I haven’t bought a new handbag in three years–mine is classic enough to last, and with age, the leather has gotten even better. But these days, it’s looking a little beat up, so I set out to hunt down a new one that’s under $150, real leather, with a thick strap, roominess and cool details. Check it out:
This State & Lake tassel hobo bag ($138, from $198) looks really high end: check out the slouchiness and the effortlessly cool tassels, plus the sturdy hardware rings on the side. I can see myself wearing it to work, on the weekends, and out at night, too. Confession: I’m a sucker for cool linings on both coats and bags, so this silk ikat print really sealed the deal.
