  1. it's so interesting to read everyone's opinions on this topic, as for some bizarre reason as-yet-unknown-to-piggy, my kelly is closer to the "workhorse bag" category - i wear mine casually all the time, and it's often the one i take on vacation because i like the security of the flap in touristy areas (^(oo)^)v

    i never use the shoulder strap though . . . i like it better as a hand carry, and the handle is the perfect size to carry in the crook of the elbow, IPHO

    tourist pig! very casual, no?

  3. You can wear a red Kelly with everything and anything. Using the shoulder strap does make it more casual and easy to wear. You need to give it a chance.

    This is a more casual leather as well. More so than box.
     
  4. Twillys can really add new and fun looks to your Kelly.

  7. I have a BBK with Gold...Sellier...probably one of the most formal of Kellys but I wear it casually all the time as I pretty much live in jeans! :tup:

  8. A canvas strap for my kelly just cost me $330.
     
  9. Looking great! It does look good with casual clothes. More modern.
     
  10. Katel, this was the first picture I thought of, also! One of my favorite all-time images of someone wearing a Kelly casually - and such a formal Kelly at that!

    CB - that's a gorgeous bag!!
     
  11. The bag is really not formal at all with either straps! It's so chic when wore on the shoulder. Give it a try :smile: congratulations

  13. I'd order a matching strap. :smile:
    In my case I was actually able to safe me some money, as we already had a black strap, which I use now for the few occasions, when I wear my kelly cross body. ;) Here´s yesterdays example.

    PS: Love your subtle colour coordination, diamond lover! :yes:

  14. A contrast strap could look weird - but you want casual right? Is that smart/casual or casual/idosyncratic? Whatever you do don't mix the leathers because that does look odd.

    When I got my Kelly within days I ordered a canvas strap ( cost £250 two years ago) so maybe you should go for a matching one now with an option to do something different colour-wise in due course - after all you didn't choose this colour or its hardware. Also experiment with scarves and twillies - it's amazing how much mileage you can get out of one bag.

    I'm the sort or person who makes everything look casual whether I want to or not so I envy you your dilemma!
     
  15. I don't think it is possible for you to wear that Kelly casually. Sorry. You should send it to me immediately!
