Too short for me
March 20, 2018
I loved this strap. It's seriously gorgeous with beautiful, soft glove-tanned leather. It's edgy and feminine, and can really spice up any boring bag in an instant. However I find it to be extremely short on me. I'm 5'5'' and skinny, but this strap, when attached to my purses, would have my bag rest against my hipbone. Both when worn crossbody and on the shoulder. It looks super awkward on me. I am used to my bags resting against my upper thigh. I know there is a way to "adjust" it, but it doesn't make any difference. Really disappointing considering the price. I wished Coach would make this strap long and truly adjustable, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.
Also, the strap does tend to slip off my shoulder from time to time, which is why I prefer wearing this crossbody. It's more comfortable this way anyway, but how can I wear it when the bag sits at such an awkward position on my body? Another thing, the flowers can and will get tangled in your hair and rip it out if you're not careful. So if you have long hair (mine's a little past shoulder length) be careful when using this bag strap. You can lose a few strands of hair using this thing.
Finally, -1 star because this strap never goes on sale. But that's not really Macy's fault.
