Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote review

Raise your hand if you are constantly on the quest for the perfect tote. My hand is waaaay up! A few weeks ago I attended a dinner in San Francisco hosted by handbag brand Brahmin. The event showcased their new summer collection. After the event, they gifted us with this beautiful Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag. To say I was thrilled, was an understatement.

This tote bag is perfect for both the office and playtime. Keep reading for my full review!

This Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag is a beautiful yet sturdy tote which can be worn for a variety of activities. It is roomy enough to carry a DSLR camera or a laptop, yet compact enough to not feel like a large beach tote. It’s perfect for the summer. I can fit a water-bottle, a wrap for when the fog sneaks in, my camera, and more. This tote is already getting a lot of use by me, it will definitely be getting a ton of use this summer season!

The interior of the Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag has just the right amount of pockets. There is a roomy zipper pocket, a key fob so your keys can easily be found, two slip pockets which are great for lipsticks, a phone, or receipts, and a slim pocket which is just right for your favorite pen.

This isn’t a tote you will have to worry about allowing it’s contents to spill out. The bag offers a chic magnetic closure which is easy to open and close. Love that!

The exterior of the Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag offers a roomy pocket on the backside which is great for a phone or anything you need to reach for quickly; such as a passport, plane tickets, theater tickets, and more. The underneath of the tote features four brass feet which help the bag stand up straight and keep the leather clean if you need to put the bag down. There is also an understated label plate and chic hanging logo; which is understated as well. The stamped croc pattern looks real and gives the bag a fabulous richness. Love!

The exterior of the Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag also offers side snaps which alter the silhouette of the bag, and can make interior larger or smaller depending on how much stuff you need to put inside.

With the side snaps closed, the Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag offers a smaller interior capacity which is great if you aren’t carrying a ton of items. It also slims down the bag, making it really easy to wear over the shoulder. This is also a great way to help keep items inside from slipping out if the bag tips over.

It almost looks like two different tote bag styles doesn’t it! With the snaps left open, the Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote bag offers a more traditional, rectangular design which is wide open and roomy. This is ideal for carrying a laptop, folders, and other items you may need for the office. Love that!

All in all the Brahmin Julian Melbourne tote is a fabulous workhorse tote which can easily be used for the office and other, more enjoyable summer activities. šŸ˜‰ It’s priced under $300 and comes in severalĀ  beautiful colors. It’s amazing how affordable it is considering all of the luxurious features this tote bag offers. Plus, the construction is exceptionally strong and high quality. Love!

Summer 2018 is fast approaching, so we all need a fabulous tote bag! There are so many amazing totes this summer season which not only function as both a work bag and beach bag, but also reflect the current trends in handbags.

For the summer 2018 season, the top trends in handbags include straw, white, and bright colors. Designers are showing a variety of silhouettes including butter soft leather and structured fabrications. If a traditional tote silhouette isn’t your thing, you can look for a large circle, hat box, or geometric shapes. Totes are getting fun for the summer season!

If you work in a conservative environment, and need to stick with a tote bag that is understated and classic, this trapezoid shaped tote can pass for conservative, yet still reflect your fashion-savvy taste without violating dress code. It’s strong construction can withstand a laptop and high heels stuffed inside. Love that! I’m debating which color to get! It’s so cool!

The straw handbag trend is huge right now. If you don’t want your everyday bag to be straw, but would still like to rock the trend, a straw tote might be your thing! It’s a fun bag for the beach, poolside, or anytime you are casual and feeling whimsical.

Would you like to be as fashion-forward as possible? Well then, a two-tone tote is a great option. Rose gold is another great way to be cutting edge this season. There are so many fun options! I found a few fashionable and fabulous totes around the web and assembled them into the shopping widget below, I hope you love them!
