Sophistication meets utility, finds Temperance. This tote crosses many categories, from shoulder bag, to large handbag, vertical brief. Whatever you call it, its premium good looks, zippered top, pockets, organization, and harness leather handles won't let you down.


When buckled short, the straps work like a handbag; when extended full length, you can put an arm through the handles and use the Temperance as a shoulder bag. A full zip main compartment offers security. The front panel of this tote offers a zippered pocket to stash items you need to grab on the fly. This tote combines several virtues in one design: great looks, sophistication, utility, organization, adaptability.

Best tote bag--ever!

I didn't know that I needed a new tote bag until I saw this one in red Buffalo Plaid. How could I resist?? High quality, perfectly sized straps, and a zippered pocket to stash my go-to items. Love it!
