My American readers may have seen this tote on Good Morning America. This Robert Matthew Emily shoulder tote is handcrafted from faux leather that looks so real leather. Thus, it is perfect for fashionistas looking for vegan totes, but want the expensive, sophisticated stylish look of leather.
The Robert Matthew Emily shoulder tote has the right amount for gold hardware of a timeless, classic look. You can carry the bag over your shoulder on the 8 inch (20 cm) double-handles as well as by attaching the adjustable shoulder strap. You can vary the strap’s length from 30 to 55 inch (75cm to 1.40m). This means it works for petite women like me and tall women as well.
The interior offers departments for a cell phone, glasses, and change. Those of you in regions with nasty winter climate will love the two large compartments. A pair of pumps for the office fits well in one of them, even with a shoe bag! The compartments are separated by a divider that is a zipped pocket itself. The tote’s dimensions are 16″ width x 13″ height x 5.5″ depth (41 cm x 33 cm x 14 cm).
On the body-side outside, the Robert Matthew Emily shoulder tote has a zipper pocket as well. It is great to hold metro, bus, or airline tickets, keys or change for the latte or parking-meter. These features make the tote perfect for work and travel.
In summary: I ❤ this tote. If you are not a shoulder tote person Robert Matthew has also many other timeless styles. Their page shows photos of the bag’s interior so you can make yourself a picture of whether or not a style you like will fit your needs and/or expectations with respect of its inside arrangement.
Here are examples of how the tote looks when carried in different ways.
