Another Fake Hermès Birkin

Are you willing to throw $11,500 away for this fake Birkin bag? Definitely not me! You can't really tell that it is a fake from afar but a fake is still a fake ... No matter what. Please study the pictures carefully and understand that there are actually high-grade fake Birkin bags in the market. If you are unsure about a bag, please ask someone to authenticate it before buying. Trust me, it will save you a lot of headache and frustration.

Fake Hermès Birkin

Pheeeew ... I understand that some people want to get their hands on Birkins without the waitlist and without having to splurge on thousands of dollars before being offered one. Actually, it is pretty frustrating especially if you live in Asia where the availability of Birkins is very low. Some people have to wait for years before getting one and some people don't even get it. 

So, the other option is to go to resellers and online websites. I am not saying that all these resellers and websites are not legit. It is just that you have to be extra careful when you decide to buy something from other sources which are not the authorized retailers.

Taking as an example, this gold Birkin 40. For your information, it was listed on a reputable online website. The bag had been authenticated prior listing and passed as an authentic. Yet, this is actually a fake. Take a look at the pictures yourself.

Hermès Tourbillon de Couleurs

Here is another version of the silk necklace with horse head metal pendant. I got this one from Hermes store in Japan. Apparently, the horse head pendant version was reproduced exclusively to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of The difference is only on the color of silk cord that comes with the pendant, i.e. Concours d'Etriers, L'Arbre de Vie and Fleurs Indiennes.

Ladurée x Sanrio Hello Kitty Bag Charm!

I love Laduree. They make delicious macarons and they sell cute accessories too. For Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Laduree has collaborated with Sanrio Hello Kitty to make this cute bag charm. It's been sold out for months and I was happy when the stock has finally been replenished.

If you haven't got yours, you can purchase this bag charm at any Laduree store around the world. I believe they won't stay available for long.

The bag charm comes in a special gift box
