Joining the Hermes showers club..

  1. I strolled into Hermes yesterday and there it was, a 30 Birkin sitting in a display case! I was chatting with the SA about wallets, having a feel, etc. but the whole time, my heart was pounding! I just had to ask to see that Birkin! He very kindly took it out and let me handle it for a bit and well.. the rest is history.:angel: I am now the proud owner of a 30 Potiron clemence Birkin with PH!!!:yahoo:I know, I know.. I was thinking of either a black or gold 30 Birkin for my first but when I saw the Potiron, I knew I was a goner.. I was in love!:love::love::love: The colour is just fabulous! There was a wallet in orange in the boutique and that was bright! The Potiron on the other hand is a more subdued, darker orange colour with slight brown undertones. Just luscious!

    Anyway, without further ado.. here are a couple of pics!

    ETA: I'm 5'3", wearing rather flat (1.5") heels in that pic. The pic of the bag alone shows the true colour pretty well, I'd say.

  13. Thankyou all so much:heart:. I'm nearly in tears from being overwhelmed by all your kind, sweet comments:cry:. At first I had a split second thought I should wait for a black or gold Birkin like I had planned but I just fell in love seeing the potiron. It's really not something one can rationalise. So much for well laid out plans, lol, but when I saw the colour in person, I knew it was for me. I really didn't expect to be an "orange bag" kinda girl but now there's no looking back!:yahoo: I'm still buzzing from the high!
