Maxx New York Babbo | Lime-Colored Leather Hobo

Posted on: Feb 16

Sometimes the term "hobo" gets tossed around a bit too loosely when it comes to handbags, in my opinion. Is it mid-sized and slouchy with a shoulder strap? Then it's probably categorized as a hobo bag.

This Maxx New York Babbo Hobo is an example of a purse that carries the term without having the typical half-moon shape that technically makes a hobo a hobo. This nearly square handbag certainly doesn't resemble a crescent, but it does have the expected slouchiness of most hobo handbags.

What it lacks in true hobo-esque features, however, it makes up for with storage and style. While the interior contains several handy pockets including one specifically designated for your iPod, the exterior has two unexpected pockets that add a lot of practicality to the Babbo. You'll find a zippered one on the front and a slip pocket on the back.

As far as style goes, the pleats on the front are a nice addition to soften the look of the handbag. Buckled accents on the shoulder strap and silver-toned hardware complement the style as well.

Maxx New York is known for mimicking designer looks for less while still using quality materials. I wouldn't exactly call this one an inexpensive bag as it still retails for over $200, but it's a lot easier on the wallet than most items from Marc Jacobs or Chloe. The Babbo also comes in a tote and satchel version.
