Yesterday, I carried my 30cm vermillion Birkin at work. One of my colleagues who have never seen it before went up to me to check on something else work-related. She saw my bag which was facing backwards and said, "What a lovely color and shape!" She then turned the bag around and saw the brand. She then reacted, "Wow, you are just amazing! That is one beautiful bag and look at the craftsmanship. That is one good investment!" That made me so happy! This lady carries her LV epi bag most of the time and I was so happy that people at my workplace are so understanding! Whenever my boss, the boss of my boss, and other colleagues also see me with my H bags, they just remark that they're beautiful purses! Well, there are 2 other ladies here who also carry Birkins, so I guess that helps!
