I am contemplating an orange clemence 30 lindy as my first Hermes bag. I can get a 2008 at a nice discount, but wonder how much use I will get out of it?

I work full time, am in a black suit most days and have lots of black/grey/beige in my wardrobe. Only casual on the weekends. Can I expect to use an orange bag with enough frequency to justify it?

If you carry documents and folders daily, I don;t know if 30 lindy will fit. . . But, if it is shaped kind of like your daily bag, and you love the pop of color, then it would be great!

Have you tried the lindy on IRL? I find the base makes me feel conscious of my hips - but I love do love it on other people.

DiamondS, Irish lass and Loves (and probably lots of other people) have great actions shots of lindy bags.

Hi, I just got a 30cm orange swift lindy. It goes well with office outfits as well as weekend casual. I don't see it'll be any concern to match your wardrobe. I use my 2 H orange scarves to get unusual color combination hints. The style is unique and very understated, which I love. It's best if you can go to H boutique and try it on first.

:tup: H in orange = classic

Even for me, and I am not feeling a colourful bag right now, if I can't get a black, orange or gold will do fine.

i think it depends on your comfort level with the pop of color - i'm like you, i wear a lot of neutral colors at work, so i use my purses to be my "color" - plus, not sure if you're like me, but most of the time, the purse just gets left behind in my office during the day anyway, i don't walk around with it so really the only time i'm seen with it is in the morning coming in and evening going home...

if you like the lindy - an orange one would be great no matter what!

good luck - let us know what you decide!

Orange goes with so much! I didn't realize it until I bought a pair of orange Tory Burch flip flops...I wear them with everything!!! I definitely want to get an orange H bag someday! :girlsigh:
