BPS joins the flap club! With a REISSUE! PICS!

  1. I always swore I wasn't a flap person, and I always thought I hated metallics. So how I ended up with this STUNNING BEAUTY is a humorous mystery to me! Ladies (and gentlemen) I present to you my new baby- A Dark Silver Reissue 227!! (And thanks to a special PF'er for her help!)

    I cannot get over the color of this bag. It's so hard to accurately capture in photos. But it is breathtaking! And very chameleon-like! Everything you've ever heard about it going with everything is TRUE!! I think the size is perfect for me, because I like to edge stuff out a little, and the larger flaps are good for that. (This is particularly easy to accomplish by wearing it messenger style! :tup:) And while the baby cabas and P-B totes are both even bigger, and I like them on me; as far as flaps go, the 228 would be a little overwhelming on my frame.

    I LOVE the chain on this. The length is PERFECT for me. Doubled, it fits right where I want it to under my arm, and singled and slung messenger style, it hits me at just the right point under my waist! :yes:

    For reference, I am just under 5'2" and 92 lbs.

    So, enjoy the pics, and I will continue to stare at her IRL :love:!!

    Pretty lady:
