Those are so different. The whitebus is handheld and much more formal. I guess it depends on your wardrobe and lifestyle. Between the two, I prefer the whitebus, but would not use it as an everyday bag. The Evelyn does not work for me.
Lets say...my hands are itching for a everyday H bag (im still waiting for medor and cdc in parchment). I emailed my very nice SA for the colors i like (orange, potiron, raisin). Is He Bop a good casual bag?
im such a tomboy...i felt i cant carry the bag (but shopmom carry them with jeans thou and looks very fab!) its functional with the strap. im considering that as an evening bag in a 20cm, but i will have the clutch for that....
hhmmm....dh always say to get the famous style of a brand instead of spending on 'irrelevant' things. its his way of saying...spend wisely.
the Kelly retourne gets literally turned inside out during the process and the seams are on the inside.
The Kelly sellier does not get turned and has the seams on the outside, giving it a bit of a more 'formal' appearance. In general, sellier Kellys keep their shape better. However, the 'slouching' is often an effect that is desired by the owner. To each his own
i think everyone has a different definition of what an "everyday" bag means. for me, it's something that is big enough to carry whatever i need on any given day (so papers, water, baby stuff, etc) and can be worn over the shoulder. so while i agree that a kelly can be worn everyday, it doesn't work as an everyday bag for me. i lean toward shoulder totes to fill my everyday needs. i find the whitebus a little big and boxy for my taste and it can only be hand carried. if you're looking for a tote, try the victoria -- it's lovely (pic courtesy of my peko):
