The It-bag goes primetime....



If you're a Real Housewives of Atlanta fan (spare me the diatribe about how it's frivolous, drama-filled TV. Because it's also daggone entertaining). If you watched last night, then you may have peeped that Sheree was sporting a Hermes Birkin Bag. It was red, luxurious and perhaps the classiest thing about the entire show.


A few thoughts came to mind. First of all, I thought it a bit far flung that Sheree, a NFL player divorcee, would have a Birkin considering she didn't get that "Million Dollar" divorce settlement and Birkin's can cost upwards of $30,000. So of course "FAUX" popped into my head.

And it seems this red number isn't the only Birkin Sheree owns.

The Birkin, named after British Actress Jane Birkin, is the thing of legend. A sort of rights of passage for the rich and fashionable. Kind of like riding boots were to my friends and I in middle school. You kinda HAD to have a pair to be relevant. The shallow start young, don't we?

But back to this bag. The bag cost between $9,000 and $30,000 according to most reports.

And apparently there is a whole method of buying the Birkin, which usually requires a waiting list.

So much to do just to spend a college tuition on a clump of leather. Is it worth it? How much is too much when it comes to buying a piece of luxury?

Help me, Deal Diva readers. Would you spend $30,000 on a purse even if you could afford it?
