Confession of an Asian StyleHolic

Not everyone can afford to even touch Birkin or Kelly from Hermes. The lowest price (for Birkin) is about USD7500.00 and for most mortal, she will think twice or maybe 923 times  before purchase it. Or even you have all the money, it doesn’t assure you can bring Birkin home. The average waitlist for this bag is two years.



If you want to carry something like Hermes next week and your credit card just reaches the limit, there is a solution. Substitute for Kelly or Birkin is Furla Greta Tote. I just love the pale pink blush colour. Very remarkable on the croc embossed leather. The silver tone hardware compliments the pink.  


But wait a minute. What a coincidence! Hermes has (Grace) Kelly  and  Furla has Greta (Garbo). Another similarity between these bags is it looks almost identical. Both are square, almost in same size (you can cover your beer belly with Furla, Grace Kelly covers baby bump with Hermes). Hermes skinned crocodile for Kelly while Furla Greta is croc embossed leather.  Any differences? Yes, apart from the price tags, the label on Kelly is Hermes and on Greta is Furla.


Greta is for someone who is not ready to carry Kelly or Birkin. Carrying Kelly or Birkin means you carrying a lot of responsibilities.  Practice with Greta. Once you used to the compliment about your high taste in choosing the stylish cute bag, then you can head to Hermes and put your name on the waiting list.


Practice aid at for USD378.00.
