Has anyone ever thought of doing this? If so, what ideas do you have about how to accomplish this? I think the perfect style for me would be a Work with a shoulder strap. I am so frustrated with the Balenciaga styles in that I can't really find one that works perfectly for me. The closest I've come is the Part-Time, because it's roomy enough PLUS it has the shoulder strap. BUT ... I don't like the shape - too shallow and long!!! If you've seen the Mandy Moore pic wearing her Marine Giant Part-Time w/the shoulder strap, I think that pic illustrates the problem perfectly (see the Celebrity thread). I just don't think it looks good. Are you listening, Balenciaga? What do you have against putting a shoulder strap on the Work? Huh? I would even accept longer handles as a compromise ... but they would have to be MUCH longer, so that they would accommodate a bulky coat.
