I am afraid to carry my rouge birkin to the boutique because they knew I wanted a birkin badly and was on the waiting list there. I just got my gold one from them, so maybe now I won't be afraid. It just feels like cheating on my SA right now.
pyrexia ... I do not know the nature of your relationship with your new SA at H but I would not be too quick to spill the beans, KWIM? SAs expect to see walk-ins going into the store to show their H bags, and try to have their bags authenticated. And trust me, they have the patience of saints ... waiting to be proven right almost every time.
