I'm sitting on the fence right now... Two Mondays ago I did an impulse buy and got a Bleu Brighton 31cm Bolide in Chevre in the Chicago H. When I took it out of the box back at the hotel, I was a little shocked to see that the hardware was gold (yes, I'm old and need to gouge out my eyes--but everything had been wrapped, and all I saw in the store was the zipper pull and the handle rings, which hadn't looked gold to me in the store). So when I got home, Fesdu and I took it to one of our H stores to get store credit. The SA said he couldn't (wouldn't) do it. We left, both of us a little upset. Next morning, I ran it to our other H store across town, and the SA showed me a couple of Bolides, none of which I liked, and then she gave me store credit, promising to call me after she did a search for some different Bolides. She called about an hour ago: Etoupe 37cm Clemence Bolide. I like a variety of colors and already have an etoupe Evelyne, so that's one of the reasons why I'm on the fence... The other reason (and here, a confession) is that I really don't have a strong feeling for Bolide. It just doesn't make me feel the way Evelyne, Birkin, and Kelly make me feel. Help, ladies!!! Do you think that if I got the Bolide I will fall in love with it in time? I know there's quite a coterie of Bolide lovers here so I need to hear from you guys!!!
