I'm not sure if another thread was started on this topic or not...but I am wondering if you purposely "dress up" for your Birkin/Kelly or not? A few days ago I was in Birmingham, MI and saw two women at different times really dressed up wearing their black 35cm Birkins w/gold hardware. One had a leopard-like coat with a huge diamond ring and the other lady was tall, thin and looked like she just had botox put in her lips and was saying "look how much I spent". Anyway...earlier that day I saw outside of NM a gorgeous Rouge H Birkin 35cm w/gold hardware being worn by a nice casually dressed woman who resembled a nice Laura Bush type and the Birkin at that point didn't look ostentatious and threatening. Where was Jag and Coco-nut to see all this Birkin excitement! Just curious if you have any opinions about this.
