My New Marc Jacobs Bag…

Marc Jacobs Bag  classic camel bag

When the first check for my book arrived, the husband hinted that I should reward myself for all my hard work and buy something with it. This was probably not the smartest thing the husband could have said at that particular moment because up until that point, I had planned on heading straight to the bank with it. But the damage had been done and I decided to splurge big time on a Chloe bag I’d been dying for. And upon its arrival, I wasn’t impressed {and it was GINORMOUS}, so I sent it back. I may have had a little buyer’s remorse as well because $1800 for a bag is quite a ridiculous notion. Come to think of it, I do have handbags of the same value that were gifts which somehow makes the idea seem less ridiculous{?}.

While out shopping with my mom on Friday, exchanging Christmas gifts & spending gift cards, I decided it couldn’t hurt to look around because really, I still hadn’t gotten my “reward” {which is also a ridiculous notion because having a book published is award enough}. I found this Marc Jacobs “Classic” bag in camel {which I actually can’t find color-wise online} and somehow the $1195 price tag seemed nothing in comparison to the $1800… I know. Ridiculous. But wow. This bag is gorgeous. And will be gorgeous in 20 years as well… provided we are all still on this planet and still wearing clothes, that is.

    Good choice, classic shape and a super pretty color! I plan to reward myself for finishing my book with a 168$ personalized makeup kit… Slightly jealous 😀

    That bag! Oh, that bag! I. Want. That. Bag! But, alas, even a Cynthia Rowley at T.J. Maxx is out of my reach right now.

    That color is just so perfect and the leather just looks oh so nice.
    You will definitely get YEARS of wear from this bag and feel fabulous every time you wear it…or at least I would!

    Pea green with envy!

    Great choice! The color is classic and I think the bag will age much better than the Chloe.

    omg, that bag is fabulous! Love the color and shape! I love Marc Jacobs items in general. I think it`s a great present to give to yourself and I`m sure it will stay in style – it`s just so chic and timeless! Will go with so many things and throughout the seasons.

    Pretty bag, but you, Americans, must be crazy. 🙂 Why do you spend so much money for things what you can only own? Why don’t you travel more to spend quality time with your loved ones? This 1195$ is more than the average salary for a month in my country, Hungary.

    You (I mean, Americans) spend much money on unnecessary stuffs and meet with your family from other states maybe once in a year, because it costs money. Don’t you think is it a little bit weird? 🙂

    I can understand why you’ve bought this beautiful bag, and I am sure, you worked a lot on your books, just sometimes, please, think about those things in life what are really important.

    the next time you have buyer’s remorse or feeling extra generous, send a bag down to Atl (or 5)! I’ve never had a designer bag (for shame!) and would give it a good home. ;0)

    I think that yes you should most definitely reward yourself. It’s not like the book is your sole income and hell you freaking deserve it!!! I love your bag! Like full on jealous of here. 🙂 I have been planning on purchasing another Louis Vuitton but maybe now I need to rethink my options. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen a Marc Jacobs bag in person. They sure do photograph beautifully though.
