Wish You Were Here...


Okay fine, I'm not really in Papeete, French Polynesia right now BUT I do have Papeete in my closet :)


My Bal Twiggy in the new pre-S/S 2010 Papeete has kept me company this entire weekend. I've been on this weird sea foam green phase lately and out of all the new Bal colors, Papeete was of course, my first choice. I would say this is more of a electric sea foam (you know...like electric blue...) that some might even call turquoise but whatever the case, I love the pop in color. The leather this season is smoother than the F/W 2009 season. Less veiny, richer, and has almost a sheen to it. Luxurious Papeete butter. Happy to report that my Bal/sea foam green fix is now satisfied :)

i've been reading your blog for a while now but this is my first time to comment... because oh my gosh i love your Balenciaga! i just got my first Balenciaga recently but it's in a plain black so i can use it for job interviews and stuff... but the green you got is really nice. Never saw this color before! is it a new color?

Hi R! Yay on your first comment :) Very smart choice about going with black for interviews - I need to do the same cus my collection is getting a wee bit too colorful. Anyhow, yes this is the new Papeete that is just starting to arrive in stores. I would recommend taking a peek at the Bal forum on TPF...they have samples of all the new colors for this season on their reference thread.

OMG! Papeete is GORGEOUS! Yeah all the leather this season looks scrumptious. E says the black is really nice, darkly saturated and SMOOTH so looking forward to my drum!!! Saw a preview of the drum and it's sooo cute! Just a truncated twiggy really.

Your Twiggy is beyond gorgeous. I thought my Sky Blue City was divine, but this bag beats it hands down. Enjoy her in good health.

Very nice blog. Keep it up:-)
