Every bag has its purpose. Some are for fabulous events, some are to compliment the perfect outfit and stay in the background, some are to make a fashion statement when what you’re wearing is simple, and some are just reasonably fashionable ways to cart your stuff from point A to point B.
As best as I can tell, the B-low the Belt Sonia Braided Hobo is a strong contender for the last category. And there’s nothing wrong with that – like I said, it takes all kinds.
This simple hobo has a tendy longer strap and a bit of braided leather trim, but other than that, it’s purely utilitarian. It looks roomy and comfortable to carry, and I can only assume that it would easily hold everything that most women would need for an average day. It doesn’t do much more than that, but most women stock their closets with at least one neutral, unoffensive bag like this for occasions when a bag with more personality wouldn’t be appropriate or for occasions that aren’t really “occasions” at all. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having something simple and useful in your closet. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $495.
