Picked up my first Hermes, first Birkin, very special purchase for me

  1. Spent a wonderful evening ordering room service and enjoying my Birkin Ebene Clemence 40.

    I picked this beauty up at the Hermes Boutique on Madison Ave. - but, get this, I walked out with a big big orange bag but did not spend a dime in the store !

    I met up with a wonderful fellow tPFer who was able to help me realize a 40 bag with pal. hardware. She may reveal herself if she chooses. *Thank you* :smile:

    I love a big handbag. I love this colour. And I was ready to upgrade to Hermes.
    So, please enjoy these pics of the bag taken in my airport(JFK) hotelroom (with a warm and friendly staff, I might add).

    The experience of getting this bag is only closely matched to when I got my puppy.:heart:
