Oh my gosh, I have just fallen in love with studs all over again. The past few months the handbag world has been infiltrated with studs and fringe. While some bags completely nail the look others fall extremely short. This bag does not fall short, it actually makes me want to buy it right now. I love where the studs are placed on the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Billy Hobo. I am not used to seeing the studs on the shoulder strap, but here, it totally works.


Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Billy Hobo
There are so many aspects about the bag that I am eating up right now. First of all, it is a hobo, and I love hobos. No matter what the bag itself looks like, hobos offer a sense of casual-cool. Now we move onto the croc-embossed leather front panel and pebbled leather back panel. I actually enjoy this differentiation. I think it can work. Whipstitching and vertical leather banding come together on the shoulder strap. I love this. As I mentioned, you don’t normally see studs on the shoulder strap, but I love this look. It is so unique, different and well thought out. Of course, since it is a hobo, there is ample toting space which is always a plus, especially when it comes to day to day usage. Buy through Shopbop for $506.
