You remember these bags from the 80's (hummm maybe allot of you gals don't) If you can, think of your first coach from that era. A cute, square, boxy thing bouncing on your hip,tethered up on your shoulder with two long flat straps supporting the prize. Man were these purses an inconvenience when it came to retrieving stuff out of them. Bending over to the side to get your desired artifact. Alas, I maybe speaking out of context? Although I prefer my shoulder bag to be hovering under my arm like a sucking child, there are those who rather have the kid pulled along and following the Master's command? So which is it? Who's your preverence? Is it both? Long straps for the new change? Short for habit? Will the new fashion trend have long term stability like the 80's?
