My love for the Birkin bag like most of you, started many years ago. For me, it was the fall of 2005 standing on 5th avenue in New York City. A elegantly dressed woman walks by and I couldn’t help but stare at her bag. It was stunning, classic and the perfect. Of course, I couldn’t let her walk away without knowing what the name of that bag was. The following conversation went a little something like this… “Excuse me, may I ask where you purchased this purse? its beautiful.” “Um, at Hermes”. Scratching my head as I walked away since I have never heard of such a brand. Later that night, I did some Googling of the beautiful “Hermes bag”. And well, at that time there wasn’t much information about it… Fast forward 10 years and with more knowledge, I was financially and mentally ready to try and secure my dream Birkin. Like most, I sought after the 35. Luckily for me, my dream (or so I thought) Birkin 35 came just three weeks after my first visit to the store. I was on cloud 9. Heaven. How could this happen so soon? As the year and bags went by, I’ve built a really wonderful relationship with my SA and in October 2016, she offered me a chance to create my first special order. At that time, I was still early on my Hermes journey and was shocked that I was fortunate enough to create my dream bag! As luck would have it, 7 months later, I was offered my second special order opportunity. While I am still waiting for my first order to come, the New Year rang with my second special order! Lets get to the photos shall we? Any guesses on specs?
