I was not a fan of the Chanel Oversized Coco Cabas bag and MK has proven my point that it looks like a giant trash bag. No idea why one needs to carry two bags at the same time but I suppose it is better than, like, one bag. I do love her vintage Hermes Kelly though, nice and worn– the way they look best. My friend, the Comtesse de Chilly, tells me her mother used to stomp on her new Hermes bags (back in the ’60s in Paris) so they’d look old as opposed to nouveau (as in riche). I don’t need to go that far, I have a 5 year old and he drags my Hermes bag across floors, sidewalks, and golf courses so I’m all covered there. I don’t mind scratches or dings on my bags, though. Each one has a treasured memory, like the time I opened the back door of my car and my son decided to kick my birkin as hard as he could on to the sidewalk (he was only 20 months and discovering the art of kicking balls with his father), he clapped and shouted ‘yay, touchdown’. The bag was fine, but the lock has a huge scratch on it– I can’t wait to til he has kids so they can return the favor one day with his things (kidding!).
What do you think looks better? Old or new?
