I am away from home, at an conference at which I am getting an award. I am really happy about the award but kind of missing being able to go to the new Hermes store in the Financial District, which is opening this week (yes I know, this is really perverse). Ok here's where I need to get a grip: after checking into the hotel, I went to the local Hermes and saw a 28 cm, blue jean togo retourne kelly bag with palladium hardware. It was really hard to walk out of the store without it but - I live in NY, I think I would feel a little silly with a bright blue bag. If it had been black or brown, I would not have hesitated. Unfortunately I am still thinking about it - I need to put this out of my mind, I am waiting for a black one (which is taking forever, by the way). I would feel really silly if a black one materialized next week and I had bought this one. I think. Please talk some sense into me.
