OK, listen — I wouldn't exactly consider myself a ~fashun~ goddess. Never have been and never will be.

Which is why, just last week, as I re-watched Gilmore Girls for the 500th time, I found myself asking the age-old question, "What the fuck is a Birkin bag?" The WB / BuzzFeed And why is it such a big freakin' deal??? If you don't recall, in the episode "Welcome to the Dollhouse", Logan makes a ~grand gesture~ by buying Rory a super trendy Birkin bag as a gift. The WB She isn't WILDLY impressed because she's a down-to-earth binch, like myself. Emily Gilmore, on the other hand, loses her freaking shit because she's the classy, rich broad I aspire to become after I marry for money! So just how much does this bag REALLY cost? I decided to do some résearch (i.e. a Google search) because I'm curious and broke, and what I found shook me to my Forever 21-covered core.

A new Birkin bag can cost anywhere from $12,000 to TWO 👏 HUNDRED 👏 THOUSAND 👏 DOLLARS 👏 Comedy Central, The WB Yeah, you read that right!! $200,000!!!!!! E! The bags are so exclusive that Hermès refuses to disclose how many they make a year, just like I refuse to disclose how many times I've been to Chipotle this month! It's called class! You can't simply purchase a Birkin bag off the Hermès website when you're drunk at 3 a.m. either, and they're definitely not available on Amazon Prime (believe me, I checked)!

And listen... I'm fully aware Logan is rich and irresponsible so save me the lecture, but DO YOU *KNOW* WHAT YOU COULD BUY with even just $12,000 dollars???

Netflix, The WB It'd pay for almost 40% of a year's worth of Yale tuition in 2005. The WB, Netflix You could buy 524 of these very reasonably priced faux-leather crossbody bags from Forever 21 and you wouldn't even have to worry about smearing your wet n wild lipstick in it! Forever 21, Vine My wallet is choking! Moral of the story — I don't think I TRULY realized how rich Logan Huntzberger was until this exact moment and I'm going to need someone to give me his number as ASAP as possible! The WB / Sarah Wainschel / BuzzFeed I don't care if he's a fictional character, MAKE IT HAPPEN! And now that I'm up to speed on the world of impractical handbags, all the rich™ and fashionable™ can proceed to drag my liberal arts major ass in the comments! 😘 Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Gold Circle FIlms Toodles!
