OCEAN WORK w/ SILVER GIANT HARDWARE...

  1. As I had predicted in my Early Fall Review
    http://forum.purseblog.com/balenciaga/coral-blues-fw-07-early-review-aint-going-147776-9.html

    My very first Fall/Winter 2007 Collection purchase is an OCEAN WORK with Silver Giant Hardware...

    Photo from BALENCIAGA NEW YORK…
    the leather is absolutely gorgeous and even...

    And here she is, I received her yesterday…

    The Ocean Work I received is much lighter than the other Ocean’s I’ve seen…

    Here’s an Ocean Part Time from NM…(the color was adjusted to how it was when I saw the bag in person)…

    This photo is an accurate representation of my Ocean…

  2. Here’s the problem though…after receiving her yesterday, I realized that there’s a scratch on the leather (as if the leather is actually lifting…it’s about an inch long), I’m not being difficult but it’s something that I know I can’t and won’t get over. So I’m shipping her back.

    Not sure yet if I want to re-order the same style/color bag….

    I rarely ask but here goes…


    Which one to get…

    Stick to Ocean Work w/ Silver Giant Hardware….

    Or get Ms. Sienna Work w/ classic hardware…

  3. Argh!!! I love it! Congrats ICB.

    Omigosh, look at that expanse of soft leather in the group shot... Like a bed of Balenciaga
     
  4. Very nice... I'd say Ocean w/ SGH, it goes well with your collection of RH. :tup:
     
  5. Wow - I just love that colour its TDF - I say get another one:smile:
     
  6. The Ocean totally rocks the casba... I'd get the Ocean.:smile:
     
  7. Hmmm. The ocean color looks great with SGH although a bit washed out... but then again I like darker, stronger colors better.
    I'm thinking about the sienna color myself but I haven't seen it irl. If it were darker and rustier, I would get that, but I'm not sure... What about vert foncé or mogano?

    But if it's between those two - I would decide whether I like the SGH or not and go from there. Why were you not sure whether you would want to re-order the ocean work?

    EDIT: What color is that dark blue work (top left)? It's gorgeous!!
     
  8. I know this wasn't in the listed options, but have you considered Sienna w/ Giant Silver Hardware? I think that the contrast would be really striking w/out being to bling.
     
  9. Beautiful - I love it ICB! But you are right - you must send it back - a flaw like that on a brand new bag would bug me to death. I have to admit, I'm totally loving the sienna work - totally rich and TDF. If I was ABSOLUTELY FORCED TO PICK ONE STYLE, it would be the sienna. But you know what works best for you and your lifestyle. :yes:
     
  10. I would highly recommend SIENNA! Even my DH can't keep his hands off! The leather is amazing and the color is :tup:

  11. ICB~ what are the colors of your other blue works? I get confused~ so many blue colors to remember.
     
  12. :heart: I want to steal all of them!
     
  13. ICB - I would say the Ocean Work with SGH still. The Sienna Work reminds me a doctor's bag. Since you are an artist, I think the SGH Ocean Work fits you better. My humble opinion..........
     
  14. :tup:
     
  15. ICB, I love both the sienna and the ocean with SGH, and I think you'll end up getting both. (wink wink) So for starters I'd suggest that you replace the ocean, and then get the sienna after! Since you do make it clear that there will be more purchases from this season's collection!
