Tommy Ton, from Jack & Jill blog, hit the streets around New York Fashion Week to photo journal what was happening outside of the tents. One of my favorite photos is the closeup shot of a woman carrying her black Crocodile Hermes Kelly 50cm Replica Kelly Pochette. The closeup accessory photo exudes elegance.

It had been in 2003, shortly after my 1st child was born, that I purchased my first ever Hermes bag– it had been an Hermes orange Kelly in 35cm, with palladium hardware.When I carried the bag around with my baby, among the younger “ladies who lunch” whom I visited in her family’s retail store asked me exactly what bag I had been toting. She remarked that it looked just like a “briefcase” and it was something she would never be caught dead carrying because it was in her words, “ugly.” LOL. I really don’t recall the bag she was carryingout, but I distinctly remembered her not knowing what an Hermes Kelly or Birkin was. I admired her view of my bag. After all, it was my “ugly” bag. LOL. But hey I had been happy of this bag since it was something I had bought for myself with my own hard- earned money– my drive gift LOL. I purchased the bag thinking it was likely to be the costliest bag I would ever purchase, and that it was also my final. I’d purchased the Hermes bag even before I ended up buying the Louis Vuitton Neo Denim Speedy.This was incidentally the bag that jumpstarted this tote site as “The Bag Hag Diaries.” Back then I was still blogging under a different site at Blogspot. Ok let’s not get nostalgic because when I went to look at some of my old posts to pull the pictures of the bags over, I cringed hahahaha!!
