Hi, I finally drove to Fed Ex and picked up my box from Aloha Rag! I have never gotten a Balenciaga in A Bal Box! It took me a while to get it open, but when I did..... I can't believe how gorgeous the Violet First is It is so perfect and evenly distressed with NO flaws. The tassles are lovely and not thin... The leather is so much thicker than my Violet Step and City. I really had no idea how perfect the First is for me. I filled it up with my stuff immediately and could even get a water bottle in it if I had to. I can't believe i waited so long I am going to try to post bigger pics.
