  1. Hi everyone! I've fallen for Bal hard. I've done reveals of some of these, and some I haven't - so I thought I'd do a collection thread. I have 12 now plus some accessories, and I'm pretty content. Here we go, one by one and then collection shots :biggrin:
     
  2. I'm going to go in the order I got the bags. First up is 2007 Black RH Work. It was starting to fade/greenish hue, but with some conditioner and then LMB color enhance it's back to black!

    Next came 2007 GSH Ocean Work. Love love love this glossy, fluffy leather.

  3. Then came 2008 Sahara GSH City. This is my only city and a little small for me, but I love the color combo so much I can't see ever letting her go. The leather on the butt (that's for you Maxxout) is especially glossy and amazing.

  4. Next up is 2008 Black Cherry RH Work. I was craving something in red and thought this might be the trick. It didn't satisfy my red craving (more on that later), but I really love this dark red/burgundy hue and leather. Plus, I got it for a great price! (Handles look really dark but aren't irl)

    Then, I had to find a flat clutch and found this 2009 Maldives GSH on the bay. Love the functionality of it.

  5. Saw this next one on Bonanzle and it needed some tlc. 2006 Camel/Cognac Work. Handles were very dark, so I tried an experiment and applied Tarrango dye on the handles in a similar shade. I'm not toally happy with the result, but I think it looks better than the super dark handles. What do you all think? I was also able to find new tassels for it.

    Next I lucked out and found a 2005 Grey RH Work on Ebay for an amazing price. Only thing wrong with it is darker handles, but they aren't too bad irl and go with the vintage vibe. This leather is like silk!

    Another HG bags find - and this one really is my HG. I was still craving something in a brighter red and I found the perfect shade and shape - 2010 Sang GSH Midday. Love Sang, the leather, and the Midday. This one is my all time Bal favorite!! (so far)

  7. 2004 Lilac Weekender - my first Weekender and only bag before 2005. It needed some tlc, so I applied conditioner, LMB color enhance (which did wonders), and had the broken zipper fixed. Love this bag so much, and it's soo smooshy and broken in!

    Another Ebay find - 2007 or 2008 (not sure of year) GGH Part Time. I think the Gold Hardware looks great with this combo.

  8. Last bag! This was a total impulse buy last week. 2006 Floral Toile RH Work. I was surprised how much I like this bag. The floral pattern is really different and the silver hardware looks great. Plus, it is pretty much new!
