As I mentioned last week, finally, oh finally, the retail stores are stocking their shelves with all sorts of amazing new handbags. My must-have bag of the day has to be the Michael Kors Skorpios Pleated Crescent Hobo. I’d like to even say that it could be my bag pick of the week, but seeing as though it is Monday, I don’t want to jump the gun yet.

All I do know is that this bag is a staple, a must-have, a classic.


For being a girl who loves simple, understated elegance it might seem a little odd that I only own one black handbag. To me, black handbags are like little black dresses, you might have one you use more than another, but you can never have enough.

I’ve been in the market for a new black bag for quite some time now and I’ve already put this bag on my list. It was the pleated body that initially caught my attention. But, it was the single braided shoulder strap and goldtone hardware that locked me in. The dimensions are pretty nice too: 16″W X 11″H X 3½”D and 11″ drop. Of course, there is plenty of room, but at the same time, the bag isn’t overwhelming. In fact, even if you are a petite woman, this bag won’t overwhelm you. Buy through Saks for $795.

    This bag made my jaw drop it is simply beautiful. I love the pleated leather with the braided handle and most importantly the light bulb looking hardware. It is so classic with a twist because of the hardware, and I love the fact that it is gold hardware.

    I don’t like hobos so I wouldn’t buy it. However, it is very pretty. I am wondering if it will come in other colors. It’s very unusual. Love Michael Kors, and I just bought my first Uptown Astor. I don’t know what took me so long.

    I am like Mochababe73, just don’t like hobos – not functional and too hard to get in and out of – but, this is a very good looking bag.

    Doesnt this look like a total rip off of the DVF bag though?
