Review - Mad Style Hidden Soles Tote Allows You to Stylishly Carry Your Shoes and Umbrella


Twisted OrchidPurses, not diamonds, are this girl's best friend!  I absolutely LOVE handbags of all kinds and have way more of them than I probably should.  A great looking purse can easily jazz up even the most dull and boring of outfits.  If there's one thing I've known about myself for a long time, it's that I just cannot carry a small purse!

Believe me, I've tried to cram all of my stuff into one of those cute, tiny purses, but it is just not for me.  I love large purses!  Stylish totes make such a bold statement and can actually carry all of my essentials with ease.  Mad Style has recently taken the classic tote style purse to a whole new practical level with their Hidden Soles line.  Keep reading to learn why the Hidden Soles Tote will help give your soles a rest!

I reviewed the Mad Style Hidden Soles Tote in Cream from Twisted Orchid, which retails for $56.00.

Mad Style Hidden Soles Tote

The Mad Style Hidden Soles Tote from Twisted Orchid is a patent leather crocodile patterned handbag with washable shoe compartment lining.  This purse opens from the top and has a main zippered storage area along with a roomy media pocket with magnetic closure.  There's even a small zippered pocket on the opposite side which is perfect for storing your keys or other items you want to access quickly.  The main zippered pocket measures 14.5" tall x 17 1/4" wide.

Hidden Soles bags feature a separate, concealed exterior compartment that can hold even your tallest stilettos (up to 5" heels) and umbrella.  Many women have to carry multiple pairs of shoes with them at any given time, such as one pair for work, a pair for the gym, evening shoes, or a pair of comfortable shoes for their every day commute.  Now, women can stylishly tote a second pair of shoes hidden in their handbag for just such occasions.

Since becoming a stay-at-home mom, I don't need to carry additional pairs of shoes for work, but I do usually need to when I go out for a night on the town.  I guess my feet have lost their ability to withstand long periods of time in 4" heels like they used to.  By the end of the night, you can usually find me in a pair of the rollable flats which are so popular these days.

This, of course, leaves me holding my 4" shoes the rest of the night.  But with the Hidden Soles Tote, I can safely and securely store my shoes in the bottom zippered compartment of this stylish bag and continue to dance the night away!

If you love carrying big purses like I do, just check out all of the pictures above to see how much this baby will hold!  There is plenty of room to carry your water bottle, book, hairbrush, makeup, knitting project, toys and snacks for the kids, etc.  Now, you will never have to worry about not having enough room to be truly prepared for any situation when you leave the house!


Mad Style from Twisted Orchid has definitely designed a winner with the Hidden Soles Tote.  It is super stylish, with plenty of fashionable details that make this handbag look great.  It is also well-designed and super functional too!  From the waterproof and washable lining to the concealed shoe & umbrella holder to the five silver purse protectors on the bottom of this bag, the Hidden Soles Tote does it all!  It also comes in a variety of colors (Coral, Black, Periwinkle, Red and Cream) to suit any fashion statement you want to make!
