I saw the bag and it is beautiful. It reminds me of the Julianne. For me, I didn't like the fact that all my stuff was going to sit on the bottom, therefore, it would be hard to find anything and it would make the bag bulge on the bottom. Does that make sense? Also, I found the shorter strap a little to short to wear on the shoulder with a winter coat on.
For those of you that own this bag, what do you think of the crossbody strap? The lilac is the perfect color for me, but I'm weary of the unadjustable crossbody strap. Plus like Toonces, I'm only 4'11". If the old Parker Hippies were too big for me, this one is probably too big too. They need to make a smaller size.
I had the Parker Hippie and saw this new lilac hippie in Palm Beach-the color is gorgeous! It is large, and it would be great to see a smaller version. I like the crossbody style, but my prefer Hailey due to the full zip top closure.
