Oh wow. I didn’t even check the date when I replied to this. Haha
But I’m glad you were able to figure out that it DIDN’T work for you (and that you didn’t enjoy the experience of buying it off b.com). I think it comes with the territory of buying bags... you learn as you go. This is why tPF is such a good resource... plus you get input from other seasoned bag gals.
What bag did you end up getting then? Or are you still on the hunt?
Actually I bought the city bag (which I ended up returning) on Yoox. I purchased Balenciaga Souvenir bag on b.com and had a very bad customer service experience. I got delivered the wrong color of that souvenir bag 3 times!! with no help or response from customer service. They responded to my first email and promised to send the correct color and just ignored my emails after additional two wrong color deliveries...
Eventually I got so annoyed that didn't want that bag anymore and bought a couple of LV bags instead
I actually think I "over-purchased" from LV trying to compensate for the bad Balenciaga experience lol. I ended up buying Noe bb in DA, Noe petit in mono and Pochette Accessories in DA I definitely didn't need all of these, I decided to keep Noe bb as a gift for my mom, Noe Petit mainly for travel and when I need a tote and am mainly using Pochette Accessories which is a good size for me as a day bag for when I'm out and about.
I was also considering Bottega mini pouch, but when I saw it in person I didn't like the shape, too triangle for my taste. Now I'm also looking at getting Prada re-edition 2005 in black, I realized that my only black bags are Chanel and I want some variety and something more modern.
I guess there never enough bags
