So, I've been wanting to take collections pics for a long time. Now that I'm on a self-imposed strict ban, there's no better time. I assembled this collection with the intention of keeping all of these bags for the long haul and finally being Bal content (yeah right!)

First up, the crown jewel of my collection: 2007 Violet GGH Part Time

Some of the best leather I've ever seen. So in love with this one...

Next up is my 2007 Tomato SGH Part Time. Almost gave this one up, but so happy I got her back. Will never make that mistake again. This bag has the most beautifully, evenly distressed leather of any Bag I own.

My 2009 Pourpre GGH Part Time is one of my favorites. I know some have said this combo looks kind of blingy, but I think it's very elegant and special. The leather on this bag is just divine. For me, the more distressed, the better!!!!

It took me some time to fall for my Marine 2007 GGH Part Time. I paid more for this beauty than any of my other bags and was slightly disappointed when I took it out of the box. But then I carried it and fell in love. Then perfect, elegant deep blue. So timeless with the gold, I think.

Can you guys tell I'm a GH Part Time fiend? Kinda crazy, but it's really my absolute favorite, perfect style. Nothing else compares for me.

Next up is my Raisin GGH Part Time. I know this seems too similar to my Violet to justify keeping both, but I actually use and enjoy this bag, whereas the Violet is more of a collection piece. The leather on this bag is really wonderful.

Just two more part times to go!!!

Here's one of my favorites, though I haven't carried it yet. This is my SS 10 Anthra RGGH Part Time. I think it has the most distressed leather I've seen on an Anthra Part Time. Love everything about this bag. So cool.

Finally, this is my newest Part Time acquisition....2008 Amethyst GGH
I'm soooo not a pink girl, but the purple undertones in this color made me swoon for this bag. Probably the only pink I will ever wear, though I haven't done so yet :smile:

And yes, I do own several other styles. I'll just list and post them without editorializing. Leather and color were most important in picking these beauties...
