Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q Hillier Hobo
As much as I adore Louis Vuitton, I also believe that everyone needs
a little Marc in their lives. Being a bit edgier than my usual style, the Marc Jacobs or Marc by
Marc Jacobs (MbMJ) handbag lines are a hit or miss with me, (usually a
One of the few hits, was the Dr. Q Groovee Satchel, and to a lesser extent, the Dr. Q Hillier Hobo. Earlier this summer, I absolutely lusted after the Dr. Q Groovee (black or saddle with gold hardware, Mmmm!) But its unavailability in stores, skyrocketing prices on EvilBay, and not so appealing IRL photos convinced me otherwise.
Fast forward a few months, add in a nice cashback promotion through Microsoft's Live.com, and my interested in the MbMJ Dr. Q range is rekindled. While procrastinating the morning of my midterms, a Dr. Q Hillier Hobo in black with gold hardware sucked me in. I rationalized for 15 minutes that I didn't have a black bag besides me huuuge wannabe Via Spiga tote from Target, so I was hooked and clicked to buy. She landed on my doorstep within three days.
While waiting for her, I was weary that the larger size (Dr. Q Hillier Huge Hobo) might be a better choice, but upon arrival, she quickly assured me I made the right choice. I carried her to a sleepover with my pledge brothers (I'm in a co-ed frat), and she was quickly seized and gushed over. You just can't resist that supple pebbled leather and huge gold MbMJ tag…^.^
Of course, I took pictures for the MbMJ connoisseurs @ The Purse Forum, so enjoy.
