Wow- I'm amazed. It's like I go in circles with the wrong styles or colors or materials or whatever........ it's been a long long long journey through bag land this past year and I'm very happy to be **sorta** ending it with this bag. First off the '05 leather is amazing. This one... is "fluffy" if leather can even be called that- "spongy" even- the tassles are amazing- squishy fluffy tassles. The style: A+++++ I thought too that it would be weird- sausage like- unnatural even. But heck NO! I think part of this has to do with the leather also- b/c when I wear it- it's droopy and amazing. Love the length of the shoulder strap - when carrying it's easy to get in and out of. Balenciaga scored when they created this style b/c it's extra roomy, not as tall as the city, and has easy access when your in a hurry. Right on and HIGH FIVE to all the other TWIGGY owners out there! The color!: I guess I love bags that are 'muted' and this is a muted light blue- like Twiggers told me- it is like looking up at the sky- and to me- that a natural color that wouldn't distract so much~ but it's light so it has a *kick* to it! I wear very plain colors and I like my bag to be the star. Now I realllly want a Vert Thyme twiggy..... (gosh- too bad they didn't come in MINI- giant hardware...... I really love bling too!- oh well- I can't have my cake and eat it too) Presenting my 05 Twiggy in Sky Blue w/another bag .... what was this called??
