Hi Ladies , I'm a little bit impressed : it's my first post in the Hermes Forum:shame: ... I"m 33 years old, I'm living in Paris, and I'm completely crazy for bags. My addiction begun with LV Epi, then (and still Balenciaga) ... and now I've planned to offer me for christmas one of my 2 dream bags ...A Chanel Classic Flap or...a Hermes !!! I've done some research on the Hermes library (so rich, thanks Ladies for sharing your knowledge ), and I think I almost find my Hermes dream bag.... But could you help me just to be sure ???? I think I would love to have : 1) A birkin : because I could use it as tote and shoulder bag ???(impossible with a souple Kelly) ??? 2) 35 cm : perfect medium size for an everyday bag ??? 3) Black ...or maybe gold ??? 4) Togo : the most durable leather (scratchproof) ???? 5) Hardware : palladium for black (and Gold for gold) ???? And of course, if you have an idea of the price... Thanks for your help ladies !!!
