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.
