I was wondering how you ladies who have or are coveting Birkins decide what color, size, and leather you would like? Since we cannot just walk into a H boutique and play with a variety of sizes and colors.... Looking at the leather color swatches are not too helpful since you don't know if you would like the whole bag in that leather/color.....kinda like looking at a little card of color while trying to decide what color to paint your whole room. I've been reading all your posts which have been very helpful however I don't want to miss out on a great color or leather just because I've never seen or felt in it person. I would love to hear how you all were able to narrow your dream bags down to one or two different leathers and colors, was it because you've seen someone else carrying that bag or you've seen a picture of it or you actually lucky enough to come across one in the boutique??? Thanks!
