Hi all! I haven't been active on here for the past couple of years and haven't set foot in a Hermes boutique for the same amount of time. I've been too busy with school, work and family. To be honest, I wasn't into Hermes for the past while because I felt that I can never have enough, and I didn't have the time and energy to visit the store and tried to get my dream bag.

I've owned a few pieces of Hermes like the B/K/C, roulis, pictotin, garden party and bolide, and I felt quite content with my collection. Mind you, if I can afford to buy whatever I want, I would certainly buy more. lol I think I am at the point in my life that I want my bag to be functional, comfortable to carry and still look good and chic. So I decided to return to the boutique and see if I can feel excited again.

I wanted to do this thread because first I've been away for a while and second I think this bag deserve more love if it's not already. My old SA left, and now I am assigned to an SA whom I've kind of known for a long time, but he was never my SA. Of course he asked if there was anything I was interested, and I said yes, I wanted a Roulis 18 in black with ghw or in gold with ghw. He said, hmmmm, that's hard because we don't have one at the moment. He said anything else? I replied I wanted a k25 if you have one, he giggled. Then he asked if I own a Halzan, I said what, I don't think I like that bag. He said you should try it on first, then decide. He went and checked on color and size, and came back we have a black in 31 and gold in 31. I said gold?? I want to see that. I've dying to get a gold color bag. My current collection is a bit colorful, and I start to enjoy neutral color more.

So I tried on the gold, and the bag started to grow on me. TBH - I never tried on this bag, because it never appeal to me. I tried on the evelyne before and I didn't like it because I like structure bag. Then he explained how you can wear it many different ways. I usually wear jeans and sweatshirt, so this bag is definitely casual enough for me to wear, and the gold color looks so perfect with jeans. Of course I couldn't say no to this, and now it's home with me.

i've collected different brand over the years, and now I want to limit my collection and only keep the bags that I will use. I used to buy bag just for collection, but that can be quite costly if I am not well off.

Thanks for reading my post and letting me share my excitement. I am truly excited about this bag and can't wait to wear.

We are bag twins! I purchased this bag a few years ago, and it’s still the most used bag in my collection after all this time. Looks especially good with navy blue and white outfits. Congrats!

Fabulous choice! Like you I did not pay much attention to the halzan until I tried one on and loved it. I have wanted one in barenia and I have read h has discontinued the halzan. Say it ain’t so. Love the gold as it goes with everything. Wear her in good health!

Thank you for your kind word. I am surprised how easy this style is to wear. And gold, how can I say no to that. I think if this wasn’t in gold, I would have had a little hesitation.
