An[atom]y of the Hobo Bag

Hobo Bags

I admit, I absolutely love to walk the subtle path were fashion meets convenience! And as of late,  The Hobo Bag is MY #1 TRAVEL BUDDY . So as a guest writer, fashionista, and Urban Graduette, I wanted to share the things that I think make THE perferct Hobo bag.

The first thing I think about is the “Slouch Factor”. I need it to be very duffle-like, with slack in the right places — like the ends. You can usually tell this when you put it on your shoulder. If the slack is still there, that’s the one.

The next thing I look for is the “Openness” of the bag. I like to have enough space to fit a pair of shoes inside, along with my iPhone, pocketbook, my makeup….and the list of essentials goes on. Basically, it should be roomy, but not overly spacious.

The final thing, and my personal favorite, is the “Hidden Treat”. I love bags that have neat details — like special key chains, textures, light ornate accents. THIS adds the spice to the bag!

The smARTORIALIST: Billie Holiday

BLUE is the new hue this upcoming Fall season.  If the end of the summer has got you down don’t feel bad, now you can wear your feelings not only on your sleeve but all over.  Shades of blue are popping up all over the runway this season.  

Oh, and ladies…I saved the best for last.  Check these out and imagine them on your feet.  Better yet imagine the response you would get from others just by having these on your feet!

These shoes are very artistic and show that some designers at CHLOE are still in it for the love of the art, and not just riding off of a name.  These “be-yutes” are from the new CHLOE 2008 Fall line.  Chloe may be on to something and so should all you young female Urban Graduates who pride yourselves on your shoe game.  Don’t say the Smartorialist didn’t warn ya.
