When it was first announced that Sofia Coppola would be directing The Bling Ring, which comes out tonight in NYC (the rest of the country will have to wait a week), I nearly jumped for joy. It’s been a couple years since the original story of Alexis Neiers and her crew of celeb-robbing buddies came into the public eye, so naturally I went back and read just about every news article and story on the case I could find.
I remember the heyday of the hobo. Back when I first got into handbags, circa 2005, hobos were just as popular as crossbodies are today; they weren’t the flashiest It Bags on the scene, but they were the thing everyone had in their closets for when they needed to, you know, actually carry something functional.

I’ve been obsessed with Olympia Le-Tan book clutches for what seems like forever. Since I first discovered these handmade accessories, it has been love.
