She's here and she's perfect...my new rouge vif city! (pics)

  1. After months of waiting, my rouge vif city is finally here--and she is even more spectacular than I expected! Joseph at Bal NY did an outstanding job choosing a deep red bag with slight distressing but not veiny at all. I was expecting the color to be on the orange-red side (like the wallets and day bags I've seen) but instead it's a rich, true red. Wow! I think I'm in love!:love:

    By the way, has anyone else noticed how securely Bal NY tapes their shipments? It took me about 20 minutes to break into the shipping box, which I finally ended up destroying because I was so eager to see the bag. I wonder if they do this to prevent theft or if they simply get a charge out of imagining all of us going crazy trying to get the box open?

  7. Beautiful!!!

    I am laughing at your post because I don't find the shipping box that hard to open but the Balenciaga box KILLS me! I hate to even store my bags in the boxes because they're so hard to open. I need a crow bar!
     
  8. Congratulations! The bag is so gorgeous and you got such a fabulous color.
     
  9. What a perfect looking bag!! Congrats on getting such a beauty.
     
  10. Yes, you are right! After I destroyed the shipping box I had to contend with the Balenciaga box. I was extremely frustrated when that box wouldn't open either. I was starting to think I'd never get to my bag!

    Also--thanks to everyone for their nice comments. It's such a wonderful feeling to anticipate the arrival of a bag and have it be even more than you expected when you finally receive it!

    I had to shake, rattle, and pull on each side to get it to open!:lol:
