After ogling pictures of the green Proenza Schouler Continental Wallet for the past few days, I went to the mall yesterday morning to try and find a kelly green bag for less than $500 that would satiate my desire for the color without completely breaking the bank. I was brutally rebuffed. The only green bags that called my name were those far outside of my impromptu splurge budget.

I should have known better than to start my search in-person than online, though; I seem to have much better luck with computer-based shopping than any other form of bag-hunting these days. And that’s how I found the Tano Reality Starlet Hobo, which can be yours for the low, low price of $199. And yes, it’s made out of real leather.

I’ve never owned a Tano bag and it’s been a while since I’ve heard the name; it seems as though the brand had a surge in popularity either last year or the year before and then consumers backed off a bit, for whatever reason. Perhaps the line’s popularity reached a saturation point or the designs left something to be desired for a couple of collections, but there’s certainly no reason that the line shouldn’t move through stores briskly with large leather bags selling at a price point in the low three digits. This isn’t a perfect bag, but for the money, you won’t beat it. Buy through Must Have Bag for $199 in seven different colors.

    Love the green obsession. Been happily carrying my Light Olive GSH Balenciaga City for several weeks now. It’s juicy and rich and beautiful!

  • MizzJ

    Wow that is super cheap!! I’ve never heard of this brand before actually. I like the shape and the color of this bag, but the strap looks a little off to me and I don’t like how those little strap bits stick out.

  • Cathy Fitz

    Great bag, even better price!

  • sunflower

    That is so funny that you talk about “green obsession”. Every Spring I get an urge for a green bag too!

  • guest

    Can’t bring myself to like the plasticky looking leather that Tano uses.

  • 19yearslater

    Whoa, that price is crazy! I always like to add a little green to my style in spring and summer as well, most of my green is in the form of shorts, floaty tops, sundresses, etc.

  • lulugurl2006

    I love the colour, but I hope the leather is nice for the price!

  • Mochababe73

    That is a beautiful color. I really like the brown strap.

    Love Tano. I can afford the brand for one thing, and many of the styles work ideally for my life/work style. I love the lux leather (“plasticky” for some possibly?).

    My new spring Tano is gorgeous in “natural” and under $300.00 from
