It passed the test...

  1. Both physical and mental... what the heck am I talking about?

    I bought my first birkin yesterday, a 30cm black togo with GH, from a local reseller. I was really beating myself mentally whether I made the right decision, although I did love it when I laid eyes on it at the store. And of course, the price was higher than at Hermes (I can't say, otherwise I'll feel really guilty). But I got it, and I love it, and I don't forsee me buying another birkin for awhile.

    I didn't say anything yesterday on the threads b/c I was so nervous about seeing the bag that I paid a lot for.

    I took it out on a test run to ease my mind this morning on my errands, and it totally passed the weight test (was it going to be too heavy whilst shopping? it didn't get heavy) and the accessibility test (kept it open and was able to grab my wallet and keys very easily) and the 'can it fit all my essentials' test (which it did).

    i feel better now.... i love it. and the crazy thing is that i looked a little shlumpy today (hey's it's cold and i've got a 4month old) and carrying that bag made me feel awesome.

    so i guess paying a little extra was worth it. (i actually posted a thread yesterday wondering if black birkins with GH were easy to find.)

    it actually reminded me of my tod's d-bag, which i love for accessibility.

  12. Babyhart, I completely understand. I agonized for a few weeks about purchasing my Birkin (which I just did a few hours ago). I haven't even gotten it yet and I am thinking about the same things: will it be too heavy (it's Togo 35 CM); will I carry it everyday; will I love the color (Rouge H). I am supposed to get it on Thursday, so I will have to report back...but I totally empathize with you...
     
  13. Oh and please post pics!
     
  14. If it's a bag you've always wanted and will use it to death, it is worth every penny. Congrats on a fabulous find!
