I may love my handbags.. but nothing beats my Balenciagas. They still come out tops for me, as the perfect daily bag. On the downside, they’ve become really popular in recent years.. especially here in Singapore. Pretty much every second girl carries one! I much preferred it years and years ago when it was pretty much unknown :P
But anyway, I managed to locate a brand new Balenciaga city in ‘blue india’, a colour I’ve been coveting for awhile. It’s a muted soft turquoise, in chevre (goat) leather that’s oh-so-luscious!! It smells delicious, and is ultra smooshy and slouchy – exactly the reason why I love Balenciaga bags so much.
I love the size of the City bag, and the regular pewter hardware (the giant hardware versions all look so fake-bag to me!). The soft tassels give me infinite pleasure because fiddly-fingers me can fiddle with them alllll day long ;)
Fortunately, this acquisition now means that I don’t need or want to buy any more Balenciaga bags. OK, with maybe the new Balenciaga mini-city as the exception, because how cute is it?!?!
Anyway, one of my best gfs in NYC has a brand new Balenciaga city in ‘black’ lambskin for sale. It’s in brand new/mint condition, comes with original dustbag and cards, measures 15″x9.5″x5.5, and has regular hardware. It retails US$1,500 plus tax, and she’s willing to sell it to a lucky buyer for US$1,200 inclusive of FREE international insured shipping. Keen? Let me know and I’ll put you in touch :)
