It’s no secret that I’m a huge Hermès fan. I’ve been lusting after an Hermès Birkin or Kelly since my college age days. I couldn’t comprehend who in their right mind would pay so much for a handbag (and that’s when they were “only” $5k!). Crazy to think how times have changed. I still save up for each purchase, and they’re a huge deal to me. Not only because of the price, but also because I’m a true collector now: I’m not interested in rotating my Hermès collection any longer. Mostly because of a respect for the brand (whose position on reselling is well known) but also because of their construction, Hermès bags are heirloom quality: I fully intend my girls to be well-stocked when it comes to their handbag inheritance. 😂
With that being said, here’s the wishlist “lookbook” I sent to my sales specialist at Hermès. He probably thinks I’m a nut. That’s okay.
