Back in February we posted pictures of Kim Kardashian carrying her Hermes Birkin not only to the beach, but also placing her bag right in the sand. Many of us gasped at the site of a $10,000 bag being plopped into a pile of sand, me included. I find myself to be so meticulous when it comes to taking care of my bags. Maybe I have it truly wrong, maybe I should carry my expensive bags to the beach and let them get a little dirty. After all, Kim isn’t the only one that does it… a famous designer does as well.

Hermès 35cm Birkin Review

Yesterday New York Fashion Week began and I, like majority of attendees, scrambled around the house and pillaged through my closet trying to find something appropriate to wear. During my closet frenzy, Vlad amusedly asked me if all women think we need more clothes in our closets. The answer was a resounding ‘”YES, YES WE DO”.

When not dealing with fashion week and the corresponding sartorial pressure, I am not nearly as concerned with my clothing choices, after all, I dress myself around my handbag.  I am the handbag queen.

In effort to streamline my Fashion Week choices – I decided to apply my day-t0-day ‘dress around the bag’ theory. I opted to start off with a sure-thing, my black Hermes Birkin and headed off to the shows: Nicholas K, BCBG, and Chadwick Bell. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a 388 cashmere top, red and black floral Mink Pink skirt, a sick Oscar de la Renta coin necklace, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

The moral of day 1: Curating the outfit around the handbag never fails.

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. (more…)

The Hermes Birkin is synonymous with classic. But what do you think about Hermes’ take on the Birkin Club for Spring/Summer 2011? The bag features stripes (some refer to them as racing stripes). Tri-colored, we think the colors are gris, perle and Mykonos blue lizard.

The overall vibe of the Hermes Birkin Club has a younger feel to it – something meant to be seen as more fun, with even a tad of a sporty finish. Do you prefer the classic Birkin or the Birkin Club?
