The Promising Partner; My Birkin.

This never ending love affair, ladies, fashion enthusiasts, the minimalists, ethnic chics and everything in between can't stay away. A love affair requires a companion, the partner with a strong and firm hold on you, you look for that companion that is able to promise you years of commitment and loyalty with the smallest trace of disappointment and unpleasant surprises. We want a partner that can give us enough room to help create our space and still be patient enough to let us fill out that space. At the same time we seek that perfect amount of space that doesn't stretch too far else our grip will be inconvenienced. For years and years women have stomped the streets, stayed up at night strategizing over how to snag the perfect partner, the rebels break the rules by getting their hands on more than one. For most ladies, it doesn't just stop at the Chanel classic that is promised to last you through the decades with its timeless design, nope. We also want the Louis Vuitton speedy after all Audrey Hepburn was photographed numerous times with it. How about the Birkin, a moment of silence for the ultimate partner. Say it out loud, ''BIRKIN'. THE ONE that you've waited for all your life to have, the one that keeps you up at night drawing up blue prints on how to convince your credit card company to increase your spending limit.
Let's be honest, we all have a love affair with handbags. Its in our genes, the want to constantly fill our closets and collections with the perfect most and devoted partners from the world of purses goes on for an entire life time. Afterall, we won't be proper females if we didn't act like this.
Over the past weeks, I have been on the hunt and got myself three new partners. Courtesy of Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Hermes'. And my most promising has got to be hands down - The Birkin.
That being said, all three are divine. the have the perfect grip, enough room, promises of good quality, love devotion and a long lasting relationship. What more can a girl ask for?

I Love Lucy. Xxxx.
