I am at a loss for words. Honestly, I don’t know how to even start talking about this bag. I guess I will start off by saying that the Botkier Metallic Gladiator Tote is not for me. I am usually a huge fan of earth tones, but to me, this bag is not worth the selling price. I guess I can see why it is called a Gladiator Tote though. Doesn’t the material remind you of either the armor or shoes worn in the movie Gladiator? I appreciate the attention to deatail though. The snake-embossed metalic leather might look better if the color was a bit different. I do like the gold hardware found on this Botkier bag. However, I think the gold hardware and the color of the material run together too closely. Instead of adding an elment that stands out, the hardware seems muted. More than anything, I struggle to think of a single outfit that would work with this purse. But, if you feel differently, you can buy this bag through ShopBop for $695.
