    I finally found the time to do a little reveal from my trip to Paris! I had such a wonderful time.

    So I've been wanting to go to Paris for a while, but wanted to go with someone special. Mr Special wasn't happening, so I decided to make the trip alone! I stayed for a few days and had a lot of activities and shopping planned.

    I walk into my room and when I saw this wonderful view I just knew it was going to be a wonderful trip!

    I won't get into the details of my trip here, so i'll jump straight to my visits to Hermes FSH. The first time I walked in just to look (I was not in the mood to shop). It was lovely, bustling with people and completely overwhelming! I think it was around 5pm on a Friday. Many people leaving with large shopping bags.

    I went in the next morning at around 11 am. I looked around for a few minutes then went to the bag section. A lady brought a (mean looking) male SA who asked me what I was looking for, I said a Kelly 32 gold with GHW and he wrote it on a paper with my name and info. He came back minutes later and said there were no Kellys. I left without buying anything as i was with someone and didn't want to browse.

    I returned back around 2 or 3 pm. I open the door, and feel a sudden sharp pain in my thumb. It looked fine though. One minute later I find it's bleeding and I ask one of the SAs for a napkin. She takes a look and hustles me to the corner where they get out a first aid kit, spray disinfectant on it and apply a band aid! Now I can shop without worrying they say lol.

    After spending time browsing the store I finally head to the bag section where i had to wait a few minutes until a young male SA arrived, and apologized for making me wait. I ask to see a 28 or 32 Kelly just to compare the sizes, as I have never tried either. He brings out one of each for me to try. Now i have always thought a 28 would be too small for me (I am 5'6"), but it was perfect. I then ask the SA if they have any available. He asks if I have a profile with them, and I say no. "So it will be your first time shopping with us!" he exclaims. I say yes, I am so excited I even injured my finger opening the door!

    Anyway, he checks the system, I peek and I see a list of about 4 items, he tells me he has size 32 turquoise and chocolate (and another i forgot), in togo and SHW, and asks if i would be interested in any. I considered the turquoise for a minute, but then decided against it. I asked if he has one in epsom, or other stiff leather. He says he has one... And brings it out to show me.

    Lets just say this was a bag I had never knew I wanted until i laid eyes on it! I decide to take it, and they had it delivered to my hotel.

    Now without further ado...... Here is my beautiful Eucalyptus Kelly 28, in veau grain d'h:

    I am elated! I must say i enjoyed myself the whole time in Paris, and this Kelly was just the icing on the cake. It even looks like its the same colour as the Eiffel tower :lol:
    Best part of the trip? The cutie who sat next to me on the plane to Paris and with whom I had a great time with. We're both back home and still in touch and things are going well. Lets hope I finally bumped into Mr Special! :biggrin:

    That's my story folks, hope it wasn't too boring!
     
  2. Congratulations!!! She's gorgeous and wear in good health!!!
