I think I’m the only person on the face of the planet who has a genuine distaste for blue. I didn’t realize that that was the case until I recently cleaned out my closet in an attempt to rid myself of things that I never wear, and I found myself left with a pile of blue clothing. Navy blue is one thing, but the blue I dislike tend to be any shade of medium or light blue, and baby blue in particular, which likely has something to do with my skin tone.
Balenciaga Handbags and Purses(Page 8)
Ok, so “giant hip” is perhaps not the most positive set of words for most women, but stick with me here – this bag is worth it. I’ve been conducting a search for my perfect mini crossbody bag at a perfect price over on PurseBlog Savvy, and I think I know why I’ve not been able to find one that makes me want to settle down and have a family with it – my perfect minibag can’t be found at a perfect price.
Thanks to our friends at Balenciaga, we got the latest scoop on the Spring 2010 B-Bags. After the jump you’ll find detailed shot, along with names and pricing information.
Ok I think I might have found it. It is almost plausible that my hunt for the perfect Balenciaga bag may be over. You all might be getting sick of me talking about my quest for my first Balenciaga bag, but truly, with so many options and such a focus on different colors for each season, how can someone make a choice?
In the interest of full disclosure, it’s important for you all to know that I’m an unapologetic Balenciaga fangirl. I can’t be unbiased on the brand’s classic Motorcycle Bags because I love them too much – I’ve owned four myself, in three different shapes, which puts the brand at the top of my all-time ownership list (I like to spread the money around, usually).
I have long been telling the story of my collection being Balenciaga-less. It is still Balenciaga-less, even though Vlad and I were on a mission to find me the perfect first Balenciaga bag when we were in NYC. What went wrong you ask, I’ll tell you below.
We started off at the Balenciaga NY store, which is truly off the beaten path near the Hudson River on 22nd Street.
One of my favorite parts of every new handbag season is waiting for the new Balenciaga colors to start hitting stores and websites. They’re my favorite brand and consistently product some of the most vibrant leather colors of any high-end designer. Since their bag shapes are simple and iconic, it lets the ever-changing leather shades take center stage, where some become highly sought-after and collectible.
This clutch is a favorite among the Purse Blog team. Amanda covered this Balenciaga clutch a few months ago, and as far as I know she still did not buy it. Then there is me, who has a slight obsession with clutches and loves the giant hardware on Balenciaga bags. So an oversized clutch with giant hardware is pure love for me.
I believe I have outwardly voiced my love of the giant hardware Balenciaga bags previously, the silver hardware to be exact. It is not that I do not love gold, in fact I have found a new love of gold jewelry. But when it came to BBags, I thought silver hardware was the perfect color. Now I am questioning myself. After seeing some of the new combinations of giant gold hardware on some Balenciaga bags I am torn.
For almost everyone, I think Balenciaga is one of those brands that you either understand or you don’t. Yes – they make more or less the same bags in different colors year after year. Yes – many of them haven’t changed drastically in design since they were first introduced. Yes – many people are happy to do what basically amounts to buying the same bag in a bunch of colors.
