A dreadfully long waitof two years after you manage to get your name on the waiting list after stepping into an hermes shop for the zillionth time keeping your fingers crossed. Or worse still buying a whole load of hermes items to please your SA so she can judge you are important enough to be waitlisted. After hearing horror stories like this i wonder if its true???? Is it??? I love the classic birkin but dont own any the only reason being above. I have a couple of hermes accessories but i always hear the sas say waitlist is closed why?? because I'm nt a regular shopper ? Cause the items were bought by my husband. and i got them cause i genuinely liked them. Cause i dont believe in buying items to please an sa. . I have been a chanel girl till now...what do i do if i wanted a birkin?? Can you please advice i stay in singapore..
