Steven by Steve Madden Charm School Drawstring Hobo | Unusual Leather Pouch Purse

Posted on: Jun 24

Steve Madden pushes the fashion envelope with this surprising Charm School envelope. But is it really as charming as its name suggests?

The style is definitely eye-catching, with its pouch shape and gathered body providing a unique alternative to the traditional slouchy crescent. It reminds me of the sort of bag I imagine a goblin or wizard filling with gold coins in a fairy story, although no doubt theirs wouldn't be made of such lush leather! This two-toned leather is also an original choice, although a black-on-black bag is also available for those who prefer a more traditional look.

While the rolled leather drawstring is the Charm School's greatest stylistic feature, it's also its least practical. It’s a fiddly thing, which won't be much fun to use when you want to access your goodies in a hurry. I'd keep your cell phone in the zippered front pocket if you don't want to miss a few calls.

If individual style is what you're after, this $288.95 purse is a relatively affordable way to get it by designer standards. But if you want a bag that's practical rather than pretty, you might want to look elsewhere.
