The Belinda bag features an interesting bell-shaped body, a pieced front panel with piping, and a generous flap for lots of pretty hardware!

Zipped pockets on the inside and on the back help keep small items close at hand.

A graduated side panel and darts create fullness to the bottom.

The strap can be threaded through the flap grommets or attached with a gate ring for a little added bling!
