It does look like a L.A.M.B. clutch, doesn’t it? But when you take a closer look at it, you’ll see the check pattern is finished with black and gold metallic leather instead of the L.A.M.B’s black and white pattern. This pretty thing is the Wristlet intrecciato clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs. The purse has top zip closure, signature lock detail and a leather wrist strap. Measuring 8.5″ x 6.5″ x 1″, the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is perfect for evening. It looks nice with the black dress and shoes shown above, but you can also pair this purse with jeans for a more casual look! Available at Net-A-Porter for $260. Have a great weekend, everyone and enjoy the Olympic Games!
Simple, practical and stylish are the words I will use to describe the Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Magazine Bag. This leather Marc Jacobs bag has silver hardware, double top handles and top zip closure. As usual, I love the pink bag but the black one is better for work or everyday use. The bag is roomy enough to hold a fashion magazine or a A4 size folder. The other reason I love about this messenger bag is…its removable shoulder strap! You can not only carry it in hand, but also wear cross body. Inside is lined with Marc Jacobs signature print. I think $398 is a very reasonable price and it is available at Saks.
Net-A-Porter has a further markdown on Marc Jacobs Dash Bag. This shoulder bag is made of chestnut leather with a quilted chocolate bottom. The pleating body matches perfectly with the gold link chain strap. There are also zipper compartments on each side and a middle compartment with a button fastening. The Dash is perfect for a variety of outfits and everyday use. Dimension: 14″ x 13″ x 6″. The bag was originally selling for $1450, NAP had reduced the price to $1015 last month and Now it is only $870! This bag is really cute, don’t wait until it is sold out!

I love this bag and I like the name of this shopper. The Marc by Marc Jacobs “Faux Real” Shopper is made of synthetic leather with top zip closure. I like the way they “printed” the details of belted logo tag, studs, topstitching, and contoured corners on the bag. It’s kind of cute! The tote is available in several colors: Brown, Cream, Midnight and Azalea. Each costs $118 at eLuxury and Piperlime. The dimensions of 16.25″x 17.75″x 2″ are ideal size for grocery shopping. There will be two other similar versions for Fall Collection, visit Marc Jacobs Website for more detail.

Mother’s Day is coming up soon. Any gift idea for your mom?! This year, I plan to buy my mom some flowers (a MUST) and a wallet/clutch from LV boutique. (My mother loves Louis Vuitton as much as she loves me! LOL) If you are thinking of a great gift idea for your mom, here are some of my suggestions.
This Prada Gauffre Flap Wallet is made with light gold nappa leather. It has a front flap with snap closure and a gold-tone Prada logo on front. Interior is lined with zip center compartment. This Prada wallet is 4 1/4″H x 7 1/2″W x 3/4″D. Available at Neiman Marcus for $460. If your mother is a Prada’s fan, she must love it!
The Fendi Medium Patent Baguette is a classic bag! It is made in black patent leather with gold-tone logo on front. There are two adjustable shoulder straps which are interchangeable; one with 6″ drop and the other with 25″ drop. Size: 11″W x 6.5″H x 2″D. Retails at Saks for $940.
I pick this Coach Soho Signature Cotton hobo because my mother loves denim bag. So, I think she would definitely like this bag. This denim hobo trimmed with lightweight leather has zip top closure and inside pocket. It is $158 selling at Coach.
The Dooney & Bourke Medium Logo Lock Satchel is simple but gorgeous! This white color is great for summer, too! The logo lock satchel is made is white leather and finished with contrast topstitching.

The LV Jokes Bags was sold out, the Pochette Bonbon Rose purse is the recent popular topic among handbag blogs, What’s next? How about this Firebird bag? These bags are all in the Summer 08 collection and designed by Marc Jacobs together with the American artist, Richard Prince. If you asked me whether I love the new Firebird bag, I would tell you I don’t know. But I found that people are very crazy for this baby. I really admire Marc Jacobs for taking the bold to make changes, adding value to this luxury brand and keeping LV brand vibrant. No doubt why he becomes so famous.
The velvet trimmed Firebird, featuring LV classic monogram, is big! Dimensions are 16.1″ x 14.1″ x 3.5″. The new shape, the creative design and the color combination really make this bag alluring and special. But the price is stunning, too! Is it worth $5400? Well…the fact that it is currently out of stock online should give you the answer.
Looking for a ladylike and bright color bag for work? You can consider this fire engine red Owl Leather Bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs. This bag gives you an elegant feel with a classic touch. The soft leather purse features a single top handle and adjustable shoulder strap. The inside is cotton twill lined with a zip pocket and cell phone pocket. The structured bag is 10″W x 8″H x 4″D and available at Saks for $398. Click here to see how people mix and match with this eye-catching handbag.
“Bag on Bags” would probably be one of the rules of this season. After launching Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag, Marc Jacobs seems to develop a similar idea on his new collection. I read through websites, blogs and forum and found many people’s negative opinions towards these bags. Well…“Mesh Lace Robert Bag On Bags” looks really weird and ugly. I would love to see the tote and the clutch as two pieces but not together. Otherwise, I think this idea is kind of different. What do you think?
