Style|Robert Matthew: Stylish & Functional Handbags
There are a few things that women adore and must have in our lives, and a great handbag is one of them. We need them to be high quality, functional and very fierce. Recently I was sent one of the new ‘IT” bags by Robert Matthew, which has been seen on the arms of celebs Alicia Silverstone and Julia Stiles.
The inception of Robert Matthew began when two lifelong friends, Robert and Matthew, recognized the passion between a woman and her handbag. Hailing from the state of California, they loved to see the evolving fashion of women, from the casual styles of San Francisco to the fashion forward influences of Los Angeles. This compelled them to create their own line of fashionable and functional handbags, for every woman and every occasion. Now, they have become the designers to watch as the demand continues to build for their handbags.
The handbag I received was the Emily Tote, which was featured on Good Morning America. I’ll admit that I am a silver girl, but I was immediately drawn to the gold hardware and how well it accented the taupe bag. Surprisingly, the beautifully handcrafted bag is animal friendly faux leather with a sophisticated pinstriped fabric lining inside the bag.
My Mother who is a fashionista to her heart was asking me to have this bag before I’d even completely gotten it out of the box. She was impressed with the dual top handles and the ability to add the detachable strap which will transform the bag into a comfy shoulder bag. One final test for me was the space. I carry a lot of things with me daily- from my iPad, my 6+, my apple keyboard, wallet, and so much more. I have to be able to fit all of these things into one bag, and I was please to see that they did and I still had room thanks to the inner pockets and dividers.
