Bally Bohemian Floral Hobo: Snob or Slob?


I have been eyeing Bally bags for a year now and am quite impressed with Brian Atwood‘s efforts thus far.  I am even swayed by this floral hobo… a bit.  It’s not really my style but I see the appeal in the beautifully embroidered flowers and the gorgeous colors for a boho chic girl.  This could have been really tacky but Bally really pulled off the look without offending the senses.  Even the price is fairly reasonable at $1,173 considering the handiwork!

It’s a large suede hobo which is usually best in Fall but the spring flowers will allow you to rock this all year long.

I saw Bally everywhere in London and Paris on the arms of the nonchalantly chic.  I’d love to carry this with a whispery white summer dress. See BALLY – FLORAL EMBROIDERED HOBO SHOULDER BAG here.

What do you think?  Snob or Slob?

  1. Love!!! SNOB

  2. Agree, SNOB, I love it too.

  3. Not for me, but I can see Kate Hudson pulling it off.

  4. Somehow this bag reminds me of the cheap Spanish bags tourists would buy ages ago from Mallorca and other places. Therefore I say-slob !

    The bag is a nice design with all the perfect details – except the flowers. Wouldn’t surprise me to see the same thing at Sheplers with matching cowboy boots.

  9. I think it’s pretty. Snob :-)

  10. Love the bag, the flowers don’t need to be there.

    Slob! The flowers ruin the gorgeous bag. Hoped they would use a different print like dragonflies, lady bugs or even grapes. Not flowers…

    White or cream would be a better color with pastel print.

    This looks like something Isabella Fiore would have done three years ago – the last time Boho chic was happening. Not very original but I still kinda like it.

    I loooove this bag. I had to jump through hoops to get the last avaiable one in Germany. For 40% off. The leather is absolutely perfect. Very soft and beautiful. I looks so much better “in person”.
