I finally understand the love - my 1st Bbag!

  1. My 1st Bbag came - and she's GORGEOUS! :yahoo: I finally, really get it now...the leather, the smooshy loveliness - I finally understand the addiction:nuts: I got her pre-loved, but she's in great shape...the handles are a little dark, but it's not too bad as it's a brown bag...it actually looks a lot better in person than it did in the auction...which may be why I got such a good deal (about $600) I thought she was lovely right out of the box, but I remember hearing that S/S 06 leather was a little thin (she's an '06 cognac), so I lubridermed her (mostly it was just an excuse to play with her - my DH thinks I'm looney!:roflmfao:), and OMG she's TDF...smooshy, and soft, and possibly even chewy - well, I'm still trying to figure out chewy :shrugs:

    Anyway, I took some pics, but they are all inside w/flash, so she's not as shiny as the pics make her look...

    And thank you all so much - I used all of the info in the reference library & the help of everyone on the "Authenticate this" thread to make sure I got a gorgeous authentic bag for my 1st Bal...my poor DH, he doesn't know the madness he's started (She's my 30th b-day present!)
