both colours are great for a first b, black is probably the more versatile, but 40 is big and heavy, so would pick the 35.

Can I suggest that you select a really reputable reseller first, and then decide on the bag?

You've looked at a bunch of bags now, none of which have turned out to be authentic, and already have posted a thread indicating difficulties with the practices of one reseller.

It would probably be best for your peace of mind to find someone trustworthy and reliable and go from there. There are a lot of authentic Birkins out there - you will find one. I wouldn't rush into getting one because it is being offered.

I agree :smile: I guess I am counting my chickens before they hatch !!!! I was just so excited!!!

I will do my homework and definately get it ok'ed in the authentication thread before I commit.
I am hoping the next one turns out to be my dream bag :smile:
