I've now bought three of my Bbags from a woman my dad knows from golf. She's great - she has a beautiful collection, but doesn't like to deal with selling bags on eBay after a few bad experiences, so mostly just sells them to friends. Anyway, I bought my black City from her very cheaply because it was very faded and thin, and it's gotten a lot of use, but it's time to retire it. I think I'll keep it around because I have the room and doubt I'd get any real money for it and someday I might want to carry a Bbag I don't care about as much... but I did want to replace it with another black bag. So I bought her '05 Day! I told her almost a year ago when I first saw her wear it that if she ever wanted to sell that one to sell it to me, and she finally decided to get something brighter, so it's mine! The leather is so beautiful, it's very evenly distressed and quite thick, and she only used it a handful of times since she bought it two years ago, so it's still shiny. I know you can't really tell from my pictures, but this is probably the best leather on any of my Balenciagas. The Day size and shape is so nice and versitile; it fits loads but doesn't look bulky, and even though I'm only 4'11" it doesn't look huge on me. Plus, it's so edgy and rocker-chic!
