ok guys... we all know the pricetags at Hermes. even the wealthiest ones of us understand that these bags don't come cheap. how do you maintain your lifestyles and still build the H collections that you desire in a timely manner (ie not buying one Birkin a decade, but more like twice or three times annually)?? did you sell all your other bags? do you splurge only on Hermes and go to non-designer stores for all other things? Are you just blessedly wealthy? my family is well-off and i've earned my own money working in modeling/ entertainment but that work is very sporadic and when its going well it allows me to buy a $10k bag without blinking an eye and spend another $10k on clothes in one day, and when its slow im asking my mother for $$$ and frankly, this option is getting extremely frustrating and not something i want to continue doing, but thats another story. so what do you do? does there have to be a sacrifice? should i stop pressuring myself to get more H bags? but i've been spoiled and really think they are the best now and want to explore every H bag! i can't bear to not buy another H bag anytime soon. its become an addiction. but this isn't Chanel where you can walk out with a pretty cool, unusual bag for $2,500. The sort of "cool, unusual" Plume i want, for example, is going to run me about $8,000.
