Thanks! I was leaning toward Kellys as well since they're so structured and classic. I wish I could see a box leather birkin before making my choice but the SA's at the SF store say they haven't seen a box leather birkin come around in years
Me too - 100%. I have a BBK 35 and on the lookout for more box calf kellys. I find them very elegant, and box calf goes very well with the structured look of the kelly. Keep in mind box calf scratches easily and I tend to throw my birkins around and use them casually, and prefer more hardy leathers for them.
I love then both! I was fortunate enough to get a box Kelly last year, and I absolutely love it! I already have the so black so I know the extra care you need to take. The only thing w the Kelly is that Everytime you open you have the chance to scratch it which will still look beautiful and uniquely yours. You won't go wrong either way. Here is the pic of my Kelly 32
They are both amazing bags. I would only choose the BBB if you are tolerant of scratches. A box Birkin is almost like having a saddle leather Birkin, like barenia - you have to use and patina it. It's a different kind of beauty, a more casual use of box.
Other than that, a B and a K are very different bags.
sfshopgirl, that BBB is a beauty, I spy a rouge interior?! That's a dream!!
