I don't know if it's just me but I don't find them appealing! It looks like a piece of plastic to me. I have seen them in so many colors and I just don't like them. I do like them for agendas and wallets but for a Birkin or a Kelly or any other bag I don't know. I was at Hermes today with my husband (trying for the impossible while my husband was flirting with the sales reps!) And hey had a 28cm Poitrion Lizard Kelly and it felt like plastic to me. What's your girls thoughts on this? Oh yes my only purchase was a scarf and some deodorant and bath gel and my hubby purchased a pair of shoes! Shoes! Shoes!!!!! He's never going to wear them!!!! I can't get him to buy shoes but a Hermes rep sure can!
