Sarah-girl & I met up today at Hermes in Chicago. She is so unbelievably sweet, great to be around & very knowledgable on leathers/colors. Without giving out TMI, an odd & interesting thing that we just learned is that her father was my dh's supervisor for 6 months a long time ago! We had a great time looking at leathers, playing with the gorgeous scarves & bags. They had a 35cm Black Box Kelly with Palladium hardware that I was soooooo tempted by. Also a Chartruese Kelly in 32cm, Havane 32cm Kelly in Evercalf, Poitoron/Orange 32cm Kelly in Epsom. I ended up getting a new scarf (see pic below) for my Sapphire Bag, some sachets & an un jardin twilly. My SA was so great to my 6 year old DD. She gave her a little Hermes box with a perfume bottle necklace (which she is still wearing & has been talking about non-stop since!) My only complaint is that I didn't have more time with Sarah! I didn't get any pics with her but I have one with my dd Hannah and I on Michigan Ave.
