Added others to the sorbet list.. katinboots get a sorbet! it's gorrrrgeous, IMO the best pink bal has ever made.. no offense to amethyst lovers, because i like amethyst too but sorbet is my favorite kind of pink (as you can tell from my username i love pink haha)

bagalicious I don't think there is an age limit for pink! Honestly vibrant pinks are hard to pull off no matter how old you are and you pull off amethyst beautifully. I think you could pull off a sorbet GSH day, RH city, or RH day for sure. Btw LOVE the hair extensions on you.

Marbled looking leather
Hey ladies,

My Raisin GSH from T&D still has that really marbled look. I used the LMB conditioner which worked wonders on the smell and definitely softened it up a bit but didn't do much for the color. Any tips?

Sorry the pic isn't better, the lighting in my office is a bit gloomy.

for you, can i dye a pinkish bag to dark brown or bordeaux?
TIA
Candy,
I can't remember the tarrago link, but you def. want to use a penetrating dye, like Fiebings, first. Two or three coats. Then the self-shine dye (1 coat) by Tarrago.

Now, as for the color, if you search in thread #6, I posted pics of my DIY dye project where I dyed an NBF aqua to black. It's been weeks and I've used her every day, with no color fading. It's really important to let the bag dry for 24-48 hours between coats.

And yes, you'll be totally fine dyeing a pinkish bag to a darker color.

My bag ("Joan Jett") underwent three coats of Fiebings and one of Tarrago and was kinda stiff the first week. She's really smooshy now.

I was also amazed that I didn't have to re-wax the edges. The dye penetrated the rubber edging finish with no problem. No peeling, etc.

Good luck! Can't wait to see pics!

Ladies...Honest opinion...At what age do you think light pink should stopped being carried?
I have always felt that a light pink on me would like RIDICULOUS as i am the grandmother on this thread...I love sorbet to look at and on others, But i think it's best carried on women under 35...Just my opinion...what do you all think?
When I carry my amethyst (which is rarely) I feel like I'm trying to hard. Unless i wear it with jeans, and no make up.[/quote]

Baga, Listen. I'm 45. And as long as you don't go all Ellie Mae Clampett, it's all in your attitude. My Mom is 84 and carries ame/purple/pink, with a neutral outfit, it looks awesome.

Hugs,
Shelley

sanitizedfashion: Any news on your latest Catty chanel order? Can't wait to hear your review!
Sucre03: It's a tad late but Karma for all your perseverance changing the o'rings. I took my bbag to my cobbler, closed my eyes and handed it over. The guy was holding an exacto knife and I just couldn't look. I'll need a few more bags in my collection before I'll do DIY projects!
MissDaisyChain: I'm really drawn to the Spring/Summer peach LV bags too! But there hasn't been enough chatter on the thread to assure me that the reps are "spot on". For some reason I think patina helps "camouflage" a rep bag-- without patina I'm worried a new season rep bag will just scream fake! KWIM??

....looking good Ms. Ellie Mae... tweet twoo

Crystal: Your Pommier City looks great. I have an Authentic Pommier that I never carry. Maybe it is because I should have purchased it with regular hardware. I am anxiously awaiting my Authentic Bal Light Olive Day bag which I am sure I will carry alot. Your magenta looks great as well. Congrats!

I am anxiously awaiting for Jacky to get the Oversized Alexa in Ink. Maybe next week I can finally order it.

Thank-you Coco and the only thing that I did think of when I opened the box was maybe I should have got it with GSH but I am happy with this combo as the bag is bright enough oh well a reason to order more bags but in a different color of course I think the next one will be black PT GGH oh my goodness GGH can't believe what l'm saying but I think if the rest of my ensemble is neutral I may be able to pull GGH off but that won't be for a little while yet ....

Coco I didn't see the ink up on his site did he e-mail you that?
/\ that pommier CP is sooo cute, I think l'll go to the shops in the next while and compare my pommier to the auth

coco- do you know if J will be making the medium PS1 in a ink? What colors was the med PS1 going to be made in I think black, taupe maybe? oh yeah and yellow. How long do you think the boys will keep your velo for? I hope you get it back as soon as possible, but that was so kind of you to offer to send your bag to them
