  1. Anyone own a Chelsea satchel? If so, do you like it? I'm looking at one on ebay, but I'm not sure if the top flap that shuts via the turn lock would be a pain. Also, is it very comfortable on the shoulder to carry?
     
  2. i got a signature one when they 1st came out at the boutique i dont think it fit very well on the shoulder. the turn lock closure did annoy me so back it went.
     
  3. Hi,
    I have the Chelsea Satchel in the Mineral color. I don't use her much. You have to hold the bag to turn the turnlock since it kind of sinks down unless you have a lot of stuff in her. I don't wear her over the shoulder as the straps are a not too large. (at least to go over my shouder) I do like the color and the snaps on the straps. I should pull her out and use her. When I first saw Mineral Chelsea at the FP Coach, I knew I had to have her!!! LOL I also had the Chelsea Hobo which went over the shoulder very nicely!!! I just sold her to one of my friend's.
    Good Luck !!!!

  4. I don't have the satchel, but I used to have a Chelsea Jocelyn Duffle and one of the Patchwork Duffles. They both had the flaps with the turn locks...I didn't have any trouble with them.
     
  5. I have the Optic Signature Chelsea Satchel. I love her, but I agree with the other ladies on here, you have to hold it to open it. But I just think she's so pretty!! :love:
     
  6. Anyone have any pictures of their Chelsea in action or over the shoulder? I just can't make my mind up about this bag.
     
  7. I have the vintage leather satchel and it is really heavy. The leather is nice and thick. The turn lock closure is a pain, but I got used to it pretty quick. It does fit on my shoulder, but I do not like the way it makes my arm stick out. It is really wide under the arm I guess. I do like to carry it in the crook of my arm best. I really do love my bag though. Here is some old modeling pics of my Chelsea satchel.
