  1. This is such an adorable story.

    Basically she saw a misnamed Birkin bag in a fashion magazine ... and her life changed in a really amazing way.

    "Les magazines de mode s’entassaient dans l’appartement. Un jour, mon oeil exercé détecta une erreur dans l’édition allemande de Glamour: on avait confondu le sac Birkin d’Hermès avec un sac Kelly! «Je n’en crois pas mes yeux», me disais-je à moi-même, «un magazine de mode qui commet une méprise aussi grossière!» J’envoyai ma critique par courrier électronique à Peter Hummel, reporter en chef de Glamour à Munich. Je terminai par ces mots: «Prière de ne pas téléphoner, je n’entends pas bien.»"

    "The fashion magazines were piled in the apartment. One day, my trained eye detected an error in the German edition of Glamour: they had confused the Hermes Birkin bag with a Kelly bag! 'I cannot believe my eyes, I thought to myself , 'a fashion magazine who makes such a large mistake!' I sent my complaint via email to Peter Hummel, chief reporter of Glamour in Munich. I concluded with: 'Please do not call, I cannot hear well.'"

  6. I was charmed when she credited her life changing because of a Hermes Birkin.

    FYI, I only posted part of the story. It is what comes after that is incredible. It is like a fairy tale.

    I know she use earnings from her book sales to buy a Hermes Birkin. She carries it around with her a lot. It is her signature.
