Bringing Home the Birkin!

Book reviews are one of my favourite posts to do. Needless to say, they are the perfect balance of two of my favourite things, blogging, and reading. Now, this book is not just any book. I can wholeheartedly say that I actually think this book was written purposely for me. Those who know me or are anything like me, know that fashion is something I invest a lot of my time into, and since this is a fashion blog after all, I would expect a few of you to catch my drift. 

Bringing Home the Birkin captures the essence of a lifestyle many Birkin lovers would say is perfect.  The eBay reseller, Michael Tonello, tells the story of his Birkin buying journey and also shares many useful tips within the world of Hermès. His vast knowledge with his witty comedy makes the book incredibly easy to follow and delightful to read, and actually very funny! I was relatively familiar with Hermès before reading this book, but now I feel like I'm a walking Hermès dictionary (with an orange cover, of course...). Considering the conventional wait list for one of those ever so coveted Birkin bags is no shorter than 2 years, Michael reveals his secret tips in order to bypass the list and walk away with a Birkin that very day. 

What I also love about this book is that it's not just all Hermès glory, (although that doesn't sound quite that terrifying). The novel also focuses on many other life lessons which I think is one reason which made it so enjoyable. It highlights how important having sustainable relationships with those around you, and that nothing materialistic, or a he would say 'stuff', is as vital as having loved ones in your atmosphere. Lastly, Bringing Home the Birkin also targets many beautiful and scenic hot spots around the world, Barcelona and Paris to name a few which literally made this stunning story all the more breathtaking.

I 100% recommend everyone to read this book, even if you're not that interested in Hermès! I'll leave a link to the book on Amazon here so you can check it out for yourself.

Have you read this book? Have you read any books that sound similar to this one?

Have a great day!
