I have always wanted a Galleria but was afraid to buy one because even the PM size which is the smallest size looks HUGE on the mannequin on Joy's site.
But one of my readers, Ayumi (aka Melons), who is also a forum member was getting rid of her Galleria PM in the Azur print and she offered it up for a steal! I can never resist a bargain lol so I snatched it from her - it's on it's way to me now :) and should be here either today or tomorrow but here are some pics she took herself.
This is a pre-owned, gently used bag with a light patina. She did mention there were some water spots which will fade when the patina sets in. I think she added a coat of Olive Oil to get the light patina. I prefer the light vachetta especially on the Azur print but I'm ok with a light to medium patina. I just don't like the dark patina and if I keep a bag long enough for it to get dark I will just buy another one. Isn't it great how we can switch so many styles and just get rid of ones that don't work to get another without breaking your bank? I think so :).
So I will take more detailed pics and a video review after I receive it just because I like to show you all a little more detailed pictures with lots of close up but it looks like a great bag.
She also showed me some mod shots of herself wearing it. She's 5', 2" and 118 lbs. So she's about a half inch taller and 20 lbs. heavier than I am but the bag looks good on her. It still looks big on her but not overwhelming. So because she's a little bigger than I am, I know this bag is going to look even bigger on me but hopefully I can make it work. I really want it to work :).
