Yes, there can be too much of a good thing. I love a metallic tote as much as the next person, but there is something off about this bag. The problem with this bag is not that it is too much metallic material, but it is the way it has been constructed. The Hype Marella Large Top Zip Tote is a bag with a great concept but still misses the mark a bit. I actually like the snake printed metallic leather with goldtone hardware. In this situation the silver and gold play off of one another nicely, but again, it’s not the color that has turned me off.

The detailing is over the top and frankly, just too much. I would be ok with the dual pockets along the front and back with dual zip pockets along the front. However, the drawstring ties along the top are far too much. Can you say over the top? It took me a little while to pin-point what looked off, but I am sure it is the drawstring ties. In fact, if these ties were ditched I actually might completely change my idea about the bag. Buy through Bluefly for $195.
