Does anyone think that getting the Work in Ink would be too much of a good thing, or colour in this instance?

LouiseyPeasey....I just saw the update to your site and W.O.W! Truly amazing. You ladies here are a huge help to us first time buyers.

And I can see the addiction. I got my first one (rouge city from leshent) and I loooove it. Another one is not too far on the horizon. I tried to upload a pic but my file size is too big and I can't figure out how to make it smaller

Anyhow.....a big thank you to you ladies who post such amazing info here.

chiangsi, I'm planning on getting the work in ink and emerald in weekender. Since it looks like the supply will exceed the demand, I'm going to wait and get them in leather closest to the older leather (if possible).

surfer got a work, hers is beautiful though. As always, it depends on the bag itself. Im just talking about balenciagas leather quality in general, if they still have these lower quality leathers thats annoying thats all.

I didn't think posting about authentication would annoy anyone. I actually thought this afternoon was so much fun, especially since a couple of us ended up with bags. Sorry if I bothered anyone.
Cheers, Carolyn

Dara, I guess I see your point about the authentication stuff in here, but personally...I kind of like having it all in one place. I hardly ever check the authentication thread anymore. It's got too many boring non-B bags in it...

I could be wrong, but my first impression when I looked at that post was *ewww!!!* Such a bad replica. For starters, the leather looks like plastic-coated cardboard. Not so on my own bag. But of course, they could just be really bad photos.

The ink is beautiful. Purple/blue/black, like everyone says. It'd be beautiful in a smaller size, I'm sure.
Hi Kini. Thanks for the reassurance. I actually think the Ink City is real. I did a closer inspection of the bag after doubts were expressed, and I think the bag actually belongs to a TFSer. I won't name names. Let's just say we've all been anticipating the bag's arrival. My guess is that she was disappointed when it arrived, so she listed it right away to maximize her advantage of being the first Ink on ebay, no matter what the leather quality might be like. Smart move, in my mind.

Agreed, smart move! Indead it is real, just yucky leather.

But I know all of them from reading this thread...that's why I plan to get the work to keep all secrets in.

glad to hear i'm not the only one. i've only been married for two months, but i just realized that i probably should've bought a bbag before we joined all of our accounts. but i do have a couple of credit cards that my husband never sees the bills for. my only conundrum now with the upcoming purchase is do i a) pay with one of my personal credit cards and lie about how much it cost or pretend that it's an old bag or b) pay with one of our joint cards, which means he'll see the $1000+ charge and flip out but at least he'll be happy we got the miles. nothing pleases my husband more than american express membership rewards points .

You dont have to apologize, it wasnt like that. There are just other threads for that purpose and you can always PM a person, if you value thier opinion on the matter, like LP or someone!

i left work, went shopping, went out to dinner, came home and there were FIVE new pages of this thread! i'm going to have to quit my job just to stay on top of it all!!

sometime before those five new pages were added, a bunch of us were discussing whether the ink had arrived at aloharag. when i emailed to ask when they would be coming in, i unfortunately received the following stock answer:

From the sounds of it, the ink is going to be very popular. Maybe once I pay off my city I'll get me one.
Cheers, Carolyn
