Turned out the 'rejuvenation' process YC did left a bunch of film and grime. Lots of TLC later, he was okay (thank goodness!). Turns out I have a sample! It's a Pomegranate Blake from Blake's first year of production. Pom was the only Blake that season which came with canvas lining. Mine, however, has burgundy suede lining! So I have a rare little MJ snowflake!

I can't wait to see yours! You're gonna love the soft calf!!!

Here's a pic of my Blake - the handsome boy.
This picture kills me all the time!!! One of these days, I will get me a Blake!

Cee - if you're doing okay with Rocco's weight, you should be good with MJ...I imagine the weights are similar.

eehlers - AMEN SISTA!! must suffer for fashion, right?? i'm so glad u didn't send bad boy blake back!!! he's truly one-of-a-kind!!! i'm totally used to carrying heavy bags even though i have chronic shoulder pain (i tend to slouch alot lol) so i imagine i'll be fine!! i'll suffer for embellishments, studs, hardware, suede lining, and more studs!!

red, u should definitely check out MJ's older styles (blake, venetia, ursula, sophia, etc)!! it's a "either u love it or hate it" kinda relationship!! i didn't even notice these styles until of course TPF!! i swear this place is a blessing and a curse (mostly a blessing hehe)!! i'm still trying to find my perfect first stam, the style who initally brought me to TPF

After posting about him yesterday, I realized that I need to send some quality time with him. So I just loaded him up, so that he can be my date for the week. I love the three compartments...he keeps me organized.
