Rafe-New-York-Mandy-HoboI hate, HATE being called Mandy. It’s not my name, and I’ve never been one for nicknames, but Mandy is THE WORST. For other people, it’s fine. In reference to me, it sounds like nothing less than nails on a chalkboard. It’s not my name!

But it is the name of the Rafe New York Mandy Hobo, and that’s fine. If the designers feel like it’s a Mandy, then that’s up to them. And this, admittedly, is one very attractive Mandy.

I’m something of a sucker for purple, and when you combine it with weaving and pleating and all kinds of fun like that, I’ll sign up even quicker. I worship at the Church of Brights as Neutrals, and purple is my favorite option (followed closely by yellow). This bag’s texture puts it head and shoulders above other hobo options, and I’ll even let the name slide. Buy through Nordstrom for $425.

    Sorry, I don’t like it. Tassels, drawstring, pleating, and HUGE tassels? That’s too much for a small-sized hobo.

    I was surprised you were writing about this bag until I made the jump to the next page. The detail of the weaving and pleating is so much fun I even like the tassels, but I think the leather being woven around the zipper might be too much. I think I would have to see if hanging on an arm to see if its too much.
