Whenever I wear it now, it’s not because it’s a Birkin. I couldn’t care less if it was any other exclusive bag, but this bag keeps that memory of my dad and I close to my heart. Not only did we have so much fun during that Paris trip, just the two of us, but he taught me an important lesson; be kind to people. No matter how rich you get or how high you go, stay humble. People will never forget how you make them feel, and if you make them feel good, they will go to great lengths for you. So many people walked in and out that day disappointed that they didn’t get a Birkin, and the salesman chose my dad out of all of them. Because he didn’t do things like everyone else did, and because he didn’t use wealth to show power or entitlement. He touched the guy’s heart in a way the other customers didn’t.
