    Introducing...... My 2003 lilac flat hobo! :yahoo::woohoo::nuts:

    I was wondering if it would be too similar to the 2006 lilac, but as you can see, they are quite different. The 2006 is more of a lavender color. The 2003 is more rosy. This particular bag looks very vintage and it's a little faded, but I looove it!

    The leather is very soft and smooshy, it totally lives up to my expectations, but then, 2003 is my favourite Balenciaga year anyway! ;)

    I wore it once last week but it didn't feel right as the weather is gloomy and rainy here, so I guess I'll have to wait until spring to wear it more...:sweatdrop:

  14. Congrats!!! I guessed right...but I was late to this thread ;o)

    It looks so buttery soft...and smushy like marshmallow!!! :drool:
  15. Thank you all! Lilac 2003 has been my holy grail for more than a year, I had to be very patient because, let me tell you, they are pretty rare. I'm so happy that I finally have one!

    And the flat hobo is such a cool style! I'm still not decided on whether I prefer to wear it like a hobo or a messenger.
    The only thing I'm worried about is the opening on top of the bag, there's no closure or zipper, and when the bag is stuffed the metal tag shows! I guess I'm too particular about this but I don't like the tag of my bag showing. When the bag isn't that full the metal tag isn't exposed, though!

    I'll post more pics of my collection in a while, I haven't done that in ages!
