Ok. So today I went to the Hermes Boutique in BH to buy a couple of bracelets.I asked the SA who was helping me about the infamous waiting lists for the birkin bags, I was highly dissapointed when she told me the waiting lists were completly closed (which I knew, especially living in la) and she continued on with the whole " there nearly impossible to come by and basically sorry for me). So (sadly ) I continued on to the register to pay for the bracelets. As i was making my purchase I saw another sales associate unwrapping a birkin. I could'nt believe it I thought for sure she must have been getting ready to send the bag out, but just to make sure I asked my SA what the deal was with that birkin. She ran over to the other SA and within minutes returned with A Cognac Epsom 35cm birkin . I was thrilled, shocked and practically shaking (literally my hands were trembling) without hesitation I purchased the purse. But here is the thing I wanted a black or orange birkin. Not to say the CognAC isnt fabulous (because it sure is) but I wasnt sure if I should have held out- and who knows how long that would been - for my first choice colors, or if I should just be happy because I got my DREAM BAG. I am not having buyers remourse but instead wanted to know other fabulous fashionistas opions. I am open to all comments. Thanks!!!!
