Did you ever buy something for a specific purpose and then have it not work out? I decided to take the cross body strap off my new bag - and I sought out this bag completely wanting it to be a cross body. I questioned the narrowness of the strap when I made the purchase but I crossed my fingers hoping it would handle the weight of the bag. Nope.
Jeans and earrings: American Eagle
Sweater: Smart Set
Bag: Kate Spade
Turns out, I like the bag anyway. Even without the strap.
