i did it. i went to my hermes boutique and bought myself a 35cm VL Gold Kelly. it was simply calling my name as soon as i walked into the store... my goal was to buy a scarf (which i did) and ask about birkins (which i did, but no luck there)...

i've never spent so much on a single item in my entire life, so although i'm loving the new bag, i still feel a little guilt about spending so much... tell me this is worth it. i do love the color and texture.

i was wondering about VL. i was reading other threads regarding the leathers that will help kelly keeps its shape. is VL okay? it was never mentioned as an option. i kinda like that it doesn't look as formal as the smaller kellys.

will this leather hold up with the kelly?

Congratulations!! For me, the Kelly is the ultimate bag, although different leathers and sizes (and colors, for that matter) can certainly make two Kelly's look quite different. Did you try on any 32 or 28s before deciding on the 35?

thank you ladies! you've made me feel better... i took my one and only daughter (who's 2 and a half) to the boutique, praying she would behave and not touch anything (luckily it's a small boutique, so if there was any misbehaving, i had a quick getaway)... anyway, the SA was very kind to my girl, and she cutely asked my daughter if she likes mommy's stuff... which my daughter does... and i thought about it that the investment in this bag i can hopefully pass on to her, and that made me feel a little better but... we'll see what the future holds!!

i haven't opened my box yet... it's sitting downstairs in my storage room waiting to be opened with my scarf box. i'm waiting for the right moment, when i'm totally relaxed to do it... once i do, i'll post pics.

i'm done for a few months now. my next search will be a birkin of course to add to my 31cm trim and my 35cm kelly. so crazy for me to say that i have two hermes bags!!

hey ms. twilly, i saw a 25 and a 28 earlier in the summer but the sizes didnt work for me. i went with the 35 b/c while i carry basics, there are times when i need to throw in my kids toy cars or a book, and the 35 seemed to work.
