The detail and patterning of this hobo caught my attention right away. I love the simple twisting of the handle. The tiny studs provide edge, but are not so overwhelming that it’s going to be out of style the minute after you purchase! Interesting arched zippered pockets on both front and back sides make a statement that provide a lot of style and function simultaneously. And I simply adore the tiny studding detail on the zipper pulls! It’s simply not overdone but just done right!
The handbag features seaming detail on the front and back along with a large zippered opening and interior zippered pocket. The striking black and cream striped lining is just so classic and whimsical at the same time. A little bit of Alice (in Wonderland) styling! Gold hardware simply pops and provides a more sophisticated color scheme than silver might.
This bag is very roomy too! 16″H x 16″L there’s plenty of room for almost anything! The 12″ strap drop is a comfortable length too! I think you’ll agree this is a wonderful everyday bag with edge AND style!
