OK, so I'm new to Hermes (not to admiring, but to really educating myself now that I'm ready to actually purchase something), and I'm asking alot of stupid questions on the forum, to which all you lovely ladies have graciously responded!!! But here's a really stupid one, since I have not had the privilege to actually see or hold one of the birkins IRL: I know that these bags are meant to be held daintily in the crook of one's arm, but it seems to me (correct me, please, if i am wrong), that in a pinch (say, you need two hands for something), that you could possibly get it onto your shoulder if you are a small person (like me!). . .I can't really tell how long the straps are (anyone have a real measurement for the straps on a 35 birk?), but it seems that they are not much shorter than my current bag, which really just barely gets on there. . ..i only ask because i am a true klutz, and sometimes need both my arms/hands to catch myself as i'm falling. . ..
