The Stella bag is a lovely bag that will match well with a romantic-style outfit. The bag has “springtime” written all over it, and is the perfect bag for a trip around the city or a lunch date with friends on a sunny day. The bottom pleats in its design create the deep corners that allow the bag to be spacious, while its upper pleats are simply stylistic, adding to its girlish look. Other than the pleats, the ribbon handle is the main point that makes this bag stand out. The handle is neither long nor short, giving The Stella Bag an in-between feel- that is, a look that is both like a handbag and a shoulder bag at the same time. To be called a handbag though, this bag is too roomy, as it has enough space to carry fairly large, book-sized items. Using fabrics of solid shades when making this bag will create a bag that is suitable for semiformal wear, whereas a brighter fabric with patterns, such as the one I’ve used, will result in a bag that will complement a more casual style of dress.
