I have to give you all a peek at my newest addition to my handbag family, my Diane von Furstenberg Medium Stephanie in navy. You all recently saw my large version of this bag, and my love for it only deepens with the addition of the medium size.

While smaller in size than the large version, the medium size provides ample space for every possible item you may want to carry. Today I have my wallet, a bottle of water, kleenex, lip gloss, a notebook, and glasses inside this bag and it is not weighing me down. There is also a longer shoulder strap and shorter hand strap option. I will go into further detail when we share a more comprehensive image, but I am so excited by this bag I have to share it with you all. Shoes pictured above are Bed Stu Aunt Bettie Hop Hand boat shoes and they are both affordable and super comfortable ($70 here).

You can get the medium Stephanie for $875 via ShopBop or DvF online.

    Hi. I am really torn about this bag. I am 5’1″ tall. The bag measures 19 inches across and I am concerned that it will be too big for me. What do you think?? Thanks.

    • It may be a bit oversized on you, but this bag is so unique – it is not meant to be tiny, but a slouchy shoulder bag. I think the medium size would be great :)

        Thanks for the quick response. I went to the DVF store here in Los Angeles and tried the bag on. It was not as big as I thought and I purchased it in silver. I also thought that the leather would be stiff, but it is SO soft!! Great bag!!

    • You are going to LOVE it!! Enjoy!!

        Your shoes look like topsiders….they just opened a store here in Los Angeles at the Century City mall. I bought 2 pairs…so comfortable…reminds me of the 80’s!!

    LOVE your nail polish!!! What color is it? (aside from “yellow” haha)

    • It is actually a green/yello color from Opi “Who the Shrek are you?”

  • Cate

    I’m so glad to hear a great review of this bag, since I’ve been debating it for about six months now.

  • gpc

    I actually really like the white, but I just know it would be so high maintenance!

  • PhotoGirl

    Love it. (Love your mani, too!)

  • Cathy Fitz

    Megs: You are responsible for my obsession with this bag – especially the medium size! And that’s not a bad thing understand. LOL

    • It is easy to obsess over – more pics early next week for you :)

      • Cathy Fitz

        Fantastic! I was just going to ask (beg)!

  • Tee

    I have been back and forth with this bag for over a year now…….I think it’s time for me to have one.

  • Ruhee

    The bag and the nail polish are great.J Lo was carrying this bag in the movie, The Back Up Plan!

  • Natasha

    Is this bag cames in different sizes? You mention medium size ( I believe that one $875 ) is there also large or small? Or is it just the name- medium Stephanie bag?:)

    • michelle

      The bag only comes in the medium size, if you want a shoulder bag. I saw a wristlet/clutch at the store as well. The blue bag and the white bag for spring/summer are bigger than the other colors that they have in the store. The blue and white are also heavier than the other colors. The store on Melrose had gold, silver, and black.

    I love this bag, it’s one of my faves. So lightweight and the woven leather gives it an interesting soft texture. Two thumbs up!

  • Jenny in Jacquard

    I absolutely adore this bag! The texture and color alone are amazing! And it’s perfectly paired with your bright yellow mani. :)

    What a cool bag! I took a close look at the bag on shopbop, and it’s actually knitted with thin strips of leather, amazing!
