I finally took my New Brown Medium Signature Carly out for a Trial on Saturday------- I love it. I have never had so many compliments on a purse from strangers!! The Brass and the Brown Signature are stunning together. I was debating between the Black or the Brown Signature and I am glad I picked the Brown--It is so Beautiful! I purchased a Solid Brass dogleash clip at Ace hardware Store for $5 (looks identical to the one on my Carly) and extended the Shoulder drop a few inches. It is so comfortable now! I wore it into the Coach Store today to see the new Floor Set and my SA thought the idea was fantastic. She asked if I minded if she told her customers about adding the Solid Brass dogleash to add to the shoulder drop. It looks just like it came that way- those who can't wear their Medium Carlys with a winter jacket could just add this and they could wear their Carlys in the winter also. Coach should start selling these as Extenders for the shoulder drop on their handbags!! It only takes a second to add it on.
