Is anyone familiar with Marie Turnor? I had never heard of this designer before. However, when my fellow blogger Marissa wrote about a piece from this designer (The Lunch Bag), I instantly became intrigued. So I decided to do a little investigating of my own. Marie Turnor is the brainchild of Beth Goodman, a lingerie designer who began her career in New York. Later she moved to LA to became a stylist. Then in 2009, she decided to launch an accessories line based in California. The line takes inspiration from mundane objects like envelopes and paper bags. It was these simple designs that caught my eye!
Take a look at the Marie Turnor Detour Hobo. From what I have seen so far, this style is definitely my favorite! I love the simple, slouchy shape and extra wide shoulder strap. It also features a drawstring closure inside. The bag resembles a sling hobo, making it perfect for over the shoulder or cross body wear. This would make a great cornerstone to any handbag collection. It’s casual, yet chic. Perfect for every day use, it could easily become your “go to” bag. Plus it’s made in the USA! You can’t go wrong with that!
