Shopbop purchase

One of my favourite US shopping site is SHOPBOP. They stock their own house label as well as lots of designer items. I had been searching for a clutch with a detachable strap for quite some time now. I recently found a MARC by MARC JACOBS on sale for 50% off! Best thing about is that they offer free EXPRESS international shipping when you spend over US$100 which is not hard to accumulate considering the brands they carry.

My clutch was well packaged and protected

MARC by MARC JACOBS // Jane at the Disco in Twinkle
In real life it's a dark aubergine/purply eggplant shimmer colour. The hardware trim is gold, although sometimes it looks rose gold. Inside the bag had 6 credit card slots and the large compartment is big enough to hold money, change, phone, and keys. The strap is detachable which can be used for a dinner date. With the strap on the bag is good for clubbing because of the shimmery leather. I also use the bag for a nights out with my girls because it keeps your hands free. 

Pros of shopbop
  • very fast shipping 
  • order confirmation and shipment emails
  • good sales
  • easy to navigate site
  • customer reviews
  • item measurements
So far I have not had a negative experience, will update if I ever do =]


  1. I LOVE shopbop and I love the bag you picked out. Great buy!

  2. I'm too poor to buy anything from Shopbop (well I could, but I'm really tentative to do so because of the prices!), but the free shipping is definitely a bonus haha! The eggplant colour of the clutch is just so gorgeous. I love the glitters too :D

  3. Gorgeous bag! I love Shopbop, especially the fast and reliable shipping. I bought my MBMJ Groovee bag from there :)

  4. OMG 50%!? ahhh lucky you!! I have a wallet under this line and also purchased from shopbop. heheee :P So the first thing I did when I read your post is to go to shopbop though i couldnt find anymore 50% Marc by MJ >:(
