As often as we try and scour the internet and department store universe to find the best and most unique handbags out there, I really like when I come across a bag that is simple, streamlined and well executed. I know there will be plenty of you who think this bag is far too boring, but sometimes it is nice to have a bag that does its job, looks great and doesn’t send your bank account into a downward spiral.
I am really intrigued by the Dooney & Bourke Kristen Large Leather Hobo. It was the look and feel of the leather that caught my eye. Like I said before, I am the first to say there is nothing over the top about this bag, but it is still lovely. I love the slouchy yet structured shape of the bag. A little bit of topsitiching helps the bag have something extra to notice. Personally, I like this bag in red, but if you aren’t interested in red, give black, brown, ivy, navy or plum a second thought. Buy through Nordstrom for $245.
