I haven't been around here long, just a couple of months, but I have been reading so much! I have enjoyed all of the information and the anticipation of new bags so much. My 40th birthday is just around the corner and I decided to take the plunge. I had tried the picotin but it just wasn't me. After a trip to Hermes and hours of looking and talking to others I decided on a Blue Jean Togo 32 Souple Kelly w/palladium HW. It is absolutely gorgeous!! Thanks for letting me share!!
