I stumbled upon the Urbandillo Hobo Bag in Self magazine. I immediately had to visit their website to find out more about this amazing bag. It is so chic and stylish. I received the Black Hobo Bag to review and honestly could not be more pleased. I will be student teaching this Fall, and after school I will be hitting the gym and this bag is perfect to put ALL my stuff in. It is HUGE!!!

What really makes this bag unique is the fact that it shrinks down to the size of a shower puff! This is a bag that is built to handle the needs of an active life. Perfect for the classroom, travel, or the gym, this carry-all goes where you go. The large main compartment features an insulated pocket to store a hot curling iron and several pockets to keep your things organized. Plus it’s CUTE and FASHIONABLE .

Owner and creator of Urbandillo, Veronica James, engineered a design that was able to not just compact down the body of a bag, but could also compact down apparel. Through this discovery and her lifelong enthusiasm for fashion, Veronica realized the potential in her concept of “shrink and go” fashion and how it was the perfect fit for today. Her products are featured in many fitness and fashion magazines. Veronica also started the Buy One. Give Love.  mission which provides a child in need with a warm and snuggly smiley blanket designed by Veronica, herself. Veronica is on a mission to reach as many kids as possible, and through your purchase, she can bring love and warmth to kids in need.  So know that with your purchase, you have given a smiley blanket to a child in need, touched a life, and sent love to a child who needs it.

The Hobo bag which I received comes in both black and purple. I must admit the purple was tempting, but I played it safe and went with the black. Urbandillo also offers different styles and sizes of bags and apparel. The Classic Tote is next on my list
