Interestingly enough these bags go for so much money on second hand sites!

I think Hermes bags are very elegant - especially the Kelly! - but I can't justify the astronomical prices nor playing the "game" to get access. I've also moved away from designer bags in general. I was crazy into Balenciaga and Celine back in the day and had a healthy sized collection, but I sold most of them about 6 years ago. I think I have 2 Bals and 2 Celines left, which I only use occasionally. I also have an ancient and very worn-out Chanel that I bought off Ebay 15 years ago but have never used even once. These days I'd rather use simple nondescript bags for everyday wear (think army surplus satchels and Etsy leather bags) and save all my pennies for jewelry. 8)

Ok. So I know this because my daughter follows him. He identifies as a gay male who enjoys hair and make up etc.

He has a whole empire/thing but he has also been in a lot of trouble lately regarding slurs and racism I think.

She and I watched his break up video from his bed, etc.

Lotta drama with him.

Clearly he loves pink.

I am intrigued by them. Why the obsession and exclusivity? Marketing strategy? I would be so paranoid when I use it. $10K for a bag. I could not let anyone even breathe on it. I think the smaller Birkins are so charming, but they are ridiculously expensive and hard to get. If I had a chance to buy one around the $3K range, I would. At $10K, I would get jewelry.
I always think about the time my son spilled an entire cup of coffee on a brand new purse. It's a lot harder to destroy jewelry.

I might as well add some of mine here.

That's quite the collection! The pinkish purple is fabulous.

That's the only way I could get my hands on one I'm sure.

@jaysonsmom @GliderPoss

CardiB and her collection keeps popping up in my newsfeed. And according to Saweety if a man can't buy you a Birkin he's not worth having around. So it would certainly appear that the bag is a must-have in the rap world, making it even more desirable to the average person.

@doberman coffee on a new purse?! Was it totally ruined?
Basically yes. There was a stain on the leather. I cleaned it up as well as I could, but the purse was never the same. If that happened to a $15k purse I'd probably have a heart attack.

Sigh...there's a lovely red Birkin on Tradesy for $9k. But my husband thinks the prices of my LV purses are ridiculous. If I showed him a Birkin he'd think I've lost my mind.
