Our friends from Heritage Auctions are at it again. Have a Holy Grail Handbag in your mind? An exotic? Some Hermes? Exotic Hermes, maybe? Or exotic…anything? Those are the bags that dreams are made of, naturally, and Heritage Auctions is in the business of making those dreams come true. In the Heritage Auctions Handbag & Luxury Accessories December Auction on December 4 in Dallas, the selection of dream bags up for grabs is truly mind-blowing.

Lately Rue La La has really been turning out some seriously good sales, and today is no exception. Ladies, get your plastic ready – an entire sale dedicated to the pure luxury of Hermes launches today at 11:00 AM EST. We are bringing you an early preview of our fave picks. The best part about this sale is that it includes tons of accessories and random goodies (for men and women!) at varying price points, so gifting the luxury lover in your life is a no brainer.

Quick poll, ladies: if you’re lucky enough to own an authentic Hermes Birkin, would you ever let it touch the ground? Oliva Palermo’s black Birkin looks downright dejected carving a space for itself on the NYC pavement. Shouldn’t she just enlist her hot German model boyfriend to stand a respectful 3 paces behind her and act as her official Birkin handler?

And now, here’s an adorable little something to get your mind off this increasingly frustrating Frankenstorm aftermath. Gossip Girl‘s Kelly Rutherford was recently spotted balancing a teensy Maltese on top of her Hermes Evelyne bag – though from the looks of it, he could’ve fit neatly inside. (It’s a well known fact among toy dog owners that toy breeds love to go for walks…but hate walking.)

Kelly is seen wearing her Etoupe Evelyne cross-body style here – which is the perfect way to style it when you’re motoring across town with a cup of joe and puppy in tow.

Nothing says “keepin’ it real” like a pair of sneaks, sunglasses, a bright orange tracksuit, and a matching crocodile Hermes Birkin bag. Jennifer Lopez and boy toy Casper Smart were also keeping it exceptionally casual while doing a little shopping in London this week. Nothing says “casual” like head-to-toe Tangerine Tango.

The couple reportedly snagged some alone time at Harrods while J.Lo’s kids chilled back at the muy upscale Claridge’s Hotel.

Three of my favorite things have come together to create the ultimate triple-match made in heaven. Our friends at Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions worked together to source an amazing array of vintage Hermes items. Since we covered a large gallery of celebrities and their Hermes Birkins earlier today, so it’s fitting to follow up on how you can buy the Hermes items of your dreams, as we all know it’s typically a feat.

There are certain bags that celebrities, no matter who they are, just love to carry. We already showed you an amazing round up of celebrities and their Celine Luggage Totes, and today we are breaking down the celebs that love, covet, and carry Hermes Birkins. The Hermes Birkin is not only the ultimate timeless classic, but it’s also the bag that celebrities have to wait to get just like the rest of us.

In all the hustle and bustle of getting through the end of the fashion season, we’ve still got a few collections that we didn’t get a chance to write about but we think you should see. The first, of course, is Hermes Spring 2013Hermes is essential viewing to any handbag lover, even if it’s not your style or anywhere near your budget.

I love crocodile in light colors. Especially when it comes to Hermes bags, black or other dark neutrals seem to be what most people tend to buy when they buy croc, and I can understand that compulsion; crocodile is enormously expensive, particularly from a brand like Hermes, and versatility is important when making that kind of investment. So are concerns about wear and tear, and dark colors tend to mask use a bit better.

Get excited, everyone: we have lots of vintage and pre-owned Hermes loveliness to show you to speed up the end of you work week. Our friends at Rue La La are having another one of their highly anticipated From the Reserve sales starting tomorrow morning at 11 a.m., and it is chock full of all the Hermes goodies that you could ever dream of.
