Wednesday, Hump Day, Mid-Week Slump, whatever you call today, it can be a little bit of a downer. The weekend still seems rather far off and the day itself tends to drag more than others. Don’t ask me why, it just happens that way. So whether you are dragging or today is flying by, here is a little pick me up. We are thrilled to announce the aspects of the exclusive Purse Blog/Belen Echandia handbag.

    Holy Moses, this was fast! Keep us posted. I’m dying to see this new TPF/BE exclusive.

  • Kara

    Wow I saw that the Hobo far out weighed the messenger style! Excited to see it!!!

  • 19yearslater

    Mid-tone, hmm, will it be a (boring) neutral like tan or something more edgy?

  • Denise

    Can’t wait to see what it looks like!

  • Loquita

    Yahoo!!! I am dying to see what this cervo color will be…I’m hoping for something that gives a pop of color, however “mid-tone” it might be…

  • Kathy

    I’m so excited! Can’t wait to see a picture … I’m betting it will be fabulous!

  • deb

    I have been patiently….well, “almost” patiently waiting for the new hobo! I guess I can wait a bit longer! So exciting!

  • katie

    can’t wait!!

  • Gingeybear

    Language clarificiation alert….

    Does up for grabs mean by lottery or does everyone who wants one get one? If it is being manufactured at the moment is it going to be so limited that not everyone who wants one will be able to get one?

    I beg of you, I will get no (alright, a bit less) sleep until BE reveals a bit more than the tantalizing tidbits above.

    Please let it be a hobo that is like none other. Please let the straps be BE’s signature braided ones!!! Please please please to the max let the color be something divine not gray, tan, or beige, something delicious, especially since its going to be cervo, that can be used almost all year round in climates arrid, humid, torrid, tropical or frigid since TPF is a global community of handbag hoarders.

    Not too much to ask for is it?

    OK, if I am being demanding, may I ask one more thing…. please let it find its way home to me.
