It is my job to review bags and I love it; from classic bags, trendy bags, funky bags, weird bags, obnoxious bags, and sometimes downright strange bags- you name it I’ve seen it. So you can imagine how jaded one would get after staring at bags for hours day after day (over 850 days since Bag Snob began!) but not me, a great bag can still excite and delight me like nothing else! I am, however, tired of gimmicky bags with sky high prices that aim to shock. Which is why I am now obsessing over the Marcello de Cartier bag. I was neutral when it was first introduced but am finding myself falling in love with its classic lines and impeccable craftsmanship. I have always been a fan of Cartier watches and jewels but this is the first collection of bags that have captured my attention. For Spring Cartier offers gorgeous shades of blues and pinks that will enchant even the most jaded of Bag Snobs. I am glad I did not get the tobacco color last Fall because the blue petrol is absolutely gorgeous! Available in three sizes (small 14″x7″ $1,000, medium 17″x8″ $1,220, large 21″x9″ $1,800) and very reasonably priced. At Cartier Boutique- 972-726-7670.
