What is "The Shoulder Strap"?
Created in December 2011, The Shoulder Strap is an independent editorial about handbags and accessories. All photography is original, unless noted. All posts are the opinion of the blogger, unless noted. TheShoulderStrap.com is not owned or affiliated with any of the designers, companies, etc. that are mentioned on this site. This is a blog dedicated to the love, lore and style of contemporary accessories and related topics.

Who is the writer?

Can I use your photography?
You may ONLY use my photography when you have my written permission. Unless noted, all photography taken on this blog is my own and therefore original. Written permission is required, especially when reposting to another publication or printing a publication. Additionally, please show a clear visible credit to “The Shoulder Strap – www.theshoulderstrap.com” with the image. For permission, send an email to: contact@theshoulderstrap.com.

Can I post your content elsewhere?  
No. If you’d like to use any of my content or photos (see above), please contact me for more information and we come to an arrangement about how to deal with content-sharing. Again, send an email to: contact@theshoulderstrap.com.

Where did you get the products to review?
Some items are borrowed, from friends, are gifts, or personal pieces of the blogger's collection. Some products that come directly from manufacturers asking for review and are reviewed for compensation will be noted. All other product origins will not necessarily be specified in the blog post.

Disclosure of Material Connection:
I have not received any compensation for writing my posts (unless further disclosed. See statement above). I have no material connection to the brands, products, or services that I have mentioned. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Why don’t you always list prices?
It’s not about the price; it’s about the product. This blog is designed for readers to share in the love of fashion and the genius designs that come out of fashion houses around the world–without the hindrance of thinking about your bank account. Think of this as an art gallery for accessory fanatics.

I love your blog! Can I write for you?
Thanks so much! I’m so excited that you’re just as passionate about fashion as I am. Right now, it's just me, but if anything changes, I’ll be asking for guest writers here on the FAQ page.

We like your general vibe, writing and photography. Would you consider producing content for us?
