"Hi dolls," Khloé wrote on her blog on December 15th. "When I was on the plane en route to South Africa yesterday I stumbled upon these pics of me and Lamar leaving the Supper Club and I wanted to do a post about the Birkin bag I'm carrying… Not only is it my favorite color, but I'm also REPPIN THE LAKERS when I carry it :)" That must have been what Lamar had in mind when he bought it.
The Birkin bag, which Hermes named after British actress Jane Birkin, is one of the most coveted accessories a woman can have these days. Its price tag can run anywhere from $10,000 to more than $30,000. One of the most expensive Birkin bags is made of saltwater crocodile skin — one reportedly sold at auction for $65,000. Sister Kim recently added a $30k orange ostrich number to her already Birkin-heavy bag collection (see the gallery below). Maybe she couldn’t afford the saltwater croc one. Oh wait, that’s us we’re thinking of.
No telling how much Lamar shelled out for Khloé's, but he sure knows his audience.
