Sacs of Life FAUXSOL Mid-Western Retreat Tote: All the look of leather without the guilt

When I first saw the newest tote from Sacs of Life's FAUXSOL Line, I really could not believe that it wasn't real leather.  I knew I had to test it out in person and give all my followers the latest scoop on a new syn-leather purse.
The Mid-Western Retreat Tote (as seen above in Camel) is the perfect size for all your purse items and still room for some baby gear.  It is a medium-sized tote that is much lighter than you would expect if it were actual leather.  I thought the overall appearance of the "leather" was pretty comparable to the real thing with only a touch more gloss.  I really liked the woven sides and how they didn't hinder the interior structure in any way; however, I was disappointed with the thin straps and how they would cut in slightly into my shoulders if I filled the tote to capacity. 

I tested out this tote in Orange (not shown above) and was shocked (and not in a good way) at the color; however, with that said...I am not a fan of the color orange in anything and my SIL will probably love it to death!

Here are some of the features listed online:
  • Weathered faux leather
  • Attached/secured front locking magnet/snap pocket (6″x 5.75″x 1.5″) with faux leather knotted pull
  • Fauxsol Bronze logo plate
  • Antique bronze gromets (eyelets) with detailed faux leather strapping weaved through gromets
  • Includes three interior compartments and middle zippered/padded sleeve
  • Interior pockets including two open on front wall and one zippered pocket on back wall
  • Interior compartments are secured with magnetic snaps
  • Includes bonus Fauxsol City Bag
 Overall, I really liked this tote and the price being under $100 is great for one of such quality.
