B-Low the Belt Leather HoboI’m just on the edge about this one. It just seems unoriginal. Even the name, the B-Low The Belt Leather Hobo, sounds unoriginal. No, scratch that. The bag is unoriginal.

But that doesn’t mean that it has no use. Rather, it’s a bag that I think would get a lot of use, but it’s not the bag you’d grab when you want to look super cute and unique. It’s a bag that you’d fish out of the closet on those days when you feel like you need to carry everything and more- and face it, we all have those days (seriously, sometimes it’s necessary to carry three pens, a planner, a notepad, a water bottle;). So it’s more of a bag you’d need, especially if you tend to carry tons of items all the time, than a bag you’d really, really want, like a special Hermes or a bejeweled clutch.

The only other thing that comes to mind with this hobo is the leather. Because this bag is extremely simple and minimalistic, the leather is the star. And based on the stock photo, the leather looks fairly normal- to stand out, it should at least look thick and substantive, or at least sleek and shiny. Buy through Saks for $398.
