Marc Jacob Venetia Bag

Marc Jacob is creative and the brand offers savvy gals classic pieces which she will enjoy for many seasons. The MJ Venetia bag is one of these classic handbags even after years of use, I still adore the bag every time I take it out from the closet. Since it is a sage green color, I tend to use it for spring and summer only. However, a gal can become a little tire after carrying the bag for a while as it's quite a heavy bag due to solid thick leather, suede interior and all the hardware. I tend to travel light with my bags, so I really don't put that much inside as seen in the picture. My Venetia bag, with minimum goodies such as wallet, key, phone, a small make-up bag and a business card holder, weights a little over 5 pounds. I get a work out every time I use it. Although I adore the bag but it weights a ton at the end of the day. MJ Venetia is still available in most upscale department store or the boutique for $1195. So what is your favorite work-your-arm bag?

  4. I've bought a MJ bag too recently. I bought it in Paris, and I think the proper name is Owl Lady Bag, it's in red, but I've the same problem you have, it's quite heavy. Despite that, I am wearing it almost every day!

  5. I love Marc and I love that bag- especially the green color. Although I think I would use it year round since it's a darker shade (unless it's lighter in person).

  7. I have a couple of Chloés that work my arms. I had to retire one because it worked my shoulder so hard!

    Those MJ bags are very well made. This one is a beaut.

    what a great bag! it's so worth spending on a classic shape since it'll be good for years to come. my classic arm workout bag is my morning after bag by rebecca minkoff.

  10. That is a great looking bag. I am currently looking for a staple for spring and summer like that...I have a dark green suede bag that's about the same size which I love, but I think it really needs to be retired when the weather hits 80 and above!
