Have owned the red Lola bag for 3 months. Red color has rubbed off the bottom corners of the bag. Am sending bag to Hobo for repair/replacement. Love the bag's style & general quality but disappointed by lack of color durability.

This bag rocks. Perfect size if you use a smaller bag, and you can find your stuff in it really easy. But the color of the leather is coming off in the corner. I bought the brown and it is no longer available. I shouldn't have to get out the Magic Marker this soon! I've only had it 3 weeks. Will keep it and hope for the best. Hobo needs to check their dyeing process.

This is truly the perfect "little black bag." Well I got mine in black anyway. I am considering also getting this color now. It is just the right size to fit essentials, while still showing off your hour-glass figure, or at least revealing that you do in fact have a waist. Larger bags hide a woman's figure when on her arm, but not this bag. And the leather is very good quality, as is the zipper. The thing I found the most surprisingly delightful about this bag is that the key holder is a hook, so while the keys will stay put unless you turn your bag upside down, they are quick to get out when you're ready to use them. That is a big step up from the clip key holders you have to squeeze to release, or I guess leave toggled to your bag while you try to hold the whole thing up to unlock something. A lot of thought went into making this bag, and it shows in every detail. The bag sits on the shoulder differently depending on how you face it. On mine the bag stays on my shoulder great if I face the stitch side out, but needs to be held up if I face the smooth side out. I don't consider that a flaw, though you might.

Premium quality leather, classic design that will be in style maybe forever and a just right size. But it didn't work for me because the double rolled straps kept sliding off my shoulders. I have narrow shoulders and a size 2 minus there, so that's my issue and not the handbag's. Love Hobo International bags but I've learned I need to stick with the designs that use flat straps. For that reason, I ordered a Hobo bag in another style of similar size from Zappos and I'm looking forward to its arrival in a day or two. Can't beat Zappos service.

I needed a leather purse with fewer zipper closers, attractive enough to use almost anywhere. This purse seems to fill my needs.

Love this bag. Color could be a shade darker of red for me, but otherwise the perfect shape and size. I am 5'10" and it hangs perfectly from my shoulder without being too wide to be comfortable. FYI, the straps are always straight up, unlike one of the pictures that show the straps falling over to the side. It only has one zipper pocket inside and one flat open pocket beneath. It would be nice to have a dedicated cell phone pocket. My first Hobo, but not my last!

I purchased this purse in a different color than black, and a matching wallet. I love both! They are simple in design, classy and the leather is beautiful. They will never go out of style.

This is a great everyday bag! I love the clean, simple lines that Hobo International is known for. It's a good size. It's not too large, which many bags are these days. The style is simple but classic and the craftsmanship is excellent. I want one in every color!

The perfect med size bag - My girlfriend LOVES this bag... it is just so pretty and looks good on her... not too small, not too large... very nice leather... well done design... simple yet different. Overall great bag... only thing she didn’t like is that it didn’t have a little spot holder for her cell phone like her old bag had... she liked that…

Classic Bag - I LOVE this bag. It is so classic. I believe this bag can transcend time because it is a classic. Always looks nice with what ever black shoes I am wearing. My man friend loves the look. I only wish the straps were about 1/2 inch to 1 inch longer so that it would slip on my shoulder without fail. I love Hobo bags. They last forever. Kat Houston Texas

Love it! Love it! This purse rocks! It's deceptively big inside (can carry my keys, wallet, blackberry, compact, a couple lipsticks, iPod and other miscellany) and I'm getting tons of compliments on this. Great price for such a cool bag too. Very classic and I think I'm going to get many years of use out of this bag!

Hobo International Lola--Beautiful bag - This sleek sophisticated bag is fits in almost anywhere. It is a part of Hobo's "Milano" collection and certainly has the elegant lines that would make it right at home in urban Italy. I have the purse, a wallet, checkbook cover and a cell purse in rouge--a wonderful red color that goes with anything. I move the cell purse from purse and it looks right at home. The detail and finish work on this purse are excellent. It is not a large purse but a nice in-between size that can carry essentials in it's slim cross-section. It is larger than the purse I routinely carry so it seems roomy to me. Several of my friends commented that this purse would be much too small for them. Also, one of my friends who is 5'8" with an ample bosom commented that the handles were too short for her and the purse hit at just the wrong place. I like the medium length handles that keep the purse comfortably tucked under my arm. I plan on buying the purse and cell purse in black as well.

Just right! The thing I like best about this purse is that it is just the right size. I can put all of the essentials in it, but it is not too big that I put a lot of junk in my purse. The leather is also very soft! And the purse is very stylish...

Can't say enough good things. This bag has been in Hobo's line for a long time, and it's easy to see why. It's classic, even a little retro, and very, very classy. It's also indestructible -- I have had mine for several years. Unless you try to really fill it up, you won't even be aware that you have a bag on your shoulder since the bag itself is very light and it's not bulky. This is the ideal size for me since because of medical issues I should not attempt to carry a larger (heavier) bag. See the Paulina for a very similar style in a larger size for those of you who need to carry more. As a testament to Hobo's quality, I have a wallet of theirs (the double-zip, which unfortunately is no longer available) that is 12 YEARS OLD and shows almost no signs of wear.

Brands I'd also recommend: HOBO, HOBO, HOBO. Anything HOBO.

LOVE IT! I really love this purse. I am so happy to have found one that doesn't have all the stupid buckles and cheap looking stuff all over it. This one is classic. And the rouge color is FABULOUS! Matches everything and nothing at the same time. :) Can be dressy or casual. So happy with this purchase!

Classic style with great quality! Beautiful leather. Love the bright pink interior which makes it easier to locate items in the bag. Holds my small wallet, TREO cell phone, glasses, and business cards just perfectly. Inside zipper pocket holds compact, lipsticks, and cough drops just fine. I think it will hold up well to daily use.

One black, one red - I purchased two of the Lola purses - one in black and one in red. The purses are beautiful and well-made. The size is perfect. The red color is great. The customer service from Zappos was wonderful.

The perfect purse - I LOVE this bag! It looks small, slim and elegant, but it is extremely roomy -- I can fit everything I need in it -- sunglasses, wallet, palm pilot, cell phone, and even a compact umbrella! The hot pink interior and wide zip-top makes it cinch to find whatever you need a second. The leather is good quality and slightly glossy -- it really works for both casual and dressy attire. I have it in black but will definitely get it in other colors once they become available!

Better than expected - Holds more than it appears. I am a little over 5'1" and oversized bags are overpowering. This bag is perfect. I can swing it over my shoulder or hang over my arm. I use a slim wallet and am able to fit all I need in it. Makes for a great everyday purse! (Not real leather, so not 5 stars.)

Glad I bought it. This purse is exactly what I was looking for: small, simple, yet classy enough to go with everything from office work to casual dress. I can fit everything I need in it, without it becoming a garbage bag. Keys, cell phone/pda combo, full size wallet, comb, and it doesn't look bulgy. It sits upright because the bottom is flat. And it's the color of a ripe bosc pear--lovely!
