Nikki - omg. I delayed opening this thread because I knew I would be totally sunk. If it had a cross body strap I would have bought every single colour. I just have to look through my shoulder strap only bags and try to figure out if I could make it work.
Sally - do you have any other straps you could swap? Oh but I see that the hardware is gunmetal - otherwise I think you could have subbed in an Abaco strap. If you liked black I'd say you could try straps from the Fantasia bags.
