FINALLY HERE!!! after a long waiting period (and having the bag sent to a different country), balny was nice enough to send me this bag (as a replacement) while they recalled the other one. long story but here are pictures!! i love this bag, the color is very purple/saturated and perfectly distressed, my only concern is that it might be a little dry?? okay, enough talking. PICTURES! also the violet city that i purchased from balparis about a month ago. i love balparis! can't say enough good things about them -- great service, fast delivery.
