Hi everyone -- so I've been hanging around the H forum, getting more and more interested for about a month now. The up-side of Hermes being such an addiction is that there ends up being such a huge amount of knowledge about it here, so it's been a fun learning experience. So of course now I want a Birkin . But that's really an enormous purchase for meush:. It's something I'd like to think about for a while (plus it takes so long to get one!). But I really would like to get into other areas of H that won't hurt my wallet quite so much. I don't just want one Birkin and then that's it. I think I'd prefer to start small and build up a collection of pieces that I love. So I'd love some advice on my first piece. At this point I think I'd like to spend less than $1000 and I'm leaning towards a leather bracelet (how much do the double-wrap ones cost?). I also think scarves are a great way to begin, but I don't think I'd wear it very much at this point. I love to look at them, but I don't want to waste money on something that's going to sit in the box. Does anyone have any other thoughts?
