I have just been to put my name on the Birkin List. After reading lots from the reference library and asking lots of questions (thank you allaboutnice!) I had decided on my favourite colour and leather. So with a spring in my step I head into the shop, only to be told that I cant have the colour I want in the leather I want. I want bleu brighton and it only comes in clemence and I wanted a stiffer leather. (Am sure more seasoned buyers than me know this immediately!!!) So after some thought - much to the impatience of the SA - I maje a second choice, a gold togo. Now I am sure my second choice will be wonderful, but I am haunted by the fact that I am IN LOVE with Brighton Blue. So do I go for my fave colour or the best leather? Help anyone?
