Finding the perfect work bag is sometimes tougher than you think. It has to be functional, naturally, and must have enough space to store everything you’ll need throughout the day – like paper files, a book or magazine to read, bottled water, perhaps a change of shoes, etc. And on top of that, it needs to carry all these things while maintaining its chic and not looking bulky or overstuffed. So a structured satchel typically makes a good contender, and this one from Rachel Zoe is that, and is quite stylish too.
The Rachel Zoe ‘Zoe’ Tote is quite the sophisticated satchel, with its snake-embossed leather exterior, belted strap detail and double handles with a removable crossbody strap that make it the perfect day bag that can be carried into night as well. The minimal gold hardware adds a nice touch but keeps it on the more classic, less trendy side, and the style is just a slight bohemian – signature Rachel Zoe style – so you can carry it on the weekends too, paired with a voluminous maxidress and flat sandals.
Measures 13″W x 12″H x 5 1/2″D. 9 1/2″ handle drop and 21″ strap drop
