When the movie Blue Jasmine first came out, we just loved the costuming, especially Cate Blanchett’s character for which she just won the Academy Award for Best Actress, as Jasmine. Not only did we think it was a brilliant movie, but Jasmine was dressed so exquisitely, from the camel Hermes Birkin bag, to the Chanel jacket and necklace, Cate pulled it all off so well.
In nearly every scene her Birkin played a role and the popularity of the camel Hermes Birkin bag has soared as a result.
We have written numerous posts about our celebrity friends who carry their Birkin’s well, including Jane Birkin, herself. Look at Jane!
and some who haven’t done such a good job, like Kim Kardashian’s new Birkin baby bag which we think was taken a little too far.
We love the Hermes Birkin bag. We’ve just added a new category called “Birkin” in the blog so you can see who you know that’s carrying a Birkin around town.
We saw this tee-shirt and thought “hmmmm…that’s one way to attract a monied man”…right?
Actually, we think if a brand new Hermes Birkin bag isn’t in the budget, the second-hand market for Birkins is an excellent way to go. Birkin bags hold their value, but be careful…you want to buy a used Birkin from a reliable and knowledgeable source. We have heard that JaneFinds is the best place to go to score a gently-used Birkin that some woman likely sold to gather cash. Her loss, you gain? That’s where I’d go first.
