So if you saw my outfit selfie on Instagram the other day, you read that I’m currently in the middle of a small obsession with the color gray. I think it is a fun and different neutral color. I think gray pairs well with pretty much all colors! A few months ago, I began searching for a new tote bag. I was really crushing on this brown tote, but I wanted it to still have a purse feel to it. I stopped by Henri Bendel to check out this purple tote, but as per the norm when I am in that store was distracted by all the pretty things including the pretty gray color on this No. 7 Hobo bag. It is a darker gray with a hint of blue undertone to it. I liked the color because it would work with so many different colors in my wardrobe. Gray is also one of those colors that I love to wear as a monochromatic look. With my colorful bags like my green one, I would switch it out when I wore that color. Gray is different. I think wearing different shades of gray is pretty, so I would definitely still be able to carry this bag around when wearing this color. My search was for a tote, and this bag is technically called a hobo purse. The hobo bag style is one of my favorites, and one I am often drawn to in the store. I like the slightly structured but still relaxed look of the style. I also find them to be really comfortable to wear on the shoulder. I feel like this bag is a hybrid with attributes of both a tote and hobo, so it was perfect for me.
If you have a Henri Bendel store in your area, you should check it out. The salespeople are amazing and friendly. They also love sharing little tidbits about the brand. Like Henri Bendel is credited for bringing Coco Chanel to the US. The No 7 collection is kind of a nod to that with some of the design details reminiscent of the famed Chanel bags. A little fun fashion tidbit for this Wednesday!
