Hello Hermes/purse lovers... I am close to doing something that might be considered horrible...even a sin...give up a 35 cm Togo Blue Jean Birkin. I know I want a Birkin for myself, but at first glance of it I thought its color was not as versatile as I would like, and thus not perfect for my taste. Yet, I opened my mind to it: it does stand out as a nice accent, especially with black and neutrals. I know I should read every post in the Hermes section before I ask this what is sure to be redundant question: But what is the best color/ size for the Birkin? What should I be holding out for? What is the best type of leather? When I see it I want to know it is "the one". Does anyone think the Blue Jean might be the one and I should not let it pass my doorstep for any reason? I am blonde, and 5 foot 7. So, initally I was thinking like a nice warm caramel type color, perhaps in a smoother leather, not togo. Does this exist? What Birkins do we own and covet? What does the world of Hermes have to offer me? (I went in the store and they said they had no catalog or anything to look through - is there a website with photos?) Finding the perfect Birkin for a lifetime may be like finding the perfect man, except with the bag maybe I can know what "it" looks like before I see it. My boyfriend doesn't like the Birkin...(gasp)...he says it is an "old lady bag" and prefers the Gaucho by Dior. He says it would make me too nervous to wear something so expensive. Maybe so. Despite what he says I think I could handle it. The Birkin is the Queen bag of bags, is it not? I long to own a bag that does not bow down to trends, and that if I bought it, even if it is expensive, it is for a lifetime. A sound investment I think. (Wow I just noticed the informative catalog...maybe I spoke too soon...I am editing this post to add this sentence! Sorry if I asked an obviously already answered question!) Thanks for your input in advance, and best wishes to everyone.
