Emerald was the colour that made me fall in love with Balenciaga early last year. When I finally bought myself an Emerald bag this spring, though, I just never really learned to love it. It wasn't as vibrant as I was hoping for, the leather was disappointing, and I decided the City just wasn't for me, so it got sold over the summer. I love my Vert Gazon, but I really wanted a dark green bag too, so... My Pine Twiggy arrived from BalNY yesterday! It is absolutely the most beautiful green (my boyfriend put it best when he called it "beer bottle green" - that is exactly what it looks like). It's for sure my favourite Balenciaga green: deep and saturated but not dull at all. It's much brighter and more vivid than Sapin (the second picture shows it with my Sapin Coin Purse). I just love it! Thank you to twiggers for the tip-off that this beauty was waiting for me at BalNY!
