MARC JACOBS ‘Rio Stardust’ Studded Satchel


I am having serious memory issues lately and can not recall if I have reviewed this bag before but a Twitter follower recently asked me if she should buy the Marc Jacobs Rio Startdust bag (above) or the D &G Miss Sicily and I gave my absolute vote to the Rio Stardust!  Feels weird to be loving on an MJ bag but I have to give props to his unwavering dedication to his quilted bags.  This one, updated with subtle studs and mini lock (useless I might add, could do without it but doesn’t kill me to look at it) is a great piece of summer arm candy!  I’d be careful when using the body strap with jeans, though.  What do you guys think of this bag?

  1. I’m not a fan of Marc Jacobs, so take this with a grain of salt…but I think for that price, you could have a fabulous bag. This is pretty ordinary to me, and with the quilting and the lock, looks like a mish-mash of trends I’ve already seen better executed elsewhere.

  2. I bought this bag in beige, but returned it. I liked it, but not enough. I prefer the Stam, as I think it will be a classic always.

  3. Handbags give a stylish look to the person who takes it along with them when they go out. People have more interest for handbags and they love having a variety of collections.
