After seeing everyone's new birkins, I just can't take it anymore! So, I called my SA at NM to find out if I can get on the waitlist for a Birkin. But I have some questions since I am a total novice! When you got on the waitlist, did you request more than one color/hardware combo? And do you usually get exactly what you waitlisted for, or something close (ie. leather type variations etc.) I am really torn between a few colors, and I think I am leaning towards a 30cm or 35cm Chocolate/cocoan (especially after seeing HermessBBB gorgeous bicolor)! Does anyone have some suggestions about the type of leather they recommend for the chocolate? Also debating Gold, Blue Jean, Thalassa and Cyclamen. I think my first choice is the chocolate because it will go with more of my wardrobe, but debating between togo, box and chevre- but WELCOME ANY SUGGESTIONS! I want it to be versatile and durable, but gorgeous at the same time. Also, what size do you recommend if I am only 5'1"? Thanks for any input or advice that you might have ladies!
