So when I went into Marc Jacobs to buy my boots, all the salesgirl hovered around my Birkin. They asked to touch it and hold it. (I said yes, but don't think for a minute I wasn't cringing on the inside). I suppose because I'm young they thought I was approachable. Anyway, we talked about the bag and of course the price question came up. I kind of just nodded at their guesstimates. Also, I was wearing my thin Collier de Chien belt in Marron Fonce box leather with gold hardware over a Chloe sweater and a black skirt. I felt like a powerhouse fashionista that day. I think it was the belt mixed with the attention Ms. B was getting. That, and I was buying new boots (what girl doesn't feel powerhouse buying new shoes?) Share stories of how Hermes has affected your shopping days! I want to know if any of you get attention, harassed, better service, delusions of grandeur, etc. My belt/Birkin combo was just..I don't know! I mean, my other designer clothes are nice & gets compliments but WOW, Hermes just sort of works it, you know?
