Introductions are in order!

  1. Hello Hermes lovers!! I've been an avid follower of tPF ever since I luckily scored my first beauty this past weekend, and I only wish that I had come to this site earlier!! This is my first ever posting, and I thought I would introduce my story to you all... It has always been my dream to own a Hermes bag, and my DH shared that dream with me. So after the birth of my 3rd child this summer, my husband told me his gift to me was to get me my first bag. Unfortunately, I did not do my homework ahead of time and did not know to come here to do my research. While on vacation over Labor Day weekend, my husband chatted up with an SA (he has that amazing ability to charm anyone) and less than 2 months later, the SA called me to hightail over 100 miles to the store immediately (I had a 2 hour limit!!!) because my bag had suddenly become available. So on October 27, 2007 I became a proud owner of a 32cm black Kelly in togo with PH!! It is truly the perfect first bag, don't you think?! Now that I have gained my SA's trust, and unknowingly become sucked into an extremely expensive habit, my SA had graciously decided I was worthy enough to place a SO for a Birkin! I've been following your stories, and have slowly dreamed up what my 2nd bag should be. So many thanks to you all, and I hope to get to know everyone better!!!
