I’m a big mixer of high end brands and high street labels, it’s something I’ve done for years! We’ve taken a look into my personal style on shoes and clothes so I thought I’ll start the year with something different- Arm Candy! My all-time favourite is this Hermès Blue Birkin. It’s not the most popular hue out there but it works with the items in my closet, which is quite important when you make such a splurge.
Another key one is the size. I went for a 35cm mainly because I’m petite, any larger wouldn’t look right on me! The Blue looks gorgeous with classic tones such as white, black and grey which helps for longevity. I’ve even found a new hue to rock it with à la Kimora Lee Simmons. Doesn’t her arm charm look fabulous with this green leather jacket?
I love my blue Birkin because it’s not a seasonal colour- it’s great with winter staples and when summer arrives, it transcends very easily and compliments florals! Last summer, I wore it with a white tank from Primark, beige maxi skirt from Zara and a ruffled cropped jacket from Topshop. Right now, I plan on trying it on with the latest Spring 2011 colour combo- Blue and Tan!
The Birkin is arguably one of my best buys ever! Have you Fashion Angels got a buy right at the top of your list?
