Well, this has never happened to me before. I was at a conference today doing a presentation with my newly acquired Birkin by my side. A male friend came up afterwards and said 'great session' which was sweet then he spotted my Birkin and said 'wow, what a fantastic bag, what is it? It is gorgeous'. As he is a friend, I joked with him that he might not think so if he knew the cost, and he replied 'no, whatever it was, it is so worth it'. This friend is a boy's boy who I don't think would notice anything about fashion, clothes or appearance. He has never commented on a single item of mine and yet he could not stop touching and looking at the Birkin. Now I understand that of course, but I have never seen a reaction like that in someone with a Y chromosome. Have you?
