I know these pictures are long overdue, but my camera was at a friend's house... I proudly present... my first ever Balenciaga bag, my most beloved treasure, the incredibly light and soft Ink Purse!!! I got this from Bal Paris. The leather had no white marbling but was quite wrinkled. As I could not find Lubriderm here in Belgium, I bought Johnson's Softlotion lightcare and treated my bag twice. I love the effect: it has removed part of the iridescent glaze on the bag and evened out the lines. I hope the bag will get even more matte with time. I love my baby!!! As you can see, I almost carry her as a pet, under the arm. The color is a very dark navy, showing a hint of purple undertone in the sunlight. I'll post more pics in the other relevant sections. PS I hope pictures display properly, I have never done this before.
