Dear TPF members,

It happened...out of the blue! I got offered my first Birkin.

After diving into Chanel a couple of years ago, the next step was Hermes. As I learned more about the craftsmanship that is Hermes, I decided to purchase a vintage Kelly. I found an amazing deal for a gold Kelly and that's how it all started. Then, Hermes opened the DC store right in front of my office...it was a sign from the heavens! [emoji847] I started going in once in while to browse gorgeous silks and shoes and that's how I met my lovely SA. I found my signature scent at Hermes, some lovely twillies for my vintage Kelly, and then the perfect black flats.

One day, my SA asked me what my dream bag would be. I immediately answered: a Birkin 30, rouge Casaque! That would be perfection [emoji7]

A few months went by, life got busy, and I was traveling quite a bit, so didn't think about my dream bag, much less go into the store.

Then...out of the blue...I get THE call! I was across the country for work, but my lovely SA said she would hold the Birkin for me until I got back. How amazing is she!?!
The dilemma then began...I thought my dream RC would be with PHW, but the bag that was waiting for me had GHW. Naturally, I came to this amazing forum for thoughts and opinions, and I am so glad I did! To all my dear TPF members who responded to my prior thread....THANK YOU!

So my story continues...I got on the red-eye, got to DC, went to work almost straight from the airport and then headed to Hermes. There she was...it was love at first sight. I knew I had to have it. I called my DH and sent him a pic. His response: "oh it's red like the one you really want." [emoji7] How cute.

I rushed home like a kid on Christmas eve....ready to open the most amazing present!

Thanks so much, bagittude! I couldn't agree more! RC is just stunning....red perfection in my humble opinion and the GHW makes I so classy and elegant. Feeling so lucky to have gotten this beauty [emoji7][emoji7][emoji7]
