Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Baby Groovee

This is not the first time I’m waxing lyrical about this little bundle of joy, and it certainly won’t be the last. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Baby Groovee has been, for the longest time, a classic staple in their family of bags, appearing season after season in different colours and hardware combinations.

Measuring 30 cm by 17 cm, it is definitely one roomy bag even though the specifications might not seem that way. I’ve looked into some Baby Groovee bags and I’ve seen the usual suspects (you know, wallet, card case, phone, pouch 1, pouch 2, pouch 3), along with a mini water bottle and a small foldable umbrella tucked snugly inside.

What’s more, you can carry this baby three different ways, which is always a bonus, either by way of the removable shoulder strap (over the shoulder or across the body) and sitting pretty in the crook of your arm.

I especially love the one  in Dark Blue I just spotted on Net-A-Porter which retails for GBP251 (around SGD520 before shipping), or check out the ones in Hickory or Cashew at Shopbop, where they cost USD348 each (around SGD458). Shopbop also offers free international shipping for orders above USD100, which pretty much means it makes more sense to purchase from Shopbop online.

In Singapore, you can check them out at Marc by Marc Jacobs Mandarin Gallery and Ngee Ann City.

    Hi there! I just purchased and received the MbMJ Pretty Nylon Backpack from Shopbop, so pleased with its service and free shipping! But now I’ve a problem. Upon visual inspection the width of the straps seemed to be unequal, so I placed it side by side and indeed it was! I measured it to be 0.5 cm narrower, and the padding seems unequal too! Sigh… What should I do, write an email and send it back? I’ve already sent one back last month due to a defect!

    Hi Bagaholicboy, I love reading your blog and came to know about Shopbob’s free shipping in another of your posts.

    I am now trying to place an order with Shopbob for a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag! Would really appreciate it if I could get some advice from you on shipping. Do you know what the “Customs and Duties Deposit” of $29.26 is about? Apparently it is refundable if it is not incurred. Is it for GST?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi, is Shopbop selling really authentic stuff, because recently I made a purchase online for this marc jacob pouch. Later to realise, after inspecting the zipper, with the help of some tips, that it is replica. Very much disappointed.

      Hi Evelyn, that’s a very serious accusation to make, especially since Shopbop is 100% authentic. Did you email them with your concerns, or did any MbMJ SA verify this to be indeed fake?

    Hey BB, if it came down to a choice between the baby groovee in cashew and the Peachy Faridah Bag, which one would you pick? Love the delightful colour of the cashew but am a sucker for the lining of the Faridah.
