The story of the Birthday Birkin is somewhat unconventional and has a tipsy turvy tale as to how she ultimately made her way to me.
I am going to share the story in snippets of detail from my IG @pursebop
I’ll share a little more detail here… it was my sister’s first real Hermes experience so it was very special to be able to share my opinions, knowledge and well-formed loyalty with the brand. We spent a considerable amount of time with our lovely SA to go through everything. I gave her an overview of all my H obsessions, wish lists, and dream baggies, LOL.
The day of departure I received a call in my hotel from our SA to check in on my sisters thoughts about the BE (blue electric) beauty. She also slipped in that she might have a surprise for us when we came in. “a surprise….eeekkksss!” I hustled over to my sister’s suite to share the exciting news…I’ll preface that I was Hermes content as I had just opened and revealed my Anemone Kelly (aptly named Miss BopTalk) just the day before in Ottawa during the tulip festival.
Let’s take a brief stroll down memory lane below…
The magic of an Hermes Birkin reveal began promptly at the boutique. I was so excited for my sister as it was her first experience. Could this possibly be her first B? We were both so captivated by the unwrapping and anticipation of what we were about to see that I forgot to document any of the unveiling! Also, to be honest, at no point was I contemplating another bag for myself so soon, if what was to be unsealed was in fact beautiful, it would be my sister’s first B. I would just be lucky enough to share the moment with her. Since, her birthday was just around the corner the timing couldn’t be better.
The birthday Birkin was magnificent, saturated with deep vivid color, togo leather, the perfect size for her first B… and GHW to boot! We were smitten!
It was a mighty fine afternoon… a blue electric Evelyn & a beautiful Birkin all in one day! Hermes dreams do come true.
