anyway..if anyone really knows me, they know I LOVE TO COOK! I am obsessed with cooking and food network..I could watch my favorite shows all day long..and Giada Delaurentiis is my absolute favorite! And when I heard she was preggo I was so happy for her! I saw this cute little clip from MSNBC on her making food that kids could do and then her little baby Jade made an appearance..She is so cute! Anyway, in case any of you missed it, here it is:

Balenciaga 2007 S/S Black Courier

Balenciaga Courier Bag. 2007 S/S Black color. Retail is about $1275..These are sold out in stores and pretty hard to find these days. I know Im going to regret this because this but I have to take care of a few things and have to just sell my bags..

Condition: I got this brand new with tags a while ago and used it about a month straight and then put her back in the dustbag to give her a break..and i used her about a week this past week and then put her away and am now using my city bag. She is still in really good condition and has broken in so very nicely! she is soft and squishy..her leather is thin but not so thin it feels like it will break. Just thinner than my other 2 black couriers I've owned..but she is DEFINITELY more black than any of my 06 or 08 black couriers I owned..that is why i kept this one of the 3..the leather varies n the entire bag..each panel is different like the top of it has more disteressing that the bottom..the little piece that holds the strap has a little fray threads as pictured in the pic with the rivet..but can be cut off.
the bottom / base piece of the bag is slightly lighter/grayblack then the rest of the bag..i think it's cause its the stiffer part of the bag which is the base..it has always been that way when i got her..but it's not a huge difference..she has 2 scratches on the front body there is a picture of both one on the body and one on the little smily piece with the 2 studs by the pocket..and then there are a few scratchs on the bottom but you can barely see them and when worn you wont see..there are a few scratches on the strap as pictured..she stil has a nice leather smell..she really is gorgeous and the perfect bag for someone!

What is comes with: Dustbag, mirror, cards.

Balenciaga 2005 Turquoise Coin Purse

Condition: I got this cute little coin purse a few weeks ago and love her so much but I have to sell most of my collection now so she has to go..this is hard for me because I really love this little thing...but I can't keep her. I only had her holding my camera in my bag since I got her. She is in used condition but still beautiful. She has a little scuffs on the corners but not bad. And she has been used quite a bit by the previous owner but still in good condition with vibrant color! she has a little scuff on the buckes which I tried to take pics of as well. And she has a water spot on the back.

What is comes with: This coin purse comes with dustbag and cards

Balenciaga 2008 Ruby/Rubisse Makeup Pochette

Condition: Brand new with tags. It is gorgeous and evenly distressed. It is matte like most ruby's are but she is super gorgeous and has beautiful thick and chewy leather and i think will break in nicely. I wanted this so bad but when I got home and tried to put the things I wanted to use it for in it, it wasn't big enough..so I have to sell her...Im really sad. If I had the funds I would keep her but I don't...so she has to go

What is comes with: This bag comes with dustbag and cards only

Pictures: This color is really hard to capture and is very saturated and very red..it is definitely right between rouge vif and rouge theather.

2006 Balenciaga Rouge Vif Red City Handbag

Balenciaga City Handbag. 2006 Rouge Vif color. These are sold out in stores and pretty hard to find these days. I know Im going to regret this because this is one on my Holy Grails but I cannot afford to keep bags I will not use and especially this one because I would need to get her fixed somewhere.

Condition: I got this and paid a lot of money but it came with the little piece that holds the ring coming apart but only on the top half of one side..the other side is completely secured and sewn on and will not come off so I believe it wo't come apart at all (it's really not as bad as I make it sound but I wanted to note it..I don't think it will come off but I ALWAYs use the strap and carry a lot of stuff so I would rather have it fixed) and I don't really know where to take it I think you can take it to a shoe repair place but I am super lazy and picky at the same time so I don't want to go and find soemwhere to get it fixed..It was not known when I got her that she had this flaw..it is very minor but it bothers me so she has to go...she's in REALLY GOOD CONDITION! The pervious owner took care of her and hardly used her..she is very soft and squishy. The pervious owner also moisturized the bag when she got it but there is NO smell at all. There is minor wear on the corners..it's not so much wear as just a little darkened, the handles have SLIGHT warming but barely at all, and the handles at the base also have dark marks from it resting on the hardware (all pictured), the bottom has a few lihght scratch/marks i pictured those as well and the back may have a SLIGHT darkening at the bottom from jeans transfer? this is how she came to me she is absolutely gorgeous and it pains me to let this one go but I am so picky I can't keep her. Other than that the bag is the most softest and saturated 06 vif city I have had and this one is my 3rd one. I tried to take as many pictures as I could of the things mentioned above.

What is comes with: Dustbag, mirror, extra tassels, cards.
