I was just at the new Bloomingdale's in San Francisco and discovered the LV counter! Waaahooo! Helpful SA gentlemen helped me come up with a long strap for my Illovo PM. I bought it and have now figured out that I need to remove the short original strap. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it with the long strap! I like the long straps that I can wear across my body...... and there are so few long straps on any purses these days! I think its high time for them to come back with alot more long straps!
