Botkier Venice Satchel

Hobo or Satchel: Which style do you prefer? That ultimately depends on how you like to wear your handbags. Many of you loved the Botkier Venice Hobo, as did the entire PurseBlog team, and now we will bring you information on the fraternal sister of the the bag. The Botkier Venice Satchel’s design contains every aspect of the hobo that we found so edgy and cool: the exposed zips, tassels and smooshy leather. The satchel comes with an optional shoulder strap. I am more of a hobo girl, give me my bag and let me sling it over my shoulder, but I have a soft spot for satchels with shoulder straps. Still throwing it over my shoulder and still loving the look. The colors of Botkier bag I love most and this satchel is available in caramel or sunshine yellow. Now I ask you; hobo or satchel in the Botkier Venice bag? Buy through Nordstrom for $595.

    Ooh, tough decision! Both are gorgeous in caramel and yellow. I absolutely love satchels, and am particular about hobos. I never use the optional shoulder strap on the satchels, though, and prefer to see if a satchel’s handles are long enough to get over the shoulder by themselves. That plan usually works for me if the handle drop is at least 7 inches. This one looks like it could be possible. I love them both, but think I have to vote for the hobo this time.

    I have seen dfferent bags with the same design……where do i even begin if i have to name them…….at this point i might as well go and buy a regular leather bag with the same style for half the price less than this Botkier…….thats my 2 cents…..

    I also found the customer service to be 100% satisfactory. Anna, who runs the show, is very helpful and overall a great person. If you are at a loss on what color or item to get she is full of very good advice.

    I usually prefer a hobo as well, but these satchels are hot!! The shoulder strap is a convenient plus. Although the sunshine yellow is an awesome summer bag, I prefer the caramel. I would wear it everyday!

    Very pretty!

    Botkier definitely has had the zipper thing going on since back in Trigger dayz. I love that the satchels convert so you can wear them in a hobo way too with a shoulder strap. Really original, I like:)
