    Default Cut the tassels off?

    Ridiculous first world "problem"--would you cut the tassels off the ends of this bag? I don't especially like them, but haven't been able to bring myself to cut 'em off. And I can't take them off WITHOUT cutting them, so no going back after that.

    So frivolous question of the day--cut 'em off or no?

    Cut them off if you want. I think the bag will still be great looking without them.

    If you don't like then - cut 'em off, and don't look back!

    I like them but, it's your purse, if you don't like them cut them off; however, if you want to sell it in the future, it could potentially effect the price.

    Cut them! They are ugly! (IMHO)

    I don't really like them. I think the bag would be much cuter if you cut them off!

    I would leave them on the purse.

    In a heartbeat. Tassels remind me of men's dress shoes!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    What are the chances that you would wind up selling the purse? If it's likely, then maybe worth keeping them. If not, then cut them!

    You could always take it to a show repair place, or a tailor and have them take them off without ruining them. Then, if you wanted to replace them you could easily do so.

    Ah see I like the tassles on that purse. The bag would still look good without them, but the metal loops might look a little random without something attached. But then again, tassles are no less random than loops... lol

    I like them, however would prefer if there were only one. Two is a bit of overkill.

    I knew it would be D & B because I just bought one and agonized over the Tass,Ed. Love the bag, though. I can't think of a way to cut mine off without it looking bad, sadly. So I'm just ignoring them.
