Well my birthday started with me going to get my first digital camera! So I finally found a use for my wapity case and can provide better quality modeling pics (as soon as I figure out how to do it, still have to read the manual) The camera is the Olympus Stylus 740 thats all weather, 7.1 megapixel, with 5x optical zoom! It was a birthday present from my parents that I picked out. Then I headed downtown, and you guys are going to throw tomatoes at me, I cheated on LV and got my first Hermes bag! You can read about it here: http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes/its-my-birthday-i-bought-myself-my-very-131519.html So last year for my birthday, I bought myself my first LV bag, and this year I bought myself my first Hermes. Then I went to LV and tried on the black shawl, folded in half the way Jill recommended wearing it. I asked my friend if I looked ridiculous, and she said yes, I look like I'm wearing a Dracula cape! Well that rules out the black shawl.. I also tried on the Champagne shawl, which looked better on me than the black...but still, no shawl for me...I'm not the only one who thinks I look ridiculous! Then I asked to see the Pomme Koala Wallet, thinking they wouldn't have it because last time I asked, there was still a waiting list for it. They had it and I liked it! If they had not had the Hermes bag I wanted, I would have bought the wallet! I might get it next time! Well thats my birthday story, sorry if I'm not making much sense, I'm so tired!
