I purchased my new black stam the first week of June because I loved it so much and wanted it for fall. I hadn't worn it yet, because I wanted to keep it for fall and felt it was too "heavy" to wear for summer. Well, now that it's post-Labor Day, I finally wore it last night!!! I LOVE it even more than before. It really is quite a fabulous bag. And yes, I determined my entire outfit last night based on what would look good with the Stam.
