MSG, I know! The leather is awesome. This and the Royal, Envy, and Plum ones look so chewy! She's outdone herself this Fall! I got mine from HC as well, amazing deal with bing cashback! So excited! Hope you can find one with a code ASAP!
Scoobies, I know what you mean. The strap is too short for me to wear it crossbody without me thinking it feels or looks odd. Love it over the shoulder though, I may get a longer strap with less noticeable hardware like I am for my MAMM so you can't tell that it clashes.
