My blue Kristin Hobo came yesterday, and I'm a little bit in love with it. Anyone wanna see?

*Disclaimer - My Internet connection is as slow as molasses on Christmas morning, so if it takes me awhile to get pics posted, that's why!

Here it is under the incandescent light at home. The blue isn't quite what I was looking for, but it is beautiful. It does have a slight greenish cast, but not enough to make it aqua. It kind of reminds me of 1950's blue, but I'm not sure why. And that's not a bad thing!



This image shows darker than the bag actually is.

Thanks!

Pros -

It's a blue bag with silver hardware!
It's a Kristin Hobo, which I love

Cons (or really nitpicks) -

It isn't "Kentucky" blue
The leather needs a bit of a shimmer

Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. Thanks to Euclase for her reveal that brought me around to this color!

Thanks, ladies! It is a beauty.

I finally figured out what this bag reminds me of. In some warped corner of my dark imagination, it's about the same color as a Pan Am flight bag!
