New Luxury Find: Angela Roi Cher Tote Review
Is anyone else's most used bag also their work bag? Mine is (are)! I typically rotate between two handbags, one of which is the Tory Burch 'Perry' tote and the other is similar one from Zara. I love the ease and capacity that these totes have: perfect for tossing in what you need and then being on your way. However, I've been wanting something with a little more structure and more polish.
Enter the Angela Roi Cher tote in black. The first thing that caught my eye was the classic style and shape. It has elegantly sloped lines that form a rectangular shape but isn't overly boxy. The tote's dimensions measure 13.5" x 10" x 7" and comes with a matching leather strap that drops 19.5". It not only looks professional but is is very functional.

The Cher tote is made of a pebbled vegan leather called 'EPUL' (Exquisite Polyurethane Leather). It is soft to the touch, flexible, and durable. The sides of the bag are neatly tucked into the center, aligning with an inner center zipper pocket. The bag's edges are smooth and finely finished. Shiny gold hardware strap clips and feet compliment the medium black color. It looks luxe! And reminiscent of a well-known designer double bag. :)
WHAT THE CHER TOTE CAN HOLD
Like many women, I have a default number of items that I carry with me on a daily basis. The most important being a laptop. Luckily, it is the perfect size to hold my Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15" (which is comparable to the size of a Macbook Pro 15" laptop). My computer slides in and out without any hassle and can likely accommodate a thin laptop sleeve too. The bag is divided into two generously sized sections. The center pocket has a zipper and is an ideal place for small knick knacks that you don't want to dig for. There is also a magnetic closure at the top that keeps the bag together for some privacy/security.
USABILITY IN A CONCRETE JUNGLE
I've been using the Cher tote for about 2 months now and I love it! If you're a Bostonian that takes the T (like me!) or use public transportation, then this bag is a great option. It will stand up to being jostled, smushed, and bumped into during rush hour. A quick wipe with damp towel will take care of any spills. This handbag was truly created with life in mind!
One other amazing thing about Angela Roi is that the company donates a percentage of every handbag sold to the ASPCA. I love companies that support charitable organizations, and this one in particular is great for animal lovers. :)
The Angela Roi Cher Tote retails for $240.
