Hi All, I have been an avid collector of handbags for many years now. Started with Burberry, Coach, Fendi, Louis and Gucci, but for the last two years only Chanels and Balenciagas. I have stopped buying Balenciagas late last year and promised myself to stick to Chanel (hence the name) as it was within my price range. However, since venturing onto the H side mainly purusing the posts of all the lovely members. I started to feel that maybe I should really stop buying 4 to 5 Chanels a year and save up my hard earned money for a Birkin. I'm really scared to think about this mainly because I feel that it is unattainable for me. Especially, waiting for such a purchase and also the rarerity of the item. Mind made up however, that I will start putting away my money and hold off making any other purchase except for an Hermes purchase and hopefully a 30 BLACK BIRKIN WITH GOLD HARDWARE in a not so distant future. Wish me luck everyone!!!!!
