MARC JACOBS 'Mini Denim' Stam Bag
First Stam for me
I saw this Stam while shopping with my personal stylist, Paul. He knows how much fun we have shopping for bags. I have never owned a Stam for a number of reasons. The regular Stam has (for me) has proportion issues. The regular Stam has such exaggerated proportions and hardware and materials, it just put me off, although I love a kisslock bag. And, the weight. The weight of the chain -- which looks to be removable. When I saw the Mini Denim Stam, it was a match made in Nordstrom for me. It is a lovely little bag, with a subtle golden thread throughout the quilting. Denim to make it sporty and a and I get my kiss-lock, too. Just make sure you know the little trick to open those babies :-)
You will love it. I am a hand bag lover. I have a stable full of bags and don't need any others. But I did fall in love with this and I think if you dislike the original size this bag is for you!
Cute, awesome bag
I just bought this bag today. It is my first MJ designer bag.... Two items of note about this bag in contrast to other stams.... the long strap is all leather, not chain. Also, the bag itself is not as heavy as the leather version. I held the leather+chain version with this one and cannot believe how light this is to carry in comparison! The denim is a rich deep color, the tan leather is a lovely warm caramel and the gold quilting stitches are SO PReTTY! The only potential negatives....the red lining of the bag may not be very stain resistant. Thats my #1 worry, but I will be sure to use pouches to hold my cosmetics and will baby it. Oh, 1 more thing... the long strap is cushioned and very comfortable. A++++++ awesome bag!
