hm..I don't really like it either..sorry. I don't know how much they are if it's a really great great price I would go for the lighter as well but don't know if I would ever carry it except for like a diaper bag or girls night out bag...Usually I can only afford a few so I have to go for something more "big" to spend his kind of money. maggie
well, i love miss marc, and kicked myself at least a dozen times for not buying this style last spring. the *only* reason i'm not buying it this spring is that, in person, i find this particular bag shape really hard to carry off. the handles are so short that it can only be handheld, but the bag is so long (ie, rectangular), that i think it would all but drag on the ground. okay, not that bad, but it's definitely too long to be a handheld IMO.
but, if you're tall enough to carry it, and don't mind the shape, i adore it. as for color, the cream (in person, it's def. cream, not gray) is fabulous, but would be dirty really soon, i think - so i'd probably go with navy.
