Three things that define being a female in the twenty-first century:
♥A Hermes Birkin
At upwards of $5,000.00, however, I refuse to wait years upon years to possess the means to finally fulfill number three; thus, I have decided to invest the $48.00 (mere pocket change in comparison to the original) to stake my claim in the Olivia Satchel (pictured at right) from Shop Suey Boutique.
Named after the Birkin-obsessed New York City socialite and The City star Olivia Palermo, the Olivia Satchel is everything the girl-about-town with an affinity for the finer things in life desires, sans the hefty price tag.
Crafted out of a textured faux leather which adds a pebbled pattern to the surface, Olivia is every bit as classic and classy as the beauteous Birkin. Silver hardware corresponds magically with the all black setting. A magnetic snap closure and real working lock and key give you the ability to bolt your belongings the same way you would secure the deep, dark secrets you write about in your dear diary. A tantalizing tassel-adornment that swings to and fro like a trendy pendulum when on the go. And within the abyss-like depths of the carryall lie snazzy pockets for your cell phone and sunglasses, making organization a complete and utter cinch.
If you must know, I already have many divine plans for little Olivia.
♥Afternoons spent relaxing in a quiet Starbucks corner, non-stop White Chocolate Mocha’s in hand.
♥Evenings spent making eyes at a handsome boy over a divine candlelit dinner.
♥Weekend shopping excursions in the City.
It’s impossible not to have a wondrous time with such a chic and affordable accessory by your side.
I am woman…hear my handbag roar.
Tell me, darlings…will you be a big spender and go for the Birkin, or be thrifty and spring for the Olivia?
