Ladies and Gents, I have a problem. I am in love with both the Gris T and the etoupe and I find myself wanting both of these bags.

Currently I have a 35cm. Gris T Clemence Birkin and I love it dearly. My friend has a 30cm. Etoupe Clemence Birkin, so I borrowed it to make comparison shots.

Now, the Question: Do you think it would be stupid of me to get both bags? The shades are almost the same only the sizes differ?

Are they different or not?:confused1::confused1::confused1:

Please chime in ladies and gents, need your opinions

Hey, Jen!!!

Although I would hesitate in getting an etoupe in 35 (since you have a Gris T in 35), I think it's totally fine to get an etoupe in 30. There is enough difference to warrant a purchase (although it doesn't take too much for me!)

Hi Jen! No I don't think so. I would get them both. Even though they are pretty similar, in fact they're quite different in some way (Etoupe has more brown tone and Gris T is more pale). I have both Etoupe (Bolide) and Gris T (Kelly). Go for it. :tup:

You clearly love both shades of grey/taupe - so why not? Don't let yourself be convinced to get a bag that is in another family of color just so you have a different "color" bag. At the end of the day, if you find yourself using both bags very often and loving them both..... that's all that matters

, how do you wear the Gris T vs. Etoupe?

What colors do you match it with and how do you decide which bag to use?

Please please please share some pics:rolleyes:

Hahaha. This is certainly a forum for enablers. I wanted to wait for someone with a different advice. Someone who would tell you not to be silly by purchasing two CEMENT colored bags. But to no avail.

If finances isn't a problem, go right ahead. Knock yourself out!:tup:

jen, IMO, do you really love etoupe?

if the answer is YES, then what are you waiting for????? :biggrin:

however if you just feel you 'need' etoupe because maybe the ladies here most compliment etoupe, say its a neutral/easy to match color etc... so its not for love...

then why not reserve your funds for something else tt will make sings to your heart?

just my 2 cents... :biggrin:

This advice is very sound. I like the way you think, archangel.:tup: I think the seduction of Hermes' repertoire of colours can confuse one's natural preference for certain colours, and how these complement one's wardrobe. Whilst it may be extremely "rewarding" to acquire a bag or two from different colour families, if they stay in their boxes, it does nothing for the owner.
