how much your H bag costs? i was in the office with two of my coworkers. Coworker A knows what birkins are and he was super excited with my new acquisition. Coworker B has no idea what a birkin is, he saw a Prada ad once and said "what is Pray-da" ? A asked permission to look at the birkin and carry it around the office, he swanned over to B, who looked at him blankly and said, what is that you're holding there? A said, huh! it's a Birkin and B said a what-kin? later B looked at the bag and asked me why A was so excited about it. he said, how much did you pay for it, 30 bucks? i said no, a bit more and he said, how much exactly? i wasn't sure how to answer the question but i ended up telling him it cost more than 1000 dollars (he kept ratcheting up the price). anyway, if he found out how much it cost it would give him a stroke, seriously. for your non H bag in the know friends/coworkers/families, how do you handle the "how much did that bag cost?" personally i was not insulted by the fact he thought it was less expensive. that's the appeal of the bag, it's so well made but it's not flashy, most people on the street wouldn't notice. i like that i can carry it around fairly incognito. of course those who know what it is recognize it for its quality, but i like that most people don't know. it's like a secret hope that makes sense. any comments welcome.
