When it comes to our homes, we also have a wish-list of sorts, filled with items we hope to one day soon have, and if you're curious about what's topping my list? Well, that's simple: it's the Hermès Avalon blanket.
See, the Hermès blanket is more than just a typical throw blanket; to me, it is "the" blanket. It's the equivalent of a Birkin for your home and provides the same exclusive feeling that any other designer shoe or handbag gives.
It speaks to me, and it has spoken to me ever since I first spotted it in the Sex and the City movie. Remember Carrie Bradshaw wrapped up in this blanket after dealing with her heartbreak/wedding fiasco from Big? If so, same, and this only added to its appeal.
To the point, I made it my mission to one day own this iconic piece. But, in true Hermès fashion, it also comes with a pretty hefty price-tag. So, I started a "rainy day" fund so I could one day wrap myself up in this beloved blanket. Admittedly, I had a ways to go—until today.
