I definitely have a soft spot for metallic, especially gold. I think it’s something to do with the gorgeous golden glow it emits every time the sun shines on it; it’s got that certain warmth. This Baroque XL Single Shoulder Bag by Marc Jacobs, therefore, pretty much hits the nail on the fashion head. It also, simultaneously, makes for the perfect investment for next season, considering A/W’11’s metallic shimmer trend.
With its gold-toned quilted leather and hardware with sliding lock closure (AND small detachable key – so cute), chain-link shoulder strap and quality flap-over, this shoulder bag will be your statement accessory for Autumn/Winter’11 (and such a gorgeous hue as this will also take you through to S/S’12). Work it with those rich jewel tones that littered our A/W’11 catwalks, be it citrine, emerald or sapphire, along with next season’s innovative fresh ‘soft-line’ that blew us away on the runway.
Large enough to fit everything in – from your IPhone and Blackberry, to your make-up bag (note to self: I’m talking about the small one, not the large one you actually use)!
