Hi Ladies, I've been to FSH this afternoon to try to find my dreambag : 35cm Birkin in Black Box with GH Thanks to your all your advices : - I had a precise idea of the bag I want ...but still open minded on size (30 or 35cm) and on leather (box, goat, or Togo or Clemence)...and just to be sure wanted to try a Kelly on me...who knows... - I knew some tips to have a good H experience =>Special Thanks to CXVYR When the SA ask me what I wanted to see, I just said : "I'd love to have a Black Bag. " We begun to look at windows, so I said : "To be honnest I've already made a shortlist...I'm hesitating beetween a Kelly 32or 35cm, a Birkin 30 or 35cm, or a Bolide...in Box because it's my first H, and IMO Box is THE H classic leather ideal to begin with the Brand. " She looked in her computer and told me she could show me some Black Kellys in both sizes, a Black Bolide...but no Birkin. I smiled and said that I'd love to see them. I eliminated quickly the Bolide, saying it wasnt "love at first sight"...In my own I was thinking BEAUTIFUL . Then I tried Kelly in 32 and 35 cm...GORGEOUS but not me ... I said to my SA : "Don't you think Kelly is not at its best on me...it's not me...it looks like if I borrowed the bag...maybe in few years ???" She agreed and told me Birkin would be the best for me. I said "I think you're right...My outfit is maybe too casual...maybe the Birkin would suit me better...but in which size ???" She told me they have a Gold Birkin in 30cm on hold, and I could try it. The 30cm was perfect on me ...but since I couldn't compare, the SA spoted a client with a 35cm and said it would be better for me for a black everyday bag...so I agreed. Then she took a big samples book with all the H leathers in all colours. We took almost ten minuts to compare and guess what...my preferd leather was Box. Then she asked me what type of HW...and I said gold !! Then she told me that if I was ready to be patient, she could order the bag and I'll have it between Sept/Dec. I said I would be pleased to wait few months to have the perfect bag for me. You can't imagine how I was inside !!! So, HOURRAH !!! I have a SO for my dream bag !!! Since I have to be patient I needed a little H goodie to help...and we choose a Bearn Wallet in Fuschia Goat with GH...but since I prefered the small size (because it fits in my Chanel Classic Flap) and wasn't available in Fuschia...my amzing SA will have one for me among the 2 available on the next delivery in few weeks... Sorry for this long post, but I really had to share with you my 1hour and a half of happiness at Hermes !!!
