If I had a nickel for every time we featured a celeb conspicuously leaving a hair salon dressed to the nines…I still wouldn’t be able to afford a Hermes Kelly, but I’d be closer than I am now. Here’s Eva Longoria exiting the Ken Paves Salon in West Hollywood after a low-key evening of primping and styling, with her Hermes Kelly 19cm Replica Kelly Bag in tow. Eva’s quite an Hermes fan (who isn’t?) – she lays claim to a small collection of Birkins (one in tan, one in cobalt blue, and one in fuchsia croc, at last count) as well as a smattering of bags from practically every other must-have designer such as Celine, Balenciaga, and the like. (The list goes on interminably, of course, but I’m assuming you have other things to do today.)
The Hermes Kelly Tote Replica Kelly, tragically, like all the most coveted Hermes bags, is not available to the sprawling internet masses – nor will it ever be, we suspect. Ah, to live within a stone’s throw of an Hermes boutique…

In my search to find all kinds of information about the Birkin, I spoke to some bag blogger, a socialite and a style insider about the myth, and shall I dare mention it, the decline of this Birkin. Additionally, I visited Milan Station in Central, Hong Kong, a second hand luxury bag store that now almost exclusively deals in brand-new Birkins and Kellys. (See their store windows in the accompanying photos).Picking out a hibiscus colored Birkin, I was told that it was completely new, straight from the box, and never been used. I asked where their Birkins come from and a sales associate reacted, “Our clients buy Birkins at Hermes Kelly 40 Replica Replica shops and sell them to us. We have more stock of Birkin bags compared to the Hermes shop,” she explained. They sell the Birkins for 50-100 percent more than the retail price at the Hermes shop and they wouldn’t bargain down because they said there’ll be individuals who will purchase them in asking price. Milan Station and others like it, eliminate the waiting lists for an added price, making Birkins readily available for those who have the money to spare. And lots of people in Hong Kong do.Masako Kumakura, a global communications practitioner who recently moved to China, believes that the Birkin has become a bit démodé especially among the fashionable set. “Too many men and women that are not all that fashionable have it. Plus they carry it everywhere. In Asia, I’ve observed women carry their big Birkins to dinner celebrations. Not chic,” she explained. “Since almost everybody has a Birkin bag, more and more ladies are opting for bags made from exotic skins now, not necessarily Birkins,” shared socialite and Singapore PR maven Olga Iserlis.
