Handbag of the Week: ‘Sabina’ leather 70s bag from Urban Outfitters

Sabina_handbag The 70s may forever be dubbed as “the decade that fashion forgot” (although personally we think the 80s has a strong claim to that title too), but it did produce some rather nice leather goods, which was presumably what Urban Outfitters had in mind when they created this ‘Sabina’ shoulderbag.

With two pockets on the front, plus a roomy main compartment, this will fit on your shoulder but still be large enough to carry what you need to. It’s $178, which reflects the fact that it’s all-leather, but isn’t off-puttingly expensive either.

We love tan leather bags, so this was always going to check at least one of our boxes, but if you like it too, you can pick it up at Urban Outfitters.
