    Default BCBG Maxazria Hilary Update Tote

    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?

    The BCBG Maxazria Hilary Update Tote features:
    • Constructed of soft, smooth leather
    • Double shoulder straps with a 9" drop
    • Two outside snap pockets
    • One interior zippered pocket
    • Two interior slip pockets
    • Measures 11"W X 15"H X 4"D
    • Retails for $328


    Available at Saks Fifth Avenue where they are currently offering free shipping on all orders over $150. Check it out here: Women's & Men's Designer Apparel, Shoes, Handbags & More | Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Juicy Couture, more - Saks.com

    I think it's okay looking for an everyday bag, I'm just not a huge fan of the BCBG signature flower looking turnlock

    I envision smuggling a midget or small child in that bag... Would make a great trick on MTV jackass to have wee man pop out of that bag inside an upscale botique sporting his diaper...

    I know I have a weird sense of humor... But I still think it'd be funny

    I know... it just looks weird doesn't it? I think it would be so much better looking if it wasn't so tall and skinny. Hehe... that's why I thought wine bottles would fit in there just perfect.
