  1. Hello!

    So my next bag will be a Bolide, favored this over a So Kelly 22.

    I'm 45, 5'2", dresses casually - jeans, wedge heels or flats & a pretty top, cardi. a bit on the chubby side at size 8 banana rep or large at mango / zara.

    So what bolide would suit me?

    For the color i think i'll go red this time as my collection consists of grays & navys.

    I have a vert bengale rivale and was thinking a bolide in this color but right now the rivale isn't matching any of my outfits. weird as i wear mostly navys, whites, grays. maybe i'm just not used to green accessories.

    anyways, for the rigide i feel it might be too stiff but i like that the bag doesn't flop down over the stuff inside.

    for the mou i feel the shape would get kinda distorted when it's put down.

    My H bags are the ff:

    BJ plume 28
    32 Kelly gold
    Prune GM3 Evelyne
    Chocolate Birkin 30
    34 Lindy Etoupe

    1 have 2 balenciagas in gray
    1 prada in teal
    1 chanel flap in navy

    i have also been to the bolide thread and want a fresh perspective.

    thanks so much!
     
  2. 37 mou beats hands down, however u could also try the 35cm size.
     
  3. thanks for reminding me about the 35, rains. I totally forgot about that!
     
  4. For me no question -- 37 mou
     
  5. thank you, Sbelle!
     
  6. I chose a 37 Bolide in fjord (rigide) and I'm very happy with it. I'm 5'4" and it doesn't feel like a big bag at all. Even though mou seems popular on tpf, I just didn't want a Bolide that collapsed or flopped over when it was unstuffed. Easier to get things in and out of rigide Bolides IMO. Plus many of my other H bags are soft slouchy clemence, so my Bolide is my more-structured and slightly dressier alternative.
     

  7. Thanks, Cosmopolitan.

    i do like the look of the rigide but i find it might be too formal for my semi casual style.

    Is the fjord lighter than clemence?
     
  8. I am 5'5 and I love my 31 mou. I like to lug it on my shoulder hence a larger size might be a bit too heavy for me. It is my everyday bag in winter -easy access, roomy and smooshy clemence.
     
  9. thanks npoo!
     
  10. I think the fact that mine's fjord (a big grainy rugged-looking leather) keeps it from looking too formal, as it would in box leather or some other smooth leather.
     
  11. bailey-lab, I want your 32 kelly. It is next on my list. :cool:
     
  12. thank you, Cosmopolitan!
     

  13. thanks Npoo! hope you'll get yours soon!
     
  14. I also chose a black fjord 37. To me, it's in between rigide and mou. It stands up straight and shows off the beautiful bolide shape, but it remains pliable, and I easily get in and out of it and stuff it. It's nowhere near as formal as box, liegee, or chevre. Rouge H in fjord is STUNNING. Best of luck.
     
  15. thanks BlackBirkin40! i heard that fjord has been discontinued :sad:

    but thanks for the info!
