So, the beautiful hobo bag I’ve been waiting for is finally here! I jumped in happiness when I received it in the mail! To be honest, I have never been a big fan of big bags because I can rarely find anything to put in them. But this one I love. I can wear it on a casual date, to go shopping, or even to go to school- it fits all my notebooks perfectly well, and there’s still some space left (kind of like Mary Poppins’ bag! Hehe)!
The Sadie Hobo, by Ellington, is part of the new signature material collection bags.
“Soft, slouchy and chic are a few words that describe this perennial Ellington favorite. New for 2011 in our signature Glazed Italian Lamb Leather, a lightweight leather that drapes beautifully and has just a hint of shine.” – Ellington Handbags
It comes in three different colors: Glazed Gunmetal, Glazed Taupe, and Glazed Red. Since my wardrobe consists mainly on neutral colors, I decided to go for the Glazed Taupe. The color is slightly darker than the one in the picture, but I still like it.
What I love the most about the Sadie Hobo is that the main compartment has zipper closure. I know it sounds a bit silly, but most of the hobo bags I’ve seen don’t have zippers—they use magnets instead, and when you put a lot of stuff in your bag, you cannot close it because the magnets are rarely strong enough to hold together. Plus, the Sadie Hobo’s interior includes two large slip pockets, a leather-framed zipper pocket, and a key clip so that you can organize and easily find your things.
