i dont know sotfgrey, I like it because it's different and its very boho like. But for $315 i dont know. As long as that price is your speed i would say get it.

very funky...i'd like it over a jean jacket or flowy linen. and stuff from marni tends to not go out too fast...i call it flea market chic

thanks for posting the photo highheels...

i like the bohemian feel...and it works brilliantly with the distressed frye's...

i like that it is msgr style and the it looks tough with the rough leather and then it has the aged brass little flowers...


not sure about the price...but i think it's ok...

For me, it depends on the size (total sidebar my dog just rested her head on my arm and it is too cute) anyway, if it is in fact messenger size I think it's a decent price because of the leather and very cute but if it's more purse sized like it looks in the photo then ehh, not too crazy.

If it is large then I like it...i think it would be really nice a few months down the road when it is a little beaten up...

...but if its a medium to small size then i dont know

what are its measurements?

i am a small human...so a large mesgr bag is not for me...

this is medium size and i'm happy to say that i stand before you the proud owner of a new marni bag...it's even better in person...the leather is darker and the quality is outstanding...i'm in love...no more doubts...

i will have this as part of my wardrobe for many years to come...

thx again to all who replied...

Looks like it's your style. I doubt you'll have any troubles finding anything to wear it with.

For digicams I love my canon digital elph.
