on their ebay auction, it says
something like they have "170" of the guides available. that's misleading since they're not sending you an actual guide. it's a link to their website. i HATE everything that is misleading. i don't care if they are reputable sellers or not.
that wording is just misleading--i really thought i was going to get a nice, portable guide that i can carry it with me.... by mail. anyways, i read their website once, and i thought "it's pretty much everything i've read in the "old" balenciaga thread except it's all summed up neatly.
also, you're supposed to get rights to their forum, but i've been waiting for almost a month now for them to authroize my registration. still waiting....
i've written them several times, but still not authorized. it's frustrating cuz i've been waiting and waiting....

bottom line, i think it's a waste of money.

Firstly I don't think it's a waste of money especially for the person that is shopping online on ebay and has no idea about stuff like this thread on fashion forums etc. Secondly if you get everything you want here in this forum, why do you want to enter the Authentic Balenciaga forum for???

I think she would have handled it in a more civil manner if Angel didn't take off with everyone's photos from the board and made them public when they were for private use and viewing by the private forum members only. I think anyone that had anything private and had it publicised by anyone particularly by a trusted member of that board would have acted in the same manner.

It was the first guide that explained ... the very fact of super sellers selling fake bags. I don't know if you remember that on the first balenciaga thread Balenciaga Queen was the first person to write about real balenciaga and all the importan imformation that you are all aware now.. She of course got the information from Dude herself and from the guide.. so Yes, I suggest you read upon on the guide if you aren't sure.
Yes everything I learnt about Balenciaga was from Dude. She was the first person that I had ever bought a Balenciaga bag from and have been in love with the bags ever since and I have learnt so much from her and continue to do so in her private board. She is far from rude. She is only rude if you betray her trust or you are a fake seller which is fair enough. I think I would be the same.

Oh plus the lightening bolt style lampo stamp on the zipper is key. I wouldn't bother messing with someone who isn't a known authentic seller that doesn't have a receipt.

The lightning bolt style lampo is not the key. There are other factors. 2 members here bought their bags from Barneys NY and Harvey Nichols not long ago and they didn't have lampo zippers.

Hello.. could you please help me to find a site where I can see all the AUTHENTIC colors of the Balenciaga handbag? I've one in black and another one in white, and I'm going to buy a new one, but here in Italy it's very hard to find, so maybe I'd need to order one from a site... suggest a site with authentic Balenciaga... (sorry for my english!).

Thanks, Twilo!! I will definitely keep the taupe twiggy because I think the taupe color looks more and more gorgeous (and same as the teal) !! I just feel that the classique (and the city classique, I haven't got this one) should be more functional. Actually, I already bought 2 Balenciaga bags in 6 weeks and I'm really happy with them....so I will have to stay calm for a while until I will be able to get a new one. Anyway, my next baby will be either the classique or city classique. I will just wait and see which color I will have, RED should be REALLY NICE and I hope Balenciaga will come up with a nice shade of red for fall 2005!!

That happens to me sometimes too..... I'm not so sure about the new turqoise, but the teal is just right for most colors (mix / match)...

I hope you will enjoy your taupe medium classique (as much as I am enjoying my taupe twiggy). My friend got one and I think it's just gorgeous !

not really..you may not advertise any sales here and links to e-bay are generally not permitted...
posting a pic to ask if something is authentic might be the only exception...but without the link...

thanks to everyone for complying ...

I'll post pics when it gets here.

Congratulation, dear!!

I have seen the classique in dolma green and I think it's also cool and considered a neutral color. Unless you hate green or really want a bright color, I think you will find it nice. Why don't you ask the NYC store to e-mail you the pic?
