There is nothing quite like a trip to Hermes to brighten a beaten-down-by-end-of-semester-work students' day! SO shipped me off to the store today to purchase a treat for myself At the same time, I wanted to try on a few more bags and try to settle what I would like in terms of my first bag (because, in case you might have read a few of my other back-and-forth posts, I've been struggling with a decision!) I think after a while I succumbed to the popularity of the Birkin. My sister kept nagging me, saying "why would you get anything else?" (she isn't an Hermes shopper). But I was just never as fond of the design as most are, I believe. I finally decided I'd try one on one more time today and that would decide whether or not I could pull off the Birkin. I can't I tried one on and it just doesn't work (a 35cm black one today). I've tried both 30cm and 35cm, and the only one that looks even remotely decent is the 25cm (which is too tiny for regular wear). I think I chalk it up to the fact that my style isn't casual enough. All I ever wear are skirts :s Sure I'd love to have one, most girls would love to have *the* bag! But I won't wear what I can't pull off Maybe one day my style will be more accepting of one. Besides, Hermes has other gorgeous bags! Buuuuuut... I finally tried on a 32cm Kelly today! And I loved it! It was adorable, it looked pretty cute on, and I really liked it. The Kelly and Bolide are tied right now with me. I have those two to think about up until July. I wish they made a 30cm-31cm Kelly, because I felt like the 32cm may have just been a smidgen to large for me, but I would be happy with it. So far, though, the Bolide is still staying on my mind, as every time I try it on, it just seems to work. I fell in love with a Braise croc bearn today, geez it's gorgeous! But it isn't time for croc yet, or I'll have nothing left to look forward to when I'm 30+! Though orange Lizard is looking sooo nice to me right now, in terms of a wallet come fall. Jason was such a sweetheart to pull out so many lovelies for me to see! I finally decided on a lovely piece of Rose Shocking to tide me over until I get my bag Pics of my new GM Diary Cover in Mysore Chevre attached! Yes, I do buy a lot of writing books, but I'm an English major, I am constantly writing, scribbling notes, and making lists, so I like having variety! Hence the two notebook pieces inside this cover, heh. I think their agendas/writing books are my worst weakness. Sorry I had to take them quickly before my batteries died, so they aren't perfect, hehe. OOOH and guess who was in South Park today, for my Charlotte girls! Renee Zellweger! Very cool because it's Charlotte, and we don't seem to get celebs too often. I hope she stopped off to see the lovely SA's at Hermes after I left! I'll post a Charlotte inventory update and some pricings in the appropriate sections in just a lil bit!
