  1. I love my Nikkis to death but when it's winter and I'm wearing a heavy jacket, I really wish it came with a crossbody strap! Has anyone managed to put a crossbody strap on their Nikki?
     
  2. I have the Rikki and the Nikki - you can probably use a different longer RM strap or buy a replacement strap on ebay or etsy.
     
  3. i imagine the reg size Nikki is not suitable as a crossbody cuz it's just too big :sweatdrop:
     
  4. I don't think so - I have the marc by marc jacobs too hot to handle large tote which is about the same size that I wear crossbody.

     
  5. just googled it and it's huge! :P
     
  6. It's really not. I would take a pic but my camera literally just died.

  8. The Rikki is a great style. I wish they would make those again. I agree with Kasey that the regular size Nikki would be too big for me to use with a shoulder strap. A mini might be OK, though.

    I did consider getting a Rikki (or two haha) but I'd rather just find a way to repurpose my Nikkis rather than buying more bags.

    (I can't believe I just said that)

    The biggest problem I see with just buying a strap to attach to my Nikki is to find one the right color. Would a MAB strap work? I dont have any MAB/MAMs so I can't really tell.

    Oh please please try it this weekend and let us know!! :biggrin:
     
  10. I agree it's a little on the big side (bigger than a Balenciaga Velo for sure) but it's so slouchy that I feel like it works. At least it seems like it would work when I hold it up against my hip. I'm 5'9" though... might look a bit overwhelming on someone smaller
