With this tote....
I purchased it after contemplating for a year whether it was worth my money and my arm hang time. I needed something for everyday use, that I can throw therapy materials into, lunch, maybe my laptop etc.
Let me just say I'm just enamored with this bag. It is a canvas tote, not leather, which is something new to me. When I first opened it up, I was initially disappointed about the texture and size. However, I came to realize that I had not fully opened this bag up! Once I did it dropped another 2 inches at the bottom.
The bag has distressed letters that spell out MARC BY MARC JACOBS STANDARD SUPPLY in all caps, with model number and type: Tote on the next lines. On the inside There is a zipper with 2 cell phone pockets.
This bag can be used for the gym, shopping, grocery shopping, or travel carry on. I easily put my gym clothes in it with room to spare. Oh, and it DOES zip up, which is a feature I look for. This is one of the reasons that I didn't pursue any of Louis Vuitton's Keep Alls.
The best thing? The most you will pay for this bag is $148 bucks. I snagged it on sale a couple of weeks ago from PIPERLIME
It comes in: Black with White Letters, White with Black Letters, Tan/Brown with Dark Brown Letters, and Turquoise Blue (If you can find it). It also comes in a larger size. I think that would be too much unless you used it as actual luggage.
Well that is my review, and I am very pleased. I love you Marc
P.S. Bloomingdales Has them on sale now for $111.00 :-) Thank me later ;)

I thought I blogged this, but apparently I just put it on my @holdmypurse twitter account.
Anyway, according to the wonderful folks over at Louis Vuitton Lover There is a shortage of monogram canvas bags. Why? The demand is higher than the supply! So much for the recession huh? I must say they are an awesome investment (snicker) and you can't go wrong. Timeless pieces that never go out of style. Louis Vuitton makes subtle updates to these classic bags ever so often, be it changing the color on the inside, adding a cell phone pouch etc. Anyway, until they open another factory, customers are allegedly limited to one per day. I think we can handle that right?
