I never mentioned what my husband got me for Christmas because.. he hadn’t gotten me anything yet 🙂 you see, during the holidays we were in the midst of planning our trip to Europe when he asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I mentioned maybe we should wait for Paris since we’re already planning this costly trip. The vacation was really, already, our Christmas gift to each other. He obliged and I patiently waited.
Well, I’m not gonna lie, I spent hours, days, weeks
scheming planning out which bags to buy – I knew I wanted to come back with at least two (the bag Chris would buy me and something I would buy for myself). I fell head over heels for the Hermes Herbag silhouette but the style itself is quite illusive. For those who have yet to venture into Hermes (especially in Paris) in dreams of finding the bag you desire, in a nutshell, it’s chaotic and incredibly stressful. You often have to deal with ridiculous lines, potentially snobby service, and you will almost always have to visit multiple stores, multiple times in a single day. Chances that they have the bag you want in any color is already incredibly slim, let alone, the color you desire. No, they will not check other stores for you and no, they don’t know what they’re going to get or when they will get it… And yes, you’re spending a small fortune for all of this turmoil. It’s very frustrating similar to shopping for Chanel… it takes a certain level of endurance but gosh, is it worth it!
Well, as you might have seen on instagram, my Superman bought me my it bag in the color I wanted from my dream brand while we were in Paris! The ordeal itself was quite serendipitous. He has a knack for these kinds of things 😉 and yes, I’m one incredibly lucky girl!!
