Balenciaga, Shopping, Uncategorized BALENCIAGA SEAFOAM WITH CHARMS 26 November 2006




Q: What’s nicer than a Balenciaga bag?
A: A Balenciaga bag with charms!

The problem is, I’m not very creative with making my own charms. Then I realised that I can just pop on an earring – they just hook onto the zipper’s o-ring and voila! Cute charm all set. Plus, it can be really easily interchanged with other earrings.

I’m off to accessorise the rest of ’em now 😉

    Haha, you are so funny. Wow, I can’t believe that Balenciaga handbag looks so new, the leather is not worn.

      Aww I’m glad you said that as I was unhappy when it first arrived as it wasn’t mint (as described) so I had to clean it up, but it looks almost new now 🙂

      I’m happy it matches well with the bag! Now my earrings have dual use, hehe

      I can’t decide what looks good on my Pewter City! I’m thinking a big plastic rainbow heart.. but urk, I don’t know. Do take pics of yours when you decide, I’d love to see what you come up with 🙂

        I have the perfect TYPE of earring. The dangly type that won’t scuff the bag but the earring doesn’t go well with the pewter color. It’s peachy pink and purple. =(

        Nothing I have seems to go with the pewter!!!

    bev,coz it’s e/r hook, you might drop them or scuff the leather part you hang on. get bag lobster clasp & that should work better, safer too. 🙂

      I’ve got this little tiny stopper thing that goes on the very end of the hook that I’ve been using so it can’t scratch the leather. Is that enough? I’m going to try to look for the lobster clasp ones though, n ext time I get earrings!

    Not sure if I’ve said this before but I really like the colour of this Balenciaga bag!

      I like it too but I think I like the size more than the colour! I prefer more vibrant colours so still not 100% convinced I’ll keep it yet

    looks great!! remember not to tug on the charm to open up the zipper pocket. don’t wanna break the clasp~

    that color is just so gorgeous. and rare. i’ve seen a lot of pewter, noir, and sky blue but never that color until now.

    have u seen the striped ones?? cute!

      Ya I’m careful to hold on to the o-ring when I open the zipper.

      Seafoam is the rarest and most coveted colour out of all the B bags, hence why it took me *ages* to get my hands on it!
