In today’s installment of Closet Confessionals, we meet a Registered Nurse from Texas who has been collecting bags since her late twenties. While she started off dipping her toe in the handbag pond with a Louis Vuitton Monogram bag, eventually, she expanded into Hermès. CC 172 began her Hermès journey as a walk-in client with the purchase of a Garden Party, and from there, she began exploring the world of Birkins and Kellys too!
During the pandemic, after many hours of overtime, CC 172 was able to buy a lot of the Hermès bags she currently owns, and while she doesn’t dream of having a massive collection of bags, this collector does admit that the ones she lusts after are quite pricey. Over the years, CC 172 has been able to narrow down her favorite kind of bags and has realized that crossbody bags are quite important to her. Additionally, this handbag lover sold a Kelly bag in sellier leather after realizing this type of leather didn’t work for her and would like to purchase a retourne Kelly 25 next.
