    Default Should I return my Marc Jacobs Venetia?

    I love the look of the Venetia but I dont love the look of the Venetia's corners if that makes any sense.

    Take a look at my Red Blake, for example. The overall look (corners included) give a clean and uniform look to the bag.


    Now my Black Venetia has these slouchy little corners that dont straighten up unless you lodge something in there like a tennis ball....but Im wondering..is that just the way its supposed to be and adds to the charm of the Venetia?

    It bugs me on the Black Venetia because I feel the corners make the bag look a tad bit unkempt and not as uniform as say, the red Blake.

    What do you think?

    Should I keep it because its beautiful, hard to find, the slouchy corners are just the way the Venetia is ,and I scored a great deal?

    Or should I return it because the corners suck and I can find a better black bag that looks classier, more put together and more chic? And if so, what black bag would you suggest that is upscale, classy and can be worn for dressy and casual occasions (but leaning towards dressy)?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hm...it's nice but, I don't like how the corners don't look clean.

    Do they corners sag even when you are carrying it?

    That was going to be my question. How does it look when you carry it?

    I the Venetia but I do not like how it looks in the pics. But, my thought is who cares what it looks like when you are not carrying it??

    Can you post a modeling pic of it?

    ^Good point. Here is a pic of it hanging and it does look more normal now. What do you think?

    Hm, it still looks a little odd...like it was smooshed for too long and it stayed that way, IMO!

    yeah, it still looks strange. Maybe after you put your things in it and carry it for a while the leather will stretch and the shape will look better?? IDK?

    I think it looks better when it's hanging... but then again...

    I think you should be 100% satisfied with your bag (especially a brand spankin' new one) or it's flaws will always be in the back of your mind and you may not enjoy it as much as you should...

    ... but that's just my opinion

    I'm thinking the same thing Jess. You can see that it was marked down, so maybe it was squished in with a bunch of other sale bags.

    What a great price, and beautiful bag!!! I love the Venetia, I'm saving for its cousin, lol (Manhattan GM) The black is gorgeous. I'm still mad for passing up a metallic pewter one, and I really like the Blake's color, also a good pick!

    But I do see how that is a nuisance, but I'm wondering if they'd go away with usual wear? I'm not certain but I feel like if it had some weight in it that it would pull them out. Perhaps fill it up with some heavy things (heck even a small dumbbell if you had one may do the trick), leave it hanging for a day or so and see what happens, if there's no change and it still bothers you perhaps return it. But I had a smooshed bag once and it just went away naturally with normal wear.

    I see what you mean about the corners. Can you try putting a magazine in there maybe to straighten them out? Just leave it in there for a day or so & see what happens. Try different things & if nothing happens, return it. It seems like it is bothering you & it is just going to keep on bothering you if it doesn't change & by that time it will be too late to return it! It is a beautiful bag at a great price!

    It is too expensive a bag to not be totally and absolutely in love with it. Take it back.
