When it comes to handbags, I love to ooh and ahh at fantasy bags as much as the next girl—and I guess you could say that it goes along with the territory—but there’s something to be said about an understated, stylish, affordable bag that is both luxurious and attainable. The Marc Jacobs Mini Dwntwn Shoulder Bag is just that. With an asymmetrical front detailing and golden hardware, this bag is the perfect example of fashion meets function. Crafted in soft leather but retailing for just under $400, this bag is the perfect day bag for the girl who doesn’t stop moving.
I love this bag for ever day for a few reasons. First, a great top-zip bag is ideal for running around. It’s super easy to get in and out of without having to stop to unhook or fumble with a buckle. Second, not only is the interior super roomy, but it features an interior zip pocket, as well as smartphone pockets, meaning everything you carry for a day of running around stays super organized. Surprise, surprise: I love this bag in the black, but it’s also available in Sable and Blue Sea. Overall dimensions are 11″ L x 4″ W x 7″ H.
