I have to say that I hardly ever use mine, in fact it's only been out a couple of times...although I find it very practical and user friendly, I don't know, I find it a bit "old ladyish"...I think it probably has to do with the fact that here in Rome, lots of over 60's have Bolide look alikes, so I associate it with older women, which has put me off using mine...In fact I was even thinking of selling it.....
Duna, I do see your point, but only with the neutral rigid Bolides. The Mou versions in bright colors are very hip, IMHO!
Shoes, no modeling pics for now but I really don't think the 37 is that much bigger than a 31. Years ago I NEVER would have considered a 37 but w/ two young kids it's a great size. Because of the shape, it's not overpowering at all. On me, it looks smaller than a Birkin 35 or Plume 32 does.
^ She's right. I was always scared of the 37cm Bolide but I tried one on in Rouge Clemence and it seemed WAY smaller than my B 35. It's not as wide and Bulky and the mou leather just sort of folded in on itself. Gorgeous.
I still think the 31cm may be the size for me, though.
I believe they have stuff in the back room, they may not be able to display everything due to lack of space. If you walk into Hermes looking for a Bolide, I'm sure they'll be pleased to help you as I think most customers walk in looking for a Kelly or Birkin I'm waiting for 24 to model hers as I'm thinking of putting that on my wishlist as well.
Hello AirMess (clever ID, BTW), I just read your message. Thank you! I just got back from lunch and figured this is a good time to take a modeling pic since I'm still dressed. I am 5'3" w/ my 2" heels, so I am a shorty, and if I do say so myself I don't think this 37cm Bolide is too overpowering as a day bag!
