Probably one of the dreams of most bag hags out there is to have BIG “H” part of their collection. Who’s BIG “H”? Bags? H? Any idea? You’ve probably guessed it already! Some would consider them the big boss when it comes to bags. It’s…
HERMES, of course! 😀
And from my title itself, yes, it has arrived in my closet! Having this orange box has always been a dream. Who wouldn’t love that BIG, luxe, orange box?! But of course, it’s not all about the box. It’s what’s in it. 😀 😀 😀
To set your expectations straight, it ain’t Queen B (as in the queen of all bags, Birkin). Can’t afford! LOL! In fact, I can’t even see myself buying one ever. I’d rather get something else. I won’t deny. It’s a dream. BUT I’d probably have one if I have overflowing moolah. Haha!
Anyway, I’ve been searching for this Hermes bag for sooo long. When I went to Europe, God knows how much sacrifice I did just to look for this bag. I visited all the Hermes stores in every city I went to- from Rome, to Florence, to Nice, to Madrid, to Barcelona, etc., etc. My mom kept on complaining non-stop. She thought we were wasting our time looking for something that wasn’t available everywhere! Well, true enough, it was no where to be found. I was so desperate, which is why I ended up with this bag.
About two weeks after I arrived, my friend told me that her aunt who just came back from Europe as well is selling this Hermes bag. And to my surprise, it was the bag that I was looking for! OMG! When I saw the color, oh gawd, I die!!! I was so afraid to lose it that it was considered sold after a few days of pondering! Haha! I just felt a little bad since I could have gotten it at a cheaper price. I was already there! Ugh! Well, as I look at my new baby, every bit of that mark up I paid was all worth it! 😀 Anyway, enough of my story. Meet my new baby…
Hermes Herbag in Red Orange
Everything could have been perfect about this bag except for the leather. It can easily get scratched that extra care is a must! Oh, and like the Hermes Kelly or Birkin bags, getting stuff inside the bag can take some effort. Well, the new Herbag may not come with an extra canvas anymore, but what I love about this new one is the little zip pocket at the back. It comes in handy especially for the things (like my phone) that I need every now and then. I don’t have to open the bag that often anymore. 😀 But all these cons can easily be forgotten as I look at the bag… The combination of the dark brown leather and red orange canvas makes my heart melt. 😀 More photos in my next outfit posts to come! 😀
