My new backpack is loud, bold and larger than Gracie

Gracie Goes A Backpack
I was in for a shock when I saw the sheer size of my new backpack. Holy Moly! I know it’s a computer backpack but S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y? This is gigantic! It is OMG…larger than life! And not only is it oversized, it’s got really loud and bold graphics! Surely nobody’s gonna miss this bag from a mile. HA. Talk about making a statement!

This is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Dynamite Logo 13″ Computer Backpack. Yes, yes, the brand is all over the bag. Well, I usually don’t like such in-your-face, over-the-top design but I made an exception because I thought it looks cute on a backpack.

Anyway, I had clicked on the “add to cart” too fast when I spotted this bag in my excitement. I had happily thought that this would be my new go-to bag for the season especially since my last Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Isa Backpack was a hit with many. I had to take some time to get over the initial shock just staring at the size.

But my husband, who first laughed out loud when he saw the bag and suggested that I put Gracie in there thought it was okay after seeing me carry it. A colleague also said it’s a bit big but it’s not totally overwhelming. So there. I have my back covered now. Maybe I can do an OFTD afterall. (#k8SjZc9Dxk_#k8SjZc9Dxk)

    I am very surprised that this is a 13″ laptop backpack! I could not tell from the comparison with Gracie (which is particularly cute in the penultimate photo!) so I checked it out in internet and found a photo where a model carries it. It’s 48x30cm, as large as my Samsonite backpack (not really feminine but very functional & resilient) which I use to carry my 16″ workstation laptop plus all the stuff I carry to work (I just carry the backpack – no handbag).

    However, the most important thing for these bags is that it sits ergonomically on your shoulders and back. So as long as you feel good carrying it when loaded, it should be fine! ? And you could carry Gracie too!

    I don’t carry a laptop in my bag but I carry a lot of stuff to work daily–from a 1.2 litre water bottle to my lunch. If I carry a tote, I end up with 2 bags so a backpack is good. However, this one doesn’t come with a side pouch and it makes it inconvenient when I’m listening to my iPod. It’s bulky too but otherwise, functional like you’d mentioned.

    Omg.. Gracie is super cute!! My Lhasapso looks so much like her..!!

  4. Sesame says:

    Yes, she is cute. Lhasapsos are very beautiful! Do you have to take special care of the hair?

  5. Pranali says:

    Yeah.. Or else their coat is prone to ticks and flees.. We bathe her one a week as she gets dirty pretty soon and have to clean her ears too.. Also the hair around her eyes need trimming cos at times they poke them in the eyes..!! So lot of work to keep her in top shape!!

  6. Sesame says:

    Wow, that’s a lot of work to maintain her hair. I use frontline to prevent fleas and ticks on Gracie but she has rather dry skin that is prone to dandruff! I’m still figuring out what’s wrong with it–if it’s caused by diet or something else.
