As some of you might know, I was highly anticipating the arrival of my very first Stam and my very first foray into the world of Marc Jacobs. I posted this thread: http://forum.purseblog.com/marc-jacobs/your-first-time-with-marc-jacobs-176542.html As I was also very interested in hearing how other PFers entered the world of MJ. For me - it was a picture of Jessica Stam holding the Putty Stam that did me in. In the picture is what is in my opinion - the perfect neutral light coloured bag. The kind of colour that my bag collection was missing. I was also at a point in my life where I'm seeking leather bags that are quality but aren't high maintenance. MJ bags looked like a great blend of gorgeous style and hardy leather that doesn't scratch or fade easily and I don't have to freak out about weather conditions to take out and enjoy. Anyhoo... without further ado, let me introduce you to my new to me Marc Jacobs Putty Stam!
