Hello everyone, I hope each one is enjoying a nice summer season. I just wanted to share my unexpected good fortune of acquiring my first 40cm birkin. Several months ago, I asked my SA to add my name to their waiting list for a 40cm birkin in chocolate with palladium hardware. Well, I received an unexpected call on Friday afternoon that a bag just came in and will be on hold for me to look at thru Sunday. I stopped by the store late Saturday afternoon and took a look at the bag in person. The box was still wrapped in plastic when my sa brought her out. I immediately fell in love with this birkin's color, stitching and proportions. At first I thought it was a HAC because she appeared taller than my previous 35cm birkins. It was my first time to see a 40cm birkin in person.
