So, you might be looking at this bag and thinking to yourself, “um, Shannon, you guys already talked about this bag”. Yes, this is true, Amanda covered the Botkier James Hobo a couple weeks back. But see, the thing is, this color jumped out at me so much that I had to write about it again.

Amanda mentioned how she was completely loving this new bag and all of its features. I agreed with her then and I agree with her now. While you may or may not agree with me, I actually believe this washed denim look is as fabulous if not MORE fabulous than the black option Amanda covered earlier.

Sure, if you are in desperate need of a new black bag, that option would be best. However, if you are looking to switch things up a bit, I would highly consider this one. At first, I thought this Botkier James Leather Hobo was made out of denim. Yeah, I know, the name itself says leather, but just looking at it, you might have thought the same.

I love how soft and supple the leather looks. I have half the mind to head out to Saks this afternoon, find this bag and touch it myself! The single handle strap with a 7″ drop looks like it would fit and feel fabulously. Yet, if you want something a bit longer, use the detachable shoulder strap with its 20″ drop. Of course you can see the two outside zipper pockets with their tassel pulls. Thankfully, the pulls aren’t weighed down with too much material – just enough to get the point across. Buy through Saks for $595.

    So cute in the denim! Perfect for spring. Would pair with trendy patchwork denim jeans to really amp the look! Would also be super hot with black… And white… And even the neutral trend! I guess I may be headed to Saks myself?!

    I have never liked denim handbags because they always looked cheap. The leather is beautiful, and the color is just right. I can definitely see myself wearing it.

      I agree. Denim bags to me anyway have always seemed so jr. high. This one however, is done very beautifully.

    Wow, is all I can say over and over again. I would love to have this bag over my arm all Spring long.

    I have this bag in black because I desperately needed a new black bag and I am in love with it. Such luxe, well constructed bag. It’s amazing!
