Well, I have never been a huge speedy fan, partly because I like shoulder bags better. I was lucky to snag a strap for my new toledo blue 35. Also I was looking at the Epi Riviera, which is a hand bag too, but my SA said alot of people use a strap with it. She pointed out even corporate was getting the message, people like shoulder straps...that's why the cruise cabas has one. How do you feel about straps on a handbag?
