OK, so I was thinking of an evelyne & fell in love with a Kelly. Now, I'll have to start saving, though I can get an order in for july & have it by early '08. I tried a 28cm & it looked great (I'm 5' only). I did not get to see a 32, which I would love to do. I think I prefer the sellier style. Right now, I'm thinking black. I did read the leather book in the reference section, but still have a couple of questions. Which type of leather is the most resilient & would still look good in this style? I'm guessing not clemence, though "sturdy" it wouldn't look right in the sellier style? The one I tried on was chevre, which I liked but I wasn't sure of its durability. I have 2 little ones & live in a climate where there's rain & snow!! TIA for any tips.
