Orange Hermes Birkin: Savvy or Not??

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL MY BLOGGIE FRIENDS!!! HOPE EVERYONE HAS LOTS OF TREATS TONIGHT.....Since I am thinking pumpkin, we will discuss orange color Hermes Birkin. Ever since we saw a gal pal with an orange 30 cm Birkin, Savvy Sis and I have been wishing for one day and night. However after Savvy Sis got her orange Hermes So Kelly, we are rethinking this orange thing. Besides pairing the bag with brown, black and jeans and white tees, she doesn't really know what to do with the bag. Suddenly I recall gal pal usually wear black and brown with her orange Birkin. Hm.... Interesting....
I guess I would also wear orange bags with pink, like Julia Robert. Victoria Beckham is in matchy-matchy mode. Ah.... She looks fabulous with her orange Birkin but then the woman has Birkins in every color of the rainbow and some. I don't like how Lindsay Lohan dress with the orange Birkin. If you are going to spend $9000+ on a Birkin, will you pick orange? If not, what is your color of choice?

  1. I like how Victoria Beckham is so well put together. Even though nowadays it is very much chic not to match accessories - I'll just have one piece that doesn't match with anything. But only one;)

  2. Happy halloween! I really like how Victoria Beckham carries her orange Birkin bag and styles it with her outfits. The Birkin bag is part of her signature look, along with sunglasses and YSL pumps. Great post, Savvy.

  3. I think I would pick it (or red!) because of it being the classic colour that probably doesn´t get faked well- it looks like something special!
    I have an orange Tod´s bag that I like for the same reason.

  4. I think that for such an expensive bag, it might be better to have a colour that goes with more.

  5. happy halloween ! oh and if i have that much money to buy the bag , maybe i will choose black or red because those colors go with almost everything :)

  6. You betcha! For such an expensive bag, you want to get a color that everyone will spot immediately! And the best thing about is orange goes with EVERYTHING. Everything! Black and the neutrals look boring, red is expected, and the others are difficult to match. But orange? It's classic and yet surprising. I love orange!

  7. Ugh to see Lindsay with any color Birkin makes my skin crawl. She probably pukes in it after a heavy night of partying. Sigh. :(
    I do love the orange one, however. When paired with the right colors, it's very pretty.

  8. I agree with Frances, I would wear it a lot.
    Happy Halloween, my dear.

  9. Don't think I would ever pick orange as it really is hard to match to an outfit properly. I would rather spend $9000 on a more neutral colour that I could use with everything. ALthough it is pretty, unless you have a endless budget, its not really practical.

  10. i love matchy matchy, so i adore VB.
    i thought you already have a birkin or two?
    but if i had it like that, for my 1st birkin, i think i would pick a black or navy. something classic and not too flashy.

  11. I kind of love it, as it's more of a pumpkin spice shade as opposed to a garish bright orange. Though I wouldn't buy it myself. Victoria Beckham has worked it into her ensemble in the most fabulous of ways; but I can't say I would feel confident carrying such an outlandish color. I'd probably opt for a black Birkin myself! :)

  12. I would love an orange Birkin! I'd wear it with grey, and also dark blue. Check this one out of Renee Zellweger: http://www.bagthatstyle.com/2009/renee-zellweger-hermes-dejavu/.

    I would totally get a blue Birkin. In ostrich.

  13. I love mixing colors to the brink of being tacky. I would put orange with blue- they're complimentary colors, I believe. That bag would really pop against a deep blue!

  15. I love the orange birkin but if I have a choice, I'd stick with the neutrals like black or tan birkins.

  24. Orange is my absolute favorite color and I carry my two orange leather purses (one small and one tote) with many outfits. I love the bright, color, and it really goes with so many things.

    Happy Halloween SG !! :-)

  25. I do love orange and I am just finding out that it does look good on me...after all these years! That bag is a real winner!

  26. Not sure if I'd spend 9k on an orange bad, although I don't think I would want just a black or brown (typical colors) for 9k either! I love green- so maybe that would be my color of choice! XO

  27. Happy (belated) Halloween! I quite like the color orange, but avoid wearing it, usually, I don't think it's a very flattering color for my skin tone. ;)

  29. Oh gosh I can't imagine buying one so haven't even thought about the colour! But orange does look great...

  30. I love the orange, but if I were to be able to invest, I'd personally opt for something more classic so I'd get more wear. That doesn't mean I don't love it though,
    I.am.drooling.

  31. I loooove that colour but agree, it can be difficult to match but when you get a colour like that, you KNOW it's going to stand out no matter what.

  32. Happy belated Halloween! I think orange is a really hard color to pull off, but I think Victoria did it correctly with her orange purse!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hope you had a Happy Halloween! I love the orange Birkin and I'd probably just pair it with everything - I have a purple winter coat that would look beautiful with one. But if I were to invest in one, I'd go choose black with gold hardware.

  34. Orange is my fave colour, however it could clash with Victorias tan if she is not careful!Sharon xxxooo

  35. I have my orange target bag I've been hauling around for the Holiday ;D

  36. I am all for the orange bags! They are way cute. However, if you are buying a Birkin, I would totally get a more neutral color for its versatility.

    Happy Halloween!

  37. Yea...oragne is a bit out there... I would probably get a neutral color instead.

  38. VB always looks so put together! It's scary and inspiring at the same time...hee hee. Hmmm...I think I would choose black (boring but true :) since it'd go with everything.

    Hope your Halloween was fun, A.! :D

  39. Personally, I think I'd like a more neutral color. But I certainly wouldn't turn down a free orange one! :)
