thursday purseday + my new gig

it’s only fitting that i announce my next career move today and you’ll soon see why : )

after navigating the long and windy graduate school road and receiving my mba last month, i wanted nothing more than to pursue a profession that fits my passion. i am thrilled to tell you that in just a few short weeks, i will start an exciting opportunity with my longtime favorite brand, hobo international. i will be managing sales to independent retailers (ie super fabulous boutiques) in the mid-atlantic region and i. can. not. WAIT!

for starters, i have had an intense love affair with these handbags for over ten years now. they are the real deal – high quality materials, awesome hardware, gorgeous linings and bunches of pockets to keep you organized. i am over the moon for the little family of seven that i’ve got living in my closet to grow and grow beyond all ridiculousness and reason!

as if i could become any more of a bag lady? lord help us.

in all seriousness, i am chomping at the bit to begin representing hobo from new jersey to dc. i am looking forward to hitting the road and meeting all of the incredible boutique owners who share the hobo love in their darling shops and i will most certainly be sharing my adventures right here on the glossarie.

in honor of thursday purseday, here are a few of my most favorite hobo bags:

the incredibly versatile eydie in citrus, $288

the super stunning done deal in taupe, $388

the due course in ocean with zipper detailing to die for, $268

cool, convertible zara in caramel, $118

it’s almost too much pretty to handle! i’ll keep you posted as things unfold, but fear not, the glossarie is not going anywhere. however, if you’re hankering for a new obsession, take a peek at hobo on facebook and twitter. you might just catch my fever!
