When it comes to accessorizing, I’m all for experimentation: I own more shoes than you could get me to admit; I change up my sunglasses on the daily; I rotate my jewelry so that even my favorite pieces get some much-needed downtime in favor of mixing things up. But when it comes to handbags, I am a big believer in committing to the LBB (little black bag).
Qualifying as a holy grail LBB is more difficult than one might think. A bag must be big enough to hold a considerable amount of day-to-day crap (the kind of stuff that’s not technically necessary but does inevitably accumulate… and therefore, perhaps actually sort of is?) and yet small enough to transition to feeling evening-appropriate with ease. It needs to feel in line with trends without necessarily being on-trend to give it a year-round quality that means you can wear it just about every damn day.
Let me ask you: When you find a bag that ticks all these boxes is there really a reason to change it up and run the risk of leaving the house without your license or your glasses, or perhaps most importantly, your favorite lip balm? (The answer is no.) All that’s left, my friends, is find your perfect LBB. Without further ado, allow me to introduce The Marc Jacobs Snapshot DTM ($325), the bag that deep-down you maybe always knew you needed.
