Hello ladies and gentlemen!! I'm having a huge dilemma. Some of you saw my post in late January about my FIRST visit to H! Well.....the lovely SA I worked with just called and offered me a RC B40 in Togo with PHW! Yet, I'm absolutely torn! I currently have a B40 in Tosca and a B35 in Geranium and am wondering if the RC might be too similar to the Geranium? I searched the forum and someone described the RC as a "candy apple" & the color looked lovely...just wondering if I'm too much in the pink/red family with my B's? Also my Tosca B40 is such a neutral color (not a pop)...a little scared about the RC in size 40. Honestly, I'm just so confused! I'm 5 hours away so I can't just go pop in and take a look......but this IS the first B I've been offered from the H boutique and am worried about turning it down.....any advice would be so appreciated!!

I have RC and had geranium.

I really think RC especially in togo/clemence is going to be way too loud in a 40! RC in epsom is a bit more tolerable in a larger size.

On top of that, you already have geranium and tosca. If it were me, I would pass.

Don't worry, they will offer you another soon!

I would pass too with no worries. I passed on my first birkin offer and a number since then. I still get offers. Looks as if they like you.

I would pass as it is too similar to Geranium, and 3 bags in reddish/pink is a lot! Unless you are obsessed with that color family.

I do find myself being draw to all the pinks/reds of the H family. I've found myself avoiding any darker colors. I'm thinking about heading up to ATL and taking a look at it tomorrow. My friend is on board for my road trip so I'm thinking we might head up and take a look at the bag...if I don't fall in love with it then no biggie :smile:

And don't worry about refusing an offer from the store, more than likely it will play to your advantage in the future. :smile:

Is it really that similar to Geranium? I wish I could see a side by side....I think it's interesting that you say refusing an offer might play to my advantage in the future! Since I'm an amateur at H dealings could you explain that to me? :smile:

It being too loud in a 40 is definitely something I'm concerned about. I'm 5'8 so I think I carry off the 40's pretty well (and love them) but I definitely don't want the red to overpower me in any way. A bag should compliment an outfit, imo, not be the main focus....that being said I love bright colored bags! Lol.

This makes me feel a little better...I didn't want to pass on the FIRST bag being offered since I really want to establish a relationship with H and, eventually, place a SO!

Why don't you bring your Geranium with you? Then you can decide if they are too similar. I can relate a little, I love crisp blues and greens so I have lagoon and menthe, which some say are too similar! If you love it when you see it, that's all that matters.

Thanks LG :hugs: I agree...I think I'll take the Geranium and compare the two. Plus it's an opportunity to visit H and pick up a few goodies :graucho: My friend has never been to an H so it'll be an experience for her too.

I think comparing the two colors in person is a great idea! That way, you will know for sure if RC absolutely sings to you :smile: Besides, who knows what else you may find hiding at H if you go visit! :biggrin:

Good luck and have fun on your road trip!
