Like the Isabel Marant boots, the Hermes CDC bracelet is an item that I dithered on forever until I decided to jump the gun and buy it, albeit several price increases later. Sigh. I rang up and asked for the bracelet and the random sales associate who answered sounded like I must be absolutely insane to be expecting to actually purchase something. Super long waitlist, lowly peasant! Now I love me my Hermes, and most of my experiences have been great – but sometimes like in all luxury shops you get a sales person that looks at you like you’ve come to beg for a spot on the last lifeboat off of the Titanic. I always just ignore these bad seeds and move on.
Anyway, I got my hands on this little lizard ombre version and my only regret is that I hadn’t purchased it earlier! I’d love one with gold hardware next. It makes me feel more edgy, which we all know is a daunting task as I am closer to Ned Flanders on the “cool-o-meter” scale. I’d recommend it, and my lovely regular Hermes sales associate just told me that they are expecting quite a few more in for the holidays, in all kinds of leathers and exotics. So if you’re looking for one, check your local boutique or Hermes.com!
