MARC by Marc Jacobs Petal To The Metal Evie Hobo

The bird is back. Here I was stupidly hoping Marc Jacobs decided to give us a bag with birds on it as a "humorous" one-time thing, but I was headed for disappointment. Another "Petal To The Metal" bag brings us more birds (well, only one bird this time). Once again, I'm totally peeved. This is a perfectly functional and chic design without the dumb bird embellishment. It sports a nice rounded shape and thick, supple leather exterior. It's spacious with plenty of storage options both inside and out. Speaking strictly from a design standpoint, the Petal To The Metal Elvie Hobo is quite "vanilla" which is fine with me. A bag like this can serve as a blank canvas allowing your clothes and other accessories to shine through, but, alas, the bird is front and center, ever present for all to see. It seems Jacobs is hell bent on making sure you enjoy his bird fetish as much as he does, but all I want to do is show him another kind of bird letting him know exactly what I think about this line of bags. What a pity he can't see my "bird" as easily as I can his, but I'm showing it right this moment just for fun ;-)
