FASHION, Hermes, Uncategorized HERMES CARMEN KEYRING IN ROSE SHOCKING 11 May 2011

So if you know me in real life, you’ll probably know that I have a bit of an odd… penchant. I really like fiddling with things!! I’m aware of how silly that sounds, so let me try and explain myself. I think I’m a really tactile person.. I adore stroking, twiddling, rubbing stuff – specifically, materials that I love.

Example #1: I cannot help buying super-soft drapey clothes. Once I touch material that is really thin, light and ultra soft, I am a total GONER. I just have to buy it. Materials like silk+cashmere blends, really thin/soft cotton (from brands like Junk Food, and vintage-style tees), and tencel. Ahhhh I just can’t resist! In fact, just thinking about it from writing this down is making me fantasize about fingering some soft clothes.

Example #2: My mad obsession with slouchy leather bags. Despite many of my bags looking the same, I still can’t help but be drawn to really smooshy bags. I mean, how can one possibly resist that luscious softness of the leather, and that intoxicating smell?? I certainly can’t. I often can be found sitting on the couch at home and stroking one of my leather bags, like it’s a pet or something.

Further to Example #2, it’s the reason why I adore Balenciaga bags. When used and bashed around, they adopt this incredible silky soft texture. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE fiddling with the tassels!!! In fact, after I stroked and used my Balenciaga magenta First to absolute death, I pulled off its tassels and keep it by my laptop at home to fiddle with. I’ve fiddled that for 2 years now, carefully gluing it all back together whenever it falls apart from my excessive *ahem* fiddling. It’s no longer magenta-coloured.. it’s more of a dark grey/black colour now. Chris is appalled, “Eww.. I bet there’s no more leather there anymore, it’s just a strip of dead skin cells and oil!” In fact, once or twice he actually tried to steal my tassel, so I had to beat him to the ground to teach him a lesson. Kidding.

Anyway, finally, my Balenciaga tassel gave way and totally fell apart πŸ™ So I went hunting for a replacement and found…………………….. HermΓ¨s carmen keyring in Rose Shocking!!!

It has not 1, not 2 tassels…. but a GAZILLION TASSELS!!!! All in buttery soft, luscious, smooth leather. If my 1 Balenciaga tassel lasted me 2 years of fiddling goodness, just imagine how many years this will last me. Many many many tassels for me to play with until doomsday. Oh joy, oh happiness.

    i have often been flamed by random people, who simply cannot understand the lure/temptation of a new leather bag.

    i can sit around smelling the newly purchased bag before obsessively keeping them in dustbag to “preserve/prolong” the leather smell…

    after reading the bit of “smell”, i so TOTALLY get you. *laughs* =D

      That smell is soooo good. I’m glad I’m not the only nutter, haha!
