Robert Matthew vegan tote looks as elegant as real leather

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.

Robert Matthew tote has a classic work appropriate look

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. It’s a perfect work bag.

The tote can be closed by a zipper as well. The lining shows a posh stripe pattern.

I love the well organized interior of this tote

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.

Perfect for work and business travel

In summary: I <3 this tote. If you are not a shoulder tote person Robert Matthew has also many other timeless styles.
