Rafe-New-York-Mandy-HoboI hate, HATE being called Mandy. It’s not my name, and I’ve never been one for nicknames, but Mandy is THE WORST. For other people, it’s fine. In reference to me, it sounds like nothing less than nails on a chalkboard. It’s not my name!

But it is the name of the Rafe New York Mandy Hobo, and that’s fine. If the designers feel like it’s a Mandy, then that’s up to them. And this, admittedly, is one very attractive Mandy.


I’m something of a sucker for purple, and when you combine it with weaving and pleating and all kinds of fun like that, I’ll sign up even quicker. I worship at the Church of Brights as Neutrals, and purple is my favorite option (followed closely by yellow). This bag’s texture puts it head and shoulders above other hobo options, and I’ll even let the name slide. Buy through Nordstrom for $425.
