I've owned mine for all of maybe 72 hours and love her. I have the pomme. She holds quite a bit , the strap is perfect, can use her hand held as well. She gets a lot of compliments,
The Perle is beautiful but would be prone to color transfer...I'd be exp. worried since the bottom has no vachetta/feet so that bag would sit directly on whatever surface you place her on. My SA disouraged me against anything perle. She had a perle key holder and it turned yellow.
As for the bag, she's hot, sexy, hip, and eye catcher. You'll love her!!!
I only know about vernis and color transfer/discoloration I don't own anything in Epi so can't help you there.
BTW, I also wear a lot of jeans and black and that's what I am wearing my Pomme Roxbury with. I notice you have some Pomme in your pix...are you considering the Pomme? She's HOT! Here's a pic to help you!
i have pomme FW, cles, (and a heart on the way!!) .. I also have a rouge vif balenciaga work .. i dont think I need two red BAGS .. I wanted something to hang my heart on that would look great for evenings out .. the perle looked amazing with the heart in a photo a pfer posted and I fell in love!! .. I will have to think about it ... would an ivorie soufflot be a better chance since i really need a white-ish bag? .. oh and how long does it take for the vernis to yellow??? a year? more?? less? would the pomme heart hanging from it (or pomme FW inside it) cause color transfer?
Hate to say it, but I would stay away from Perle in general if you're planning on using it often... want to wear it with jeans.. etc., etc. Have you considered the beige color, Noisette? I don't know anything about EPI, sorry : (
agree with RG about not being able to compare the two. The Roxbury's shape is just amazing.. the drop length on the strap combined with the thinness of the strap is absolute perfection.. it creates a really sleek profile on the bag. seriously, can you tell i love it?
thanks everyone .. i am still torn between perle and noisette ... how would noisette look with the pomme heart hanging from it? .. i really need a white evening bag .. the roxy is the most amazing shape!!
This afternoon i'll go to LV to buy my Roxbury in Noisette! Can't wait! I think, the Noisette goes with every colour. I like the Perle too, but i'm afraid for colour transfer, so i'll take the Noisette...
