For anyone doubting the staying power of the belted bags, I just wanted to let you know that I was at the Galleria yesterday and must have seen a dozen JC belted bags. I saw more JC's than any other designer bag and those are just the ones I recognized! I was the whole time I was there! I'm still searching for my first belted bag so it was great seeing them all in action- I didn't see any biker leather ones though. I kept wondering if anyone was from here- any PF'ers hitting up the mall yesterday?!
