Cleobella is the answer for boho recessionistas looking for a trendy-but-broken-in bag, one that’s of a certain quality. Their prices are generally low, as far as designer bags are concerned, and the leather is always what I like to call “Williamsburg-worn.” That is, the leather has that worn look favored by alternative hipsters one often runs into in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

However, with its studs and fringe, this Cleobella Zula Bag veers much more towards the trendy than the alternative. But is that such a bad thing? It’s definitely difficult to consolidate two trends at once, especially ones so different, like these two. This bag gets it right, though.


The front of the bag is pretty much equally divided between studs and fringe; that’s democracy if I ever knew it. And because the bag isn’t so big, the trends aren’t so huge that they’re taking over. So wear your trends with pride! After all, both studs and fringe are worthy of your attention. Buy through Shopbop for $310.
