Hermes Ostrich Kelly

Before the Birkin rage, Hermes Kelly is much coveted by savvy fashionable gals. Kelly bags are much more lady-like and structured comparing to the tote-like Birkin which can become super heavy after a gal put all her goodies inside. I weighted a few Birkins, on average each weighted about 8 pounds. So what is a gal to do when facing an ostrich Kelly in black and fuchsia? According to a savvy family member, she buys both! The black is more conservative and such a classic but the fuchsia Kelly just pops and is so much fun. For exotic bags, I think it is much savvier to buy color instead of black to really showoff the texture.
However, if money is not an issue, I think a gal should have a black Kelly as well. Hermes Kelly looks great dressy with suits/tailor dresses or casual with tees and jeans. To keep the bag casual, a gal can wear the bag with straps open and close the flap with the twist lock which allows easy access to things inside.
Gal pal usually wears Kelly diagonally like a messenger because she has to carry a tot. If I buy a Kelly bag, I will buy the 32 cm instead of 28 cm. These 28 cm Hermes Kelly ostrich bags will cost about $14,000 each. Ouch!!! A normal Kelly bag starts at about mid $6000 last year. Which do you prefer, black or color?

  1. Hi there-they are fabulous, but if I had to choose, then a colour one-its more of a pop of colour in winter then too!

  2. Hey Savvvvvvvs!
    I think I'll take a few colorful ones, as soon as I hit the lottery and wait 5 years on the waiting list!

  4. That is a tough call (haha, don't I know it). I guess it depends on when the person is going to carry it. To the workplace I would go with black. But definitely get both if can afford it.

  5. I used to always be practical and buy all my accessories in black ,which meant I had a closet full of boring. A color is a much better option.

  6. I tend to stick to plain colors for clothes, mostly black, but I LOVE bright colored purses. But I can't buy a bag made of ostrich...which I assume this one is =(

    Hope you had a great weekend!!

  8. Hermes makes the most beautiful color leather plain and exotic. My bad photos just do not show off the beautiful color. In the beginning I scoffed at the hot pink color but it's really pops agains black. And, the color ones look great casual too!
