J Crew’s large leather metallic gallery hobo retails for $325 and is on promo for $275. It comes in warm shell, metallic silver & pale gold. I have tried this on and it is SUMPTUOUS. However, it is on the big side. It looked like I was setting off for my paper route. Even with the 25% crewpon from April, this was a pass for me.
At our beloved, loved Target, the Mossimo Black hobo in gold retails for $24.99. I thought…this must be the one she was talking about. Let me try it.
Y por los halcónes (and for the hawks)…J Crew Kelly slim stretch shirt in navy
size 6 madras plaid skirt (08), sad it’s now too big
Talbots patent leather flip flops. The road test of this belt is a good example of why I like loops on some skirts. The belt was flopping around everywhere. Now back to the handbag…
Surely someone is clucking their tongue and saying, uhn, uhn, Gigi…I don’t agree. I still stand by my view that this is an excellent alternative to the J Crew hobo. The J Crew is a classic that should last a long time. As I said, the leather is fabulous and the pale gold is definitely a neutral. However, the Mossimo bag is nice and lightweight. The size is much more manageable — at least for me. The bag is roomy and the price point is right. I realized all of my bags are dark and the lighter ones have a pattern of some sort. This is a nice summer bag that’s leather-like, and not straw, rattan or unstructured cotton. I also think it can move right into Fall. The Mossimo also comes in white, bronze (dark copper) and black.
Oh, and I saw this on the website. I like the marked down price of $12.48. Too bad I don’t like the chain.
Likey? No likey? Chime in….and if you purchased the J Crew Gallery tote, please tell us what you think!
