The Satchel Is In!! Hobo, You're OUT!

This my dears is a satchel in the photo below. And it is the style bag that you want for spring 2012. Say goodbye to that slouchy hobo bag you've been carrying for who knows how long, and say "Hello satchel!"

A satchel will give your look the freshness you need this spring. What's the difference between a satchel and a hobo style bag you ask?? A hobo bag is very slouchy and relaxed looking. See the photos below for example:
 Now, I am not saying that hobo bag is terrible or will never come back. I am just saying that it is not the trend of the moment. The hobo bag pictured above by Gabor is magnificent! You can find it here.

A satchel has cleaner lines and has more of a boxy shape. It's a classic yet it's modern. The satchel is a trend that you can count on making an appearance time and time again.
Below you will find my favorite SATCHELS for SPRING 2012!:

Now do you see how fresh and modern the satchel is??!! It's time for a change. And if you don't change anything else, as least change your bag. The satchel will completely transform whatever look you have going on into what is happening right now. It's amazing what a bag can do!!
