My New York Balenciaga experience and purchase.....*pics*

  1. Hi ladies

    I did it....I managed to lose my partner for a few hours during our visit to New York (he wanted to do a tour of a baseball stadium...I didn't) and managed to visit both Barneys and BALNY.

    Barneys was disappointing....didn't see anything I would want to buy. I was particularly looking for something in Vert Thyme, but they only had it in the city and I think part time and both were in the giant hardware.

    I then ventured to BALNY. I see what you mean by the cave. However the sales assistant was very nice, and whilst again they didn't have much in VT (except a work I think), I ended up buying a step in the Olive. They also had the brief in olive with giant silver hardware, and I must admit I was sorely tempted.

    I was surprised that the step is smaller than expected, probably city size.

    Anyway she is a beauty, and I am delighted with my purchase.....

  4. great combination of style and leather - I am the biggest VF fan! The leather is amazing on yours!
     
  5. Thanks Nanaz, CoutureObsessed & Alisonanna.

    I'm really chuffed with this style, colour and the 07 leather has been gorgeous.
     
  6. Oooooooh ... very nice! I had seen the Step style in Italy (in the Violet color) but I resisted because (as you say) it seemed to be the same size as the City and I really prefer a larger bag. Your bag is indeed a beauty ... CONGRATULATIONS!
     
  7. it's gorgeous.. i love the color and this style.. congrats!!
     
  8. wow, VF is lovely. almost metallic looking but not as 'flashy'. congrats on a unique buy!
     
  9. F&G!!!!! You ventured away from the day bag! THat is one good lookin' yummy step! I love vert fonce, you have to post a modeling pic. SOme many people have questions about the step, it would probably be very helpful. I hope you are having a good time in NYC, will you be there for the New Year? Happy Holidays!
