Dorinda Medley has a seriously impressive collection of designer shoes and handbags that she keeps ever so neatly organized in her impeccable closet. There's a spot for every one of her pricey purses, but there is only one high-end carry-all that holds a special place in Dorinda's heart.

The Real Housewives of New York City beauty shared the touching story behind her most beloved expensive handbag in a recent interview with Us Weekly when she hosted a glitzy event in conjunction with high-end resaler Rebag in New York City, which Carole Radziwill, D'Andra Simmons, and Margaret Josephs attended. And though she may be eyeing a few new luxe purchases this season, Dorinda revealed that this Hermés bag is one she'll "never get rid of." 

"My favorite one is the year after I was married to Richard, he brought me to Paris for my birthday and he brought me for lunch at L’Avenue and then he brought me to Hermès and he had them make my first Birkin bag,” she said. “He brought me into the back room and they unfolded it and it’s still my favorite. I’ll never get rid of that bag.”

How sweet is that?
