this 'birkin phase' in fashion will die. Maybe its wishful thinking but i can't wait for the birkin (and kelly) to be out of the 'it' circle. They should be appreciated as classics and people whom have and interest is fashion and quality. I'm hoping it will die down soon, and with it slow the constantly soaring price of the bags. The day ill be ready to buy a bag they will be in the 20K region. *sigh* ok im starting to ramble. What are your thoughts?
