I didn’t really appreciate the art of finding the perfect purse until I had a baby.  Suddenly, I needed all kinds of bags to carry my “stuff” in: diaper bags, small handbags for outings without the baby, larger handbags for short trips that I could just throw a diaper clutch into, wallets, and backpacks.  I have gone through so many bags and purses, it’s crazy!

But you know what?  It’s fun looking for that perfect purse, and picking out the next one is always a pleasure.  Don’t tell my husband that, though – I act frustrated when I feel the need to pick out another purse for his benefit only.  ;-)

Anyway, when I was given the opportunity to review a purse from Rosy Handbags, I happily accepted.  And spent much more than an hour on the site, looking through the purses and trying to decide which one would be the perfect purse for me this time.

I firmly believe that a woman needs to test drive more than one type of purse to see if it’s a good fit.  And since I haven’t owned a hobo handbag before, I decided to check out the selection at Rosy Handbags.  They have a terrific selection of purses in general, and their hobo bags are no exception – there are six pages of hobo bags alone!  I finally settled on a black studded handbag that looked just gorgeous on the site. This must have been a popular choice because it’s no longer in stock – must have been the silver and gold studs on the shoulder strap. ;-)  It caught my eye!

My Thoughts…

Upon receiving my new hobo bag, I found it to be just as gorgeous as it looked on the site!  This is truly a lovely purse, and a purchase I would have been very satisfied with had I bought it online myself.  I’ve been slightly leery about buying purses online in the past, but this experience gave me confidence, and it’s nice to know that there are good places like Rosy Handbags out there.   Everything is just as described, and I’m more than happy with the quality and material of the purse.

I can’t think of anything I don’t like about the site or the purse I received!  My only suggestion on the site would be that they allow customers to search by color as well as the type of purse; however, you can search for a color you want in the search box.

Here I am modeling my studded hobo bag for you:

It’s a little hard to tell the actual size on the website since there is no model, but while shopping online I brought out my trusty measuring tape to give myself an idea of how big the bag actually was.  As you can see, it’s plenty big enough to stuff items for baby and my own personal necessities in, and looks super trendy at the same time.  Seriously, who would suspect I carried diapers in it?

Final Thoughts

I’m loving my experience with Rosy Handbags and will definitely shop there in the future!  They have a GREAT selection, reasonable prices (with many of the handbags under $25.00!), and super nice people running it.
