HERMES REGRET: Mod Shot, Close Up, Reasons. Why am I not satisfied with my Birkin and what should you consider before buying a Birkin? I wish I saw this video before I bought this expensive Birkin haha. Oh, and this Birkin is currently for sale on my Instagram shop: @CherryTonguesCloset
Owning a Birkin has always been my dream, but I never realized that actually owning it is so different from my fantasy. I’ve always been a somewhat practical buyer when it comes to bags and slgs. I try to only buy things that I would use A LOT, so there is relatively low cost per wear. However, after purchasing this Birkin almost 9 months ago, I realized that I have not worn it more than 2 times! Why? Well, it does not fit my lifestyle. I never appreciated shoulder straps this much, before I got the Birkin. Since Birkins are made with all leather, it is definitely a lot heavier than my LV canvas bags. Sure, it’s gorgeous with all leather, but at the same time, I was not ready for the weight of all leather. In addition, the lack of shoulder strap just makes it so much more impractical for my usage. When I shop, I tend to wear bags that allow me to go hands-free, so I can pick up things and try on things. However, it is almost impossible, or very difficult with the Birkin. Merely lifting my arm up with the Birkin in the crook of my arm is already a struggle. I can’t even imagine carrying a fully-packed Birkin!
Another main reason of why I never reach for the Birkin is because of its size. Yes, the 35 is super popular and highly demanded, but it does not suit my height and weight! I look almost drowned carrying the huge Birkin. It’s like the Birkin is carrying me, and not the other way around. I do not like that!
Lastly, another key reason is: I don’t have any suitable occasion for the Birkin. I don’t carry it to school or to work. I don’t carry it when I shop, due to its heavy weight and lack of shoulder strap. So what else can I use it for? OOTDs? Yes, probably just OOTDs and mod shots, where I can carry an empty bag just for the sake of a photo or video. Unlike many other Youtubers, I do not find the Birkin that desirable anymore, and it is also not as practical as I imagined.
Money down the drain? I was told that the Birkin has good resale value, but since I’m still trying to sell it right now, I can’t comment much on that. Please let me know if you are interested in buying! My instagram shop @ cherrytonguescloset has closeup photos of this bag.
