Real vs. Steal – Marc Jacobs Quilted Stam Bag

I already mentioned I am by no means a handbag expert. I think I own about 10-15 bags and usually have around 2 or 3 in rotation per season which works out totally fine for me. However, from time to time I find myself obsessing over a particular handbag such as the Marc Jacobs “Stam” bag which was named after topmodel Jessica Stam. The satchel has some obvious Chanel references (e.g. the quilted leather or the gold chain), but I’d still consider it unique enough to stand on its own.

BagInc “The Inescapable It Bag Of The Decade”

UPDATE (05/30/2011): Stupid name but awesome bag for an awesome price. I love that BagInc is so blunt about their bags being “designer inspired” (well, it’s a little bit beyond just the inspiration, isn’t it? ;)). Anyway. $43. Awesome!

  • Ha! Yes. I love it. I work at Handbag Heaven, and I carried our Sami this summer (in purple) and loveloveloved it. I actually blogged about it on our blog!

    That bag is seriously wonderful. Thanks for the mention!

    PS I love Ashley Tisdale. She wins, in my heart.

  • Hey Terryl,

    thank you for your comment. The “Sami” is such a nice bag, wish I’d have it, too. LOL. 🙂

    P.S.: Ashley, really? I think a clutch would’ve been more appropriate on the red carpet, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion 😉

    I have the “Sami”. It’s so beautiful! Not only does it look expensive but it has a lot of room inside. Every one of my friends wanted to know where I bought it and how much it was. They all couldn’t believe it was so inexpensive but expensive looking. I even get compliments from people I do not know, so that says something in itself!
