Have you ever lost a chance on getting your dream bag and have regrets about it later?? I saw a kelly in orange which I love couple of months ago, but I didnt get close to it. At the time, I thought it was not practical for my lifestyle since I dont like hand held only bags in general and it was too expensive! But what I didnt realize back then was that it costs at least $2000 less than if I had gotten it in the States and that Kelly comes with a shoulder strap!!! I wish I had at least looked at it closely to see if it had the hardware that I like. I knew nothing about leather and stitching style then. On the other hand, maybe that would just make me feel even worse. I really dont think I will get that lucky again. Sigh!!! I have learned a lot about Kelly since then from all you wonderful pfers and I regret so much now for not buying it when I had a chance, even though my husband would have had a heart attack for buying 2 hermes bags on the same day!!
