As you prob know, my friend bought a black city, I thought the bag was fake, turned out it wasn't anyway she agreed to sell to me as she is not the biggest Balenciaga fan anyway, she just fancied one. It arrived today and there were NO customs charges! Yay! It is so so so soft, the leather is even softer than the 05 bubblegum I had, it is kind of thinner than my rouge vif, but kind of not if you know what I mean. The bag is so soft and squishy I could literally roll it into a ball! Only concern though is the metal bits on the back of the handles are round and smooth and those on my rouge vif have two grooves in them and also, there are two places where there is a little bit of loose white fluff, is this ok? Please let me know!
