Well...I got my first b-bag a few months ago, and fell in love....a green shopper. Since then...the only bags I can think about are Balenciaga. Then I stumbled upon the metallic first in Milan Station...and had to make it mine. And last...at least for a long time...I bought the black hobo at Milan Station a few days ago!!! I love them all!!! If anyone can tell me info about the black bag...or how to figure out what year it is...please chime in!!
