Hi Gals! I've been a lurker for a little while...I had heard of TPF before but it wasn't until I got hooked on B-bags through some local friends that I had to sign up to read more about them!! And today I brought home my first Balenciaga! My husband bought me the Blue India Day for Xmas. The positive is that I HAVE A B-BAG! The downer is that I have to wait til Xmas for it. But I don't really mind because I just am so jazzed that IT'S MINE, that I won't have to worry about them selling out as I have been hearing rumors of happening, and me having to pay retail+ for one on eBay in a month or two. My darling hubby was gracious enough to let me do a mini photo-shoot with the bag before he plucked it out of my sweaty little hands to hide away til Xmas. So here are some pictures. The color is divine, the veining is just right, the leather is really darn smooshy. I love how it just contours to your body...I am 5'7" so it feels like the perfect size for my body and my build. I fell in love when I saw the BI Day at this store 1.5 months ago, and I was lucky enough that they had one left for us to get it today. YAY for B-bags and wonderful husbands! Looking fwd to many more b-bags...shhh don't tell hubby!
