Staud’s Shirley Transparent Handbag Review

May 6, 2019

I’m not always an “it bag” girl. Sometimes I feel that the new cool bag trend will be over before I know it and the hefty price tag isn’t worth the short shelf life.

BUT, when a fun new bag trend is around $200 (rather than $2K), I start to consider it! Especially when it’s a BIG bag, and not some ridiculous teeny little thing that I could never actually carry much in. And especially when it’s the beginning of the trend and I see this one having some “legs” …. So I treated myself to the latest transparent Staud bag and I’m loving it.

The Staud brand was started in 2015 in Los Angeles by Shirley Staudinger and George Augusto. With it’s empowering vibe, attention to detail, and accessibility, the brand is quickly becoming a favorite of the fashionista set.

I love the funky transparent trend, and Staud is crushing this design, although it also offers many other cool bags. I’ve had my eye on the Shirley bag, the large size of course. I couldn’t quite decide if I wanted the black, tan, or cream shade, and I’m glad I waited just because I’m in love with the new garnet shade of patent leather!

I love the versatility of this transparent bag. I can always use other bags inside the PVC outer shell and give the bag alternate looks.

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
