A "New to Me" Hermes Purchase

This is only my 2nd consignment-store purchase.  I bought a pair of Chloe heels a while back, which were brand-new.  I told myself I'd buy only unused items from consignment stores, and this new purchase isn't exactly unused, but it's pretty close.  It had a tiny stain on it, but it's hardly noticeable, and I got it for just $75 (slightly more than half the current retail price of $140).  Here's my newest Hermes twilly!  It's called "Belles du Mexique".  I remember seeing it at the boutique, but unable to find it in the twilly size.  I'm so happy to call it mine now!

Hermes items truly are the pinnacle of luxury, even down to tiny inches-long pieces of silk.  However, they are pricey so if you're trying to save where you can while still enjoying luxury (like I am), consignment is the way to go.  Just be sure to really examine your pieces before purcashing.

Lucky! I just missed out on a blue one and it crushed me ;(

P.s. If you ever sell any more of your CLs under 120 mm (esp. beige but am open to colors) and are around a 37, I would be very interested!
