My first Birkin!!

  1. So I have been dreaming of a birkin for years now, but couldn't fathom spending so much money on a bag. After years of buying Chanel and bearing its price increases, I thought it may be time to finally take the leap. My DH attempted to surprise me with a birkin last Christmas, only to be turned down by a not so nice SA who told him flat out "you can't just ask for a birkin." So I thought I may never get this bag. Last month, we were in Paris for 5 nights. I read so much about Paris and birkins on here and actually believed I would take one home. But I found out quickly that it wasn't that easy. Even with 3 trips to the stores each day, I came home empty handed.

    So my DH finally said we're going to have to play the game if I'm going to get this bag and he said it may take a while. Two weeks ago, we went to the boutique and met a nice SA. We bought a tie from him and I asked him about wallets and bracelets but they didn't have the colors I wanted, but he said he would call me if any of the colors I mentioned came in. He asked me what else I wanted and I felt it was my opening to say birkin!! So I told him and he asked me what color and he wrote it down. On Friday, my DH bought a watch. And lo and behold...2 days later I get a call that a birkin had come in!!!

    So here she is...:smile::smile::smile:
