It's funny, even before Tulips thread about how we wera our Birkins, I have been wondering about the Kelly. There are so many Kelly lovers on this forum. Even in the basic leathers, the bag seems so sophisticated and slightly dressy. So I'm wondering, do most of you Kelly fans who carry yours regularly live in larger metrolpoliatan areas where people dress up more as a matter of course? Or perhaps in an affluent suburb of a large city? Do you close the turn lock and straps every time? Do you ever use the shoulder strap? Ever since S'Mom's pic of her wearing her vert olive Kelly with jeans,I have been thinking about this bag! Thanks for your thoughts!
