Sam Edelman 'Marais Phoebe' Tote
Perfect for Travel
I purchased this tote as a last minute catch all for carry-on travel. This bag was the perfect size under a seat and held ridiculous amounts of snacks, magazines, and regular purse items. The material and construction is sturdy, looks easy to wipe clean, and has nice sized zippered pockets to secure items. The color is great with just enough detail to keep it quality looking.
Great bag...found it on accident and it was on sale. I have gotten SO many compliments. It is a fun bright color with a great interior and the perfect size.
Not up to standards
There are many things to like about this bag; the size, the handles, but overall I thought the bag looked cheap. I love orange, but this orange was too bright, almost neon, and the brass hardware on the front of the bag was very shiny and looked cheap, as did the tassle. I exchanged it for the Michael Kors (also in orange), and am much happier.
From designing some of today's most fashion forward footwear to the trendiest of totes, Sam Edelman can do no wrong! Originally, I was extremely reluctant to sway from my perpetually predictable Marc Jacobs tendencies and purchase the 'Marais Phoebe' Tote from a designer who has just begun to dabble in the realm of hand bag design. However, my instinct to explore the unknown of Edelman's purse-making abilities could not have been more spot on! This incredibly affordable and more importantly statement-making tote is now the staple of my everyday wardrobe. My new motto is Edelman Everything!
