Hi So I'm totally new to Hermes. The reason I'm interested is because my mom told me she'd get me a new bag for graduation, and I want to get something timeless and classic. I was thinking Chanel, but their styles aren't really "me" (although the are beautiful). Sooo I was thinking Hermes. But, like I said, I know nothing, so I figured this place would be the best place to go! The only thing I'm hesitant about is the price range. I think my budget is $2k (maybe $2500 if I beg enough!) - can I get a nice Hermes for that (doesn't have to be exotic - plain old leather is good enough for me)? I don't want a clutch - I want something that's more functional. Which styles should I be looking at? Also, where should I be looking to buy one? I'm in NYC, so I can always go to the Hermes store, but that place is a little...intimidating. I feel like I'd have to get dressed up to just walk by. Also, I've heard rumors of waitlists - is this going to be a problem? Thanks for everything! I know there's someone out there who's knowledgeable and patient enough to help me!
