Hi Everyone! I'm looking for my very first Balenciaga and my SA called today to say she has an 08 Marine RH City AND a Black RH City on hold for me! Which should I choose??? :shrugs:

I had initially wanted a Black RH City for my first Bbag - and because I don't own a black bag. But when I saw the 08 Marine for the first time, I fell in love!! :nuts: What to do? Any advice you can give me would be very much appreciated! :yes: TIA! :heart:

Well - I'll be the first one to chime in here even though I am a raw recruit to Bbags. I say the Marine! Why? It seems to be the thing really calling your name. Yes the black is practical. Yes you need to get one. NEXT!!!

marine is a "once in a season" kind of color ;) black comes around every season! go for color on your first bbag and when you come back for more, try black :flowers:

I completely agree with the above posts. Get Marine now while it's out. You know you can always find a great black Bbag in the future. Plus, marine is a great neutral color that you can probably wear with a lot of things in your wardrobe.

Marine for sure. I was going to get a black work, but decided to hold off because I knew that I wasn't going to be able to buy another bbag for a good 6 months or so, so I got my sapphire day instead because its once in a season! once it's gone, it's gone! And colors go QUICK! And once they're gone, they're hard to find, and over retail! Good luck! :flowers:

Marine is gorgeous and adds some color to an outfit without overwhelming. A black city is a classic but what I love most about Bal is color, so I say marine!

Go with the Marine. I just bought it and the color is perfect, outside the color looks more royal blue. Beautiful bag, you won't be disappointed.

I agree with everyone here about getting the Marine...its a beautiful color that is also neutral. And you fell in love when you saw her! :love: You can get a black one later cuz they have black every season. Welcome to bbags! :smile:

So true. I agree with everyone else here. Love at first sight is rare, so get her before it's too late. Black will always be around and

If it will be your only city or at least the only city for a while, I say Black. I always vote for the color that will get the most use...

...however, if you plan on purchasing more or think that your wardrobe will promote Marine usage then get marine!
