I LOVE the Evelyne in a bright color but for me, I chose to go with black because the bag doesn't have feet or anything that protects it on the ground...so I knew I would get it dirty. Plus it's my total running around bag, it rubs against my dark jeans all the time, etc - black was just easier.

The most popular size in my store for Evelyne is a PM and I know as it was my first H bag 10 years ago and last week I bought a second one. I went for the PM again as it holds all my daily requirements plus extras. I am 5ft 2". I bought etoupe as I wanted an every day bag that didn't shriek Hermes and the colour goes with everything. Not to dark not too light and it doesn't seem to have a colour transfer problem.

I have 4 Evelynes, gold, etoupe, orange and malachite, I use them all the time, and have never had color transfer on any of them. I have to say though I use the etoupe and the gold the most.

Evelyne will be rubbing against you all the time. If you are a jean lover, consider darker colors to avoid showing color transfer.

I am going to be getting a GM soon. Love the Gold and dark brown. If I really love it going to get some bright colors for next spring/ summer

Bright and pm. I am 5'7 and have a gold pm and it is perfect. The gm seemed to big for me.

PM- I think with kids it's nicer to have a smaller bag once you don't need to tote around a ton of stuff anymore. Makes it a bit easier to run after them! I think a bright color as well, it's not an evening bag that needs to be demure, might as well play up the fun and casual vibe!

i am similar height and i find the difference between pm and gm is minimal lookswise. in terms of space, it depends on what you carry. for me, the gm can fit a macbook air 11" comfortably whilst in the pm it will be poking out. i have both sizes in light colours..and never have any problems with colour transfers or maintenance and i travel everywhere with my evelynes.

perhaps the best choice for you will be a dark bright colour like rouge garrance, rouge H or blue sapphire?

I'm 5'7 with a gold PM. On me I preferred the PM size. My best friend has an Argile GM and does have problems with colored jeans transferring color onto purse. I prefer a neutral bag dressed up with a fun twilly. I change my twilly to match my outfit everyday!!!
