It seems we’re in the Ralph Lauren mood this week. Yesterday, we covered Taylor Swift and her covered lock bag. Today is about another purse from the label – the Ralph Lauren Collection slouchy suede hobo.
Actress and fashion muse Camilla Belle toted it while arriving at the Staples Center for the Lakers/Nuggets game last Sunday, looking 70s stylish in wide-leg pants, a bright floral scarf, a bright blouse, and, of course, the brown RL hobo across her arm:

With such a beautiful woman flaunting the purse in front of the cameras, it was hard not to notice the bag. Here’s that Ralph Lauren suede hobo for you up close:

What do you think? Too basic? Too simple? Or is it just perfect for your boho-chic outfits this season?
Admittedly, it is quite understated. But certain elements make it unique, like those diagonal zipper pockets, the buckled gold ID tag, and that very distinct bucked handle.

If you like it, you can find it on the Ralph Lauren website. A piece will cost you a high $695 at, for example, Amazon.
Not exactly easy on the pocket, I know, but it does look timeless enough to last longer than the lifespan of a laptop. Now, if you’re not willing to pay that much for a hobo, here’s a cheaper suggestion from Zappos:
