Every woman on the go needs a good, sturdy tote bag that's both stylish and functional. With the Haven Croc bag from Sous Sus by Sharlena Bernard, you get just that. The 16" wide classic crocodile bag is big enough to fit my MacBook Pro along with my make-up bag and all of my other essentials while the suede-lined inside compartments zip up to hold loose bills and credit cards. There's even a smartphone pouch! But one of the best features of this bag is that you don't have to worry about your things slipping out of it. With a clever magnetic strip on each side of the tote, it securely fastens to ensure all of your items remain just where you placed them. Though it comes in gold, red, or bone, my bag is black and goes perfectly with my outfits, whether I'm heading to the office or out on the town. In the ballet world, "sous sus" means to "elevate," and this tote has definitely brought my handbag game to a whole new level.
