MARC by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Tobo

The MARC by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Tobo, part tote, part hobo, has been around for a few seasons, but I only just took notice of it after a friend of mine scooped it up at Nordstrom. She opted for the caramel brown version, but I happen to prefer the black one more. The 10" drop top handles are very comfortable, and the 16 x 12 x 6.5 size allows you to carry pretty much anything you might need inside without ending up with a bulky bag. The signature turnlocks can be found on the front tab and side pockets, and the interior features a zippered pocket as well as a couple of slit pockets for a cell-phone or PDA. I know I've mentioned how buttery soft the leather on these MARC bags can be, but you'll just have to put up with my gushing one more time. It truly is some of the best leather I've seen on a bag under $500. Period! My friend is in love with her bag, and thanked me over and over for steering her toward MARC by Marc Jacobs bags in the first place. This post would normally be found on Señora Cartera On A Budget, but its design and yummy leather compelled me to share it with my less frugal readers. You deserve a great bag for less too!

MARC by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Tobo available for $498 via Shopbop

    I just saw this bag today in a store and love it. I plan to get the caramel one which seems like a big colour for the fall in purses.
