Is this cornflower? Am I crazy?

  1. So I ordered a city in cornflower, and it came and was beautiful... except for a big ugly scratch on the back (way beyond normal distressing, etc.) so I had to exchange it. At last today I got the new bag, but it seems much darker than I remember the cornflower looking. I've compared it to other pics people have posted of their cornflower bags but mine still seems dark. I've attached pics (at least, I hope they'll get attached!)... what do you guys think? Am I just crazy?? I know it's hard to get a sense from a pic online, but what do you think?

  2. I think it looks great!! I love that color!!
     
  3. Maybe some of the other girls can post their pics here so you can compare colors. Also, check out the other thread going right now on what is your favorite color- someone has a cornflower twiggy posted that you can compare yours to. But remember, that all dylots are different, which is what makes these bags so unique. Yours really is beautiful! Congrats and enjoy!!!
     
  4. You're not crazy! That's def not cornflower. Someone made a mistake :mad:
     
  5. What color is that??? I thought it was conflower too:shame:
     
  6. I agree with Livethelake. That is not cornflower. It is a pretty shade of blue though. Where did you get it from? Here's a pic of my cornflower City for comparison.

  7. Hmmm almost looks inbetween an ink and a cornflower...but when I take a picture of my ink, the flash makes it look much like that first picture..... Isn't there a color # on the balenciaga ticket that comes with the bag (At the top left it says 2006 and then over to the right there is another #,,, is that the color #)?? If that is a color number then maybe give everyone that number and someone with an ink and cornflower can compare?
     
  8. Actually, here's a better pic of my cornflower City. The last pic I posted it looks darker than it actually is. This pic shows the color better.

  9. My Ink is much much darker than that color so I doubt its ink
     
  10. jessd, what is the letter on the front of the silver tag? If your bag is from this season, I think it has to be cornflower. Every time I have seen the cornflower in person I always think to myself, "it's much darker than I remember it." I think the camera flash washes the color out sometimes. It might be navy, from Fall 2005, but navy and cornflower (despite what one might deduce from their names) are virtually the same exact color. I think the color on the navy swatch is a little darker than what it is IRL.
     
  11. I think they look similar.

  12. Ya know it really looks like indigo to me. Where did you purchase it from? It really is pretty.
     
  13. It does look darker than the cornflower. ^^^good question. Where was it purchased from? I would contact them to be sure!
     
  14. I looked at the swatches and I think it looks like cornflower. It's not navy. The cornflower has the "whitish" undertones in the creases and yours has that too.
