Lots of ladies love shoes, some ladies collect jewellery but the one thing that I love is handbags. They’re always so useful and every lady needs a stylish leather handbag in her collection. I recently found Yoshi online when searching for a birthday gift for my friend. They have a wonderful collection of leather handbags including satchels, over the shoulder bags and cross body bags but as soon as I saw this Yoshi Starley Leather Hobo Bag I immediately put it on my Birthday / Christmas wishlist.
The Yoshi Starley Leather Hobo Bag is a really stylish accessory and I have been putting this lovely bag through its paces over the last couple of weeks. It was the perfect travelling companion for my train journey down to Southampton with it’s zip top fastening. I have a bit of a phobia about losing my important bits and pieces from my handbag so it’s really reassuring that once the bag is closed nothing is getting out!
Inside the bag there is a zip pocket, a slip pocket and a mobile phone pocket. Perfectly sized spaces for my passport and my travel tickets. The bag also comes with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap but I have been using my Starley without the longer strap opting for the shoulder strap instead.
One of the striking things about the bag is how soft it is. Thanks to the supple, soft Nappa Leather, the bag oozes luxury and is a real statement bag. It’s got to be one of the best bags I’ve had, it’s just the right size for all my stuff but looks effortlessly stylish on the outside.
Every Yoshi bag or purse comes in their very own Yoshi signature dustbag which helps to protect your accessory when not in use. With all leather products, it’s advisable to not get your item wet but having been caught out in the rain in London last weekend with it, I think the bag escaped harm as it was safely nestled under my arm whilst we dashed across the city.
The Yoshi Starley Leather Hobo Bag is priced at £85 and is available in a range of stunning colours including black, fig, mushroom, saffron and tan. The bag shown is in tan.
Yoshi have very kindly given one lucky reader of Life According to MrsShilts the chance to win their very own Starley Leather Hobo bag in time for Christmas. The winner will be able to choose their favourite bag colour (subject to availability) and look super stylish this Christmas. All you need to do is enter the giveaway using the gleam widget below. The giveaway ends on Sunday 13th December at midnight. Good luck!
Huge thanks to Yoshi for gifting me this bag and working with me on the giveaway. All words are my own but I have used a couple of Yoshi photographs to show the bag in it’s best light.
