My all-time fave designer Marc Jacobs came out with his own version of the red plaid nylon shopping bag earlier in the year. But did you know he was most probably inspired by the original $2 Chinatown nylon plaid shopping bags?

This Pearl River Nylon Plaid Shopping Bag, $2-$6, is nearly identical to the Marc Jacobs version, except it doesn't come with a brand name. There are various sizes and colors, and considering how cheap it is, you can get one of each. Not only will you look super stylin' when shopping for groceries, you'll also be helping the environment by not relying on disposable plastic bags.
