I am THRILLED! After lusting and lusting after this bag for so long and it being my HUGEST regret... regret no more!!! I now have the bag that got away! Many many thanks to a great friend and huge sweetheart.
Background is I saw this bag in the store but I was trying to be good and save money/spend less so I walked away from it on a friday night. I spent the night tossing and turning and not being able to get it out of my head so I went back the next day on Saturday and it was gone!! I wasn't able to find it retail after that.
So I'm SO HAPPY that after all this time it's finally made it's way to me! This is the bag that made me notice Balenciaga and that captured my heart from the first time I laid eyes on it and now I am as much in love with her as I was back then... even more now that I've learnt so much about bbags from you fine PFers!
So without further delay... I introduce you to my original dream bbag - a Pewter First!
