I've been lurking way too much in this subforum and have fallen hopelessly in love!!!! I am on a mission to find my first birkin! I've started my 'fund' and am selling off alot of my bags. You ladies have been a wealth of information and I've learned sooo much here! I am wanting a 30 cm gold w/ph. I've been thinking about togo but just recently learned that some of them are veined. What do you all think of these veins? Do they bug you or do you think it gives the bag individuality and character?? Are they as obvious IRL as they are in pics? I've only seen pics since I am not very close to a boutique. Just wanting some opinions from the experts!!
