Lust & Must: The Birkin Bag

birkin bags

Three words every woman wishes to have in her hands: “The Birkin Bag”. The Birkin Bag is one of the most exquisite and expensive bags known to the fashion world. The Birkin bag is more of a collector’s item rather than an item to show off.


A Birkin bag can range from the prices of $7,400 to $150,000. Why is this Birkin Bag so ridiculously expensive? The price of the bag depends on the materials that are used. The bag is distributed to Hermes boutiques at unpredictable times and the bags are VERY limited. Most of the time you need to be put on a waiting list to get your hands on one of these precious babies.


OMGTRENDS is doing a lust and must on the Birkin Bag. Some of us can afford a very expensive and beautiful bag at whole price, but some of us need the knock off. But don’t worry we know of a good knock of, just in case your wallet can spend the money.

You’re a bombshell babe whose goal is to look unintentionally beautiful. Voluminous hair is sexy: Stay away from the straight iron! Go for texture or large, loose curls that give you a wind-blown effect when you strut by. Your guests won’t be able to take their eyes off you.

If you’re the Beach Bride:

You’re all about having fun and don’t take things too seriously. Your hair should reflect your playful, carefree outlook on life, so opt for loose waves. Weaving two braids around the back of your head for a reversed crown look will add dimension to the laid back style.

If you’re the Girl Next Door:

You feel comfortable in your skin and prefer to look and feel natural, especially on your wedding day. A loose braid is perfect; not over-the-top, but just whimsical enough to feel like a bride. Add a homemade flower tiara for a fresh look all your own. Your natural beauty will surely shine.

If you’re the Modern Bride:

You’re a fashion-forward woman of today and want a hairstyle that rivals those of celebrities on the red carpet. To accomplish this, pull curls back into a loose bun a little higher than the base of your neck. Every little hair should not be hair sprayed down; stiff updos are overdone. Don’t take yourself too seriously and go for effortlessly beautiful, leaving out short, wavy tendrils to frame your face.

If you’re the Pinup Bride:

You’re a decade’s girl who would rather rummage through thrift stores than shop at department stores. For a fun, sexy style, use a thick curling iron to roll up pieces of your hair into rollers. One you release large, face-framing barrel curls, brush them out. To get the complete ’50s look, wear a caged veil with a flower or sparkling brooch to add glamour. Your grand entrance will be unforgettable.

If you’re the Vintage Bride:
