I love handbags but, when they aren’t necessary, they can be a real pain in the neck (literally) to carry. That’s why I’m featuring the Sholdit Scarf as today’s Fab Find.
Being a fast paced woman, always on the go, creator Angela Lee, like most women, grew tired of carrying a traditional bag. Lugging a heavy purse, the strap cutting into the shoulder causing neck and back strain, having to dig around forever trying to find something, the constant worry of leaving it behind or fear of it hanging on a chair back for someone to swipe or dig in while not paying attention was the inspiration behind Sholdit. Additionally, every woman cringes at the thought of setting it on the floor only to get dirty, wet, or sticky and whatever else stuck to it.
The idea for a new style of purse struck Angela after two particularly frustrating events: almost losing her passport in the airport and then actually losing her cell phone at a sporting event because she didn’t want to carry a bag all day. Her idea for Sholdit combined her love of the look and feel of a scarf, the security of across the body bags, and the simplicity of a clutch to incorporate everything to create an entirely new and different style of purse.
Sholdit can be worn in a variety of ways and has the added value of converting back into a clutch when desired. The SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap purse prevents so many problems and frustrations including: making one limited to carrying only the necessities, giving hands free movement with out the strain, keeping valuables secure, plus it’s actually fashionable.
So toss those fanny packs away forever, leave the purse at home and grab a Sholdit.

I think it’s a great invention for when you travel (especially in an area where there is a lot pick pockets) or go to an event where you will be walking all day and don’t need another thing to carry, but I don’t like how it looks like she is digging into her bra/clothes to reach for something. Other than that, it’s a fabulous idea!
Agree. I also wondered if too much in the Sholdit can cause neck issues. The digging in the bra look may be because how she had it tied and the fact that the pocket was basically right over her boob! What I do like it for is a quick errand or times where you want to run out and not carry a purse because you only have a few light items.
BTW- Just had the visual from Mary Poppins when she pulls the tree and the hat rack out of her bag.
That’s so funny! And yes, I wondered about neck issues too. I stopped wearing an apron at work because the strain on the neck, especially when the pockets got full, was getting to me.
