    Default My First Nikki

    Ok, ok, ok. I'v actually had two Nikkis in my possession before (Wine, Gray) but since i had Wine and Gray bags from RM already, I didn't use them and let them go. Besides, Im not much of a big bag type of chick; I prefer a smaller size satchel (like the MAM, lol). In short, I've never had a Nikki that I really considered keeping/owning...until...this one!
    Anyhoo, I got this recently and am wowed. Look at the gooey, smooshed out, buttery, dreamy, wonderful, fantastic, incredible, AWESOME leather!

    Oh and I also love the hardware; just like how it used to be but in a polished gold tone, alongside the inscribed RM enclosures.

    The interior is soft, touchable and feels like a dream!

    My only qualm? I dont know how to get used to it! Its so big and "bottomless pit" like. Anytime, I would want to get something out, I would have to like fold the flap up, unsnap the magnet and hold apart the sides of the bag while I fish around for my wallet, for example. How do you gals "do" big bags? Any advice?

    Is that the Chocolate? If it is, it is by far the best leather I have gotten this season, but it seems to scratch a bit easily. Anyway, I think this bag can be pulled off by anyone (i.e. I'm a very short kid and it works great, looks good) and is versatile in the way it seems to work as a dressy or casual bag. I personally don't snap my Nikkis shut. I don't fold the flap over. I just let them fall where they fall. You do have to fish around sometimes to find something, but it's just one of the sacrifices for fashion!

    That is a gorgeous bag!!!
    One thing I do with my larger bags is have everything in smaller bags (cosmetics, wallet, pen and pencil bag). That way I'm not hunting for things.

    I love it Gung. I'd love to get a Nikki but am unsure as I don't like huge bags.
    Do you know how this size compares to the mini Nikki?

    Nope, no Chocolate Nikki for me. I have a Navy and Wine...both are a bit stiff. You should at least have an easier time carrying the Chocolate since it's nice and smooshy.

    Gung - Its Lovely!! I actually wanted to ask you if there was a reason why you chose a Nikki instead of a Mini Nikki?? Just thought because you prefer MAM to MAB that you'd do the same with a Nikki... Just wondering cause I'm pondering getting one myself... So many swear by them... Would like to try one out myself....

    IMO, the Nikki is a heck of a lot different from the Mini Nikki, not only in terms of capacity but also in terms of slouch factor, thus giving it an overall different look.

    Oooh, Navy and Wine are gorgeous colors! Those are perfect colors to have in a Nikki.

    Yes, I much prefer the regular Nikki over the Mini Nikki. I do prefer the MAM over the MAB because I feel the size gives it a cleaner and more classic shape. Sometimes with the MAB, the bags can look/feel droopy or slouchy, which is fine, but I prefer a more structured shape in a satchel. However, for the Nikki (and this is just my opinion!!!), a lot of the bag's appeal lies in the drapy/slouchy nature of the bag. If you read advertisements for the Nikki, often times you will hear things like "carefree", "comfortable", "slouchy" and things of that nature. The mini Nikki on the other hand is the same bag of course, just scaled down, but because of the scaled down effect, a lot of the drapiness/slouchiness is lost...and ultimately for me, a lot of the appeal is lost as well.
