    Thank you browneyesblue for pointing out that shoptwigs has the Marky on their site! Since they always have pretty good detailed pics I thought I'd take a look. It's actually not as "bad" as what I had pictured in my head after hearing BOM's description. I don't know if it would work and/or if I'd like it (trying to remember which side has your money & which side has your cards and I'm sure it will bulge if there's too much change inside!!), but I'm going to have a look at it IRL to see what I think

    Description

    Quilted purple perfection!
    Snap closure keeps credit cards in their place.
    Features 14 credit card slots, 2 zippered pockets and
    two flat pockets. 8 1/2" long by 4 1/4" tall.

  2. Glad I could help!;)
     
  3. I was just about to post this, iluv. Thanks!

    Good to know what it looks like on the inside.
     
  4. actually, looking at it again, it doesn't look like it opens from both sides, like I had thought -- looks like it opens only on one side and then there's a zippered compartment behind there. It might not be too bad, but expandable wallets work best for me, so this might not work as well (altho if it's smaller, it might be a good alternative when carrying my smaller bags instead of the billfold -- I was actually hoping to get another small wallet this season, so maybe this would work)
     
  5. When I mentioned that it opened on both sides, I had actually forgotten that there is a zip closure - but it still holds true. The sides open, but one is snapped and the other is zippered (rather than it being an expandable wallet).
     
  6. beb and ilmb, thanks for the heads up and pics. i ordered one to see whether or not i'd like it. it's also not as bad as i'd thought. looks like the snap closure would be a pita, no? i like the space, but worried that my cc would fall out.

    oh, and interesting that both nordstrom and shoptwigs only ordered black and violet. perhaps it's the only two colors that were produced in the marky?
     
  7. aren't the boutiques getting the marky in other colors?
    or is this another one they didn't buy?
     
  8. nope. totally didn't order them either. it's like they'll be carrying only one color and style this season. hope everyone likes stams!
     
  9. the inside looks just like the LV insolite... but totally better because it is in full leather!
     

  10. LOL!!:P
     
  11. You just reminded me - when I was trying it out, I noticed it was snap closure without it being magnetic. The snap is also really small, so it took some concentration/effort to close it. :P
     
  12. perhaps it'll help me work on my motor and precision skills.
     
  13. I bet that's one advantage the MJ design team didn't anticipate. ;)
     
  14. it's cute and that color is gorgeous; i will wait to see what you guys think of them IRL. :yes:
    thanks for posting!
     
  15. Marc Jacobs is totally killing me with his colors for fall. This violet is SO gorgeous. I NEED something in this color! (Not to mention the MBMJ colors that are going to get me broke- sage, wine, alluminum...sigh...)
