After this super-relaxing weekend, I want to carry a big hobo, something that is floppy and soft to the touch- kind of an incarnation of the word ‘effortless’. Luckily, I came across this Cleobella Casey Hobo, which was exactly what I had in mind. Now, as you look at the stock photo, you may think that this is an icky bag. At first, I thought it looked like a swollen alien belly from some bad sci-fi movie. But I had the opportunity to see this bag in person, and it does not look like that at all unless if you regularly carry your bags stuffed full of plastic. And who does that?
This bag, without the customary stuffing, lays flat against the body when empty, and the handles are long enough for the bag to be used as a cross-body if desired. The rope handles aren’t stiff but soft, with enough heft that the bag feels secure on your shoulder, but not too much that it bites into your skin if you are wearing a tank top. It’s a boho handbag in the best way possible- easygoing and the perfect thing to wear with your favorite old jeans. Buy through Shopbop for $418.
