I'm so excited. Dh gave me the green light. Just last week I have decided that I will stop buying Chanel and LV and instead get a fuchsia Kelly bag. Since I have been on a buying spree all year, been bad actually, I was hesitant to ask dh for a Kelly. But looking at all those pics of you ladies with your birkins and kellys made me want one so bad and it is all I have talked about for a week. DH is so good about it though, whenever I start rambling on and on about the kelly (i'm on pf reading about Hermes bags) , he pauses his show on tv, and listens to me, lol. So this weekend, I asked dh to go with me to SF Hermes. I wanted him to look at the bags with me. I didn't see anything in the fuchsia, but I was able to compare the 28cm and 32cm rigide for size. Dh was impressed with the quality and craftmanship of the bags and liked the Kelly rigide style very much. A very wonderful SA was helping me and she patiently explain to me the difference in the leathers and sizes since I am very new to Hermes. She even brought out the gold ostrich 32cm Kelly for me to admire for size in front of the mirror. My, that was lovely We had a pleasant visit at the store and the wonderful SA took my number and said that she will call me when she gets some in. DH and I talked some more this weekend about the Kelly and the size. We both decided that the 28cm rigide Kelly is the best size for me. I'm only 5'0 and petite. I just can't believe how dh warmed up to the idea so fast. Love this man . I thought I was going to have to give up Paris next year for a kelly, lol. We are planning on going to Paris next year to celebrate the big "5 - 0". Now I'm so excited that I get a Kelly and Paris too . So, I hope that you ladies can help me find my fuchsia Kelly. I hope it's okay to post this part. What I'm looking for is a 28cm rigide fuchsia chevre de coromandel Kelly (thanks to La Vanguardia for the info she gave me of her fuchsia Kelly). I know many of the ladies here go to Hermes and know the inventories. Many thanks in advance.
