My goal is to purchase on of these three bags next (I will have to sell a lot of bags and save so it will be a while. I am between the Kelly, Birkin, and Bolide. Here are my pro's/con's Kelly: Pro: shoulder strap, classic look Con: Hard to get in and out of; too formal? Birkin: Pro: The ULTIMATE bag. Love the look and the slouch of the bag Con: No shoulder strap, and price Bolide: Pro: Shoulder strap, opportunity to purchase a Raisin Chevre, easy to get in and out of. Con: It is not a Kelly or Birkin; to stiif of a bag?? To boring? Please advice a newbie!! Curently I only own a Hermes All Leather Garden tote w/twilly. I would so appreciate all of your feedback! Just FYI; I am a SAHM but like to go out on date nights with hubby and carry a beautiful bag.
