    What's everybody's favorite Hermes bag? I know that most ppl like the Birkin, but I personally am a haut a courreougeous girl. (And I know that I butchered that spelling :blush: ) Does anyone prefer Kelly's (my second runner up) or another version. Also, what are your fave colors and textures? I prefer ostritch, any shade.

    I love this black leather Kelly, I prefer them to the Birkin. The Birkin is undoubtedly gorgeous too, but I think the Kelly is classic and elegant. Third favourite hermes bag is the Constance, very cute. :heart:

    Birkin, not for me. ^_^

    Also, it's a waste because you pay top dollar, but almost you can see it everywhere. :rolleyes:

    Too classic and ladies-who-luch type. :doh:

    It's not a waste if you think it's worth it. ;) I think the great thing about the Birkin is that so many different types of women carry it. It could be the "ladies-who-lunch" or it could someone more modern. Like any accessory its how you carry it that makes it different.

    You have a point there my friend :flower: . I just look for a certain modern edge on things. ;)

    Also, my point on the 'waste' was how would you feel if you paid $4,500 on something and when you leave your house you see a girl who has the samething?

    Oh, me too. B) That's why I would choose a grey Birkin.

    See, here's the difference between me and most of other girls - I don't care if the next 20 chicks I see has the same thing I do. I'm not going to pay $5000.00+ to outrank anyone else. I do it for myself. :flower:

    I think almost every Hermes bag is insanely beautiful. I love the Cacahuete, Evelyn, Constance, and Garden Party bags as well as the Birkin and Kelly. And their canvas and grained leather luggage is possibly the chicest in the world.

    i think the birkin is beautiful and it does not matter if everyone other woman has one on the street (as they did on Michigan Ave) it is classic but...

    i think a birkin should be bought only by those who do not have to save for one. i think it is silly if you have a mortgage payment and a birkin.

    i cannot help but chuckle at the woman who has a birkin but can only pay the minimum balance on her massive credit card bill.... those ladies are delusional and simply obsessed with the bag or the message the bag sends.

    but i have said before that is just my opinion and if you think it makes sense to save for it and have it go for it!

    I'd like an ostrich skin birkin preferably in orange. I've got a pic of the grey ostrich
    attached...(this is just a replica by the way... can't afford the real one... maybe someday sigh )

    Thank you! I couldn't agree more. I'm sorry I will not ever ever ever buy that bag even if I can afford :lol:

    But to each its own pockets and debts

    I'm just wondering about something...

    I've never seen quality leather goods wrapped in plastic. Plastic dries out leather; you should never store leather in plastic bags, for instance. How come all these replicas are often photographed with plastic coverings?

    Btw, I agree with Craig about the Kelly in basic calf. Classic, elegant, sturdy!
