  1. I checked and don't see a specific thread dedicated to showing the differences between a NEW bag and a BROKEN-IN bag in the SAME style shown SIDE-BY-SIDE.

    This may help those new to a style who want to see what a bag can eventually look like with loving use.



    Here is my never-used Ink Shrug with her frequently used sister, Miss Grenat:

    This is a great thread Addy and it makes all the difference!! I returned a day bag because I didn't think it looked right on me--not like on some of the girls here in the modeling thread. I thought maybe I'm too tall for the day?? I didn't realize eventually this beautiful slouchy silhouette appears. Now I want a day bag again.:yes:

    Not sure if you read my post in the Help me identify this bal thread, but I was questioning what bag the model was carrying because I didn't get that look with my Day bag.:shame:

    Oh, and btw, you're bags are always so gorgeous!

  4. Breaking them in really does make a difference. I love all my broken in bags the most!
     
  5. Gorgeous Jira, the bag and color!:drool:
     
  6. More more I want to see more! Gorgeous bags ladies! :drool:
     
  7. I can see how the leather starts to loosen up and get slouchy as it breaks in but how about the touch of it? Does it get softer, silkier over time?
     
  8. Addy, do you need help breaking in this gorgeous ink bag??
    .........there would be no charge:winkiss:

    Lighting makes the bag look darker in the first 2 pics and lighter in the last 3 but the true color is somewhere in between...
