    Default Who makes the better hobo: MBMJ or RM?

    Here are the contenders! MBMJ Faridah vs. Rebecca Minkoff Nikki. Both are relatively the same price and both are extremely popular hobo bags. Both feature soft, supple leather ad high quality hardware. Both have very cute interior linings and both come out in an array of colors each season.

    Which do you prefer and why? Thank you in advance!

    I like how the nikki looks better. The mbmj reminds me alot of a coach bag that I used to have. I do love pockets too.... but since you only asked about those 2, I pick RM!

    They're both cute, but I'm going to go with the Nikki. I just like the look of the Nikki better, plus I've never seen the MBMJ in person and sometimes it's hard to judge a bag just by pictures.

    I love them both, although I would prefer the Faridah. When I had a Nikki, I remember the hardware on the sides being noisy if it wasn't stuffed.

    Did you have a nikki with signature hardware? I've noticed that one is noisier if your bag isn't full. Mine usually is, so I don't have to worry about that too much.

    Yep, mine had the old HW in silver.


    Also, my MbyMJ teri's leather was soooooooo nice!! It feels a lot more durable than the Nikki's leather did. But, both leathers were really nice...I just prefer MbyMJ.

    Yes, your cobalt had super soft leather that seemed a bit delicate. My Light Gray Nikki has FAB leather that is super durable, like the Persimmon MAB you had!

    I don't have a Nikki, but I do have a Black MBMJ Faridah, and I just love it.
    It has the most buttery leather and I just adore the silver hardware. It is
    hands down my favourite everyday bag.

    I don't own either of these bags, but the Nikki looks absolutely gorgeous. It is a hobo, but does not look too casual either. Looks like it can be used for formal occasions as well.

    The MBMJ also looks great, but my vote is for the Nikki, based on looks alone

    I love them both, but I like the Nikki just a little bit more so that one got my vote! I agree with ZG, I like the sexy-slouch!

    I love the RM Nikki, from peoples reviews on here, seeing them in person, and the gorgeous pix, that gets my vote.
