Hermes Birkin in Croc Porosus Lisse

In the race for Forbes’ Most Extravagant Handbags, it comes to be no surprise that Hermes takes the cake. The Hermes Birkin in Croc Porosus Lisse is no boring ‘ole standard issue 35cm Birkin, but made on special order only. The limited bag is set with over 10 carats of shiny diamonds, and with a price tag of nearly $150,000 I am quite confident that the number of orders on this beauty are quite limited as well.

Recently there was a great article in Forbes about the World’s Most Extravagant Handbags. Yours truly was interviewed for the article and is quoted in it. I will post the article later, but will be taking you through some the most extravagant handbags according to Forbes today. At the end of the day, I will post the whole article for you to read and enjoy!

Listed in great company, we were covered on a story that introduced many to the Fashion Blog Stars. We feel lucky to be considered one of the best, and we hope to keep up our reputation!
