OK, the clear handbag, or PVC trend seemed like it might be fleeting, but in fact, it is not. PVC bags are a huge trend, which is showing no signs of dissipating. I always wondered, “why would someone want to wear a clear handbag? People can see what’s in your bag!” Well, I have joined the PVC handbag trend and it was a great decision! Let me tell you why. . .
My daughter cheers for her high school football team, and her high school was invited by the 49er’s to play their homecoming game at Levi’s Stadium. This is a huge honor and opportunity for the kids. It could be the only time in their lives they get to play in a professional stadium. The opportunity was very exciting! For the students and parents attending the game, it was exciting too; the drawback was when we learned we needed to adhere to professional stadium rules, which include professional stadium handbag guidelines. Oh boy! Put away those Louis Vuitton Neverful’s ladies! They are not allowed.
I have attended games at professional stadiums before, but I always brought a teeny tiny little Valentino Rockstud bag. which doesn’t even fit my wallet. Last time I wore it to a Raider’s game, they almost confiscated it saying it was 1/4 inch too wide! Which I knew it wasn’t. It was within the guidelines, but who wants to argue with security and almost get a designer bag confiscated!? I would never have seen it again. Thankfully I was able to get them to re-measure it and let me in the stadium with it, but I vowed never to risk bringing it again. Which meant I needed a new game day handbag.
Since I found out we needed to adhere to Levi’s Stadium rules, which means a clear bag under 12″ x 6″ x 12″, I went shopping for the perfect stadium approved handbag I could re-wear. Thank you so much to Staud for designing the Staud Mini Shirley bag with it’s removable pouch! Since sports stadium’s require the clear, PVC handbag to have zero color, this handbag by Staud turned out to be a godsend.
The Staud Mini Shirley bag is well within the size guidelines for a professional stadium handbag, and the removable pouch means it can be re-worn for occasions which do not require a clear handbag. Love that!

The Staud Mini Shirley bag is extremely roomy without the pouch inside. I found there was plenty of extra room inside the bag after I placed everything I needed inside; which included lipstick, chapstick, wallet, keys, and sunglasses. My kids were able to hand me things during the game which fit easily inside the bag. Love!
Staud’s Mini Shirley bag is very sturdy, and easy to carry. If I needed to free up my hand, I could slip it temporarily on my wrist, that was great for juggling food, or holding something for someone while they take off, or put on, a sweatshirt. This turned out to be the perfect stadium handbag! I can’t wait to wear it to a 49er’s game next month, and for future professional sporting events throughout the year.
Staud Mini Shirley bag review with removable pouch
On days when I am not attending a sporting event at a professinal stadium, the Staud Mini Shirley bag is perfect for day to day activities. The pouch also fits all my essentials such as my chapstick, lipstick, keys, wallet, and sunglasses. This is a really cute tote bag which is easy to clean, and perfect for rainy days. I never wear my leather bags in the rain, so this bag is perfect as we move into our rainy season here in the San Francisco Bay Area. PVC can get wet wet wet, and it will be fine! Love this!
Of course you know me, I love a good trend and an IT bag. Coincidentally, the Staud Mini Shirley bag has current IT bag status. It is the most sought-after PVC bag on the market. The Mini Shirley by Staud was spotted on the streets of New York during fashion week as one of the big favorite handbags of the fashion set. It also comes in two sizes, the mini which is stadium friendly, and a larger version known simply as the Staud Shirley bag. There are also several colors to choose from, so if black isn’t your thing, you can find this bag in a color you like. Love that!
The Staud Mini Shirley bag is a fabulous bag to buy now and wear during the rainy season. It is also the perfect bag for game day! I love a professional stadium approved handbag! Don’t you?
