The Marc by Marc Jacobs line has taken a turn for the traditional this season. It's cut down on the showier, edgier styles and focused on ladylike tailoring and timeless looks. Luckily, it's still retained that Marc Jacobs quirkiness, and I'm a big fan of the new direction. In an economy like this, it's hard to imagine spending oodles of money on a bag that will be out of style in two seasons.
The Hayley's black leather exterior is pebbled in a way that screams "classic." Who doesn't need an inky black tote that goes with everything? While the overall effect of the bag is traditional and super wearable, the details are a little retro. Like the large front pouch pocket, which is a very convenient place to stow your phone. The pocket gives the bag a 70s sort of hip-to-be-square aesthetic
I really like the style of this bag. There's nothing ostentatious about it, but it has great seaming and a tailored look that will make it great for office garb or preppier casual looks. The turnlock clasp is a quirky touch that keeps the look fresh and young.
I don't usually recommend a tote bag for $500, but the Hayley is so versatile and practical, not to mention beautiful, that I really think it's one to grab.
