I've realized that I just don't have the patience to wait for "the one" to appear in a store (LOL, likely in Buenos Aires, knowing my luck!) so I caved in and bought my first Birkin from the lovely reseller, lucyndskywdmnds. I think hell must have officially frozen over when DH okay'ed the marked-up price, but I can't complain... he loved the pics of Rouge Garance... funny, I never really realized how pretty the color was until I saw it next to the other reds! It's such a wearable bright red without the undertones!! So introducing my new baby - 35cm Rouge Garance Birkin in Clemence with PH (I'm thinking of naming her Ruby - is that silly or what?) But you know what the bad news is?? DH won't let me get her/use her until MAY!!! Aargh! She's supposed to be my treat for finishing residency and passing my boards (They aren't till the spring but I've pre-emptively bought her :shame: , so keep your fingers crossed that I do pass!) So she'll be waiting for me to use I get the official passing letter... I'll be changing my signature to a countdown to pick-up day now! I am now NO LONGER on the hunt for a Rouge Birkin!
