Sometimes I like a bag overall, other times I like a bag only for a specific purpose. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Croc-Printed Riz Hobo is one of the latter type.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Croc-Printed Riz Hobo

I normally balk at non-leather bags in this sort of price range, but it’s been raining so much in my area recently that I can’t help but think about solutions for the problem of taking my nice leather bags out when it rains. I don’t want to get water spots on any of them, but I still want something stylish and functional to carry. Which is why I think I’ll be buying something from the croc-stamped Marc by Marc Jacobs line. The material has been altered from last season so that it’s not quite so stiff, but the coated canvas is still incredibly lightweight and, from what I could tell when I saw it, should be completely water-resistant. The bags are priced accordingly for non-leather bags in this line, so picking one up for use on rainy days doesn’t seem like a half-bad idea. Buy through Saks for $278.
