Tory Burch 'Marion' Hobo
Compared this to the Tory Amalie - No Comparison!
I bought both this bag and the Tory Burch Amalie Adjustible Hobo because I couldn't decide by looking at each online.
Once they arrived, there was no comparison. The Marion Hobo blows the socks off the Amalie. Its whip stitching is a great touch and the leather also looks much higher quality than the Amalie. This bag is a little bit more expensive than the Amalie, but worth it.
This handbag is great for everyday and could also be dressed up for a night out. Not too flashy and the logo is just enough (not overbearing). I bought the Royal Tan - great for all seasons too!
I bought thisbag in the Tabacco color - looks more like Coral. The leather is plush and soft, the stitching detail is beautiful. Really good spring bag.
I love this bag! I purchased it in the tan color and it goes with everything. You can use it for casual days and nights. The stitching on the strap is beautiful and the bag itself is the perfect size. I would highly recommend this bag.
Good & Bad
I got this in the Tabasco and maybe the color caused the problems that made me return it.
1. Really great color that I'd call coral.
2. Loved the style, especially the integrated, stitched strap.
1. The bag had a strong, unpleasant odor. The odor transferred to the bag's packaging and even to the two tops that were part of my order. Once the tops were separated and aired, the odor dissipated on them, but sadly not with the bag.
2. The leather had a somewhat rubbery look and feel, so much so that I kept examining it to confirm it was really leather.
It's too bad, because it could have been a really great summer hobo.
