i came across an hermes bag with a serious icky factor -- and thought it would be fun to see what else is out there of the same ilk. i recoginze that this is probably a collectors' item, and that some of you may like it. but for me? well, it inspired a heart-felt "YUCK!" presenting, in all its glory, a vintage "quito" shoulderbag in . . . are you ready? . . . beluga whale skin!!!!
