I honestly did not know what to make of this when I first came across it a couple months back. As first glance, many would detest the Marc Jacobs Evening Rana Pouch (SGD1699) as I did. I did not think it would be an appropriate partner for any black-tie gala event, much less a blind-date. Just imagine trying to explain the frog to your date.
So I gave it time, and whenever I walked past the Marc Jacobs DFS Scottswalk Galleria I would slow down, take a deep breath and pick it up. I held it in the the palm of my hand, and looked intently at the little gold frog. I would open the frame top and take a peek at the gorgeous metallic satin lining, with a single suede patch pocket. The golden nameplate and the hidden magnetic closure are also darling. And after time, it grew on me. It was quirky and gorgeous, all at the same time. I am on good terms with the frog now too, I named him Wilbur.
