Reporting in from Madrid

  1. Ladies, I'm in Madrid for a long weekend and this report is delivered from my bed at 10:30 am local time, after having gone to bed at 6:30 am (yes, life starts at midnight here!) So apologies for any typos etc, but this is a duty I take seriously no matter how much my feet hurt from an all-nighter!

    Went to the H store yesterday and tried on a gazillion things. The inventory here is incredible, like ten times what we have in London, if not more.

    Among the things I've tried were a large clemence picotin white, medium nero, small white (with blue jean handles), and small etoupe. I adored the medium size and it looked stunning in white for summer and etoupe for all seasons. I only have one H bag at the moment and a picotin will be my third order after my second purchase, which will be another Birkin...or so I thought!...

    I tried on an incredible white swift 35cm Kelly and the bag was totally me. I always saw Kelly as a formalish bag, something I might go for after I turn 40 (which is fairly soon!). But in this leather and size, it is exactly my style, something I can wear day in day out. As gorgeous as white was, I know I wouldn't be able to maintain it, especially the autumn/winter season. The large size made it look perfect for casual use as well and now I am considering ordering it in blue jean or etoupe. Any feedback on the swift leather would be greatly appreciated. This bag was around EUR4200 for price comparison purposes. I will be in Paris from Tuesday and will certainly be reporting in the selection/prices from there too.

    I also tried on a gorgeous 28cm orange Kelly, a 32cm hard leather in gold and a gold 30 and 35cm Birkin (not sure if the Birkins were gold, they were a light brown colour, I'm still catching up). The SA was super impressed I knew the names of the styles though! They also had a fairly large selection of all the other bags, I coud not believe it!

    Anyways, I'll add on anything else I remember a bit later on - need another hour's sleep! Btw, LV is all the rage here, I haven't had any wildlife H sightings, which really pleases me.

    Adios and besitos
     
  2. Yeah Ebruo - have a great time in Spain and muchos gratias for the report. I remember the good ol' days when the nightlife started after midnight and I got to bed a 0630..... now my dear children wake me about then :rolleyes:

    Can't wait to hear about gay Paris......

  4. Do you all understand now why Victoria Beckham has so many Hermès bags?!?!?Love the Madrid store, and the Sa´s and the manager, I rather drive five hours to shop there, than walk 10minutes and go to the store here in Lisbon, such an *******s.
