When I first saw the Star Mela Arla Clutch, something immediately caught my eye. Oddly enough, it wasn’t the delicate beading- my eyes were drawn the patterned fabric instead. It reminds me of those floaty, boho-chic tops that are everywhere right now. You don’t see patterns like this on bags very much, but I really like it! But I understand that most people will be more drawn to the bead work on this piece. It is very pretty as well! I love the color combination of coral, turquoise, and bronze. Plus the design reminds me of an elaborate beaded necklace, which makes this piece perfect for adding a little interest to your look and can actually take the place of jewelry.
By now, I hope we are all familiar with Star Mela and this designer’s sense of style. Why do I say that? It is simple, really. Star Mela is famous for its bohemian inspired pieces, which is the epitome of casual summer style. Perhaps that is why I like to feature Star Mela pieces from time to time, especially when I have summer on the brain. If you haven’t seen anything from this designer yet, I highly recommend checking them out. Right now, I am liking the Star Mela Arla Clutch. Maybe you will too!
