So thankful.
As some of you may know, I've been looking for a job-interview bag recently. Today, I planned to go to the LV shop and pick up a Passy.

Only...I made the fatal mistake of going to the Hermes shop first (they are right across from each other at the mall). I looked at some Evelynes, tried on some 31 cm Bolides, a couple of Kellys...and then the SA brought out an orange box containing a 37 cm Bolide that took my breath away. Whew!

I have to put in a word here about the Atlanta Hermes store. I've heard horror stories about snobby, unhelpful SAs, and I experienced nothing but kindness, patience and humor here -- although I've never purchased anything there before, and even though I was wearing an LV bag, Levi's jeans, and Old Navy shirt, and my bright fuchsia Crocs! (see below)

Anyway, I fell in love with this Bolide, but seriously...it was more than I've spent on a bag before, so I told the SA I was going to take a walk and think about it. DH and I went across to LV, but every bag I picked up in there just made me say, "eh." DH and I sat down in the mall lobby for a little while and talked about it, and he encouraged me to go for the one I truly loved rather than something that was just OK. (Have I mentioned that I have the best DH ever?) The Bolide would be great for a job interview (as me_love_purse wisely suggested), and much more.

So back to the Hermes store we went, and I asked the wonderful SA (Oscar) to bring back "my" Bolide. He brought out the giant orange box, I compared her with a 31 cm Bolide, tried her on a few more times...and finally asked him to wrap her up. I also picked out a twilly to go with her!

Without further ado, here's my 37 cm Mou Ebene Clemence Bolide with PH! Doesn't she look like yummy dark chocolate?




I wasn't kidding about the Crocs...tacky but sooo comfortable!


I'm a happy girl!

Beautiful bag and it looks great on you! I soo love ebene-it goes with everything. My first H bag was a 37 bolide and it's a little tough getting past the sticker shock initially. But, it is the best interview/take to work bag. It is timeless, gorgeous and under the radar. Mine goes to work with me everyday.

ROFL! No, I promise I will dress a little better for the interview!!

hermesgroupie, the china sounds lovely! I just loved the colors in this twilly, and the little white lilies.

PGN, you are right about Ebene, I can't think of a color it wouldn't go with. And also about it being under the radar - that's exactly what I wanted. Even DH commented that there isn't anywhere I couldn't carry this bag.

Thanks EVERYONE for the lovely compliments and congrats!
