The handbag that has become a staple for women that are ”high society” and “well-to-do”…is the Hermes Birkin. Named after 60′s style icon, Jane Birkin, this bag is considered the creme’-de-la-creme’ of accessory items. It is iconic in the eyes (and closets) of many well-known celebrities, public figures, and unknowns who’s serious about their fashion.
The Birkin bag can range anywhere from $9,000 to $150,000. Because of it’s limited distribution, celebrities are put on a “waiting” list. Some celebrities have been known to have waited over a year before they got their bag.
The very exclusive Birkin is not for everyone (as you can see). Only those who can truly afford one should carry one. But, if you got the dough to drop on one of these beauties, by all means, get one! They come in a wide variety of colors, styles, and can be worn with casual clothing or something dressier.
