BCBG Maxazria Hilary Update Tote
Having a looooooong day? How about a looooooong tote to go with that looooooong day? LOL! While browsing over at the Saks Fifth Avenue website, I stumbled across this rather interesting looking tote. It’s called the Hilary Update Tote from BCBG Maxazria. See that thing that looks like a gigantic metal flower? That is actually a very large turnlock!
So what can I say about this unique design from BCBG Maxazria? Well, I like the clean lines and their intriguing idea for a turnlock. I love the mustard yellow color! I have actually been craving a bag in a nice mustard yellow color (I just can’t get with that bright yellow trend). And the pockets! I like bags that have easy-access exterior pockets.
Now that we have all the good stuff out of the way, let’s look at the bad. Why on earth is this bag so freakishly tall? I guess tall isn’t a bad thing in itself, but when you pair it with skinny it just looks weird to me. What happens if I were to drop something small down in the bottom of this bag? I’m not sure if my arm would be long enough to reach it! LOL! And since its so narrow, I can’t see it being very practical in carrying work-related necessities. Hmm… somehow I think this bag would be great for carrying a couple of bottles of wine. Picnic anyone?
