I'm back for FSH...and OMG !!!!!!!!!!

  1. Hi Ladies,

    I've been to FSH this afternoon to try to find my dreambag :
    35cm Birkin in Black Box with GH:love:

    Thanks to your all your advices :
    - I had a precise idea of the bag I want ...but still open minded on size (30 or 35cm) and on leather (box, goat, or Togo or Clemence)...and just to be sure wanted to try a Kelly on me...who knows...
    - I knew some tips to have a good H experience =>Special Thanks to CXVYR:love:

    When the SA ask me what I wanted to see, I just said :
    "I'd love to have a Black Bag. "

    We begun to look at windows, so I said :
    "To be honnest I've already made a shortlist...I'm hesitating beetween a Kelly 32or 35cm, a Birkin 30 or 35cm, or a Bolide...in Box because it's my first H, and IMO Box is THE H classic leather ideal to begin with the Brand.:p "

    She looked in her computer and told me she could show me some Black Kellys in both sizes, a Black Bolide...but no Birkin.
    I smiled and said that I'd love to see them.

    I eliminated quickly the Bolide, saying it wasnt "love at first sight"...In my own I was thinking BEAUTIFUL:love: .

    Then I tried Kelly in 32 and 35 cm...GORGEOUS but not me ...
    I said to my SA : "Don't you think Kelly is not at its best on me...it's not me...it looks like if I borrowed the bag...maybe in few years ???"

    She agreed and told me Birkin would be the best for me.
    I said "I think you're right...My outfit is maybe too casual...maybe the Birkin would suit me better...but in which size ???"

    She told me they have a Gold Birkin in 30cm on hold, and I could try it.
    The 30cm was perfect on me ...but since I couldn't compare, the SA spoted a client with a 35cm and said it would be better for me for a black everyday bag...so I agreed.

    Then she took a big samples book with all the H leathers in all colours.
    We took almost ten minuts to compare and guess what...my preferd leather was Box. Then she asked me what type of HW...and I said gold !!
    Then she told me that if I was ready to be patient, she could order the bag and I'll have it between Sept/Dec.
    I said I would be pleased to wait few months to have the perfect bag for me.
    You can't imagine how I was:yahoo: inside !!!
    So, HOURRAH !!! I have a SO for my dream bag !!!
    Since I have to be patient I needed a little H goodie to help...and we choose a Bearn Wallet in Fuschia Goat with GH...but since I prefered the small size (because it fits in my Chanel Classic Flap) and wasn't available in Fuschia...my amzing SA will have one for me among the 2 available on the next delivery in few weeks...

    Sorry for this long post, but I really had to share with you my 1hour and a half of happiness at Hermes !!!
