Eeeks. This is bag and its name is kind of an oxymoron. And, I’m not talking a good oxymoron like white chocolate either. I want to like this Hype bag, but I would certainly not classify it as a large hobo. Would you? Well the size of the bag itself is large, but I cannot get over the short shoulder strap – it’s so anti large hobo. (more…)
Do you remember a few years back where wristlets were all the rage? Well, maybe it was just during my college years and maybe said rage is still going strong. (Those of you in college, feel free to update me.) At this point, I am not really in the market for a wristlet, but I won’t shy away when I come across one.
Hype handbags, as new as you may be to them, almost always boast some lovely leather. It is great to see that no matter how large or small the bag, the quality of leather isn’t sacrificed. I’ve noticed some lesser-known handbag lines that seem to practically use leather swatches on their small bags in order to save a dime. Note to said designers, never compromise on quality, despite the size of the bag. (more…)
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. (more…)
This bag is unbelievably ideal for fall. In a handbag world full of studs it is absolutely lovely to see a bag without them. I love studs on a bag as much as the next person, but I also need a break. If you are looking for a new handbag for this Fall season but you aren’t ready to drop big bucks, this is a bag that you should consider. (more…)
