Okay ladies here I am finally with photos of 08 Pink to post. Since I am known as the 05 BG Pink Queen around here, I have to tell you all, I am crazy for 08 BG Pink as well! I have had my criticisms of late regarding the quality control issues with new bags, and the customer service issues at Bal, NYC, and I was quite worried when I saw the initial pictures of 08 Pink. It looked very dark to me, and like nothing at all that resembled pink. I am very happy to say that Balenciaga has really won my heart again with 08 BG Pink. I got a City and a First, and the City absolutely blew me away! It truly took my breath away like only bags from past seasons have done. The color is gorgeous, and the leather is thick, smooshy, and very similar to my favorite year for leather 2005. The tassels which were incredibly thin and fragile in 2006 and 2007, are super thick and not fragile at all. On to Bal in NYC. I have a new SA named Bill and he is sweetheart, and has done his best to pick out bags that I will love! And because of him, I am not afraid to call Balenciaga anymore! Since the First was a shade darker than the City, and the leather was more distressed, I was on the fence on whether it was a keeper. A day later Bill called to say there was a Pink Day that came in with my name on it, and as soon as I saw a photo of it, I knew I wanted to exchange the First for the Day. It will be my first Day bag so I am very excited. It will be arriving tomorrow or Thursday. Okay I will shut up now and get to the photos.... Above the bags are photographed outside in direct sunlight. Below is some indoor photos, the first of both bags is without flash. Below the City alone indoors without flash... Below is the City again indoors, but with using the flash... Below are some very realistic comparison photos using the mirrors. On the left I have two mirrors from my 05 BG First and City, in the middle are the mirrors from the 08 bags, the darker one being the one that came with the First, and on the right are the mirrors that came with my 05 Magenta Box and City. The more purple looking mirror belongs to my more purple Magenta Box... The last photo in this group is more fun with mirrors. The mirrors from all my bags... Comparison photos up next!
