@Lucy : I'm with you. Playing it by ear. I was ready to fork over for this bag IMMEDIATELY and now... not so much. I'm gonna hold off until I KNOW it's fixed.

Amethyst_Sparkle: They told me SPECIFICALLY that it was 2005 Bubblegum. They'd sent the 2005 silhouette to the factory. *shrug* This is my HG bag, so if it's not right, I'm going to have to pass, which makes me sad. While I don't typically USE my mirror, I still like it to be right. Especially since they did so well with the Turq 05 specs.

I'm thinking of ordering PS1 from J, but a bit hesitant to spend so much money on a bag that MIGHT fall apart in a months time.
The handle of my AW Rocco from J also ripped. It's more on the side where it connects to the bag so I'm planning on fixing it myself, but a stud falling? That freaks me out. I've tried contacting him with no luck in the past few months, but maybe you'll have better luck with replacing that stud?

Ok so I got a Bal like bag from ShopLush. The leather is stiff, not at all like T&D's, wonder if I can send it back?

Agree.

i'd take it the rocco to a cobbler that can fix it for 10 bucks or less. he might be able to shore up the bag in other areas. the authentics had quality problems as well.

and ask J or catty for extra studs when you make your next order with him/her.

Oh no, Russler1. I feel like I had a hand in that because I had a good experience. Mine is so soft and "chewy" as the girls say. I guess that I had ordered so long ago that maybe they have changed their leather. So sorry you don't like it. Try returning it, if not I hope a leather conditioner will help?

you're gonna pass on your holy grail bag because the mirror doesn't have a back pocket?

2005 was almost seven years ago. For those to whom small details matter, it's a bit of a stretch trying to pass off brand new agneau bags as seven year old chevre with totally different looking, brand new, non-oxidized brass hardware, isn't it? T&D updated their RH last winter to correspond with Bal's RH change, so while it's spot on for recent seasons, the hardware will be off for old colors like this. As was the case with the most recent batch of Turquoise. Spot on color, but new hardware. And no, the new hardware doesn't oxidize. At least not so far, which has been eight months, as Moutarde and Bois de Rose were the first to get the hw update. Now I personally don't give a rats *** about these kinds of monotonous details because at the end of the day they're just bags, but if things like mirror pockets (or lack thereof) bother you, I'm betting incorrect hardware will too.

Are '05 and 08 bubblegum really that dissimilar? I say if the color looks good, don't sweat the small stuff. nobody's walking around checking people's mirrors for pockets or doing color/year checks (and if they are, they've got major issues ).

@Amethyst_Sparkle... you know what? Strangely, the hardware issue doesn't bother me as much as the pocket! LMAO!!!! Weird. I know. And honestly, Bubblegum TRULY is in the top 3 of my 6 HGs... I guess I should just roll with it, eh? I'd hate to miss out on this color over something silly...

the photos I've seen make them very similar.

Papyrus vs Galet

I've seen Kim Kardashian carrying a nude bag, it looks like it's the Sahara.

that vein-y galet is dreamy.

05 was when i was a bal nut and i remember bubblegum being brighter than the one t&d are doing now, at least according to images. it wasn't as pop pink as sorbet, but it wasn't as pale as the bubblegum they're showing on ioffer now. this is just my memory, of course. obv GH did not exist then, so when they said it was "bubblegum" i just figured they were calling it that they way they were calling the pale sage "cypress."

Thank you so much, Blodeuwedd, for that comparison pic! The RGGH looks divine on that bag.

I'm looking or a more nudish bag color than Sahara... maybe something with more beigy undertones...
