    Default What do you think of these colors?!?

    I'm craving one of these bags for the summer ! Which color do you like better of the two? The pink is great but there's just something about the magenta that I like...

    I like the magenta 08 better,but try to find one rich in color and not dried out.

    I really really like both but that magenta stands out more for me!

    I don't own any Balenciagas, and I'm thinking about making one of these my first purchase. So you mean to say that some are dried out more so than others? Like they are all unique?

    So do you girls think that these colors are too trendy? Should I settle for a more neutral/classic color for my first purchase? I just want to make sure I get the most out of my $ because I can't really afford to purchase something that I won't be able to use soon after. But I REALLY love these colors!!!!

    I really do like these colors a lot but I say if its your first Balenciaga purchase I would opt for a more classic color....just my opinion though...you should get whichever color makes you happy!

    well, I'm not an expert but I do own 6 Balenciaga big bags,2 small bags, and 2 accessories.

    For example - When I see 3 Balbags of the same color & style at my Nieman Marcus store,they are all different. Not a huge difference but I'll pick the one that most appealing to me. If I buy the Bbag from Balenciaga New York,I'll have them send me pictures of 3 different bags & I'll pick the one I like. Anal,huh? ((LOL))

    I have seen Magenta 08's dried and veiny ,and some lustrous! Are you buying this bag in person or online?

    Well, I wanted to purchase it from rafaello-network.com. I'm pretty sure their items are authentic. I actually posted another thread asking if this site is legit or not and am waiting for confirmation of that. But anyways, you have the Balenciaga NY store send you pics through email or something? I'm curious about exactly how that works. Also, what is the retail price for the city in either of these colors? Do you know? Rafaello-network was asking around $1500 or so. Have you seen the bubblegum pink in person too?!? And how do you like owning pieces from Balenciaga??? Ok, last question, lol...And do you think it would be ok to purchase one of these colors as my first bag from them? THANKS!

    Well, the BG Pink has the best leather out of the 2 but I like the Magenta color better. There are some pretty Magenta's that don't have veiny dry leather but they seem to be far and few between.



    live-love-luxurize, BalNY will send you pics if you ask. That's your best bet so you can see what you will actually get. The City retails for $1195. You will LOVE Balenciaga after you get your first one...it's light weight and the leather...OH THE LEATHER! They have a great variety of colors every season, too! Good Luck with your first purchase! Make sure and post pics when you decide to get one!

    It's only $1195 for this color?!?!? I checked out diabro and rafaello-network and they were asking around $1500! So that means after taxes it would be under $1300? Maybe I should just take a trip to NY since I'm so close. I've been meaning to take a trip there soon anyway. I wonder why there is a difference in leather quality between the magenta and pink???

    Yeah, sometimes on online site the prices vary a lot. I say since you are pretty close to NY it's worth the trip. The leather varies on every bag not just these 2 colors. Sometimes you will find that the same color has some bags that are smooth, some that are wrinkly (my favorite) and some that are dry and veiny looking. That's why it is safest to buy either in person or get pics of the exact bag you will be getting first.

    ^^^ Qualitycouture, do you know if the boutique always has the newest colors in stock? Also, do you know what other colors are out?!?!
    And thank you for the advice on how to pick a Bbag!

    Are you talking about BalNY? If so, they normally have a GREAT selection. You might waant to call them first though. I think there is a thread here of all the places that carry Bbags and their phone numbers. Also, usually Saks and Neiman Marcus carry them so if that is closer to you you might want to check them out as well. There is also a thread here of all the S/S '08 colors coming out...Magenta, BG Pink, Yellow, Turq., Sky Blue, Sahara, Electric Blue, Vert Thyme and a few more I don't know off the topof my head. But there is pics of each colors. Hope this helps!

    I prefer the Magenta color, although I went with the Petal Pink City myself. The reason why was that alot of the 08 Magenta's have really dry and veiny leather. As I couldn't pick the bag in person I thought it was a safer option for me.
    Some people work to live, others live to work. I work to expand my handbag collection!

    Yes, I have Balenciaga New York email me picture's of 3 different bags of the same -style and color. Plus my Sales associate "KIM" is awesome with me & knows I'm picky.
    I'll trust her to send me the best bag! I can tell Kim.......I want this bag to be less veiny and dry. Please find me one that rich in color

    -I want to say I pay around $1200.00 for a city.

    -I'm a little skeptical about buying from Rafaello-network,but I have some awesome
    feedback from others.

    -I enjoy my balenciaga bags Big time!

    -I think it would be awesome to buy one of these colors as your first bbag. My first bbag was Rouille 07 & I didn't care if it match my attire.
