Hi all, Let me start by saying I've spent a few days searching all 34 of the etoupe-related threads, as well as 'hardware dilemma' threads. And I still need guidance! I am hoping to purchase an etoupe picotin GM in the next couple of weeks (this will be a super casual everyday bag...I am 5'11). I have spent some time with the SA working through leathers for my first Birkin order from the store. (Also etoupe - multiple purchases in same colour/leather is a whole other thread!) The store only had an etoupe lindy in SWIFT, which happened to have GH, which looked great. But I want clemence. I have seen LuxChic's stunning photo of her 35 etoupe GH bag; everything else seems to be PH. I like the look from the photos, but it is a different look - cooler, almost lighter? * * * Does anyone have more recent or other photos they could share of clemence/GH etoupe? LuxChic, do you have any other photos/actions shots etc. that you could share? Here is my particular dilemma: I consider myself a "gold" person, and I already have 2 vintage Birkins (barenia 35, vache naturelle HAC 32) and 1 Kelly (rouge H 35) with GH. However, I just received a large/heavy chaine d'ancre SILVER necklace for my anniversary - and I absolutely live in it. I wear it all the time, and I love how it looks against my skin. When I've been wearing it, I have tried to "match" with other silver (or at least, avoid gold HW) - leading me to believe that I am one of those people who likes to match HW and jewellery. Part of me thinks I should branch out and try palladium, which will go really well with my necklace - but then, from LuxChic's photo (and even the swift lindy at the store), I do love the darker, warmer tone etoupe seems to take with gold. Help!
