I agonized which bag to purchase first. The Kelly style, which I loooove but then the Birkin Style was starting to call me too. This bag will be for every day usage, so a shoulder bag is a must. They have a Kelly with a strap (and no handle) but didn't have any silver hardware left for that model. The regular Kelly has a strap but I didn't want to use it every day like that- I like it best as a handheld. Then there is a gorgeous tote that I came across, but that is too casual for work. Now I have 3 more things to add to my shopping list. And then the decision on leather.... ush: She is a 24cm in black firm embossed leather (the best for everyday wear) with silver hardware And I couldn't resist a little pochette in red, for pens, lipstick, small papers etc.
