Victoria Beckham owns numerous Birkin bags. I don’t know if these numbers are accurate or not but I read that she owns at least 100 Birkin bags and that her collection is worth roughly 2.5 million US dollars.
How many Hermes Birkin bags do you own?
Asking this question I envision the face of that girl from high school who asked me “how many pirouettes can you do?” when she was testing me to see if I was lying about being a ballerina. I said I could do 100 pirouettes. I think I’ve told this story before. If you’re a dancer you don’t need to be told how I betrayed myself with my answer to that question. Here’s a video showing a dancer demonstrating her world record-holding ability to do 36 pirouttes.
I own zero  Hermes Birkin bags.
I suspect girls who own Hermes bags are too busy jet-setting around the globe to have time to write on blogs. They have instagram and tumblr pages instead and post pictures of themselves sitting on their private jets with their Hermes bags in their laps.
For the rest of us there’s no more buying one Hermes Birkin bag much less two when we’re feeling down and blue. Some of us can’t even afford a replica birkin bag. Although personally I would not want to be walking around with a Birkin bag knock off. All that does is tells the world I wish I had a Birkin bag but I can’t afford a real birkin bag so I bought a fake birkin bag and I’m walking around trying to act like I have a Birkin bag. I’d rather just do without a Birkin bag.

Birkin bags would appear to be something of a status symbol for women who can afford the brand. For the price of some Birkin bags a person could afford to buy a house. Granted it would not be a dream house; but there are houses that cost less than the cost of some Birkins bags.

I ask myself: If you came into a lot of money would you buy a Birkin bag for $85,000?
I answer myself: $85,000 is a lot of money. If I could get my hands on $85,000 right now it would be like winning the lottery. There’s a lot I could do with $85,000. I could become debt-free. I could pay to get one or two of my songs professionally produced. I could possibly even get one of my short film ideas produced. Obviously these would be low budget productions but right now I can’t afford low budget much less high budget so being able to afford low budget would be awesome. If I had $85,000 I could also afford to pay a writing coach to work with me to try to get at least one of my novels in progress finished. I could afford the medical procedure I have needed since 2009 but still can’t afford. There’s so much I could do with $85,000. So knowing that $85,000 is a lot of money to someone in my position I am not sure that if I came into a lot of money like say 200+ million dollars like those two people just did who won Mega Millions the other day that I would have the courage to spend $85,000 on a bag even if it’s the prestigious Hermes Birkin bag.

I’m wondering why Victoria Beckham felt like she needed that many Birkin bags assuming she does indeed have at least 100. With such an exorbitant price tag just one bag makes the point that you’re fabulously rich. One Birkin bag is all a girl needs to know she’s in the big leagues. I mean didn’t I hear that you have to qualify for a waiting list to get one of these bags assuming you’re not buying pre-owned from places like portero.com? Your Birkin-worthiness is established just by getting on that waiting list; and once you get your first birkin bag you should be set for life. You have no need to buy another 99 birkin bags; but hey as long as Victoria is happy–that’s really all that matters in the end.
