My first Bbag

  1. I think this is 04 Dark Turquoise according to the tag.
    I am not an expert, so please correct me if I am wrong. The tag says 0507C/115748 3444.
    Without experts' confirmation at the authentiate thread, it could not have been mine.

    It was not in great condition, though it was not that bad, so I added some Renapur and ironed wrinkled area.

    I love the color and soft leather. Now I want the green City or Work...:p

    Thank you for reading!
     
  2. Congrats on your first Bbag. :yahoo:I am not an expert on older Bbags but it looks like Indigo to me (i could be wrong). :shrugs:Either way it is gorgeous. Enjoy it.:tup:
     
  3. Beautiful bag.

    Nanaz: It has pewter h/w so it cant be indigo?
     
  4. Def. looks like Dark Turq to me. Congrats on such a rare find!
     
  5. OOOH I love it!!! WOWZA, enjoy her :party:
     
  6. That is definitely Dark Turquoise from 04. I LOVE that color blue - it is one of my favorites!

    I could hardly believe my eyes when you said that you ironed a wrinkled area on the bag. Is that right?! Weren't you terrified of hurting the leather? I'm not very domestic, so perhaps ironing leather isn't as difficult as I think.
     
  7. Beautiful! I love the combo of the hardware and leather color! Congrats!
     
  8. I'll bet if you did a search on ironing bags, yours would be the only one to come up!
    It is an absolutely gorgeous bag - congrats!
     
  9. What an incredible find. I love the old ones with silver hardware.

    I want to know too how you ironed the wrinkles. What did you do?

    Its a gorgeous bag with that soft leather balenciaga was best known for (in my opinion). Congratulations!!!
     
  10. Congrats, the color and leather are stunning! I agree that it's turq. 04.
     
  11. One of my absolute favorite B bag colors. Congrats on finding one of the harder to find colors!!!!! A real beauty!:tup:
     
  12. Thank you all!

    I read a plenty of claims-to-be leather proffesional sites regarding ironing leather in advance. They say it is perfectly safe if I use the lowest heat setting with brown paper bag between iron and leather.

    A wrinkled area was the top part in both front and back, it got curled (rolled) up because of wrinkles and dryness, I believe. Discoloration and scuff are very minor overall, but that curled up area on the top part really bothered me. Ironing made the area a little bit shiner and darker, but it is not noticeeable. It definately worked for me. However, I do not recommned it unless you are that desperate like I was :nogood:

    I hope you can understand what I am talking about. Excuse my English (I am a Japanese).
