Real vs. Steal – Marc Jacobs The Single Quilted Leather Bag

I don’t know that I would advocate purchasing a huge neon green bag but a small brightly colored purse is something I can definitely get behind. You may initially shy away from wearing a turquoise or hot pink handbag, but trust me when I say that it will quickly become almost like a neutral in your closet. There to jazz up any subdued outfit or pair of jeans. I love Marc Jacobs‘ The Single Quilted bag for this purpose because it comes in super fun colors but in a very classic shape. I particularly like the hot pink color (as seen on Whitney Port below) but the purple would also be great. Now, I’ll be right here when you feel like buying me an early birthday present.

UPDATE (03/30/2013): Found another great MJ Single bag alternative by Lulu for under $30! Yay! This bag comes also in coral or white.

ModCloth Love is a Bag-lefield Bag

ModCloth‘s Love is a Bag-lefield bag (don’t they come up with the cutest product names?) is what we’re calling an MJ meets Chanel love-child. The shape of the bag and the studs is fairly identical to Whitney’s MJ above, but the chain/leather strap is very Chanel-esque. I love this bag. For $43.99, I kinda feel like everyone should pick this one up. The hot pink works especially well during summer months and I say splurge on a great black bag; skimp on the brightly colored, fun one!
