So I have been neglecting my blog… yes I know this, you don’t have to point it out to me, lol. Anyway, I am going to try to get back in the blog groove b/c I actually have a few things that I would like to share. I am going to start off with a book review of Bringing Home the Birkin by Michael Tonello. It is a memoir of his adventures as a reseller of all things Hermés, especially the infamous Birkin bag. I have to say that this was the book that I had been waiting to read all summer! Not that I really had to read this exact title, but in the sense that I wanted something intriguing, and funny, and intelligent all wrapped in one. I kept reading these titles that advertised all of this but totally fell flat for me so when I picked up this book I was pleasantly surprised. On top of the previously motioned qualities, it’s EXTREMELY interesting for any fashionista, or for that matter anyone who knows any of the rumors and tales of the exclusivity of the Birkin bag. Tonello effortless leads you through his life and Hermés learning curve with wit, humor, compassion, adventure, and tons of information. Seriously I can’t recommend it enough so just stop by your local library or bookstore and pick up a copy already!
