April Fashion Favorite: Angela Roi Eloise Satchel | Review

 

Angela Roi's Eloise Satchel came into my life in a form of present and that’s exactly how it feels like every time I get to wear it. ( like a precious little present that brings me joy every time I look at it!) It has been my favorite bag for the past two months and I wanted to share why I love it so much with you.

Angela Roi

I would like to start this review with a few words about Angela Roi as a brand. 

Angela Roi is an ethical luxury handbag brand based out of New York that was created on the foundation of kindness. Founder's love for animals prompted the idea of creating chic handbags that were cruelty-free and vegan. Angela Roi believes that there is no need for fashion to be cruel, which I 100% agree with. Apart from using only premium vegan leather, AR also strives to support mistreated animals with donations to local shelters and charities and I LOVE that.

What Angela Roi says makes them stand out:

  • Modern Classic Designs

  • Premium Vegan Leather (EPUL)

  • Gold Plated Hardware

  • Supporting Mistreated Animals

  • Sweatshop-free Manufacturing

  • Handcrafted by Skilled Artisans

  • Fair Pricing

After enjoying one of their bags for a couple of months, I can absolutely attest to the fact that the quality and attention to detail is on a whole new level. It quickly became pretty clear that plenty of time and effort goes into designing and creating an Angela Roi handbag and that's exactly why I feel like they have every right to call themselves a luxury brand. 

The Eloise Satchel

Let's talk about Eloise, shall we? 

Designed with pebble textured, this satchel comes with both a top and a crossbody strap.  I'm wearing it with a top handle only in the pictures, which I feel like makes it look very feminine and delicate. It works perfectly with a vintage look and I think will look beautiful with dresses as well as suits. Crossbody strap gives it a more chic and fun look and I love pairing it then with some jeans and sneakers! I definitely find it quite versatile in that sense. I also enjoy the size of this satchel because it is on a smaller size but will still fit everything you would potentially need on a night out. It will absolutely fit a small wallet, a phone, headphones and essentials like a lip balm, lipstick and a face powder. The pebbled vegan leather is very soft and feels more luxurious than any other vegan leather I've tried so far. On the inside, the bag is designed with a material that mimics brown suede and not only it's beautiful but actually feels very realistic and smooth. I'm also very impressed with how sturdy the hardware feels, however, I need more time to see how well the gold platting performs.

Style Details provided by AR website:

  • Designer pebble textured satchel crossbody

  • Antique gold hardware

  • Detachable and adjustable long strap

  • Detachable but non-adjustable top handle

  • Magnetic button closure

  • Phone compartment inside

  • Zipper compartment inside

  • Fully lined vegan suede interior

Final Thoughts

I'm overall very impressed with the quality as well as the design of this bag and would absolutely love to invest in some other pieces from Angela Roi. I have my eyes on the Grace Cross-Body in Lavender and Mia Mini Backpack in Mocha at this time! 

a💭Let me know if you switched to using vegan leather products and if you did what are some of your favorite companies? Do you own anything from Angela Roi? 

✨I was inspired to create this little photo shoot by the fact that this handbag is named after a flower and I hope you enjoy the photos we took! 💃🏻 On that day I paired it with my favorite vintage skirt from Dalena Vintage as well Nae vegan belt! ✨ 

UPDATE: Since this post went live, I have also acquired the Angela Roi Cher Tote in Color Camel and you can see my full review of it in this youtube video: Cher Tote Review & Unboxing
