"Bringing Home the Birkin"

IMG_0650

One of my favourite light hearted fashion novels is "Bringing Home the Birkin" by Michael Tonello.
It is about a man who unlocks the secret Hermes code.
Many women wait for years and years on a waiting list of unknown length to finally be "the chosen one" who gets to purchase a highly coveted Birkin handbag. Michael on the other hand discovered a technique that allowed him to purchase one in almost every Hermes store he set foot in, without waiting more than five minutes never mind five years.The journey follows him through comic interactions, firm friendships, tragic turns and shopping sprees of epic proportions.
Who would have thought that a book about handbags could lead you on such an emotional roller coaster? Definitely a worthwhile read!
Here for you are some pictures of myself with my very own piece of Hermes treasure.
The Gold togo leather Birkin 35.
I kept my look quite sleek and casual with high-waisted jeans from Topshop, a frilled shirt from Identity boutique and a hint of leopard print with my River Island heels.
I also added some Hermes accessories with an orange clic-clac bangle and an "H" belt!
Hope you like!

I shall be writing my next blog post from the beautiful Greek Island of Crete as I am off on holidays on Friday for a fortnight! I am looking forward to taking lots of pictures and sharing my holiday experience with you.
If you have ever been to Crete and have any advice on good restaurants etc. please let me know!
Thanks!
