I am typically a RH girl and currently that is all I own! I however have totally fallen in love with the Midday thanks to Tokyo's beautiful mod pics! Being that it's only offered in GH, I am torn... I love, love, love the way it looks on the bag and on everyone else, but when I had a GH City bag in the past I was a bit overwhelmed by it! I have been able to track down a Tempete GSH Midday which I think is a stunning combination although not my first choice (those would be Officier or 08 Amethyst, both of which are pretty much impossible to find)! I am hoping for some help in the decision making department! I think this style would be great b/c it's very similar in shape to the Work which I also love but more of a shoulder bag which is better for my liefe style. Should I give this bag/combo a shot?

Definitely get the midday! I'm lusting over this style myself right now. In fact, I emailed Merlyn at Balenciaga Bahrain because I know sometimes they have sales. She told me they had GH middays available in the current season colors, which surprised me, because I didn't know they still made the midday, but sorbet may be a good sub for amethyst! Her email address is in the Bal Bahrain sale thread in the shopping subforum. I'm trying to get her to send a photo, just to be sure we're talking about the same bag - I'm afraid she's thinking of the day or something, just because I thought midday was discontinued. Anyway - whatever you decide to get, post pics! :smile:

I would try it if you are buying from someplace you can return it if you don't like it! And who knows, you may love it.

I know for certain that the Mid Day was still available for the spring in giant silver and rose gold or giant covered hardware. I think lots of stores just don't order them because they aren't a basic, popular style. Don't know if your SA is correct or not, but she certainly could be, since the bag still exists.

:flowers: Thank you for all your responses so far! I am definitely leaning towards getting the bag! I do appreciate everyone's thoughts and insight as it makes me feel more confident in my decision. Please keep em coming as I have to make my decision by tomorrow! ...And in the meantime, here's a photo of the bag to help!

Go for it! I think the GH looks great in the bigger bags, especially the day and midday. It overwhelms me too in the city, although other people's pictures I love! But in the Day (so I am sure also the midday), I felt it looked great.

This is beautiful! And I agree with you, never really thought about this style until I saw Tokyo's Amethyst Midday. She wears every Bbag so well and this was no exception! And it's great to have something different too, not only Cities and PTs. I got a Pom not long ago and do not regret trying a new style;)

And, I say it again: Tempete/GSH :rochard::ps:

P&P...so true!! Tokyo's collection is amazing and her style compliment her bags so well!! Your Pom is absolutely stunning too! That's another style I LOVE on others, but am not so sure about for myself... I totally agree with you on the Tempete/GSH!! :nuts:

That is really beautiful! It looks like the photo was taken in Bal Las Vegas or in a boutique where the lighting is poor. My Tempete looked exactly that color in the photos from Vegas but IRL it was darker and more tealish. I was disappointed at first because I adored the color in the photos from the boutique and disliked it IRL. Now Tempete has grown on me enough to use it more and more.
