The Hobo Lauren Clutch

Is this thing on? I feel like I have been MIA recently. Sorry girls, just been busy being superwoman  in my daily life. 
I am sure you ALL know about this fabulous little gem I am about to show you, but I was just thinking about how baller it was the other day, and how I am in the market for a new one. There was a period of about a year when the girls and I got each other Hobo Lauren clutches for our b-days. Like that was the standard gift of 2009, HA!
If you have not purchased one of these babies, allow me to introduce. 
LouLou readers, meet the Lauren clutch. 
She’s sassy
she’s beautiful. 
 she’s multifunctional! 
She can be your everyday wallet,  and then two seconds later she can be your best friend clutch and accompany you to the bar. 
Basically,  she rocks. 
Here is my little Lauren clutch, in the color Yam I do believe. 
Behold the inside. Easy access to ID, and to cards of your choice!
Also inside, this handy little zipper pocket. I usually put receipts in there, but if I am using this as a clutch, it is the perfect spot for  my phone and lip gloss πŸ˜‰
There are two outside snap pockets. One has a space for all of your cards…
I don’t have credit cards… but I have a TON of store rewards cards and many many unused gift cards. WOOPS. 
 I also keep my check book in this side, not that I ever really write checks, but sometimes you need ’em… like to pay your friend Emily back for putting $500 on her card for beach booze and groceries πŸ˜‰ haha
The other side has a zipper for your change… and space for anything else you might want to carry. 
Yes that is a baby tabasco bottle. You just neeeever know when you are gonna need hot sauce. 
So as you can see, my dear little friend has gotten a little ‘loved’ if you will. I think I need a new one. I found this cute metallic one on SALE
But then I also found this little beauty, not on sale. 
I have since decided I would get both of them filthy, so I think for my next one, I shall go with the robin egg blue, or the hot pink. Duh. 
PS: you can usually find these babies on sale on like amazon, ebay etc. You just gotta look πŸ˜‰ 
Happy Friday lovelies! I will be curled up on the couch tonight with the bestie and my pug child watching a Sex and the City marathon.

    I pretty much love you for posting this. A few years ago a friend had a clutch just like this and I have always wanted one like it…..I am going to find one today now. πŸ™‚

  2. Sasha says:

    Yay for Hobo! My babysitter turned me on to them- I am sporting an awesome Hobo wallet as we speak. Don't know the name, I love love love it!

  3. Sasha says:

    Found it- I have a Nancy in Black. It turns into a wrislet!

  4. Lauren says:

    I absolutely LOVE my Lauren Hobo Wallet. I have the pretty pink one shown in your picture and it's my favorite! Goes everywhere with me! πŸ™‚

    I think they should give you a free one for such a nice review!

  5. Lacey says:

    Love, love my Hobo, I will never have any other kind of wallet! When you're looking for a new one I would stick to the leather, rather than the patent leather. I have that turquoise one and the leather has ripped in a couple places πŸ™

  6. Emily says:

    Looks adorable and pretty handy. I may have to consider one…..have a great weekend.

  7. I absolutely LOVE my Hobo clutch! I recently got ink on it… know any ways to get that off?

  8. Marjorie says:

    Thanks for suggesting. I really, really need a wallet (I don't have one and it's getting kinda ridiculous). I'm scared to look up the price of these ones ;0

  9. Marjorie says:

    To the commenter above, try rubbing alcohol (the kind you put on cuts) to get rid of the ink stain.

  10. Raquel says:

    Oooo i love them!!

  11. I love the Lauren Hobo clutch! My best girlfriend has one in a to-die-for color … it's a pearlized ivory — it's way too pretty.

  12. Lindsey says:

    I got mine in red on sale at Dillards. Check Dillard's out.

  13. I don't think I've ever realized how much room a clutch like that has! I need to look a little closer at those things!

  14. I've carried the metallic one for YEARS! I love it as well, but there are pieces flaking off and it too looks well loved! Not to mention the stained inside from lip gloss mishaps, wine spills, and pen ink. But it's the best wallet I've ever had!

    (Love you're blog, lady. The hair "how-to's are the best!)

  15. Meredith says:

    I LOVE IT AND MUST BUY ONE!! Hot Pink 4sure, since pink is my favorite color too. Have a great weekend!!

  16. Holly says:

    I'm usually a handbag girl but you may have swayed me to try something new. I love the white one!

  17. Ashley says:

    Thanks for this post…I just ordered one lol

    you should be a sales woman, cus u sold me on this wallet. I HAD to have it..haha


  18. Rachel says:

    I love these!
    Also, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that carried baby Tabasco around in my purse…!!

  19. I never "go out" – GASP – So I don't own a single clutch. But that IS gorgeous. Maybe I need to reconsider….

  20. ty says:

    OMG. I have four of these, and I don't know what I did before them.

  21. shay says:

    i have a Hobo Millie and i absolutely love it. Mine has two openings at the top and then a zippered pouch underneath which is where i keep my phone and a gloss (and sometimes i squeeze my digi cam in there too)…

    I got mine as a Christmas gift and it is one of the best gifts i've ever gotten…

    Might have to try the Lauren for my next Hobo!

  22. maNda says:

    i have the black one and i'm pretty sure i couldn’t live without it. a pen fits perfectly in the center! [between the ID and debit card holder:)]

  23. Best invention ever. I remember you blogging about this awhile back and so when my old wallet died I snatched this one up. Pretty sure I will never get anything else!

  24. CALLIE says:

    I'm thinking I should be in the market for a new one too! I have had mine for years (turquoise) and she is still going strong, but she has to be worn out ha! The colors and cute patterns have come such a long way since I got mine. I foresee a shopping trip in the near future!

  25. Jamie says:

    I LOVE my Hobo πŸ™‚

  26. Lyndse says:

    I love these clutches! I am a clutch person, I can not believe I do not own a hobo…thank you so much for sharing.

    I have already started googling the cheapest ones : )

  27. Mighty Burns says:

    i bought a few wallets and they failed me. tore, let change out all over my purse, or shed their gliter everywhere. I am fidning that I like to have a smaller bag more often then my larger "Mary Poppins" ones.. this looks PERFECT! thank you! S and the C? Yes please, sounds fun!

  28. Manda says:

    I love my Lauren Hobo clutch! It's my go-to wallet/purse : ) I love your captions–too funny!

  29. Nora says:

    I am in LOVE with these- glad you shared, I have never seen these before- where can you get them/just online? I would love the Hot pink one or the white flowery one:) IN LOVE! thanks

  30. Amanda says:

    I love your posts! They brighten my day πŸ™‚

  31. MJ says:

    Those are so cute!! Perfect to pull out for the bars!

  32. Je$$ says:

    i need one of these. i have tons of other clutches but none of them even compare to the amount of space this one has. and having an iphone with a huge case takes up a lot of space…

  33. Emily says:

    WHY did you have to post this?! I feel like I need one now. Seriously, that metallic one is super cute and my style!

  34. Kelly says:

    This clutch looks amazing! I feel a shopping trip is in my future . . .

  35. Wow! I think I just fell in love! I must find that clutch (as if I don't already have enough purses, etc!) Sex and the City is my all-time favorite show – enjoy the marathon!!!

  36. I just started following you, and I love your blog! How do you get the "handwriting" notes on your pictures that you post?

  37. Ashley says:

    Be still my heart!! I've been looking for a new wallet and I am now going to find that gorgeous blue one!!! Yikes!

  38. Cheryl E. says:

  40. Julie says:

  41. Kristen says:

    I've never seen these, but they have so much room! I think I'll definitely need to play around with one. I always have so much to stuff in my clutch when I go out, but I think this clutch may actually fit everything?

    Thanks for the post!

    xO Kristen

  42. Sal says:

  44. Caitlin C. says:

    I have a light pink hobo clutch that I absolutely love! You can throw it in a purse or wear it by itself, with such easy access to all of your cards, ID, etc. Love it! Great post. πŸ™‚

  45. Leanna Vera says:

    Now I really want one of these. It's too cute!

  46. Sunny & Star says:

    I am always drawn to cute little clutches. But never end up carrying them because I always have too much stuff I am trying to pack around with me.

    P.S. We are having a giveaway over at our blog. I hope you can come over to my blog and enter.
