Sarah Jessica Parker: A Mini Hobo for a Clutch?

Oct 14 2010 • by Roselle

This is another SJP (Sarah Jessica Parker) post. I’m sorry but I can’t help  but write about her. I like her style. Today however, is a little different.

The Sex and the City star attended the New York City Ballet Fall Gala last week and although her Halston Heritage nude glittering gown was a hit, I was a little confused as to why she opted to carry a dark mini hobo bag as her purse of choice for the night.

She totally had me scratching my head right there…I mean, why didn’t she opt for a clutch instead?

Doesn’t it bother you? Because I find the mix a little off.

The purse is from Halston Heritage.  Here’s a product shot from Shopbop so you can get a better look:

Granted that the purse is made of some dressy metal mesh material, but don’t you think the hobo shape is a little too casual for the gown? If pushing the brand  (Halston) was the objective, she could have just used this piece instead:

Oh well, I guess she wanted something different. But what do you think? Was carrying that hobo purse fashionable for the Fall Gala?
