Marc Jacobs Quilted Single Bag

The Marc Jacobs Quilted Single bags have been on my wishlist for quite a while (I posted about the large version back in 2010). While I still adore the look of the Marc Jacobs Large Single, I don't really need another shoulder bag at the moment.
Marc Jacobs Large Single - Isn't this bag beautiful?
What I do desperately need is a crossbody bag! It's funny because I think a lot of moms go directly from a diaper bag to a crossbody bag. Although the strap alters the lines of your clothes and isn't the most flattering - nothing beats having your hands free to attend to your little ones (and they definitely need a LOT of attention!).
bad quality crossbody bag
I previously purchased this bag but it wasn't of the best quality (the inner tubing poked through the lining!) and I had to return it. Since I'd be using this bag daily (for the school run) I decided to invest in my dream bag instead. I got the Marc Jacobs Quilted Black Small Single bag in Black leather. It's pretty small - the dimensions are 7.5"W X 6"H X 2"D with a 22" strap drop - but I think the small size is good, as I REALLY need to pare down what I carry with me.

I'm already very impressed by the durability and quality of this bag - I especially love the double stitching detail. And while I plan on using this as an everyday bag, this also works as an elegant evening clutch if you tuck the shoulder chain inside - multi-purpose!

Since I'm sharing new purchases, I thought I'd show my hot pink H&M necklace and colorblock t-shirt from Garage... a love for neon pink has somehow snuck up on me!

Do you use cross-body bags? Which is your favorite?

  2. What a great purchase! I have never used a cross body bag but I'm still very much in the larger than life that double as diaper bags. :)

    1. Oh yes - I remember the larger than life bags :-) Was so happy once the twins were finally potty trained and I didn't need to carry so much stuff with me!

  6. Love this bag! I was eyeing it the other day as well, but I already own the large single and don't want to get divorced :) This is such a great option. I love the ease of crossbody bags, it's so freeing to not be lugging around a huge, heavy bag all day!

    1. You know how much I LOVE your MJ bag!!! And now that I have this bag, I'm amazed at the quality...it has kind of made me want the large single too...but I will pace myself LOL! MJ bags are pricey - but their quality is outstanding and totally worth it - can't say the same about a lot of other bags - where you're paying for the name but not getting something long lasting.
