Guess What I Bought???

Greetings from beneath a pile of books, papers, and way more highlighters than needed. Ever. For anything.

SO! As some of you faithful readers (and friends who have been harassed with my countless recounts of how much I've been coveting this item) know, I have been eyeing and drooling over the Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q. Groovee bag in Saddle. Drooling. I have seriously been disgustingly obsessed with it and have been back and forth about it for a while. The major hold back was that it was $498, and wayy beyond the means of a simple and broke law student.

At one point, I purchased 2 of it from Saks, in attempt to get the "Buy 2 bags for $1000 and get $400 back" Awesome deal, but I fell $4 short and couldn't cancel my order. So I had 2 unopened MBMJ bags in my room, staring at me in the face, taunting me with the luxe leather and gold hardware.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I ended up getting 25% off both bags, and along with trusty Ebates (see blog below), bought them for $365 each! That's a wowzer of a discount! I am selling the other one on ebay shortly for a discount off of it's original price of $498, since it is sold out on Bloomies, Saks, Nordie, and eLuxury. Hot commodity people! Let me know if you're interested, faithful readers get an even bigger discount!

P.S. Maybe I didn't mention before, but I was eyeing the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini, which is also very gorgeous. I haven't seen it in person yet, but it was a bit more than what I had anticipated spending ($550). Who knows, I may decide differently come summer!
