Marc Jacobs Stam bag & Brokeback mountain - What do you think

I have this horribe disease
its called....
'Poor girl wants Marc Jacob bag'
lol! ooh god!
But theres always replicas right, and where i live people dont even know who Marc Jacobs is never mind work out if im carrying a replica or not!
Ive finally reached the I want a quilted bag stage... and i know its old but i keep being draged to the Marc Jacobs stam bag... in Navy because I love navy right know. Thats the replica its still real leather and $150 im probably going to get it... what you think? maybe another colour?

Brokeback Moutain - Ennis Del Mar
I always said I wouldn't watch Brokeback Mountain, I'm not the kind of person who finds gay relationships comfortable to watch (sorry that's just me) so I didnt watch it no matter how fantastic the reveiws were. But the day after Heath Ledger died a movie channel played a tribute night and Brokeback mountain was starting so me and my friend decided to watch, kind of out of respect as it was his most awarding film.
I want to talk about the effects & emotions this film gives us, I have read alot of blogs saying it changed there lives. Why and how? This film has deffently effected me else I wouldn't be blogging about it.
My emotions were so mixed and confused. I wanted to be upset for Ennis Del Mar and I felt like I should have been but I just wasn't, maybe because I personly find the relationship arkward or because I see the bad in him and think of Alma. Alot of my emotions were for Alma. I didnt have many feelings towards Jack Twist I thought he was abit naive and less complex than Ennis. I think Jack was actually gay and in denial were as Ennis was totally confused, Ive read somewhere that Ennis is actually bi sexual but more on the straight side... and he would have never even thought about being gay unless he had met Jack.
Everything Heath Ledger did in this film was amazing, the tone of his voice, his attitude, his accent, even the way he holds himself. I adored the aging process in this film. I think Jake n Heath used great sutle ways to show aging.
I was also impressed with Anne Hathaway, her last scene when she's talking to Ennis is so arkward and gritty it was great (although I was shocked when the Princess got her boobs out lmao)
I found myself watching this film again with more concentration but I just don't get why this film has effected me so much? So I wanted to ask you? Was it the love story? Would you have felt the same if it was a hetrosexual relationship an there was a reason for them not being able to be togetherOr was it the fact they were men? Did it change your feeling towards male relationships? or was it something totally different

Sorry I really am not homophobic lmao even if this post makes out like I am!

Oh and im sorry about the swearing at the start of my video! one of my fav scenes ever!

I watched the movie when it first came out. I felt sorry for Michelle Williams character. Finding out your husband is gay, like that ..

I adore Brokeback Mountain, I'm reading the short story as part of my dissertation. I don't think Ennis is gay, I think he just found a kindred spirit in Jack Twist and fell for him. He was caught up in the era and felt a lot of resentment for his situation. But Jack was like an addiction to him, one he absolutely needed. He was a constant in his life - his wife left him, his job sucked and he was a nobody, but Jack was there. I don't think he would have been gay without Jack and he definately won't be gay after Jack. Jack was more willing to give their relationship a try and I agree, he was definately naive. It's such a tragic tale and gets me close to depression every time! Sorry for the analysis there!
*PS, good choice with The Jam song. It's one of my all time favourites!*

I have that disease too! My friend got four pairs of Marc Jacobs a couple weeks ago for about $200 from a sample sale. I am so envious.

First up, that bag is a good substitute for an MJ, and the colour is lovely! You know, the midnight blue - love it <3

Brokeback Mountain...I was really touched by that film too. I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that it was a gay relationship. I'm all for gay marriages and I believe people should be accepted for who they are, but to see it on screen, is completely different. The emotions were also really well expressed because the acting was phenomenal. Just my two cents :)

That bag is really nice and a lovely colour, 150 quid is still a lot of money though!

That bag is gorgeous.

And thanks for commenting my supernew-blog. I love yours. ^^

I love the Stam bag and the blue is great.

Jamie Lovely said...

No! Don't buy a fake. Fakes are bad :(

Get a MbyMJ instead or save up to splurge. I'm currently going to start saving for a Miu Miu that's an insane $1200, ridiculous, I know and it will take 500 years but will be so worth it. Just no fakes!

That purse is super cute! Very nice pick. Hopefully you can get it :)

I've wanted that bag for a long time
i kinda have a crappy knock of of it but it's still pretty! haha

Shaz said...

i haven't watched brokeback mountain yet..but i will eventually when i feel like it..i don't like watching movies just for the sake of it...

oh and speaking of your marc jacobs bag..these days their are so many knock-offs you can't tell the difference between what is real and what is fake, and even if it is real people will probarbly think its fake.

But i think you like the look of the bag rather than the brand image so i think you should go for it. The colours nice...it's different to black but will go with just as many outfits...

I love the Marc Jacobs bag, and I think that the navy blue is a great choice - neutral enough to wear everyday but not your basic black or brown.

I love the bag ...and I think the color is great. You should for sure stick with the navy blue I think it's gunna be a really popular color this season. I'm looking to get a quilted chanel bag in white; real or replica... who can really tell :P lol.
