One word...

Timeless.

They will always be made, they will always look fashionable. They will outlast almost anything else you purchase as a fashion piece.

When you think about what you spend money on, the fact that a Kelly can spend the rest of your life with you makes it a worthwhile thing to save for.

:yes: A Kelly is such a great value for the money. Even though it costs a lot, you can carry it forever. And it will always be in style and will hold up to years of wear. I wanted a Kelly for the longest time and ended up buying other bags intead because the price tag of the Kelly was just so much! But I easily spent the price of a Kelly on other stuff. It just didn't seem like such a sticker shock because it was in smaller chunks of money spread out over time, kwim? Long story short I found a vintage Kelly at a good price and I am so happy! :cloud9: I really haven't had the urge to buy that I used to. (OK, except for the urge to find another vintage Kelly someday! ;))

Glad you found you kelly, I think maybe i should try and find a pre-loved one too but find most sellers seem to be from the states and that means possible custom charges?, does anyone know of uk sellers

I have always adored Hermes Kellys from when I was a child, there is no other handbag to me. I just love everything about them and properly cared for, the bag can last a lifetime and beyond.

I overheard a woman looking at bags on the sale table at Saks a few months ago: she said she wanted the YSL structured bag in patent leather because it's looks like the Kelly. I wanted to tell her, honey, save your money for the real thing! Even on sale the YSL was expensive! Compared to other similar bags (Ferragamo the exception maybe), the Kelly has much more elegant lines and has a heftiness that makes it seem so much more sturdy and well built than other bags. I can honestly say that after I got my Kelly I actually entertained the thought of not getting anymore bags period...I was that happy with it. HA. I should've amended that to no more NON-H bags period. A few weeks later I was pondering what color birkin I would like to have while walking past the MiuMiu and Bottega displays that I used to love.

Do you love the late Princess Grace Kelly? If you do, you'll love the kelly more.

Its true...i dont even glance at other bags. Not everyone is the same, there are certainly ladies who continue to buy other brands. But for me, nothing is like Hermes, and since I am not very fashion-forward or current (LOL, more retro than anything), I am happy to rub and sniff and carry my Hermes colleciton exclusively.
