My SA called. I had called him a month ago saying I was looking for a Red bag. Preferably a Kelly or Birkin 35. I got enough courage to call as I have never asked for anything so this was my first "request". I have only been offered a Kelly one time and that was 3 years ago. I didn't take it as it wasn't for me. Well, the SA called me today and said a red had come in. I was so excited he called me (he remembered!) and waited with baited breath. He said it was a red bag in Rouge Grenat? but .. it is a Garden Party 36. Needless to say, I feel conflicted. I've really wanted to add a Hermes Red to my collection, and by all accounts this is a great red, but should I take the GP? I have a Gris T garden party and love it as my summer bag, but not sure if I would like it for a winter-y red? Could be gorgeous. I could take it and then request to be added to a Birkin/Kelly list for an Etoupe or other neutral? Or some other pop of color . Or pass and just wait more. Or just try the reseller route for a red, which is what I usually have done when I want something specific.
