Hmmmm, something seems off here but I can’t quite decide. There is part of me the actually really likes the Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Carina Leather Hobo and then there is another part of me that doesn’t. The shape of this bag screams classic hobo which I am totally fine with. I can also appreciate the tie detail on the strap but I fear that it is just a bit too much.

Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Carina Leather Hobo
This black glazed leather bag could be a perfect go-to if you are a tie kind of person. I appreciate the fact that Badgley Mischka went big with the tie, but is it too big? I think so. However, without the tie, this bag is certainly nothing special. The goldtone hardware accents look nice on the bag but I am still struggling to find the wow factor. So, help me decide… take it or leave it? Buy through Saks for $398.

    I have had the same feelings when seeing this bag. I think the only way I will be able to truly decide is if I see it in person.

    I have this bag (the larger of the two versions) and I absolutely love it. I see the points made about the bow, but for me, I am tall (5’9″) and this bag works beautifully for me. It stays on the shoulder and everywhere I’ve worn it, compliments abound. The bag is like some dresses, you have to see it on to determine if there is a fabulous factor, and for me, there is.

    I fell in love with it the day I saw it at Saks 5th Ave., and I’ve been very happy with it since. The napa leather is luxe, the bag is big enough to carry everything and sturdy, too. I think it’s simplicity topped with the lush leather bow makes it stunning. I’m very pleased I purchased it.
