Graduation is fast approaching and many promising new people will soon be entering the workforce. And what does a college grad need to get their career off to an organized start? A nice leather work tote, of course! So if you’re looking for a great new work bag, either for yourself or for someone you love, then check out the Julie K Robin Tote.
This extra large leather tote would be perfect for work. It is simple, but it also has a little bit of spunk to it (something I hear celebs such as Angelina Jolie and Drew Barrymore really like about this designer’s work). I think it would be perfect for a young person that doesn’t want to look too stuffy in the workplace.
I love big bags that I can take with me on a road trip or on an airplane as a carry-on bag. The Jules Weekender Tote in Ocean Exotic by Julie K Handbags is not only perfect for a trip, but it’s beautiful!
My absolute favorite feature of this bag are the subtle snake scales that are all over the leather. Being that the handbag is exotic it really makes the handbag look unique and not to mention stunning. Without the snake scales, this handbag would be like any other big leather tote.
The Weekender Tote is also quite large, so it would be great for a trip or just on those days where you feel like carrying an extra large handbag. The measurements of the handbag are 23″ x 15 1/2″, which make it great for all of your everyday essentials, lap top, shoes, clothes etc. You can fit so much in this bag that you would probably want to carry it everywhere with you. If I owned this bag, I would probably make it a school bag. It would be a stylish but yet spacious way to carry my books, and lap top.
You can purchase the Jules Weekender Tote in Ocean Exotic by Julie K Handbags for $649 at Couture Candy.
The Chat: Ocean Exotic Jules
While browsing around Couture Candy, I came across a bag that looked quite familiar. It was called the Eliza Flat Tote in Black Patent by Julie K, but I knew that Julie K wasn’t the high fashion designer I was thinking of that made this bag. It suddenly clicked in my head that this handbag looked like, none other than, the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Flat Tote. Suddenly the handbag wasn’t as appealing to me anymore.

The Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Tote can cost you anywhere from about $900-$1,400, and to see another designer basically make a look-a-like version of the handbag, for a fraction of the price, is a little appalling. I understand handbag lovers worldwide may think this handbag is amazing, because they can get a handbag that resembles a Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Tote for a more affordable price. When you think about it though, is this case any different than that of Forever 21?
Forever 21 is known for stealing ideas from high fashion designers, and selling a horribly fake version at the store. How is that case any different than what Julie K did? You decide for yourself.
Some details of the Julie K Flat Tote include: fuchsia lining; interior pockets; brass hardware; magnetic closure; and 100% genuine black patent leather. The measurements of the handbag are 16” W x 18” L making the handbag perfect for when you have quite a few stylish essentials to carry.
The Eliza Flat Tote in Black Patent can be purchased at Couture Candy for $473, which is a little expensive for a handbag that resembles a high fashion handbag. I will say though, if you always loved the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Tote this can be your chance to get a handbag that looks like it was inspired by it to the fullest.

Julie K’s bold, modern handbag designs stand apart from other leather bags with their shiny hardware and iconic prints. The Eliza Flat Tote Bag has an exotic python print and is perfect for a girl on the go. This stunning edition to the Fall 2008 collection features a flat, rounded design that sizzles in shiny python print leather. Funky brass zippers on either side of the bag and brass buckles on the straps add an enticing modern edge.
Julie K unites colorful leather with flashy hardware and bold details, creating envious designs for any fashionista. The Cosmo Python Bag is a sassy little cosmetics bag that is perfect for holding your essentials. Whether you’re traveling or having a night out, the Cosmo bag is the ideal companion to slip into your tote bag.
