One of my favorite bag styles for the spring 2019 season is the unique shaped tote. They comes in all forms, including train cases, circles, squares, flower pots, and more. While the Staud Alice is not specific to the spring 2019 season, it is part of their ongoing collection, this is the season when it caught my eye.
The Staud Alice bag is an unique shaped, mini tote bag which features a medium length strap, and large interior mirror. This cute little bag is perfect for pairing with spring and summer dresses, feminine ensembles, and this season’s influx of ruffles. It has an edgy yet feminine vibe; which is a vibe I love.
Blue is my favorite color, so while I spotted this bag in ivory, black, brown, green, and red on store shelves of several retailers, the one that stole my heart was this blue version; which I could only find online online here.
My apologies for my blue-tone photos taken on top of a white tablecloth. I think my DSLR might be near the end of it’s life, and not even photoshop could save the blue-tone of these pictures. If you look at the top and bottom photos taken with a a black dress, you will see the true blue color of this bag. Those photos were taken with my point-and-shoot, which is a a Canon GX7. Love it by the way. . .but I digress. . .
My Staud Alice Bag is petite, and does not offer a lot of wiggle room inside. That being said, it has just enough room to carry daily purse essentials such as a small wallet, keys, iPhone, lipstick, and sunglasses.
What fits inside the Staud Alice Bag
The interior of the Staud Alice Bag has a triangular type shape. The bottom is narrow, and it widens as you get to the opening at the top of the bag. In order to fit my daily purse essentials, I stacked my my lipstick and keys at the bottom, followed by my mini wallet, phone, and sunglasses. I always put the sunglasses on top so they don’t get squished. This stacking method allows the bag to close and secure.
The closure of the Staud Alice Bag is a magnetic snap which is easy to open and close. It is fastened on a tab which is easy to grab and open. As long as what you are reaching for is on top of your stack, this is an easy bag to wear daily since it offers a simple way to get in and out of the bag.
You can wear the the Staud Alice Bag on the crook of your arm, or you can wear it hand-held. If you need to put it over your shoulder for a moment while running for a Taxi or chasing your toddler, it can be done. It is not comfortable to wear on the shoulder, that is only a temporary way of carrying it. I recommend wearing it hand-held, or on the crook of your arm.
The best thing about the Staud Alice Bag is that it is priced under $400, and has a IT factor to it. Love that! There are very few IT bags on the market with an affordable price tag. If you are looking for a seasonless color, snap up the black, brown or ivory. If you want to have a little fun, this bag currently comes in blue, green, and red.
