The Worth of the Birkin Bag; It’s quite the investment

“It’s not a bag, it a f%*king Birkin!” – Samantha, Sex in the City
In one episode, Samantha really wants a red Hermes Birkin bag and will do anything to get it. In 2001 when this episode aired; The wait list for an authentic Birkin was two years and cost well over a $5,000. Samantha uses Lucy Liu’s name to try to get the coveted bag.
Today, the same bag retails for $10,000. Exotic skin versions can reach into six figures. The French luxury retailer says price increases reflect the rising costs of leather and silk, the bag’s unique make and handmade craftsmanship, as well as the name!

A site called “Baghunter”conducted research on the value and return of the Birkin ; and well you shall be tempted to make an investment. Researchers compared the Birkin with the S&P 500 and gold to see how their value has changed over the past 35 years. They found that the bags have increased by 14.2%, blowing both the S&P 500 (8.65%) and gold (-1.5%) out of the water. The research further shows that while there’s risk involved in investing in the S&P 500 or gold—both fluctuate constantly—you’ll make money no matter when you cash in on your Birkin Bag. 2015 was a record-breaking year, as a pink crocodile version sold for $223,000 at auction.
 Back in 2001 up until a couple of years ago it was near impossible to get any color other than brown or get one at all. Now trustworthy authentic sites have come into show. TheRealReal is an extremely trusted one and you can now Finance, yes Finace a Birkin for as low as less than $999 a month. Do yourself a favor honey and make that investment because it will show for itself in years and dollars.

After applying bronzer and a pop of peach blush, Mario lightly spritzed Kim’s complexion with Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist to make her skin look even more lit from within.
To make Kim’s eyes look sultry and bronzed, Mario swept Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow across the lid. He then applied a copper shade on the outer corners of the eye and across the lower lashline to ‘make her eyes pop’.
For her perfectly nude lip, Mario used a liner first and then layered Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual over it.
