the sak coral hobo

tassel detail

time to return to a thrifting success. i was in my favorite st. vincent de paul when i saw this coral hobo by the sak from the checkout line. i almost didn’t grab it, because it looked a little small. boy, was i wrong. this bag holds a lot! my stuff, water bottle, coffee mug and a magazine – heaven.

the handle is whipstitched and lined, with a cool rope detail and hanging beads. the color looks great with all neutrals. i’m so glad i didn’t pass it up at $6.99!

so maybe a week later i find this purse in a different color, same purse though, at tj maxx for $59.99. score!

i took this photo at work, because i want you to know that i’m not just choosing my favorite bags, i am actually carrying that bag for the whole day. i usually switch in the morning, after staring at my closet trying to figure out what i’m going to wear and what purse goes with that, or choosing the purse and then figuring out what to wear with it. regardless, there’s a lot of staring.
