Thank you... Yes, this is the new size. It has a shoulder strap which is easier... It can be sling on your shoulder, but I don't think it is long enough to cross body though. Still it's a great bagOh my, it's gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing
Is this a new size? I love the cross body option
I don't close the clasp. What I do is just zip and let the flap unclasped. I think it still looks cool that way. The reason I don't clasp is because it's difficult like you mention and i'm afraid of ruining the flap and belt. It's not very noticeable if you don't clasp imo Btw, congrats, I hope you can find a way around it or just do what I doCongrats! I just bought this exact bag too. I'm a little unsure if I have the patience for the clasp. Yet I'm not sure I can bear the thought of returning it because it's so beautiful. What are your thoughts? Does opening and closing it get any easier with time?
