US forwarding address that we have since the tax for shipping it to my country was about 100$! Crazy! I hope to not encounter any problems! Thank you for your help and advice, I really appreciate it!

It seems Tiffany blue is all the rage- do you think MJ has joined in with the color pool just released?

Here's a side-by-side comparing the Mini POOL (444) with a Tiffany pouch. In the promo photos, Pool appears Tiffany blue-- but at home, it's a slightly different color tone.

Just received my MJ Tote leather purse in color wolf grey. The purse itself is pretty heavy and when you put stuff in it obviously makes it even heavier. The shoulder strap is pretty thin and i can see that how its attached to the purse it might tear and break from the seam? Has anyone had any bad experience with the straps breaking from the purse?
