If we’re being completely honest, we never really need an excuse to buy a new bag, but the ushering in of a new season seems as good as any. After all, who doesn’t need a great purse for fall? The right pick will be eye-catching (preferably with an autumnal hue), able to withstand the elements, and spacious enough for all your daily needs. We just may have found the perfect specimen in Barneys New York’s Ann Hobo Bag — and it happens to be 50 percent off!
As part of a line of accessories from the iconic department store, you can also be sure it’s up to the company’s quality standards. Unlike your average suede hobos — which are prone to wear and tear from sleet, snow, and salt — this one is made with a grained polyurethane that looks just like real leather. The inside is every bit as magnificent, with a soft suede lining that will feel like butter against your fingers as you reach for your essentials. It’s finished with polished gold-tone hardware.
It’s not all about aesthetics, however. Measuring 14.5 inches tall and 12 inches wide, it’s large enough to fit most 13-inch MacBooks, (which typically have a width of about 9 inches), making it just right for your morning commute. This carryall’s convenient magnetic snap closure makes it super easy to access your belongings, ensuring you have all you need right at your fingertips.
Our favorite part is the branded, removable zip pouch that comes included with purchase. You can use it inside the bag as a simple way to organize your credit cards, ID, and cash, or take it out for a quick errand jaunt.
Shipping is free, so you won’t have to worry about any extra hidden costs, and larger sizes are also available for those that have more to tote.
A designer bag for less than $50 shipped? We don’t know about you, but we’re officially SOLD.
