Ever been annoyed by the straps on your handbag slipping right off your shoulder?
How many times have you been carrying too much to handle only to have your bag or your purse strap slip off your shoulder and down to the crook of your elbow? Or those days when you are wearing a bulky sweater or a coat and the strap on your handbag just don’t stay put and you have to keep slinging your purse back up on your shoulder over and over again.
I have a few handbags that just stay put on my shoulder and I’ve been very tempted to get out the double sided tape and that non-slip mat stuff (I call it rubber grippy stuff) and modify my purse straps myself.
When Christine, a mom to four kids, and the founder of StrapDiva emailed me about her nifty invention, my first thought was why didn’t I hear about something like this before now! It’s perfect!
StrapDiva is a no-slip purse strap cover that snaps on to a single purse strap or two handles together. It is made of super soft and luxurious leather with a suede lining. On the outside, there is a special material to prevent slippage and help keep your straps where they belong.
They sent a complimentary sample of StrapDiva in exchange for an honest opinion and review on The Fashionable Housewife blog, but I ended up liking their product so much, I had to share it with you here on The Fashionable Gal as well!
I was eager to try the strap out on my Linea Pelle Dylan Patchwork tote with dual leather handles. It fit perfect over both handles and snapped on easily. The next day, I grabbed my purse on the way out the door and was pleasantly surprised with the product. Because it kept both handles together, I was able to throw the bag right on my shoulder, no problem. And once it was there, it stayed put.
It might seem like a minor inconvenience to have to deal with the straps on your handbag constantly sliding off, but you’ll be surprised how much of a difference it makes in the functionality of your bag. I’ve thrown purses into the back of my closet because I couldn’t keep the darn thing on my shoulder. Now I have an easy solution!
I know some of you fashionistas are thinking that you don’t want some funky strap cover snapped on to your $1,400 haircalf handbag. But here’s the thing… if you don’t use the bag because the straps always slide off your shoulder, than the bag is useless. StrapDiva is the most fashionable solution to this common problem.
They come in 2 sizes (small or large), 6 colors (black, medium brown, dark brown, gold/beige, red, blue), and your choice of Lambskin or Full Grain leather.
I would like to see them have more color options in the future. I think two more shades of brown and white would be good to add to their collection. When in doubt though, use black or gold. The black will blend in well with most handbags and the gold would look good on any color handbag that has gold hardware.
