You have less vachetta to worry about on the Pallas and you can buy a longer strap and carry it cross body. I think the pallas is a little smaller than the Estrella...I have the pallas and like how lightweight it is and that you can carry by the handles or on the shoulder.
Just out of curiousity, how much do you carry in your Pallas? Does it feel heavy if you put alot in it?
I have used it a couple of times. I did not treat the handles so I only carry it on nice days. I used it this past weekend and it was comfortable to wear even with my ipad. I don't think it feels heavy.. I was actually not sure after I purchased it if I liked it, I had gone back and forth on the style...I like it more now that I am using it more often..I had thought about selling it but I am glad that I didn't...I bought it in aurore and love the pop of color and it's nice have the outer pockets.
Thanks for the quick reply. I would probably use this as an everyday bag but i noticed without anything in it, comparing it to the Estrela that it was heavier but not surprised because the quality of the Pallas is much more superb! I'm so glad you kept it because it is a gorgeous bag. I keep going back and fourth because Estrela seems more practical but Pallas is just sooooo beautifuL!
estrela fits more, so if you need a larger bag for work/travel/kids it's a better choice.
Pallas is beautiful as well, feels more like a purse. I do not use handheld bags, so the short handles would not be useful for me.
Both are classic and timeless choices with nice details.
