Early Birthday Present


Hermes Rivale braceletHermes Rivale bracelet Hermes Rivale bracelet

Can’t believe this beautiful Hermes Rivale bracelet is finally mine! I received this as a surprise early birthday present from my boy Jon. He knows I have been eyeing this for a long time but have not been able to find my size in Melbourne.

He visited the Hermes boutique on Madison Avenue, when he asked for the Rivale braceletย in black Chamonix calfskin with gold hardware the sales assistant mentioned it was unlikely that they would have this in stock because the black and gold combination is very popular.

Moreover, this bracelet in size XS is even more rare. Finding this bracelet in New York was just meant to be!


  1. Hi Mel~ Love your bracelet! I’ve got one too in purple and gold hardware… I love it to bitss and I am sure you will too! You are right, the XS is extremely rare and was lucky enough to find one too. I like your PS11! Did you get that in NY ? Do you mind telling me how much you got that for?

    • Hi Tash! I’m so happy with my Hermes Rivale and have been wearing it nearly everyday! Yes I bought mine in New York on Madison Avenue. I bought it for $1763 AUD. Are you thinking of getting one? Mel xx

  2. The Rivale looked really good on you and its goes well with your outfits! No, I’m not sure if I wanna get the bag but it has been on my wish list for a while ๐Ÿ˜€ Looks tempting when I saw it in your NY photos.. lol I’ll let you know if I do end up getting it. I saw one in sorbet but not too sure about it.. I still prefer the black. What do you think?

    • This bag has been on my wishlist for a while! The reason I waited until New York to buy it is because I wasn’t sure whether to get the classic or the mini and wanted to try it on in real life before deciding. I personally think black is more versatile. Also with light coloured bags I am always worried that it will get dirty easily and colour might transfer onto the bag, in particular new jeans. With that being said, if you have many black bags already, you should go for something different! It will be great for spring/summer! Mel xx

      • Thanks for the advice Mel. Actually I have forgotten about the colour transfer factor completely and I agree with you! Come to think of it, I don’t actually have a proper casual black bag. I’ve got my chanel jumbo which I don’t consider as a very versatile casual bag. Maybe I’ll wait for a while and maybe the temptation to buy the ps11 will go away ! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • I caved! ๐Ÿ™ couldn’t resist the temptation! I’m telling myself that this bag is my threat for myself for this year’s birthday! ๐Ÿ˜€
