Birthday Wish List
Tina’s birthday is coming up (August 22, to be exact), so we’re celebrating early with her ultimate late-summer wish list: From a serpentine timepiece to the sparkly slingbacks of the season to a classic Hermès piece—because is it really Bag Snob’s birthday without Hermès?—these are her swoon-worthy dream gifts.
1. Hermès Birkin Harness
"There's nothing like a brilliant Birkin update to reinvigorate my bag wardrobe. For anyone who's wished they could sling one of the world's most iconic top-handles over their shoulder (or even cross-body), enter the Harness, sold separately in black and gold, specifically for your Birkin. Naturally inspired by equestrian bridles, this attachable sling isn't just functional; it makes for a new lease on a constant classic."
Inquire with Hermès for purchase.
2. TriPollar STOP Vx
"My favorite high-tech gadget line has outdone themselves with their latest tool: a multi-functional anti-aging device featuring third-generation radio frequency technology with ELV to reduce lines and wrinkles, lift and tone around the jawline, even improve skin texture. Achieving professional-grade results at home just got even easier."
Available at TriPollar Beauty.
3. Amina Muaddi Begum Slingback Pumps
"I'm enchanted by this modern-day glass slipper from the shoe designer of the moment: There's no way I'm saying no to Amina Muaddi's subversive combination of embellished crystals and sleek PVC in uplifting lilac."
Available at Net-a-Porter.
4. FlexIt Virtual Personal Training
"I love the convenience and flexibility (no pun intended) of this virtual personal trainer. When it comes to working out, I have zero discipline. Now with FlexIt, I roll out of bed in my pajamas at 7am, turn on my laptop, and work out every morning for 30 minutes, before I'm even fully awake! You can sign up for a free session here."
Available at FlexIt.
5. Bulgari Serpenti Spiga Watch
"A truly timeless timepiece: I've thought the Bulgari Serpenti is the most seductively elegant watch for years, and now in diamond-accented rose-gold with a mother-of-pearl face, it's irresistible. Did I mention it's also totally extravagant?!"
Available at Bulgari.
