Handbag: Hobo International www.hobobags.com
This is my perfect dream handbag – the one I thought didn’t exist: It’s big, but not bulky. It’s classic, but not boring. It only has one strap, but it’s a shoulder bag, and it does up with a click-clack kisslock, which to be honest was the true selling point for me. It cost more than any other bag I’ve ever bought, and while I’m not saying I’d trade my firstborn for it, I’m just going to hedge my bets and say… is the baby cute?
Hobo International is “proud to offer international shipping”, or so the website says, but a closer look, and a quick email adds the disclaimer that “international shipping” doesn’t include Australia. Never fret, though. The range is stocked at Nordstrom www.nordstrom.com who though according to the website “are not able to send orders internationally” actually do. There’s a flat-rate shipping cost of US$50, and you have to ring their customer service (From Australia it is 0011 1 206 303 4700 ). While you’re on there, peruse the rest of the range – they do some downright gorgeous clothing, and I’ll be blogging about them in weeks to come.
