Baggin’ Out: Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Huge Hillier Hobo
Every girl needs a good purse (or 12). Whether you’re going for groceries or running from class to class, they are simply essential for holding all your, uh, essentials. Each week, I’m going to show you a fashionable, yet functional purse for the college crowd and let you know why you absolutely need it! I apologize ahead of time to your bank account.
Now that hot weather has started to creep in, I’m seeing girls busting out
of their shirts their brightly-colored bags. Turquoise, hot pink, neon orange – I’ve seen, and loved, it all. After all, summer is the perfect time to rock a daring purse; all the scenery around is bright and sunny, flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and you’re walking on the boardwalk, sporting a handbag in a spectacular shade!
Marc by Marc Jacobs is a fantastic line for college gals. It’s designed by the legendary Marc Jacobs, but designed to suit our less-than-stuffed wallets. Although still in the high-end range, the dream of owning of a Marc by Marc bag is within reach, unlike a straight up Marc Jacobs (which cost over $1,000 each). Despite releasing new purses each season, Marc by Marc has a few classics that are kept in stock all the time, including the ever-popular Huge Hillier Hobo (woo alliteration!). It’s consistently one of the best-selling of the brand and for good reason!
As you’ve probably guessed, the Huge Hillier is a large-sized bag, measuring 16.25 L x 16.5 H. It features a magnetic top closure, which allows for slight expansion if you’re carrying something particularly large, a back zipper pocket, and two multi-purpose slip pockets for your cell phone or other small accessories. It’s made of 100% leather, that gets softer and more buttery the more it’s worn. There is a regular shoulder strap permanently attached to the bag, but also a detachable shoulder strap that lets you sport it like everyone’s favorite Gossip Girls, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester.
The Huge Hillier Hobo from Marc by Marc Jacobs will be your perfect summer companion for summer festivals, weekend trips to see the BFFs and days out with the girls. It’s functional and perfect for the girl-on-the-go who needs to bring a lot of gear and be prepared for anything! And it comes in a wide array of colors – including this bright, fresh yellow aptly named “Dandelion” – so there’s bound to be one that totally fits you.
If you’re looking for a new summer purse to satisfy the bright-color trend (and also the stylish ladies of Hollywood), look no further than the Classic Q Hillier Hobo from Marc by Marc Jacobs. It’s available at designer stores and, obvi, marcjacobs.com.
