Bag Battles: Marc by Marc Jacobs vs. LeSportsac

October 21st, 2011

Marc by Marc Jacobs Snakes on a Frame Crossbody, $298. LeSportsac Divine Sunglasses Wristlet, $25. Both via ShopBop.

In my three years at PurseBlog, I’ve written a lot of posts that I never expected to write as part of my job here. For example, I never imagined myself Photoshopping a picture of a small, yappy dog next to a very expensive clutch for comparison’s sake. I never expected to write half of the things I’ve written about all manner of Real Housewives. Today’s Bag Battle, though? It might take the cake.

When I first saw the Marc by Marc Jacobs Snakes on a Frame Crossbody, I smiled at its relative novelty. A sunglasses bag! Cute! But yesterday morning I noticed the LeSportsac Divine Sunglasses Wristlet, and the coincidence seemed to fun to pass up. Of course, with two bags that share an unconventional theme, we have to put it to a vote: Which one do you like better? Check out larger photos of both bags and vote in our poll, after the jump.

At $298 vs. $25, the LeSportsac version definitely wins for kitsch value for the money. I could see having something silly like this in my purse to hold a few small items, but I don’t think I could spend a couple hundred dollars to wear the Marc by Marc version as a real handbag. Therefore, my vote goes firmly with LeSportsac.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.
