I remember the first time I ever saw the Hermes Kelly Double Tour bracelet.
It was at the start of an English class when I was still in high school, I think I was in year 8. I remember a small group of people from our class gathering round a class mate saying, "Wow Fiona, that's gorgeous!" On hearing the word 'gorgeous', I had to rush over to put an end to my curiosity. There on Fiona's wrist was a brown leather bracelet with gold hardware and the first thing I thought was "I must get me one of those!" but when Fiona told me how much this bracelet cost, I then corrected my thought with: "One day, I will get me one of those!"
At the time, I didn't know of the Hermes brand (MAJOR WTF, RIGHT!?) but I appreciated the simplicity of the design and it was on my wishlist ever since, and today is the day I can cross it off.
