Hey I really like this shoulder bag. I tried it on today and took the stuffing out and it really is a great bag - SO MUCH better than the stella I have which is very very very very heavy. Ever since I got my Stella (which was my "breakthough" bag ) I have been living large (w/ bags, of course) hahaha This one is a great size. I am going to see if I can eventually get one after the holidays. I just have to watch it w/ gifts etc. but I love this bag and deals will come next year too!!!
