If you watched Newlyweds back in the day like I did (and I did it without shame, thankyouverymuch), then you know that Jessica Simpson is an inveterate bag lover just like the rest of us. She toted a lot of multicolore Louis Vuitton at the time because that was the hot new thing, but now that Jessica has gotten older (and richer – that shoe line she has is no joke, y’all), she’s made a bit of an upgrade: an orange Hermes Birkin. Although based on the rest of the photo, it’s kind of refreshing to see that Jessica sits around the house in the same pajamas she had back then.
Technically, Simpson’s fiance Eric Johnson is the person who made the upgrade for her, as a gift for her 31st birthday on Sunday night. Although, as gossip sites love to point out, Eric probably bought it with Jessica’s money. But that’s fine, because she’s so stinking rich that it hardly matters where the five-figure layout for this kind of present came from. So congratulations and happy birthday to Jessica – I wonder if this is her first Birkin? If so, what made her wait so long?
