    All is bright this Christmas, especially with this crimson knockout on the horizon. This Stella McCartney bag is definitely a contender for our Christmas gifts for her edit and one you’ll be toting around all holiday season – and well into 2018.

    Red is still very much the colour of the season and this accessory is crafted from a vegan leather called Alter Nappa, although you’d never be able to tell the difference. With a gold star detail to reward you for all the crap you had to put up with this year, I particularly love the unique star quilting – it’s giving me major Power Puff Girls vibes in the best of ways.

    Wear it on your shoulder with stunning Christmas party dresses or across your body over a houndstooth winter coat to take on the snow in style. If red isn’t your vibe, there’s also a white and black version that’ll go with pretty much any outfit below.

    The Stella Star Small Shoulder Bag is available for £745 from Stella McCartney, so it’s definitely investment piece material. It’s been a roller coaster of a year though and say it after me: you deserve this.

    There’s only thirteen days till December 25th. Can you believe it?

    I for one will be stuffing my face with mince pies till the bitter Boxing Day end. Preferably with this bag in hand.
