SO I got my first Balenciaga yesterday, and I "blind ordered" it (as someone put it in another thread), and I wasn't sure what year and leather I was getting. It is guaranteed authentic or my money back and I have 5 days from when it is shipped to return it if I have to. My only concerns are that I received the wrong tag for my bag since my tag says CEINTURE on it. Also, I think my bales may be off? Or not? And one more thing, I read on one of the reference topics that a real Balenciaga should not come with the extra tassel rolled up in a circle. But mine did. My leather is quite shiny and I heard that it will wear off with more use. I would like to know what year my bag is, though. The silver tag inside my bag is also slightly crooked and has a scratch on the number part. If anyone can help me with the year of my bag, and whether it really is authentic (I want to make sure!), I'd appreciate it! Oh and excuse my poor quality close-up photos. Thanks!
