    Default Another handbag dilemma - GREEN Rebecca Minkoff and Marc Jacobs

    How many green bags does a girl need?


    ...newly fiscally responsible Gung says you only need one.

    Please help me make this decision:

    Envy MAM from Rebecca Minkoff or Emerald Blake from MJ
    (Keep in mind I already own multiple Blakes and MAMs)


    Rebecca Minkoff MAM in Envy



    Marc Jacobs Blake (These are not my pics; they are someone elses. My Blake - which is the same exact bag style and color is on the way to me and I will take original pictures of it then.)




    Envy MAM

    pros: One zipper/one compartment access enables you to throw your stuff in with ease. Can easily be dressed up or down. Has a shoulder strap. Regular zippers are easy to zip up and down effortlessly in a jam.

    cons: The strap looks kind of lame in green

    Bottom line: A beautiful, convenient, easy to use bag
    __________________________________________________ _
    Blake

    pros: Awesome awesome deal on a $995 dollar bag (I bought it NWT for $300). The color is stunning, and the blue suede interior is equally stunning. Its a classic, timeless, un-trendy bag. GORGEOUS

    cons: Industrial strength zippers require you to sit the bag down and hold it with one hand while you tug the zipper down. 3 compartments can mean great organization or just great pain in the ass.

    Bottom line:A sometimes pain in the ass bag to use that is timeless, classic, and incomparably gorgeous.

    Although you seem to have more cons on the side of the Blake, I do love this bag for its timelessness and style. The Blake wins hands down over the MAM IMO.

    I'd say the MAM. The Blake has too much going on to appreciate the color. I love that green and it really shows with the simplicity of the MAM. I would definitely keep the envy.

    I say the Blake sometimes you have to sacrifice fashion for convenience. Its a classic, you can dress up or down will look good with anything you should be able to fit more (book and mags), and you got a crazy good deal.

    my knee-jerk reaction was to keep the MAM, but after more thought....

    i know you have quite a few MAMs, right?
    what about the blake-- do you have more of that style? if not, then i vote for blake.... i think.
    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    OOOOH! difficult one!

    the Blake looks more functional, while the MAM looks more fashionable...

    I love the Blake and it is def. a beautiful bag, the only think that has me against it is the suede liner. It's gorgeous but from experience a suede lining can be hard to keep clean and looks dirty a lot faster! If something like that doesn't bother you then I would stick with the Blake!


    Wish-list:
    LV Damier Neverfull
    Balenciaga
