suggestions or ideas? This will be my first ever trip into a Hermes Boutique..... Hello all, I am new to this forum and this will be my first post....I have been reading this forum for about 2 weeks now. Actually my hubby found it b/c I told him I was in search for a Hermes bag and he was reading up on it on the computer and found this forum. I love reading everyone's ideas and thoughts....I feel like I can identify with all of you. However, I don't have that Birkin or Kelly bag yet. I was looking on line, and trying to find either a Birkin or a Kelly bag, and can't decide on which. I almost bid on one last night and decided to wait until this weekend, b/c I will possibly have a chance to go to the Houston Hermes boutique. Here are my questions: 1. Never really touched a Hermes bag, and have a chance this weekend? Has anyone been to the Houston boutique, any tips? 2. I am in my late 30's, stay at home mom, w/ 3 kids....don't know which would be suitable for me....A Birkin or a Kelly? What leather, and size. 3. I am a Chanel fan, and have the classic ones that I love, but am also looking for a quality, timeless bag, and useful....that's why I was looking on line for a pre-owned one., to use and not put away like in a museum, I really take care of my purses and don't trash them. I've been reading alot of the threads, from stay - at -home moms, to this thread, to size of a Birkin or Kelly on different body types....I think I need to touch one physically and see what to purchase, too. Lastly, Hubby is supportive of all this, but he kind of mentioned that he would rather get me a really nice piece of jewelry instead? Kind of stuck...don't know what to do....but I REALLY "LOVE" this board, you all are a wealth of knowledge, and I really feel like I have a lot in common with you all. Thanks and take care!
