Hi

Does anyone have comparison modelling pictures of a 32 Kelly vs 35 Kelly on someone who is about 5' 9"?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks so much!

Luccibag could I trouble you for photos of both the retourne and the sellier?

Thanks again, you are so sweet!

My two fave sizes :flowers:

32 Sellier Rouge H Kelly PHW

35 Retourne Barenia Kelly BrushedHW

I'm about 5'9" and 140lbs-ish

HTH!

(Ok, LOL, I have no idea why the Barenia ones are sideways, they are normal on my computer, sorry!)

Aww, thanks Stimpy! Hope you find what you are looking for :flowers:

I was terrified if the 35 would be too big, but in the retourne I find myself reaching for the Barenia the most. Such a great bag. The 32 sellier and 35 retourne feel similar "size wise", but jmho.

Thanks! I'm thinking of getting my first one (wish me luck!) but was just not sure whether a 32 or a 35 would look better on me. :biggrin:

Great post OP!

luccibag, do you find that the kelly looks better in a rigide or retourne? I'm leaning towards a box leather but when I look at the vintage box kellys, I'm not to sure I want it to be less than stiff/rigid especially along the sides, kwim?

Mimster, hmm I dont know. I like both (that's because I love structured bags so rigide is great for me). Rigide bags I always worry Im going to bang them up for some reason. But they do look great. Not as casual as the retournes though.

pug shoes - I think these may be the first modeling pics I have seen from you. You look fantastic with your kelly's and may I add, as adorable as your pug!

Lucci - I never get tired of seeing you with your kelly's.

For all of you 5'9", you could rock both a 32 sellier or a 35 retourne imho. It all depends on the look you are aiming for. Sellier is dressier than the cool casual retourne. How I wish I was as tall as you girls!
