I need some opinions here. I love my speedy, but I need both my arms to shop...how stupid would it look if I bought a strap for the speedy??? I dont really see anyone using them...but Im a rebel and dont care what others do, but on the other hand...I dont want to look weird using one. Any opinion on this subject...quickly...because I am going to my LV store tomorrow to plop down $180.00 for a strap....(I think)..:weird:

I think the bag is a little oddly shaped and bulky/heavy to hang from a long strap. IMO it looks a bit like a rock on a string. I've seen a few women do it, but it wasn't working. I think it could be done, though, so maybe you're just the one to do it!

i wouldn't do it, an LV SA and i had a convo the other day about how tragic it was to see speedys and almas with those straps...maybe there's another bag you could use for shopping? or put the speedy in the crook of your elbow?

hm... i haven't personally seen anyone using it that way... but i know that some ppl do. i dont think the idea's weird at all tho, the balenciaga bag's famous of having the option of being handheld and shoulder carried.

I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're in luck! I have the strap (non-adjustable vachetta one) and speedy 25. The bad news is I'm in my pajamas...hehe...so not sure if you could picture it on a normal outfit.

My opinion is that it is very awkward looking. I rarely use it with the speedy (unless I'm at the airport). Also, I'm 5'4" so the bag sits waay below my hip. You might want to consider the adjustable shoulder strap.
