  1. Last weekend, my family decided to take a trip to NYC to have some good family time and avoid the DC madness. We had a little celebration Friday night because DS got his 3rd college acceptance letter. He's batting 1000. So we got a late start on Saturday morning. Once we got to the hotel, I went straight to Madison Avenue.

    It was 3:00. I had to be back at the hotel by 5:30 because DCA (Dear Cool Aunt) was picking up DS and DD and taking them to a club for dinner and music. I ventured out into the 16 degree weather for the 2 long/15 short block walk to Hermes. I walked quickly with anticipation, planning out what bags I wanted to see. I also love taking in the New York energy and people watching.

    I thought I wanted a 40 cm Kelly Retourne, something big and slouchy, in a fun, but practical color. I had Raisin, Bleu de Prusse and Rouge H on my mind. I began talking to a SA and she showed me a 35 cm Raisin Togo Kelly with PHW, she thought it was a 40. It was in the price range, but I asked her to see if she had a 40. She brought out a gold togo 40 w/GHW. It was pretty, but I already had purses in the gold range. It was also $9,300. If I am going to spend that much money, I want to get a Birkin! Then a handbag specialist became available, so she began to help me. I explained to her that I was a long time collector and had many bags. She was very helpful.

    She showed me:
    37 cm Kelly So in Blue Jean/GHW (Beautiful!)
    32 cm Kelly So in Bleu de Prusse (LOVED the color, but too small)

    Then she brought out my reveal. Love at first sight. I told her I'd take it. But, I had it sent to my DH's office in DC. I also requested that it be sent on Tuesday for Wednesday delivery. DH came home very late on Wednesday. He teased me all day long saying my adoption from the "Hermes Leather Pound" came in. Did I want him to open it up!!!!

    Then my camera battery ran out of juice. Thursday and Friday were crazy busy days.... So here goes.

  10. There's a story behind the first. When I purchased my first scarf in 1983, I got a scarf book. There was a scarf in it that I'd always admired. I finally got it, but in another colorway. Here's the booklet, pic and 1st reveal.
