Hi Ladies, Firstly, let me introduce myself. I'm Cal and am normally in the Balenciaga forum *waves hello*. I popped over here once before to show off my Hermes bracelet. Anyhoo, I regularly lurk on this forum as I love looking at your beautiful bags. I chat regularly with Perja and we all know her love for Hermes! I think I've been converted, I think I'm ready for my first Hermes bag. I'm currently looking for a shoulder bag in leather, a bigish bag that I can take from day to night. For this reason I've been thinking that a JPG might be the bag for me in Black with Palladium hardware. Can anyone give me any other suggestions? I've read that the JPG is heavy, is there a reason why this is? Is it heavier than a Paddy? Also is this a bag I can find easily and can buy without having a relationship with an SA? And does anyone know the rough retail in ? Does the JPG stay on the shoulder? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm completely new at this and don't have a local store that I can pop into - have to go to Amsterdam. BTW - I'm 5'10 and really need a shoulder bag. Thanks for your help ladies!!! I just love your bags .
