I think that many YT collections are reflective of the pervasive sentiment within the "luxury community" including tPF where we should only buy the classics with resell and "investment" value being at the forefront of our minds. Sure, it's boring and uninspired, but so is the state of the "luxury community" right now.
Also, ten or some odd years ago, fashion bloggers/vloggers did this as truly a passion hobby. They just so happened to end up making money. But nowadays all these new up and coming influencers are going into it as a career.

The last trip was right before the pandemic. She went FSH the day of arrival as she was confirmed appointment with single try. She did not make any purchase.

This trip, we just arrived yesterday and did not get a chance to visit any Hermes yet.

Of course, getting appointment does not mean guarantee of a bag. We would have to wait and see how it goes tomorrow. Still I am somewhat jealous she gets appointments quite easily, especially when I know others have tried many times more.
Thank you. That means she had made some purchases before the pandemic.

I learned of Erica through my sister who regularly watches her channel. I remember sis was annoyed at the fact how Erica never explains how she got that appointment.

I chuckled a bit when I saw how Erica showing off her gift. I’m sorry but I just can’t picture her actually using it. I bet she does not like how they heat stamped her initials and now she can’t sell or regift. I mean this is a lady who sent her only child to a community college, calling it an economically smarter choice.

Moving on topic, for those who happened to be curious of my attempts, I got rejected for Friday and Saturday as well. It seems they no longer send rejection texts as I only received emails. While twice isn’t much of a try, I am starting to wonder, why my email addy from first try seems “blocked.” It was great that I could still register with a different addy but that makes me question that they really must do something with my real addy! And catching up with this thread it seems pre pandemic purchase history seems to be gone for many so does this mean I am starting out again? Yikes!!

Interestingly, my sister received THE TEXT last night, welcoming her for tomorrow’s appointment. This appointment system works odd. They say it’s random but is for real? On her last trip, she got it with just single try. In fact, she has never gone past three tries to secure appointment! If it’s really random, I think I would make my sister buy me Powerball tickets from now on.
Lol your comment made laugh, the smarter economically choice is to stop buying all these trendy bags, that are worn for one season or two max.

I particularly like and follow @j_que_ on IG. I like how she mixes and matches different pcs. Not all of the items she style are high end luxury or full on logos. Her style is believable and contemporary.

On the other hand: most influencers are just trying hard. The clothes you wear from top to bottom has a visible logo doesnt make it stylish.

My favorite YT influencers/micro-influencers rn are Tiwadidthat, Jacira De Matos, and HayaGlamazon. Tiwadidthat recently posted his H Paris experience, he managed to get a Kelly and had some good tips. Jacira makes great luxury videos including H and is always lovely and positive. HayaGlamazon makes different luxury videos and i love her Hermes videos as she often discusses H stores, tips, “birkin bait” lol etc.

There's also been a massive influx of TikTok influencers who post and share their Hermes journeys - it's been a pretty explosive platform because it reaches a lot of people who have either have little to no information about luxury goods, or are also interested but don't know how to get into the game. Some are @birkintrash, @lille.hoang, and @audreypeters.

I just found tiwadidthat last month. He’s so funny. Checked out the other two from your recommendation. I really enjoy microinfluencers more. Way more authentic.

Was this meant to sound elitist? Boy this comment rubs me the wrong way...

Haha yes he is! He doesn’t post enough imo lol. I agree, I think they’re more genuine and i find most of them make videos out of pure enjoyment and not for the monetization.
