Laurel & Sunset Dunsmouth Hobo | Smelly & Confused Pleated Purse

Posted on: May 21

Laurel & Sunset Dunsmouth HoboLaurel & Sunset always delivers affordable accessories, but often its aesthetic leaves a bit to be desired. Such is the case with the Dunsmouth Hobo, which sees some promising elements clumsily sandwiched together.

I can't help thinking of the Bride of Frankenstein when I look at this hobo. The gathered pleated section near the base is interesting, but the delicate studs which cover it take the accent over the top. I don't mind the decorative hardware underneath the straps, but the double rings seem like a bit too much metal. The ties at the sides only add to the clutter.

The Dunsmouth is pretty practical though, with plenty of space and pockets too. The slouchy design makes it a little difficult to get items in and out of the bag, but at least the long straps make carrying simple.

The price is probably the Dunsmouth's biggest drawcard. $36.95 doesn't buy us a lot in the modern world, but it will buy this bag. If you're on a tight budget, that may be enough to tempt you. Just be prepared to accept a few compromises if you do. The Dunsmouth is made from a synthetic so cheap that many customers report a strong fishy odour. The scent is so overpowering that even attempts to air it out have been futile.

Personally I'd rather save some extra cash and indulge in a bag that doesn't smell like a working wharf, wouldn't you?
