I am the proud owner of a gorgeous caramel Box B-bag. Most of the time, I see people photographed carrying their bbag by the handles but the shoulder strap is always attached and dangling below. I know that I will never, ever use the shoulder strap so I took mine off. But now I am wondering if that is some kind of fashion faux pas, since most celebs I see have their shoulder straps attached. Thoughts? Thanks!
I leave mine on, but because I occasionally USE it. So if you know you won't use it, I think you can leave it off. One less thing to get tangled up in your stuff. And if you *might* use it, you can always throw it inside the bag just in case.
I mostly carry my City by the handles, but I keep the strap on it for those times when I need my hands free (just toss it on my shoulder vs. sitting it down somewhere). I also think it looks cute with the strap hanging from it. I also tuck the ends of my zipper inside of the bag at each end.
