I'm going to Paris for 5 days tomorrow, and am trying to decide which bag to carry. I'm thinking about my 30 swift orange birkin. It's pretty light (especially compared to my 35 clemence and togos), and will hold everything I need for going around during the day. But, orange is not exactly subtle. I'll be wearing a lot of black, but I don't mind the Halloween effect. I'm more concerned about the fact that a birkin is not always easy to carry all day, and cannot go over the shoulder. And, I have a 3 year old, but usually DH carries him or my bag, so that should not be a big problem. Also, what if it rains? But, why leave all my H bags at home when going to chic Paris? It's also my goal to purchase a black box kelly while in Paris. Not sure if carrying an orange birkin will help or not. I was able to order a Birkin at FSH when carrying a gucci (shoulder) bag. But, was not able to purchase a kelly (nor shown any of the back stock) at George V store last week, despite carrying my black birkin. What do you think? Enjoy orange birkin? leave it at home? I'm not really interested in any of my other brand bags...would probably end up carrying old Tod's D bag for shoulder strap... And, one more thing to consider. If I'm able to buy the Kelly onsite, I'll have 2 H bags to bring back to the US, which will complicate travel matters.
