When Good Birkins Happen to Bad People

Taking your Birkin to a place it should never go: the grocery store.


Hermès, we have a problem: The Birkin used to be a mystical creature. Much like unicorns or polar bears, they were limited in population, and spotting one meant that you were in the presence of something truly magical and unique. Now everyone and their fucking dog’s dog carries one, and I am having a hard time with this. Isn’t there a 10 year-wait list, or a pre-requisite checklist of some sort? Back in the olden days, you used to have to have won an Academy Award, fucked someone who’s won an Academy Award, or be an Olsen twin, Jane Birkin, or royalty in order to carry a Birkin. Nowadays, it seems like all you have to do is go to some street corner and visit a Birkin truck where I guess they’re giving them out to anyone dressed in white skinny jeans! I don’t want to have to have my Birkin collection cryogenically frozen until 2069 when they’ll be chic again, but I will do it if need be. Please Hermès Gods, put a stop to this! xo, Babe.

    Obsessssssssed with this post.

    Uhmmm I’m sure if EVERYONE has a Birkin bag, 2/3 of them are fake. And what’s wrong with a hard working lady saving up and having one? I’m pretty sure you worked hard (I mean your knees must really hurt, right?) for all your Birkin “collection”? Unless you ordered them on iOffer. Get over yourself, you’re not that special or chic.

        HOMY YOU GUYS, BREATHE! Because you’re clearly already worked up, and this probably won’t make it any better but… Babe Walker is not a real person. 

        Read it again.  Breathe.  Digest that breath.  Remove your fist from your ass.  Move on.

      You do not get it. Please leave, and take your faux-Birkin with you.

    Lol so true as for the Longchamp pliages. Bitches, please.

    Maybe it’s not real just a good fake-I hope. Don’t think someone who can buy a real one would be grocery shopping themselves.

    And surely not eating that food she’s buying.

      I do my own grocery shopping and I have a Birkin, and two beach houses.

    @just saying’ clearly babe does not get on her knees, so stop trying to take away the credit from the true professionals. Plus we have proof that this babe character knows exactly what she’s talking about when it comes to fashion. Punn intended.

    @yawning. Why are you even responding to people and telling them to not care when you clearly do and are trying to make it seem like you don’t. If you didn’t you wouldn’t have even read babe’s post to begin with. Stop hating yourself for loving babe. And yes I know that it’s a fictional book but that does not mean the authors don’t know fashion. Go buy a cat because you’re clearly overweight and lonely.
