Happy anniversary Birkin

The best investment: Birkin Handbag

Today is the 7. anniversary of my Shoulder Birkin, and I can tell this was the best investment ever. Have a look at the beauty over the years. It was such a wise decision to not buy those many, many trendy bags, which just look last season right a month after you bought them.

Hermès just never fails to amaze when it comes to leather and silk.

My birthday present to my dear bag is to clean her carefully just with a soft cloth and polish the hardware, and then go out to dinner with “her”.

This bag comes with lock, keys, clochette, a sleeper for the bag, box, and the raincoat.
