HELP! I've been craving an H bag for what seems like forever. I've been browsing this forum for months trying to learn all I can about color, styles, and leather, for which I thank you. You guys know EVERYTHING! This is a pretty seldom purchase for me, so I'm really analyzing/agonizing over this. I've always bought lots of scarves, but have avoided tempting myself with purses. I could use help/advice, especially about leathers and styles. These are my limitations: 1. I'm nearly 6 ft in flats, so tiny bags look silly, but large bags really hurt my back. I rarely carry bags as large as the 35 cm birkin unless I absolutely have to for travel. 2. I'm a part-time antique dealer with generally very rich clients, many of them carrying kellys and birkins. The sad reality is that some of them would probably be a little miffed if I had a bag as recognizably expensive as theirs. I could actually lose clients over it. For the sake of my little business and my business partner, I need to go with something less immediately identifiable. 3. I love box calf leather, but I live in a tropical climate. We get unexpected rainstorms, and they're frequently heavy. I read on the forum that box calf will blister if it isn't wiped off. Does anyone know how quickly blistering would happen? Exactly how obsessive-compulsive would I have to be to take reasonably decent care of box calf? Is there another option for a smooth surface that would be easier care-wise? In the last week, I've been in 3 different Hermes boutiques, and I find myself more confused than ever. If anyone has suggestions or opinions, I'd love to hear them. I really don't want to go back and keep mumbling "I don't know" everytime a SA asks what color, style, or leather I want. It makes me feel like an idiot. TIA!
