To date, we i.e. the boyfriend and I have been to approximately 6 or 7 Hermes stores – 2 in Malaysia, 3 or 4 in London and 1 in Manchester. No, we are not in search of a Birkin. Instead, we are searching for the elusive ‘H’ belt. Ahhh, not just any ‘H’ belt, the black enamel ‘H’ belt. Preferably with an orange leather strap. It is so freaking hard to track down! It’s funny how we get so obsessed over something, especially when we find out that it is impossible to find.
One word of advice: if you ever see something you love but you think you might be able to find something better, or cheaper, STOP! Forget that, and just get it, even if it is a bit on the expensive side.
Rationale: If you DO find something better, you can always return your purchase. But if you decide to just keep looking and fail, chances are you would be kicking yourself (or in our case, begin a worldwide hunt) for not buying it when you had the chance because low and behold, it’s gone.
The boyfriend is still hopeful.
