Dear Ladies, I've had such fun on this forum and I really feel at home. This is one of the best message boards I've been to, and I've been to my fair share of nasty ones - I'm happy to have found this place. I don't have a drool-worthy collection like some of you but I just want to have quality pieces with versatile utility. I'm hoping to receive advice on which H bags to get - colors, styles, leathers, etc. I'm a minimalist at heart, afraid of too much attention. Sometimes I throw in a dash of color. I'm semi-casual/formal. I like comfortable accessories: roomy, elegant, and discreet. I'm 159cm, 5'2 or so, 27 y.o. I'm an urban nomad and love large bags. I will be a first-time owner of an H bag. I might get a Birkin or two or a Birkin or a Kelly or SO or whatever is in Faubourg and George V. I've eliminated many "IT" (Chanels, Pradas, Guccis, LVs, ARGH!!) bags and I'm trying to buy more lasting pieces. I'm posting the handbags I've kept (reasons of utility and sentimental value), so you can see what I already have and recommend what H bags would suit me. I'm going to Paris in a few weeks and would like to get some informed opinions from H lovers. I love reading all your opinions, and it's a privilege to be in the company of you all. Here are pics of what the handbag collection I've downsized to (sorry, if they aren't too focused): Valextra, Ferragamo (would love to get rid of it), Valentino, Chanel, LV, YSL, Fendi, Loewe. I also have a large Bottega Veneta Ebano hobo, but no live pic because it's being repaired.
