Just when we think we’ve seen it all, E! Has made a television that shows us what is like to be a young adult in Beverly Hills. The premiere of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills left us #Speechless. (Seriously, have you seen how many hashtags are in this show?)  The stars of this show are in their mid-twenties and are not really kids, per-se. The show stars Dorothy Wang, her bestie Morgan Stewart, as well as many of their friends that make appearances.  Dorothy, an unemployed daughter of a retail store tycoon, has said it is her job to be fun-employed and fabuluxe. Dorothy is also quite the collector of Hermès Handbags.  “Honestly, I’m not sure how many Birkins I have, I’ve kinda lost count. The entry-level Birkin is probably around $10,000 and the crocodile or alligator is $60,000.”  – Dorothy Wang on the premiere episode of #RKOBH. Morgan, a daughter of an architect who has built many stores on Rodeo Drive, is a tall, blonde, big-chested, gal pal of Dorothy. Morgan has a blog where she shares her fashion and life, called Boobs and Loubs. (We love this title!) Morgan estimates that she owns over 200 pairs of Louboutins.

We love all the eye candy on Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. It is easy to keep tabs on all of your favorite characters. We highly suggest following them on Instagram for a behind the scenes look of the show. Just in case you’re afraid you’ll forget what hashtags to use when you Instagram, don’t worry, they will remind you. Dorothy never disappoints and seems to always have a new Birkin or Hermès accessory on in every other scene.

Dorothy and Morgan decide to throw a penthouse party where they take drinks from a Champagne bong, shots and when the night is over, Dorothy takes care of the tip that was well over $40,000.00 with tip. What a great friend! It is at this party where we meet, Roxy, a friend of Morgan, who is a self-proclaimed Persian Princess is also a big fan of Hermès  Handbags and can be seen taking expensive shopping trips throughout the show. Roxy said on average she spends $20,000-$30,000 a month.

The next day, Dorothy and Morgan go out to lunch and meet up with Morgan’s boyfriend Brendan. To no surprise, Dorothy is carrying a different Birkin Bag. Dorothy chose to take her 35cm Hermès Black Leather Birkin to her luncheon with Morgan and Brendan. Brendan is a real-estate agent who sold his first house at the age of 19 and has continued to grow his business since. Dorothy and Morgan discussed a blood drive that Dorothy is putting together, with a few friends at a small get together and try to gain donors and sponsors. Later on in the episode, we are introduced to EJ, who is Magic Johnson’s son and happens to be quite a fashion icon.  EJ goes to Dorothy’s blood drive to support her and her efforts to make a change in their community.  The blood drive ends up being a great success! We can’t wait to see what is next for these Rich Kids of Beverly Hills and what fabulous Hermès Handbags they will share with us! Watch Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, Sundays on E!

Here are a few of our favorite quotes from the show:

“Walking from Barney’s up Rodeo is always like our cardio.”  – Dorothy to Morgan while carrying a 35cm Hermès Leather Birkin Handbag. We believe the color was Geranium.

“I would love to help you with a blood drive. I have nothing better going on and I’ve never given blood.” — Morgan Stewart about the Blood Drive Dorothy was putting together and even gave the event its own hashtag – #Bloodisthenewblack.

“Opening Wine is the hardest thing in the entire world.” – Morgan on opening her first bottle of wine by herself, before taking a selfie celebrating her overcoming this milestone in her life.

When Sachi spilled sangria on my marigold yellow velvet Chanel Boy Bag and satin Charlotte Olympia shoes, I kind of freaked out initially, obviously, because I was like, ‘Agh, my stuff!’ But I looked over and I saw he felt really bad, and I thought, ‘I can always get another Chanel Boy Bag and another pair of Charlotte Olympia shoes.” – Dorothy

Kim Kardashian Steps Out with An Absolutely Amazing 25cm Hermès Matte Himalayan Crocodile Birkin Handbag

Kim Kardashian saved some face last week after showing the world her interesting, custom Birkin from Kanye West, by stepping out with this gorgeous 25cm Hermès Matte Himalayan Niloticus Crocodile Birkin Handbag! We must say we adore this handbag on Kim as it works perfectly with her style and skin tone. Kim has been seen at the airport, out in London, out on a date night with Kanye, and out for a lunch date in LA with her new beauty. The Himalayan Birkin is a rare hand bag and among the most expensive Birkins from Hermès.

It seems Miss Kardashian’s Hermès collection is rapidly growing as this is her second new Hermès Birkin Handbag in a month! We wonder if she will bling out her Birkin by adding diamonds to the hardware. We have seen many celebrities with varying sizes of the Hermès Himalayan Birkin Handbag : Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Petra Ecclestone, Tamara Ecclestone, and Holly Valance, just to name a few. Who wears this amazing handbag best? What do you think?

Kanye West Gives Kim Kardashian a Custom Hermès HAC Birkin Handbag for Christmas!

Kimye, (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) have certainly been in the news a lot lately. The pair got engaged in October of last year, 4 months after the birth of their daughter, North West. Kanye of course had to get his queen an amazing gift to match that amazing rock! Have you seen what Kanye got Miss Kardashian for Christmas? Not a simple necklace, clothes or shoes, but something even more amazing! What else could we expect from the couple that loves Hermès and other luxury brands?

Kim Kardashian received a custom Hermès Gold Leather HAC  (Haut à Courroies) Birkin Handbag, that was hand-painted by George Condo. An Hermès HAC Birkin Handbag is longer than the original Birkin Handbag style and it has shorter straps. We believe this handbag is a 45cm Hermès HAC Handbag. This handbag appears to be from the Kardashian Hermès collection and to be previously worn. The handbag featured several nude figures. Some of you may recognize the art style from Kanye’s 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kim made sure to share her unique gift with the world by sharing a picture on Instagram with the following caption, “#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin#OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy.”

We have to wonder if Kim actually likes her gift from Yeezy. What do you think about this piece of art? I can’t get over the bright green monster face. Yikes! Could one of these women illustrated on the handbag be made to look like Kim? Would you wear this handbag?

All in all, Kim was finally set free and her hellish divorce was finalized, Kim gave birth to a little girl that she can dress in Hermès from head-to-toe, received a ginormous 15-carat engagement ring and this unique Hermès Gold Leather HAC Birkin Bag from her man, all in 2013. Not a bad year at all, girl.
