Hermes Crocodile Birkin 35cm Pelouse

Hermès Porosus Crocodile Birkin 35cm Pelouse

As someone who is obsessed with fashion, I (try to) understand why some pieces cost they way they do: exclusivity, fine attention to details, luxurious materials, impeccable tailoring, exquisite craftsmanship, so on and so forth.

Now. I love Hermès and all but I have never, ever, EVER seen anything as outrageous as THIS in my entire life. Ladies and gays, meet the US$97,000 (NINETY SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLAR) crocodile Hermès Birkin bag.

OK I lied. I think I saw a croc Birkin up for auction at Doyle New York a long, long time ago for much less than that but it has diamonds in it.

I know it’s crocodile and yes, I know it’s an Hermès Birkin, but come on.

Why do I find the price point outrageous other than the fact that it doesn’t even have precious stones in it?

I dunno, just think of what one could do with $97,000.

I, knowing that I probably would NEVER have the chance to know what it’s like to have 97 grand in this lifetime (ok… ninety seven cents, yes), would probably:

  • buy a gorgeous, well-endowed husband from the Baltics
  • adopt six kids of different nationality and colour
  • buy a pick up truck
  • buy a whopping 41 acres of land in the glorious, exotic American town of Houlton, Maine (where gay marriage is now allowed) for the bargain price of US$19,800
  • buy a horse named Lily
  • buy a dog named Fifi
  • buy a cat named Pipi
  • buy a naked houseboy named Kiki.

I betcha my brown ass I’d still have plenty of change left.

After a year, I’ll sell the whole lot (husband, kids, house and pets) on eBay and I’d prolly get triple or quadruple my investment.

Enough daydreaming. Ninety seven thousand dollars? You’ve got to be kidding me.

Just sayin’.

A Trip to Theodore’s

A Trip to Theodore’s

When it rains, it pours. We had a storm here in the Philippines this week but the rain didn’t stop me from getting out of the house. I have so much work on my plate at the moment if I don’t dedicate a whole day to myself then who knows when I’m able to accommodate basic necessities in life such as getting a haircut.

Theodore's Store Denim Markdown Event

Before going to a shoot in the afternoon, I popped by the store Theodore’s where they’re having a huge denim markdown sale going on. Get any two pairs of jeans from their stock for about P6995 (roughly around $150) for both pairs. I thought it was a good deal. I think it was last year when I enforced a personal policy of not paying more than a hundred bucks for a pair of jeans. That’s why I love Cheap Monday. I mean come on, it’s denim!  Also, I get more compliments from people around the world when I wear my cheap-ass jeans. You know those black jeans I ripped using a box cutter? $20 from Folded & Hung!

Anyway, click click click!

Peter Som vs Surface to Air

Peter Som vs Surface to Air

I’ll be the first one to say that gray isn’t really my favourite colour. I know many people consider it a staple because of its neutrality. I, on the other hand, for years, thought gray is dull and boring… until now. I don’t know what it is but I’m currently having a gray obsession. I saw this Peter Som top over at the Kirna Zabete website yesterday night and for some reason, I can’t for the life of god remove it from my mind. Yes I know it’s a gray sweatshirt but it looks very luxurious and I love the crystal embellishment. Unfortunately Kirna Zabete only have a size large left.
