hey fellow tpfers... a few months ago i posted that my mom was thinking about getting a birkin at some point. i have a 35 cm black epsom with gold HW and she would like to get a 30 cm...we would share the cost. my mom says she'll only get ONE birkin and so it's gotta be a classic. she's seen the kelly and though she thinks it's nice, she isn't interested in the style. she likes the ease and comfort of the birkin for carrying stuff around and getting into it easily. initially we thought gold would be a nice second bag. but mom was debating getting a black 30 cm with GH probably in togo since it's lower maintenance and it's a total classic... and again she only wants one birkin and the 35 is too big for her. the issue is...is it weird for her to get a 30 cm black birkin with GH if i have a 35 cm black birkin with GH? she said she'd consider gold but i'd hate for her not to be happy with her bag since they do cost quite a bit. any thoughts, advice would be greatly appreciated!
