* Oh Hermès …le sigh *

I really REALLY want this Hermes iphone case. Like really want it. I think it’s because, besides their cute leather key chains and {some select} scarves, it’s the only thing that’s affordable. And really, I wouldn’t say that $315 is necessarily affordable for an iphone case, a key chain OR a scarf, but for Hermes, it’s down right cheap. And I want it.

Here’s the thing, I’m not sure I can really justify spending the $315 on a case that is made for an iphone that is technically obsolete, even though I will have mine for the next 2 years …but then what would I use the beautiful Hermes iphone case for? Right …justifiable, I think not. Beautiful and completely coveted, I think yes.

So now I’m thinking I may just make my own damn iphone case out of all that extra leather I have laying around. But it wouldn’t be Hermes. And maybe I’ll buy a scarf instead because at least I know in 20 years {if we are all still alive on this planet} that Hermes scarf will still be chic …just like it was 20 years ago.

* And this is a little peek at how I make decisions about what to splurge on and what to save on and how and when I decide to DIY something. Though sometimes, all rational thinking goes out the door and I just buy it. 🙂
