She’s giving us that main character energy. Too much Hermès spice for the original Netflix’s Bling Empire, Dorothy Wang has moved up and onward to star in her own spin-off, Bling Empire New York City. We’ve admired Dorothy for her fabulous outfits, fierce personality, loyalty, integrity and most of all her love for handbags.
Dorothy started her reality TV career as the Queen B of The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. (Hey E!, can we get a reboot please?) But when it comes to Hermès, she knows best. After all Dorothy’s prescription to all is: “A Birkin a day keeps the doctor away.”
1. What was your first Hermès bag?
I actually had great beginner’s luck and my “first” Hermès handbag were actually two Kellys! When I was 18, the summer after high school, I was in Paris with my family and the boutique offered me two 28 cm Kellys with silver hardware. One signature Hermès orange and one was apple green! I haven’t worn them in so long but I love the memory! My first born babies, twins!
2. What is your favorite bag? And why?
My favorite that I have right now is a navy cargo Birkin 25. I like that it’s a little funkier and different aesthetic from the typical classic Birkins. Also maybe because she lives in LA and not in my current NY closet and I’ve only worn it a few times. It’s true when they say distance always makes the heart grow fonder.
3. What did you wish you knew before starting your handbag journey?
I think when I was younger it was really a “collect them all” type of mentality and just buying as many as were offered to you. I’ve definitely grown to be more selective and specific about what I want now.
4. What’s next on your bag wishlist?
The Rock Birkin or a Crocodile Birkin 25 or Mini Kelly.
5. Are you stickers on or stickers off?
Omg stickers off! But I will admit sometimes I am horrified to find some leftover stickers on my bags! There are really so many and quite hard to get off, especially with nails. I’m typically always rushing to get out the door, it seems so now I ask my sales associates to remove them for me at purchase!
