Thank you! It's been quite a few years and I'm happy it still looks great. Some of the bags I bought back then don't look as good anymore...
This was my first H bag period. I don't really know what they're called but it's pretty much the same as a garden party except it has that top flap. It's about 40cm in width (I believe...). It used to be my workhorse bag, and bag to take to my language school. People always commented on its huge size but it is perfect to put books and notebooks in, along with my daily stuff. However, this kinda size will always be heavy, especially when it is stuffed with books! This was not the bag I took with me to grad school (though I should have as it is so under the radar), that was another one. The scarf I tied on it was probably my first H scarf, though memory seems to be failing lately. My sister has a smaller size in red that I remember we got in around the same period, maybe a week or two apart.
My first birkin. Given to me by my amazing DM! Though I did go with her for the pick up, lol. 35cm togo in Blue Jean & PHW. It was not the color we were expecting as we had PO a vert anis, but I am happy with it, and I've been happy with it. Love the white stitching on it. The twillies and charm were both purchased over the years. I have a disease that if I buy a twilly, I have to buy a double, just in case. I think there is only 1 twilly that I didn't buy a double for, not really sure why- it was such a nice one too. I've seen some people hanging the lock & keys on the side of the bag, as shown in the pictures... I've never done that before and just started. I like it! Again, not the bag I carried to grad school!
More will follow as I'm failing to multi-task between picture editing and browsing the forum! Thank you for coming.
I look at your collection and just say, "Wow!". Very impressive
Thank you, you are very sweet!
Some of the others...
My 27cm (I think?) bolide in Rose Shocking. Purchased in maybe 2008. I was dying for anything in pink and when they showed me this I just decided to get it. Normally I use it with the shoulder strap. The other picture is how I accessorize it sometimes. Used to collect those animal charms (but not anymore), and the twillies are new, just got them on my recent trip to Germany.
Black KP GHW. Purchased in Paris several years ago. I keep kicking myself for not asking if they had any birkins, seriously, I am so stupid. Two years after that I went to Paris again and never even went to H. I'm still kicking myself lol.
My only other bolide 37cm. I don't know what the color is but it is probably the only large bag that I bought myself with GHW. And that twilly is the only twilly that I never got a double of and perhaps my first experience with clemence. It comes with a long strap but I never use it.
This Kelly was purchased by my DM in summer 2008, the color is Blue Paon (I think?) and it is 32cm in Chevre. Last year, my DM gave this little beauty to me. It was my first full-fledged Kelly (the KP doesn't count ) but it's not like I got any other Kellys after this lol.
It was very sweet of my DM, she gave me lots of her H bags recently as she said she isn't using them. One of them is too special I found it difficult to accept- but both bags will be loved to pieces! I used to always borrow them from her anyway.
The orange twilly originally was purchased in double in another color but when I saw that it came in orange too I got a double also. They do much some of my current bags so no regrets there. The charm is the birkin charm, purchased for my birkin and the pagesus cadena; I remember my sister got the kelly charm with a cadena of her own.
Got a bunch other things to post but I am currently working on my to-do lists for the next two weeks and so anxious of what's to come, if it comes at all!!! Surely when that's over and done I'll have more time to relax and just edit photos lol.
Not really sure what this pop up tote is called, pop-silk maybe? I was really big on reusable totes at the time (still are but maybe no need to buy new ones? ) and the colors are just gorgeous. They make me think of a chocolate mint cake, my favorite!
My bleu du prusse (correct the name if I'm wrong, I'm not too sure of it myself!) lindy. I think she is the 30cm size. My sister had just gotten a bigger orange lindy previously and I found her really practical... had to try and get one of my own. Our old SA from the old days was such a doll. The lindy they had was reserved for someone else... but I think they called the person and they weren't interested anymore, and I get it on the spot. My orange twillies again that I use on the kelly also, I'd gotten them in another color that I will post later. The tiger charm, used to collect these charms...would love to collect more but I'm on ban till something I want arrives...if it ever arrives...hmm...... I think I'll live! Some exciting things are coming up in my personal life so for now I'll just let it go.
Another bag whose name I don't know. I think I first got a glimpse of these here on TPF and just had to have one, asked my SA to keep one for me and just quickly went and got her. They didn't receive many too as I understood it. Seriously love her! Not a bad I'd take to work or school but a perfect relaxing day bag especially for the summer!
There is a bag hiding under that draped (and completely messed up) scarf. But I do not want to show her here as I'm thinking about selling her due to lack of use. I used to really enjoy using her but things got a bit complicated due to the way she is structured and the weight. Still a gorgeous bag but I just don't know, thinking I may one day opt for a smaller size. One day in the far far far future.... As for the scarf, sorry for the blasphemous state its in but its been heavily used and stuff, but I do need to steam it if I'm ever to wrap it around the kelly or used it as a shoulder strap which is my latest obsession!
More to come. Got a couple more H bags to show you guys, and some H accessories and shoes. I've realized that I missed a few non-H bags perhaps due to excitement of talking about my beloveds! Thank you all for taking the time to visit!
Wow, that is some collection. And great closet space!
Thank you for your sweet comments. I really wish I had better use of space but I didn't know better at the time and was quite limited in terms of available designs. Can only try to make the best of what I have right now!
One random comment I forgot to add about this scarf. The reason I was attracted to its design and colors is due to the fact that it reminds me of a video game I played in High School and in Uni the early years, Kingdom Hearts & Kingdom Hearts 2 Okay that's enough being a nerd for now. lol
I am enamored with your collection! It's breathtaking! So many LV's my head is spinning lol! I only have 7 handbags and handful of accessories but you my dear are out of this world amazing with your sensational collection! What a beautiful and fabulous collection it is! Something to be very proud of! I hope you get 10000000 more :)
