Birkin Bag ... Cocktail Napkins

Can’t afford a Birkin bag? Been on the waiting list for years? Tired of hinting to your boyfriend/husband to get you one? Then worry no further, you can get your own Birkin bag at a very affordable price and in 8 colors at that!

Well, here you go:

Birkin Bag Cocktail Napkins by Avril Loreti

HA! Don’t we all wish it was as easy as that. Unfortunately,  part of the thrill of having your own Birkin (the real one!) is the exclusivity.

While majority of the population can’t afford one, most of us — the woman half at least — know what a Birkin is. Or maybe not? If not, Google it.

I am reminded of a Gilmore Girls episode where Rory (played by Alexis Bledel) was given a Birkin by Logan, her well-to-do boyfriend. She had no idea what it was — just that it was  a bag. She didn’t even blink at the Hermes paper bag it came with. Funny.

Anyhoo, according to Supermarket this was designed by an Avril Loreti:
Avoid the two year waiting list and indulge in your very own set of Birkin Bag cocktail napkins. Flaunt a new set of cocktail napkins with prints of the most luxurious Hermes handbags at your next cocktail party!!
Set of 8 cocktail napkins with illustrations of The Birkin Bag in a variety of colours!

Description: 8 cocktail napkins, folded size 4 1/4″ × 4 1/4″, open size 8 1/2″ × 8 1/2″. White cotton/poly blend.

It’s a nice gift idea for your friends (who are bag whores ladies like you!) and nice conversation piece for bridal showers and girl parties.

For those who don't know what a Birkin is, according to Wikipedia:
The "Birkin" bag is a purse manufactured by leather goods and ready-to-wear manufacturer Hermès. It is named after British-born actress and singer Jane Birkin, a longtime resident of France.
