I love this bag, but sadly do not yet own one. On a recent trip to Paris, I saw an American lady carrying this bag. “Oooh,” I said to her. “You’ve got the Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Bag there”. She looked fondly at her bag, and said “Oh, is that what it’s called? I never knew…” So which colour shall I treat myself to then? I’ve been a good girl and I really deserve one – it’s a toss up between the nude (which will go with everything) and the orange, which will announce “Mandy’s arrived!”
