I'm thinking of getting the Velo in Seafoam. Does anyone have a Velo? Is it large enough to carry all your daily stuff?

even though i love the colour purple - I have to side with seafoam. I saw it at the Nordstroms in Seattle and it! I had a vert d'eau too and it adds a good pop of colour to any outfit all year long!

I like the rose gold hardware on black better than the silver

Love the Lariat. One of my all time favourite bag designs. Why change a complete classic! I LOVE the shape

I hear that the rose gold hardware is a bit distressed looking compared to the classic silver or gold hardware-so if you like your hardware to have that shiny and new look, then rose gold may not be for you.

Just scored a Cognac Oval clutch and waiting for it to arrive; I'm hoping that it lives up to my 4 year long obsession. Does anyone have any experience with one? Did/do you love it and use it?

I have two. One in ink, and one in black. I love both to death. They're gorgeous.

Can someone give me some advice on how to moisturize my bag. The leather looks dried out after using it for just 2 weeks. :/

^ Balenciaga has created a Nourishing Cream that you can purchase for $15 from the boutiques. You will need to use another lint-free cloth to apply the cream thinly and then let it dry before buffing to a shine with the soft cloth included with the cream. There are instructions on the bottom of the can. I really am pleased with this stuff. It's not the easiest to use b/c it's thick and once it starts to dry it becomes sticky which can pick up lint, hair, dust, etc. so careful application is essential, but it seems to be a layer of shiny gloss that makes imperfections and color softening less noticeable.

For an easy to apply leather conditioner, I really like Apple Care which when used as directed seems to moisturize the leather without changing anything else about it. I don't like those scented products or those that change the look and/or feel of the leather, so it's important to test every product first in a place you won't see.

My 2011 bag is very dry and I've applied Apple Care Conditioner on the body and Balenciaga's Nourishing Cream on the corners and side trim. I am pleased with the results (less color loss and less white-vein distressing) and plan to re-apply before putting the bag back into the dust bag when I switch bags later.
