MJ Polina

Jan 10, 2006
I thought about this bag in the white/cream. It was just "ok" as far as I was concerned. I really liked it in the photos and thought that this would be a great "basic" bag--but then I realized it's way too much money for what it is--just a great "basic." I decided I could find something similar for a lot less $ or use that money towards something I'd really love.

Plus the flap gets a little old. And I thought the proportions started looking a little off between the zippers on the side and that middle tagy thing. It just didn't look right the more I looked at it.

I love the look of this bag--so much that I actually purchased it in black. I ended up returning it because when I loaded my stuff and folded the flap it got a weird bump that stuck out in the back and jabbed into me. Also, in the typical MJ fashion, it's a bit heavy. I swapped it for a Balenciaga city bag that weighs about the same fully loaded as the empty Polina.

if you like that but don't want to pay the price, it actually looks a bit like the hayden-harnett havana when you have the flap down (at least in some pics i've seen) and the HH is half the price and wonderful soft leather.

hhhmmm. well, I usually love MJ, but this style doesn't do it for me. one reason is that square/rectangular thing near the bottom looks like a luggage tag holder. like you need to slip in a piece of paper with your name and address on it or your business card in case the airline loses your bag and you need to track it down.... :huh:

and what's the ring for? to hang your keys on the outside? it just bugs.... :smile:
