  1. Hi Ladies - Having a difficult time debating wether I should get a Kelly or a Constance.
    What are the 2016 prices for both and what are your thoughts?
    Also if you have a pic of the Constance please share :smile:
    Thanks in advance!

  3. Depending on your life style. They are both lady like bags but I am a kelly fan. I find it hard to open the Constance.

  4. I would not pick a constance over a kelly! Love the kelly!
  5. They're 2 very different bags. I think it depends on how much you'll carry. I have a constance 24 and kelly 32's. I use the constance if I won't be carrying a lot and I use the kelly to fit a lot of items and for travel
  6. Harder than the Kelly? Could it be?
  7. In my opinion, the Kelly takes a longer time to open if it's all buckled up. I found it very hard to open and close the Constance when I first got it but I got used to the technique after a couple of uses.
  8. Two totally different bags. Each alluring and functional in its own way. Have you tried either? I have each and would probably choose a Kelly for my first H bag....if this is your first. Good luck!
  9. I have both and find the Kelly (mine is a 28) more practical as it has more space than my Constance 24. However, I find that I can easily wear both casually and for dressy occasions and love having both in my collection. If I had to choose, I would go for Kelly first as it holds more. But if you are a light packer, either can work. One thing about the Constance 24 is that you have 2 strap lenghts. I am petite so can wear the Constance cross-body although it hits a little higher but still cute and comfy. Let us know what you decide - good luck with your decision!!

  10. I have both (k32) and I prefer the Constance! My favorite Hermes bag. So easy to wear on the shoulder, plus lightweight. Carries all the essentials, esp in the summertime. I find the Kelly closure more of a juggling act.

  11. I prefer the kelly, however, since you are debating between the two, I'd suggest going into the
    boutique & trying them both to see which one you find more comfortable.

    What are the colors/leathers available to you for both bags as that may narrow down in helping
    you make a decision.

    It does take a little bit of time to get into the kelly for some, I'm used to it now & it doesn't
    bother me because I like the look & the function of the kelly.

    Good luck & let us know what you decide..
  12. I totally agree with ericat! I have both, and I do find myself use the Constance more often. I love the look of Kelly, but it does take a bit time to get in and out the bag. The Constance, on the other hand, is a pretty straight forward bag. Why not tell your SA that you are open to both options, and try them on in person and then decide? ;)
  13. kelly, kelly and kelly. I love Constance, too. if I had to choose will pick kelly
  14. I am in the same boat. I have a K but feel I need another. I am particular about my C. If you can choose see what they offer you and choose what you love. For me the leather and colour will determine which I get. I already turned down one C because it was not for me. Take your time to figure out which you love for the moment. They are both lovely.
  15. This is actually a debate I just had with myself. K vs C ... but I have a K28. I love it to death and think it is the perfect size for me. I want to add diversity to my collection of mostly B30s... so I am hunting the perfect C24. I have turned down 2 so far bc it has to be perfect situation for my first Constance 24... but in your situation I guess the bottom line is it just depends on your collection and how much you carry. Oh and add a smidge of LUCK and AVAILABILITY =)
