For Christmas this year, the boyfriend gave me the Gallery Signature Studded Tote in Brown. It's absolutely beautiful,,,,but, I have never been a huge fan of how the gallery totes close and how they feel resting underneath my arm. He knows I was really digging the shiny lurex fabric this season, and needed a new brown bag - so I know he put a lot of thought into buying it. He wouldn't be hurt if I exchanged it, but I'm not so sure I want to give it up because the color is just so darn gorgeous!!! So does anyone have this bag? Will the straps and the boxy bottom start to loosen up a bit after time so that it is more comfortable as a shoulder bag? I did put all my stuff in it, and that seemed to help with the straps falling off my shoulder. Please help make a decision, or suggest a new bag!!! Thanks.
