I got my first Balenciaga last week a beautiful Sapin Part-time!! The leather is incredible - smooth, thick and smooshy. The color is amazing - so rich and multidimensional. I love how Sapin can look bright and cheerful from one angle yet darker and conservative from another angle. The Part-time is just the right size for me. Its roomy and can hold a lot, but because the leather is so soft, it can squish up against me so its not too bulky. The shoulder strap is a great length and makes it easy to carry if I want to have my hands free. Im pretty sure this wont be my last Balenciaga. Since I cant get to the BalNY store (I have a young infant who Im not taking out in the winter weather), and I am eBay-challenged, I was lucky enough to learn about Sabines Boutique on tPF. Its so hard to find a legit seller of new Bbags online. I am PayPal-challenged too, so Diabro doesnt work for me either (Im not faxing my bank statements to prove that my credit card belongs to me, so sorry). Thankfully, Sabine was able to hook me up. The customer service was great too! Woo hoo!! Im a happy new member of the Bbag club!
