Dang I should be working on my thesis right now but this stuff keeps irking me. Last weekend, my SO went to pick up my teal day off the carpet and didn't realize it had long tassels. I hear it from the living room ... ssnnnnnapppppppp! He was really sorry about it too . And the "best" thing was, I had been restoring split tassels with so much care and glue for over two hours the day before (and if you knew me you'd be like ). So I took that tassel off and sacrificed my only replacement tassels. Wonder how long they're gonna last. No replacement tassels in teal at BalNY or anywhere else! Then as most of you know probably by now I am looking for a tuquoise '05 bag. I found a few and everytime there was something, like no int'l shipping or split tassels or over-the-top pricing. I don't want to spend $1500 if possible, I've seen them on eBay for $1100-1200. Now I might get one, a city, and just now I found out that I will get the dentelle speedy too when it gets in So what do I do now? Now I suddenly can have both? I want to buy just one, both would be too much $$$ (and silly) considering we're going to Paris of all places soon. Then I went to a local Balenciaga-carrying boutique and asked about aquamarine, my third dilemma. The bit**y sales lady showed me some "bags". All were the giant hardware and I told her the giant hw wasn't my favorite. She went what's giant hardware? She didn't know a single bag style, color, description, what aquamarine or a city was, and I had to tell her. They had no f*ing idea what I was talking about. At the end she went "you sure know Balenciaga" and I wanted to say "you sure do not" but what for. Didn't want to flood her in her feeble attempt to grow a brain Anyway, no idea about what if anything would be coming in. HOWEVER I saw the vert gazon brief (with giant hardware...) and the color's gorgeous!!! I'm so not a green person color-wise but it's fresh and striking. Wow. Sorry for the longest post ever and thanks for reading .
