If you’re a good friend of mine in real life, you’ll know that I have….. ermm…. a slight ‘obsession’ with my Balenciaga
ANYWAY! I finally decided to get ANOTHER Balenciaga bag. WHY, you ask? Considering I had around 8 other Balenciaga bags that I never used? Well, this one is different…. because I adore the style and the leather is ultra, ultra soft.
It’s the Balenciaga “Arena Saddle” satchel bag!!
It’s made of buttery soft lambskin, and comes in a very wearable brick-red. It’s somewhere in-between the First and the City bags, and fits in all the stuff that I need. I love love love the way it slouches and I keep hugging it because it’s so smooshy and smells so good 😛 I think it suits my height and size (big bags tend to dwarf me) and it’s really light when empty, so it doesn’t hurt my shoulder when I carry lots of stuff.
And the fabulous part? There’s not one indication it’s Balenciaga. Only if you open the bag, you’ll see the Balenciaga leather tab. But from the outside, there’s no Balenciaga word at all…. so only true Balenciaga fans (which there are hardly any of in Shanghai) will know what it is. To the regular person, it just looks like a regular leather bag. Nice and subtle. Awesome!
