My first Hermes bag ... and thank you!

  1. Hi all

    I've been a lurker in the past, having only been a Hermes scarf collector before. But, we all grow and the leather lust has taken me recently. After losing last year's bonus to a tax bill I resolved that this year I would either blow the cash on a bag or go to the Paris sale - or both!

    Anyway, having originally been attracted by an orange picotin then seeing the Lindy (all pictures, I hadn't opened the cases at the boutique yet) I finally resolved to visit the store and play. In the meantime an acquaintance offered me the chance to buy her Kelly and, after visiting the store, browsing the leather books and trying the bags, I knew that the Kelly was the bag I wanted. That's where you guys came in!

    The amount of information on colours, sizes, styles and leathers, backed up with so many photographs, was what really made the final decision easier. And as of yesterday I am the proud owner of a 32cm Kelly in raisin Clemence! WooHoo! and thank you!

  8. Hi

    Yes indeed it is - I will never look as good as the bag does! Not the best pic (daylight fading etc.) but I needed to take one right away to preserve the post-box-opening moment...

  13. sus- me too. had them my entire life. mostly seal points but one blue point. she was nucking futs. now my mom and brother both have seal points from the same breeder as mine so they're all related.
