Botkier Gladiator Tote
Looking for a classic tote to use for work or school? Well, you just might be in luck! Recently, I came across this interesting looking bag from Botkier. It is called the Gladiator Tote and it is the largest bag in the Gladiator collection (a clutch, a satchel, and a small shoulder bag are also available in this collection).
So I’m looking at this tote and I was thinking. Wouldn’t it be great for carrying files, folders, and maybe even a laptop computer? The bag is just the perfect size and shape to be used as a work tote! Plus, I like the sleek lines and the interesting angles that are created by the seams. I wonder why this collection is named Gladiator. Hmm… could the lines and stud details have reminded Monica Botkier of the armor worn by Roman Gladiators? LOL! I really don’t know, but I do find the styling to be rather interesting.
Well, anyway, the bag also has some other features that would make it perfect for work. The metal corners are probably great for people who constantly bump in to things with their bags. No worries about scuffing up that buttery, soft leather. Also, the slip pocket on the back side of the tote would allow quick and easy access to things like keys or pass cards. You wouldn’t have to worry about important things like those falling to the bottom of an abyss many of us call our handbags.
