Wearing my non-crossbody bag in crossbody style

  1. Just wanted to share. With two little kids, I find myself reaching my crossbody bags more and not wear my non-crossbody bags as much as I'd like to. I was wondering if there was a way to carry my non-crossbody Chanel bags in a crossbody way, and decided to purchase a detachable shoulder strap from a 3rd party company. And Voilà! The quality of the strap is very nice, and looks/feels very natural with my lambskin bag. Now, I am thinking about ordering a leather weaved metal strap extender so that I can wear my E/W flap in a crossbody style.

    The first picture shows the bag without the extra strap, and the rest show the pictures with the extra strap. I keep the extra strap inside the bag and when I need to wear it crossbody, I just hook it to the bag. I love it!

  2. Can you please take pic of how you conect the strap? Looks very nice. I buy extra chain for my LV pochette to wear as cross body too :smile:
  3. Wow, looks great! The strap doesn't even look like it wasn't part of the original design.

    This inspires me to do the same :smile: Mind if I ask which website you used?

  4. +1! This idea is awesome.
  5. monogram,
    I do the same with my LV pochette, too! Here is the picture of the connector. It is very easy to attach it to the chain!

    Here is the website from which I ordered my strap:


    The owner, Lynette, has all kinds of connectors/leather/colors/chains and she can customize your strap to your preference. And she is very quick to respond to emails. I highly recommend her!!

  12. The strap looks like it's part of the purse, thanks for sharing the website!
  13. omg, you posted this with perfect timing for me! I'm about to get a bag that I wish had a shoulder or crossbody strap and I've been trying to brainstorm solutions! I'll check out the website to see if something will work. Thank you!
  14. I agree with everyone. It looks like the bag was originally like that. I love crossbody bags too. Hands free!
  15. Do you all think I could do this with an m/l flap somehow. I love it but I want it cross body with this coat I have.
