    The problem with getting a pre-loved bag, is that I have to take what I can get. Whatever is available online is what I have to work with, but I definitely want a gray bag.
    I would go through Ebay for a Bal bag, but stick with sellers that are known to be good sellers. I've got a list if you want them.

    Also, I would purchase a Day or City. They are the perfect size, in my opinion and fit comfortably under your arm.

    I see what you're saying about the gray... which is why I hope I would be able to find a not-so-used one

    I do like the Twiggy in Anthracite though:

    It's a great dark gray color, but like you guys said, I think it would be too small.

    you can always call the bal store, they should have the previous year color in stock, the price on ebay is insane!!!!

    last time when i got my ruby red, they showed me the blue color from 2006... so, give the store a try...

    city is a bit square compare to part time
    since you're skinny, the city should fits on your shoulder well

    I have a gal who I get Bal bags from at a discount. I just ordered several bags for Spring through her and have ordered all of my stuff from her in the past. I think she has a Anthra City still available. Email me and I'll forward you her email address.

    Maevey, can you please post the names of the reputable Bal sellers here, as I would be interested to know who to buy off as well.

    I'm loving all of those gray Bal bags Alex!!!! They are just gorgeous, I like the City Arianne posted, but that Twiggy is lovely too! (I've been eyeing cognac Firsts on eBay for a while now!)

    I the Argent but I would worry how the color will hold up. I have heard that the dye in light colored Bals is not as saturated as previous years and the leather starts to yellow and the handles turn rather dark. Have you considered Anthracite?

    Yeah, I would worry about the light colour too actually. Anthracite is gorgeous. What about Plomb? I love the Plomb GSH combination.

    For me, really any color gray is fine. Since I'm not so familiar with Balenciaga's color choices, I'm not interested in one particular one. I just want something that will go with everything, and any variation of gray I would like :)

    I think I'm getting obsessed with this Bal gray bag search now, haha
