I found a Marc Jacobs handbag (Rita's Dotty bag) on eBay and I couldn't resist! (I used rebate/consignment money and DH OK'ed it). I thought this would be a fun way to debut it--you know I love matchy matchy theme outfits. No color, which is atypical for me, but everything is cream/linen and black and it has enough pattern and texture to keep my interest. I'm calling it Morse code because of the dots and stripes. :) And I like how all the pieces either have some sort of dot or stripe on it. And the snake on the bag kind of echos the fish scales on the shoes.
What do you think? And any other suggestions for ways to wear this bag? Since the color is linen instead of white, I'm having a harder time picturing how to wear it (I would have paired it with my black and white polka dot shirt, but I feel like wearing it with true black and white pieces just makes the bag look dirty).
