Bag Watch: Your bag is so summery! Where did you get your bag?
Shina: Thanks! I actually got mine from Nordstrom Rack like five years ago. I initially picked it up to use as a beach bag. But now that the straw tote trend is back, I’ve been using it as a general day bag.
BW: Straw totes seem like they can be a hassle, do you find this one easy to use?
Shina: Yeah I think so! It’s super light and I can put a lot inside. I also like that it came with a pouch on a chain. At the beach I’m also able to fit a whole towel which is nice.
BW: What else do you like about this bag?
Shina: I love the pop color – it just adds a lot to the overall look and feel of the bag. I’m so glad I didn’t donate this bag back in the day…trends really do come back around!
BW: Is there anything you dislike about it?
Shina: The main gripe I have with this tote is with how wide the opening is. Most straw totes don’t come with a zipper, so this one is no different. But when I’m walking around the city, I feel like the wide opening on this tote just means my wallet could be easily pick pocketed.
The entire MARC by Marc Jacobs line has been discontinued but you can find the Rosa tote pre-loved here (neon coral, $112).
