First of all, huge thanks to the wonderful, generous, and helpful folks in this H community that help us on our journeys to our vintage beauties.
Let me introduce my 1960s chocolate box calf Kelly. I’d been looking for the perfect vintage K and just so happened to come across this beauty with my very own initials—my unicorn bag. Ugh, I could have cried …
Once I had @bababebi
authenticate her and she arrived safely from Paris, she needed some much needed TLC—boy, was she dry. Looking for alternative solutions to the H Spa, I discovered the famous @docride
and her YouTube channel (can we talk about her videos and how she’s the Bob Ross of luxury handbags??).
I decided to send Doc a couple bags for a facelift, including my K; she brought her back to life (even getting rid of the smell), sourced and dyed a strap to match, and upgraded my clochette.
Here she is in all her (new-to-me) glory. So, so in love. (Who doesn’t love a good before/after?!)
