thursday purseday

friends, i'm going to come right out and say it: this thursday purseday (if on twitter, link up at #thursdaypurseday) is, in my book, the cream of the crop.  the great bambino.  the absolute most amazing bag i have ever laid my eyes on.  something i can only dream to ever own myself (and something victoria beckham owns in every color/style imaginable).

without further ado, i present to you...  the Hermes HAC (Haut a Courrois), aka the “original Birkin”:


from forbes.com: "This bag, inspired by French actress Jane Birkin, can fetch between $6,000 and $15,000, depending on what grade of leather or exotic skin it is made of.

"But it is as nothing compared to its more exotic sister, the Crocodile Birkin. Price: $120,000. What makes this bag so expensive is not just the leather used but also the 10 carats of diamonds set in white gold and placed on its clasp. There are only two such bags available for purchase in the world."

ahhh.... a girl can dream, can't she?
