I was in desperate need of a new hobo bag after I spilled coffee inside my Kenneth Cole hobo a few weeks ago. (Long story, don't ask!) As an editor, I'm always needing to tote around my technology (my camera, video camera, and HP Vivienne Tam laptop) but I still want to look fashionable. I've spent a good amount of time recently at night checking out a lot of web sites and I kept coming back to the Rebecca Minkoff True Love Hobo in stone ($495 at Shopbop). The bag also comes in black but there was something about the wonderful neutral color of Stone that appealed to me even more. I knew that this bag would be perfect for summer events and yet would work beautifully in the fall with my gray and black wardrobe as a nice "pop". Hurry though, it seems like this stone color is the new "it" color because the True Love Hobo in Stone is sold out on a lot of web sites. Shopbop is the only place I can find it now.
This bag will definitely steer clear of coffee, I promise!
For those of you who want a smaller bag, Rebecca Minkoff has the Heavy Metal Flame ($495 at Rebecca Minkoff). This bag has been seen on the likes of Whitney Port of The City.
