Do you ‘heart’ Marc Jacobs’ heart-covered ‘Andy’ tote bag

Marc_jacobs_handbag

Readers, meet Andy. Andy, as you can see, is a tote bag. He is blue. He is encrusted with hearts. He’s kinda… kinda flaky looking, almost as if all of those hearts might just drop right off at any second.  Presumably they won’t, though, because Andy here is a Marc Jacobs creation, and not even Marc Jacobs would charge $1395 for a bag that left bits of itself scattered everywhere it went. Or we would hope not, anyway.

What do you think of Andy, though? Has MJ gone too far (again), or do you heart all the hearts? Tell us! (Or, if you like it THAT much, you can buy it – you’ll find it at Nordstrom.

    Heart it, of course. And not in a ‘Marc can do no wrong’ way (he can, and has) but I’m a sucker for anything with hearts on.

    I neither love it nor hate it. It looks a lot cheaper than $1400, and reminds me of 1990s fashion.

    Yes another great inspiration for anyone who is crafty. Why spend the dough?

    I love the colour, but it’s a bit too twee for me. That said, I do really want to own a bag called Andy! 😀

    ugh. personally, i like the colour (and probably the bag itself if it was minus the hearts) but i think the hearts look slightly d.i.y as if a 3 year old went at it with paper hearts and a stapler. then again, should a little girl be carrying it, i would think it was quite cute! hm…conclusion: I dont like it for myself.

    Adorable, but not worth the money.

    I like this bag, but mine is definitely not an unbiased opinion because I am a huge fan of the Marc Jacobs collection – I own at least 20 MJ handbags, as well as multiple pairs of shoes and clothing items. I have seen the bag in person at Neiman Marcus and it is actually very good quality. It doesn’t look as cheap in person. That being said, I will probably try to pick this bag up when it goes on sale at the end of the season, as I have done with all my MJ bags. I definitely wouldn’t pay full retail for it, but only because I’m a cheapskate. Anyway, it gets my stamp of approval.

    It’s cute, I like it better than the nude one, which is off white! We need more hearts in this world:)

    Very cute! I don’t think i’d spend the money on it, though.
