Evelyne - Finally got one I love!

Oct 12, 2006
Some of you might have seen my thread a few days ago where I had ordered a potiron clemence Evelyne PM2 from the Atlanta H boutique and I was not happy with the color.

The store was wonderful about it and found a chocolat at another store for me, had it transferred to them, and I received it today. I noticed that they didn't charge me for shipping again, which I thought was quite gracious of them. I'm glad to say that I love this one!:yahoo:

Some of you might find the color boring as it is very dark and the strap matches the bag but I really wanted a more subtle bag. Since it is worn messenger style, it really becomes part of whatever I am wearing. And I didn't want it to overwhelm my clothing. It's a nice, rich color and I added a little twilly for fun.

The Evelyne is a wonderful bag. I was looking specifically for a messenger style to wear when traveling and I have to attend a couple trade shows so I'll be walking the aisles for 8 hours. I need both hands free and this will work perfectly. The (very) wide strap gives a lot of support so the bag is amazingly comfortable. And it holds so much. The extra gusseted pocket really adds some nice storage. I'm also finding it more practical to wear it with the "H" to the inside (pockets to the outside) so I can get to my stuff easier.

Since my post sounds like a review, I might as well give it 5 stars! :P

Isn't the Evelyne the BEST?????? I'm after a chocolate canvas/leather one...I think they're SUCH a fab bag - glad you did the swap, and I don't think chocolate is boring at all........I mean it's BRUNETTE, after all.......!!!

This is such wonderful news! I know how much of a conflict this can be especially when you are having to deal with the phone versus just walking into the store. It is great that you were treated graciously and Hermes like!
