Elaine Turner Lainey Doctor Tote | Sophisticated Brown Croc-Embossed Leather Dome Handbag

Posted on: Apr 2

Elaine Turner is one of those designers whose style I can never seem to pin down. Just as I think the label is best at creating casual beach accessories I spot a bag like the Lainey which makes me change my mind.

This doctor tote is all retro sophistication. The crocodile finish may not be the genuine reptile, but it is authentic leather. Lovers of high class luxury may not be satisfied with that, but this cheaper alternative does help us save a bit of cash. The embossing isn't the best crocodile imitation I've seen, but it does give the finish a more opulent appearance than plain leather.

The domed body and shiny turnlock closure make the Lainey look as if its stepped out of a vintage Hollywood movie. The dark colors may not set the fashion world on fire, but they help to maintain the tote's old-world appeal. Personally I'd choose chocolate, as it's always a little less predictable than basic black.

Well placed external pockets complement all the space we get inside. I love the practical leather trimmed pockets, and that fun red signature lining.

Elaine Turner fans may find the $475 price tag a little steep, but I think it's worth it for the high-quality craftsmanship and time-honored style.
