I have been waiting for a black birkin, togo or clemence, silver hardware, in the 35 size for a long time now (almost a year), and finally got a call a couple of hours ago that it was here and to pick it up. I cant believe it. I have wanted one of these guys for about fifteen years now. I am glad I passed on the blue jean kelly on Saturday - I suppose this is my lesson that you should always have patience and wait for what you really want. I am headed off to the gym now, but I had to share this great news with you guys who have been encouraging me to have patience - it was good advice.
