Rearward injuries, lopsided shoulders, laborious key searching... All valid reasons for which I have embarked on a resolute search for the beauty queen of shoulder bags. Auditioning categories include proportions (curvy essential - too small and it becomes useless), talent (hidden compartments hit judge's soft spots), bikini (must satisfy transeasonal needs) and question round (must be substance as well as beauty.) The opening rounds proved arduous but the end is in sight, my friends. Laugh if you will, but given the fairly hefty price tags - and yes, I do believe you get what you pay for - the thought process could be nothing short of meticulous. What would you score them?
