I love it so much! I definitely want it for my next purchase, and I actually like that it doesn't have tassels. The tassels on mine are completely ruined from toteing it around Paris nonstop for four days... I would be nice not to have to worry about that! I love it in aqua. It's funny because I didn't like gold hardware at first - and I still don't to some extent, on some bags- but on the hobo I love it! What is everyone elses opinion?
