Vitalio Vera Alicia Hobo | Affordable Neutral Gray Handbag

Vitalio Vera Alicia HoboVitalio Vera plays it uncharacteristically safe with this Alicia hobo.

The affordable fashion house often enjoys experimenting with colors, accents, and shapes, so the more muted style of the Alicia came as a real surprise. Its gray color is very mellow, to the point of being bland. However I suppose you needn't worry about it clashing with your wardrobe. The shape is also very sedate, which for a bag of this size isn't a bad thing. Hardware is kept to a minimum too; there are only a handful of studs around the top and a silver nameplate to distract us.

The Alicia is very cheap at $49.95. For that money the simulated lambskin is probably softer than we'd expect, and the design more practical. A large zippered pocket runs down the center of the interior, dividing the generously sized space into three user-friendly sections. There are also a range of pockets in the side walls, and another on the Alicia's back.

But of course a bag doesn't come so cheaply without a few compromises. The synthetic is prone to flaking, as most cheap ones are, and the lining is very thin. The zips also feel flimsy, so you'll need to handle them with care to make them last.

No one gets change from a fifty and expects a purse to last a lifetime though. This is a throwaway accessory, the kind of thing that can serve you well and be replaced without too much heartache by the time the next season rolls around.
