Hi Ladies, After months of "lurking" in the Hermes forum ( I am always in the Chanel forum), I will be placing my order tomorrow for my first Hermes handbag. I will be ordering a Birkin, that is settled. What is not yet settled is the size, color and leather. I was thinking a 35, but I don't really need a "tote" size handbag. I am unsure about the smaller size, I don't want to go too small. I think I have settled on the clemence leather, but the color is still up for grabs. Of course i would love to order it in BJ-- but since it is my first and I do want to stay classic, I think I had better go with a more neutral color. I would really like the color to be brown, with some burgundy/red undertones. Any suggestions? I appreciate all of the info I have gained on this forum. The pictures, the color chart and the leather descriptions have been an invaluable resource. It will be an honor to become a member of the "H" club!
