After thinking long and hard and much research on this lovely forum, I just stopped by Neiman Marcus and got my FIRST Balenciaga!!!! It's the Part-Time in black, but a shinier black than what's normal, I think... The SA was helpful and dug it out of the back for me, since I wanted something bigger than the City! It's GORGEOUS and I now know what all the ravings are truly about! PS, I'm a newbie on TPF, and this is my first big post!
