The Hermès Secret & White Denim in France

SS 111213 TourDeSavvy COVER

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t even know what a Birkin bag was until watching a Sex & the City rerun in my college dorm. It was the ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’ episode where Samantha is seriously lusting over Lucy Lui’s Birkin bag. Hermès of Paris is one of the most recognizable luxury brands, which is why I was excited to figure out a little Hermès belt-kit loophole.

I starting noticing the Hermès belt a lot last year especially on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It seemed Yolanda wore one with every pair of painted on low-rise skinny jeans. (Quick Sidenote on the RHOBH if you watch) – I have a high tolerance for reality shows, but I thought it was so annoying Bravo! shoved the vapid cast of ‘Vanderpump Rules‘ down viewers’ throats mixing it with the premiere. I’m glad it stopped in last night’s episode. Do you watch RHOBH; what do you think so far?

Back to the post. Here’s a quick roadtrip and a lighthearted ‘Crepe Date’ as we spent the day in Colmar, France last Saturday. I’ll explain the Hermès belt double style trick below…

<DETAILS by Dale> top (recent) – H&M, belt – Hermès, heels – Franco Sarto (TJ Maxx), jeans (old) – D&G outlet, purse – LV, watch – vintage

Hermès Secret Style Trick – I noticed men who invest in clothes have a few quality pieces they wear all the time. So…… I realized my husband’s Hermès belt is reversible (black & caramel) so he instantly has 2 belts. Also, the ‘H’ belt buckle is removable meaning I only needed to get the plain belt without re-buying the belt kit and buckle. I can just borrow his. Major savings and we can just switch off because there is no reason to ever attend an event with someone wearing matchy-matchy Hermès belts. So all you need is someone who’s willing to share. This is the belt pictured above.

Bonus – This is a great holiday gift idea for him if you’re looking to upgrade his wardrobe with a stylish reversible belt (go for the small-med. 32 mm ‘H’ so it’s not gaudy) that looks good with jeans, suits, and casual looks. And check out this clever styling trick using Hermès giftwrap. I noticed it on one of my new friends, Georgina, here in Zurich who founded the design site the:meazure and had to snap an instagram.

Hope this helps. Are you a fan of Hermès?

  1. That episode of S&TC is exactly when I learned of Hermes/Birkin. Lucy Liu was hilarious in that. I love RHOBH too! I have to admit I’m hooked on Vanderpump Rules even though I always wish I wouldn’t have wasted my time after I watch an episode. I love everything about Yolanda. Great post Dale!

  2. I love your yellow hand bag, very nice :)

  13. Urgh, yeah HUGE savings hahaha! That’s actually a brilliant idea Dale, now to find a man with a Hermes belt!

    And yes I am a total sucker for any of those housewives! I love Brandi and Lisa together but it seems like their relationship is on rocky ground which makes me sad. And Yolanda’s whole look – I want to be her at that age, painted on white denims, Hermes, shirts and all! And that house! Hahaha!

  18. I wish my man was fashionable so that I could borrow his Hermes belt buckle. He pronounces it “her-meeze” (as a joke, but still…). I love him for it.
    Can we please discuss your fabulous bag that did not get enough credit in this post!? Amazing.
