The Ivore GGH finally gave in after weeks of browsing through this thread and bought my first balenciaga on eBay... woot! my baby arrived yesterday and I got to send her for some cleaning since it was pretty abused by its previous owner but i guess i'm still in love! going to treat her with some TLC... and and..! the leather is smooshy beyond belief... buttery soft to touch. Le Sigh. i know this is nothing compared to what some of you ladies have... but this little evil voice inside of me is telling me this will be the first of many to come... still eyeing the bordeaux as well as the eggplant. well maybe my next paycheck!
