Okay b bag mavens. i have gone back and forth. i have an order in for a blue grey city at BALNY. So, I have some time.... spoke with Kim, my SA today (btw, very nice, i recommend) and she checked to see if they were getting the blue grey in a larger size. - Yes, Weekender. that is tooooooo big for me. I asked about the purse (that great picture of Gwen stefani made me want one) - nope. But BUT BUT she said they might be getting it in the afternoon. MY QUESTIONS ARE: 1) is the balenciaga appeal, in part, the shape, and if so, is the afternoon not as "balenciaga" as the city and other rectangular bags. is the afternoon shape less "balenciaga-y"? 2) i love this shape. all my purses are similar. should i branch out and keep the city. and will this purse, like my others, be deceptively large b/c of the narrowing opening. 3) has anyone seen this bag in real life. do you like it. what is the shoulder drop like??? any other details you want to share. I am so tempted to change my order. And if I could change it to a purse or a work in blue/grey, i would. i have good feelings about this color and so it is the determining factor.
