Let me start my story: I have my first and only Hermes bag abt a year ago (when I was 28). It's a Potiron colour Kelly 32cm Togo leather. It costs about USD5200. I sold my yellow diamond ring and used the funds to buy this Kelly bag. My husband hates this bag because he thinks it's expensive. It's a heavy bag, so sometimes I need his help to carry it for me. I always trade my possessions, and Kelly was also one of my target tradeable item, however, after launching to this forum, I feel that I should keep it and trade my other small jewelry items instead. I don't use my Kelly often because it's heavy and not convenient to bring her around to take MTR (train/tube). On average, I use it once per month. As you can see from my other thread, I am looking for a Evelyne bag because it's less expensive and much lighter in weight. The reason why I bought Hermes Kelly is that I think it's the icon of Hermes (although Birkin is more popular and stylish), and I think every lady (who can afford) should own the most prestigious branded name goods. For jewelry and watch, should be cartier, tiffany, AP, PP, Piaget and Buccellati; and for shoes, it will be Roger Vivier, Christian Louboutin, and Jimmy Choo; and for handbags, it must be Hermes and Judith Leiber. I wonder when I can complete owning all these brand, or it can be never.
