    Took Quiz, pinned me correct. Didn't think it would, because I felt like we don't have any distinctive talking accents or sayings...oh well

    Friendly advice even that you didnt ask for it. Grab a piece of white poster board to "curve" from the back to the bottom to place the shoes on. The seam on the bottom that runs right though the middle of the shoes is really distracting and the pictures are so nice otherwise

    This is awesome! Is that for a Macbook Pro or Air? Deets on the case?

    MacBook Pro 15". It's homemade by someone on etsy. That's all I know so far. It doesn't really provide much drop protection.

    While taking pictures I noticed two very small holes (not really visible) on the sleeves and a few small spots I missed in the store (they blend in with the pattern--only noticed under my bright lights) which should easily clean out, but I have so much stuff lying around anyway, I figured I'd offer this up for cost+shipping to a thread member. Merry Thriftmas, all.

    Found these two yesterday, first Hermes, they feel like really nice silk, especially the paisley one, but I don't know much about the fakes, any ideas if they're real?

    I think the first one is fake because it says 'Hermes Paris.' I'm not expert though ...

    I just did a little research, apparently the ones that say "Hermes - Paris" can either be the heavy silk "Lorde", or the patterned "H" ones. Comparing the paisley to the crow one, the paisley feels much like heavier silk, so that might be the reason.
