XOXO Hobo Handbag- Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?

Hello Handbag Junkies’ It’s Hit or Miss time!

I want share the only sample I have on hand from the LaCartera handbag collection curated from my Spoonflower textile shop.  This beauty will make you do a double-take and maybe a triple-take! As some of you may know my collection is on hold right now, but not forgotten!  The cover photo of the XOXO Hobo Handbag is an exaggerated take on the color, but I think these photos show the colors and pattern well.

The eco canvas textile design is slightly different on each side, but the center stripe matches up perfectly.  I made the leather adjustable strap longer for those who want a longer length or shorter. There’s nearly 10″ to find your perfect fit. I seem to like a huggable purse that rest directly under my armpit, but I know some of you like a purse with more hang time. And for the petite folks this could cross the body too.

Here’s a look at the back of the handbag, which gives you a totally different look. Now that I’m reviewing the photos, I’m not sure if I should combine the two different sides or make two different purses. 

While you’re here please let me know what you think? I think I could end up with three different styles from this double-take fabric.

I added a red zipper, black lining and a red slip pocket.  I will also add a red leather tassel as a zipper pull.

Adding the leather strap, buckle, rivets and studs are still my favorite things to do that add interest.  I think it’s the style that I love along with the double-take textile here.  I have four XOXO fabric colors to choose from. See more here….

What do you think? Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?

Stay tuned there’s more to come from La Cartera!

  4. This one not a hit with me. What type of affair would it be appropriate or just a fun bag for any fun time. Seems a little teenagerish. Then again, what do I know. If it had New York Yankees baseball logo all over it I’d carry it to the opera.

      Hahaha! Thanks for your comment Carl! Women usually coordinate their outfits everyday for work, school, shopping, etc.. even teenagers carry handbags. So I guess it would be the same as if it had a New York Yankees logo to some of us.😀

    Love the design style. Love hobo. My color is red so it’s all a hit for me. 🙂 Great that the handle is adjustable for longer length and cross body. Loving all the fabric colors and designs.
