Etoupe is a great neutral bag!! If you are deciding between your SO and etoupe, then I say wait for your SO because your other bags are pretty neutral already. But if you are thinking of something else besides your SO, then etoupe is a great choice!!!
I'm definately going with my SO. I was wondering if I should take etoupe in addition? As for 35cm, at 5' tall, I find that 30cm fits me better. I think one 35cm, my black togo, is enough. Somehow, I think tabac camel is a warm neutral, and etoupe in togo is a cool neutral??
If you can take both etoupe and SO,you should add etoupe,it's a marvellous color which change with lights.
Have you seen this Birkin on reality?It's not only a question of colour,the grain, of leather,its softness,is important too,I'm sure you'll know immediatly what to do,when you'll have her in hands.
My "dream bags" are birkins in black, etoupe and natural barenia (I also love tabac camel but the colour doesn't love me back) so I think that etoupe would be a perfect addition to your collection. Your tabac camel and natural barenia birkins are both 30 cm so I would wait for an etoupe 35 cm birkin.
As you wrote that you prefer 30 cm, then go for this one.
Go for it!! Earlier this week I almost bought this one neutral color Birkin (sorry, forgot the color bc it's a new one) that's a bit lighter than Etoupe, but passed up on it bc it was a 35. I'm only 5' as well, so I think 30 fits me best, too. You should grab it quick!! BTW, you have a very nice collection!!
I prefer 30 too I literally cannot handle the weight of a 35~~~ I have seen 30 togo etoupe w/ phw IRL so it's very true that it does change with different lighting. Very versatile. Definitely a year round color~~
Ok, confession time - my SA told me that my SO for an etoupe w/ rose shocking lining has been accepted so my opinion is definitely biased!!!
Intersting Costa. I have a T-C and went for a Prune 30 and a BJ 25 as I was thinking Etoupe too similar in color. I will have to look at Etoupe again.
I guess it is best to go in a look at it and see if it MOVES you!
