Well, Ayla got me on a search this morning.... My SA in Florida E-mailed me this just now. That is the actual bag that is available to me....also the cognac with the sequins that SJP has been photographed with. I am not going to take either.:sad: The metallic is too gold for me and big! I wanted the hobo in metallic, not the spy. Hard to let go....what do you think?:sad:

wow that's pretty. but i like it in petro better...

He called last week with a petrol but my husband answered the phone and told him to call back. The SA told me tonight that he forgot to call me back and it was sold....he actually laughed when he said that!:evil: Oh well...

Should I let the metallic go?...He sold 2 of them today, it's the last one!

sorry to hear about that! it's a beautiful bag, but the combo of metallic and spy probably make it a little too trendy for long term, so like the others said, maybe it's a blessing in disguise.

speaking of metallic and too trendy, what about pewter balenciaga? i'm to the point where i have to buy now or forever hold my peace, and the pewter is dark enough to be useful after the trend is less trendy (at least i think it is), but i don't know. i'm so torn! any opinions? i know this is off the subject...

I think that the pewter balenciaga is a keeper (beautiful color, classic shape) and will be useful after the metallic trend is over, very much like I am sure the anthracite paddy is a keeper .. huh, as I was typing, I realized that fayden owns both :amuse:

thank you for the reassurance! it makes me feel a lot better, since it's an ebay auction and i can't have it held for me while i decide. i'm 10000% sure it's authentic, i've talked to a lot of people about the seller and gotten a million extra pics, so now i just have to know for sure. i've got like a day. i can picture myself wearing it with like everything in my summer wardrobe, though, because i tend to go a little funkier in summer than in winter, and i love the color and style...i think i might make a thread about this. hmmm.

fayden has great taste, by the way :smile:

Amanda ... DEFINITELY, ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY get the Pewter B-Bag now!!! Frankly, I'm surprised that someone didn't jump on that baby when it was first put up by Maerim. Friends of mine who managed to get their hands on one all say it's their favorite bag. Because it's not "silver" per se, it doesn't look tacky, but yet, it can look classy for evening as well as with jeans during the day.

Good luck girlfriend! :biggrin:

When I first saw this bag, I SO wanted it!!! I've still been thinking about it; I can't believe that it's still around!
