Anyone have the neon pink or green LE handbags? Curios to know how they hold up to normal use. Also curios to know if you just wear in spring or all year around. Modeling shots are always fun.m

Thanks,

First of all, there were 2 versions of the "Lizard-stamped" bags:

> 2010 - Anniversary Limited Editions
> 2011 - "Neon" version

IMO .. the 2010 bags were far superior. The leather was soft and smooshy, more like the 'regular' Balenciaga bags. The Neon version .. the leather was stiff and much more fragile. For some strange reason, the leather would stick to itself, and if you attempted to un-stick them, the lizard stamping would be lifted off. Don't get me wrong, they are pretty .. but are much too fragile for everyday use. I sold my Neon Blue one not soon after getting it; thankfully mine never 'stuck' but I heard plenty of stories of this happening.
