I only own one small purse like this, but I think it's okay, because at least it looks more kind of sporty.
But usually I can't stand these tiny things, sort-of-dangling-around in your armpit. Awful, I wouldn't be able to concentrate with such a thing. *lol*

Jeff Koons and Tom Sachs have also painted the bags. TS made it black I think.

I got rid of any "baguettes" I owned a few years ago, and don't miss them!

Like I said in my previous post, I think one can avoid that trappings of looking like a 'mall girl' by wearing with a modern outfit. For me, high waisted wide leg jeans and a black blazer. It'd be fresher to wear that with a smaller bag than my traditional big ones. The new ones are nice that they are convertible but I don't know that i'd spend money on them. I might try tucking my strap in and just use it as a clutch....

I didn't like the Fendi Baguette the 1st time around,and still don't. I never understood the buzz about it.

^ yep....i guess that was the point though....softgrey's initial post mentioned detachable straps that turned them into clutches, so i'm assuming that's what has happened with the above ones that i posted...
...i'm still not a fan, though. :p
