My "Pre" HAC...Evelyne PM Rouge Garance


Apr 11, 2006
Im starting 2007 with a Hermes Evelyn PM bag in Rouge Garance.

I went to Hermes Boutique with my Best Friend to give my SA a Xmas gift and also ask my wonderful SA for the Rouge H Evelyn GM. It was unavailable at that time and wanted to order it from other stores. She then suggest the Evelyn Rouge Garance PM because the Rouge H Evelyne GM2 would be too big for 5'4 frame like me and it's better to get the PM one...AND I can take it "Home" with me. I said, Sure..I think the Rouge Garance is a bit "Corally- Red"..but..I'll check it out. My SA pleasantly looked at me about my "Knowledge" of Hermes colors and went to the back. Meanwhile..My BFF and I were looking around..I saw a few Bolides, Evelyne PM in Vert Anis, Croc Birkin 40 or 50 Noir. She came out with a "Sealed" Box and opened the Rouge Garance Evelyn PM and WHAT A BEAUTY it was!!! The color is PERFECT. A combination of Coral and Red..not too flashy or bright....Perfection!! The size is just right and I knew I had to have it.

As she prepare to finish the transaction, putting it in that "Orange Box" complete with ribbons and bag..My SA and I started talking about my HAC 36cm OR Birkin 35cm order that she currently put me on the list. (Graphite w/ Ruthenium HW OR Potiron w/Gold HW)....She looked and "HINTED" to my Best Friend while pointing at me (I was BUSY counting my cash for payment!!!)
that "He's GETTING A BIRKIN". I thought I heard what she said and HAD to ask my Best Friend (when she turned to the register, whispering..!) "What did she say????"..she did say "You're getting a Birkin"!!!I got excited and still kept my composure. As my Wonderful SA gave me the BIG orange bag...she said...See you in 2007!!! Hugs and off our way!! I tell was a fabulous feeling leaving that Hermes store with the huge Orange bag and Imaging myself leaving the Boutique again..sometime in 2007 with a Birkin!!!

I hope I'd have a properous New Year 2007!!

To all my Pfers...Guys and girls..HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2007!!!
May ALL your Birkin wish come true in 2007 (K)

Thanks Ladies and Gentlemen!!! Appreciate the input. I wont officially use it until spring 2007. (That's the time where I break out my "New" Bags)

The straps is a bit short for me..but, I can carry it off my shoulders. It didn't look well "Across" my chest, messenger style..It falls just right above my waist. I think the straps on the Evelyns are short, Anyhow..I love it.
It's a Hands-Free bag!!!. I did wish the straps are a bit longer..but I have other messenger bags I can carry (Balenciaga)

luvurbag, what a great day for you ( and your best friend!) your Evelyne is really pretty. That gorgeous Rouge will go with so many things. And, in addition to your lovely purchase, you're getting a Birkin!!

Congratulations! I enjoyed your post.
