basic - long bag wishlist post!



Marc by Marc Jacobs Sale $327.60
I can buy it after Christmas since I'll get money as presents most likely and I have a lot of work during the second half of december and could totally pay off my parents AND buy this gorgeous, buttery-looking-leather bag. Is is gross that I can almost feel the softness and velvety feel of super soft leather? I need to get more schedules for work! Haha. Drool drool, I want you MBMJ Totally Turnlock Quinn Bag. I know it's me since all I wear is black and I've bought lots of cheaper bags but I've still stuck to my trusty, shiny "snake skin" leather dooney and bourke bag, my first somewhat designer bag...so I know I'll keep using this one. Plus it's way bigger and I could fit my whole life into that bad boy!

I'm planning to ask for a good leather purse for my graduation present. Some kids ask for cars, computers, money to party...I'm probably going to ask for a lovely leather handbag...preferably Marc Jacobs?

Others I'm contemplating :



Mayle Sale $325
I don't know this brand but I'm drooling over this purse, this is my second choice...a very close second choice! The leather looks exquisite but the straps look short and I like to throw it over my shoulder especially since I'm probably going to jampack it since I will use these bags when I go to college/university in the fall!! yay!



Jill Stuart $375
This looks a bit on the small side but it's got lovely details, I'm only iffy on it since I might get sick of the little features. I really just need to get a sack to make me happy haha. I like her other bags too, they're all very reasonably priced compared to other bags (Sienna Miller's line is selling a bag for 800$, I believe as long as you don't really have a name for yourself in fashion...YOU ARENT ALLOWED TO SELL BAGS FOR EIGHT HUNDRED FRIGGIN DOLLARS &end rant.)



Oh hello there you sexy beast of a bag!
Marc by Marc Jacobs $528
I don't have too much to say about this one besides that it's gorgeous but I think I like the first one better...yeah, I do like the first one better but I don't really think I'm going to ask for the last one 1) too expensive 2)I'm not flipping over backwards for it like the first two 3) I feel like I'll get sick of it easily.

Now for some fun stuff....lol...things I look for in a bag :
  • SIZE - I like my bags HUGE. I put everything in there, phone, pencil case, make up bag, agenda, lunch, water bottle, reading books, the occasional school book....the kitchen sink...
  • Longer Strap - I hate carrying a hand bag. I feel like it's too low and since I'm short and I love big bags I'm scared the bag will scrape against the floor as I walk. I need to carry it on my shoulder since I put tons of stuff in it...therefore I need my shoulders to carry all the weight.
  • Colour - This one's simple... BLACK
  • Material - Leather, Leather, Leather!
  • Minimal details and accents, if I don't want to get sick of the bag it needs to be ultra plain and simple :P
I really, really like the last bag but I don't want to ask my parents for such an expensive gift because I'd feel guilty and because I'm a jerky little only-child who will probably want more than one gift for grad haha, I shouldn't really be proud of that.

Anyways thank for reading this ... if you did haha. Long post, but I just really want to make sure I don't waste $300+ on a bag I'm not completely in love with. I don't mind saving up for something expensive I just have to make sure I don't make the wrong choice. Haha, this sounds like a big life-changing moment, but it almost is since my life is pretty much in my hand bag :)

I really like the one you are planning on buying...but I also love the Jill Stewart one. C'est tres chic! speaking of french, what does your blog name mean. When I translated it (erm...I am still in french I, but...) it was "I like your mom," which is funny, but I was not positive if it was correct!
xDD

roxanne said...

i am on exactly the same quest.. exactly. whereas i just surf aimlessly about, nixing every option (i have the weirdest, most minute criteria for bags), you've actually compiled the greatest hits in one post.. super helpful, great post, love this blog.

jaime said...

May Kasahara said...

the cape came as two parts!

a button up dress and the cape - both with the same bobbly gold buttons.

endless combinations to be had. It's at urbanoutfitters by rapscallion.

That first marc jacobs bag is absolutely beautiful . . . .YOU MUST BUY IT! It is perfection! And the inside lining is even more inviting! BUY IT! On the first day of january sales I'm heading straight to Selfridges to but either the marc jacobs or dior bag of my dreams! Thats if father xmas doesn't bring me them!
