I just check out the Hermes thread for scarves, because I've started to wear neck scarves to work and now I'm thinking that a black Kelly would be a great investment. Timeless and elegant. I can't think of another design that has more staying power. I'm a smaller purse girl, so I think a Birkin would be too big for me, i.e. I'm ordering a Medium YSL Muse, rather than the Large or XL. Hmmm, what's the best leather to get the Kelly in? And its about 6k retail? Worth the savings to get one used? I'm pretty eBay paranoid lately. Is there a waiting list usually on these? I wouldn't want to buy it until my raise either this fall or in the spring (not sure when its coming, but its coming). I don't want to use my savings, I'd rather save up for it separately. Ok tell me how much you love your Kellys! And do people really notice? I'm in DC, so I think people would. Although I've only seen one Birkin in my neighborhood.
