You'll note that I have taken the extra straps off. I know the ML is a cross-body, which is why I had not ventured into it. However, I'm not into crossbody bags at all. But, once I realized it could also be shoulder bag with short strap, I was all over it. I LOVE bags with short straps that can tuck securely under your arm. So, I removed the end pieces and will carry it as a shoulder bag 99% of the time. It's nice to know I can use it as a cross-body if I wish, but that is unlikely most of the time.
Anyway gals, I LOVE her and am thrilled with the purchase. As usual, MHB came through!
