a very bad, but very happy girl! I only had time to take photos of tassels and mirrors before the sun set, but of course I will be back with lots more. I will start with my thoughts on the Violet City. Even though in my photos of the Eggplant tassel with the Violet tassels the colors look very similar, in real life the Violet is definitely brighter than Eggplant. It is a real chameleon in different lighting, but the purple is a more vibrant hue than Eggplant. The tassels are super thin, but don't necessarily look fragile. As long as they hold up, and don't split or break, I can live with them being thin. The leather is definitely more distressed than the 04 and 05 bags, but not overly so, and not nearly as veiny as the 06 bags. The leather is also nice and thick, and I can totally tell it will only get better with use! I fell into an amazing deal on a mint Bubblegum Work yesterday, and I am still in shock over what I paid for it. The Work is a tad too big for my needs, but I could not pass the deal up, and I am sure I will find use for it! I also just purchased a BG Pink Planet (my first Planet ever), and a BG Pink Coin Purse (my first Coin Purse ever), both on eBay and both from two lovely pf-ers! It never fails that the best bags I find for sale on eBay are always owned by pf members! Here's a few pics for now.... There are 7 tassels above and the one right in the middle is Eggplant. These are all my Violet tassels, and it was super nice having the extra tassels come out of their package not overly bent. With all my 04 and 05 bags it was a real hassle getting the kinks out of tassels that had been wrapped up for so long! And all my mirrors. I promise to be back with photos of my new bags, and new family photos too!
