... I've got a beautiful bbag to show all of you!

Introducing the newest member of my Balenciaga family: 2007 Violet City!

The color is so much richer and vibrant in person. My phone camera does not do it justice.







This city's looks like it's hardly been used! Pristine corners, no signs of wear or discoloration on the handles, and the clear plastic covering is still intact on the serial plate, as well as the tag from Barney's.





The only real signs of wear are some slight splitting of the tassels. Luckily, the bag came with extra tassels! :cool:

Mod shot- sorry about the crummy lighting! I took this picture not too long ago in the evening.





I leave you with a quote about violets!

-Again the violet of our early days
Drinks beauteous azure from the golden sun,
And kindles into fragrance at his blaze.-
- Ebenezer Elliott ("The Corn Law Rhymer"),

What a gorgeous color! The bag looks so new, I feel like I have stepped into a Balenciaga time machine and dialed 2007!

Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

Since this bag is 7 years old and has no signs of fading, I bought it because I figured this was one of the violet bags that resisted what others have succumbed to over the years. I will treat this lovely purple-hued beauty with much care to hopefully prevent any future fading!
