You all know about my seemingly never-ending quest to find the perfect Balenciaga bag right? If you follow us on Twitter (do that now), you will know that the hunt is over. In fact, rather than it being me that finally found the one, it was Vlad who surprised me with the bag. He took away the constant worry and stress over this BBag hunt that I have been actively taking part in and simply got the job done. Matter of fact, I could not have picked a better combination if I tried. My bag is a color that I spoke of highly from Balenciaga in a hardware finish that I never considered: rose gold.

Let me tell you something, the Rose Gold Hardware on Balenciaga Bags is the perfect touch of glam. The post all about my new bag will come next week, but for now I have another option that my eyes are currently stuck on, the Balenciaga Giant City in Military Green with Rose Gold Hardware.

You will now never be able to get by a BBag post on PurseBlog without me reminding you of my rose gold hardware love. I had a preconceived notion that the rose hue would look tacky and cheap but it is quite the contrary. The color is subtle yet glamorous. And the thimbles (yes, my mom started calling the hardware on BBags thimbles and it has stuck for me as well) are a deeper pewter hue. This leaves you with two different color variables paired together, and they are working it like there is no tomorrow.

I totally dig this creamy-taupe-green hue on the Giant City. As you know, these bags are like chameleons so you might want to check it out in person first. Buy via Barneys for $1,795.

    I’m not a fan of GH since it’s a bit trendy and the added weight but if I ever decide to get one it would be RG and this combo with the militaire is just perfect. I agree about seeing it in person if you’re seriously thinking about purchasing one as the color is a bit dull in person compare to photos I’ve seen which I was a little disappointed with like the Murier. Can’t wait for the F/W 2011 Bleu Lavande and Coquelicot! :)

  • Rebecca

    I am a huge Balenciaga fan, but that bag is just so drab. Not loving the color.

  • Lindsay

    I usually like rggh but military green with rggh just makes the bag look dirty =/

  • 19yearslater

    I really like it. It would go with lots, but it’s not black or tan. The rose gold hardware is gorgeous, too.

    • lulugurl2006

      P.s. Congrats megs on finally getting ur BBag!!!

  • KaylaNiche

    I’m not a fan of this color. I just think this style of bag looks better in basic white or black, maybe a pattern? I don’t know. *shrug*

  • May Luong

    Actually i think this one is the best thing for subtle glam, yet rug n bohemian like city girl who would wanna switch style up, who luv 2 b polish but with some miss and match or casual but glam, totally my thing, kekek, if i can afford it of course :)

  • delaney

    can’t wait to see your new bag! not loving the color on this army green one though, i have to say…

  • Maggie

    I also love Balenciaga, but I have to say I am also not a fan of this color…

  • Dawn

    I like it! I think it’s edgy yet understated.

  • Alyson

    My Balenciaga City has GH in rose gold and I love it. In fact, the hardware is what made me buy the bag. The leather color is a very light gray, I think it is called Nacre?

  • m1ni

    gorgeous…now i can’t decide between this and Chloe Marcie. Anyone know the weight of this bag?

    Use HTML color picker if you need to choose from an almost infinite variety of colors. Also, if you like a color scheme of a web page view Tip142 for a fantastic tool that can be used to gather that page’s color codes.

  • babe


  • Cathy Fitz

    Can’t wait to see your new BBag! This color I’m not a fan of for myself, but you’ve got me interested in the rose gold hardware.

  • The Fashionable ESQ

    Loving everything about this; the green is perfect, it will go with everything and the rose gold accents are unexpected but go so well w/ the green. Love the color combo!

  • Erica

    I just got mine in First. The color combination of militaire and rose gold hardware is amazing. You really have to see it in person. This color is really hard to capture in pictures.

  • Karin bag4bag

    That color looks lovely.

  • Lucinda

    I think it’s a great combination, the rose gold HW with militaire gives a very military/urban chic. I never like the silver or gold giant hardware and got mine with regular HW but rose gold has seriously changed my mind…

  • Shivadiva

    Congrats on your new B-Bag!!! I´ve got the same one – and I looooooove it! It goes with everything – and I love the colour combi. I´m totally addicted to the roségold HW – Enjoy!

  • Stephanie

    I love the color and the size. I saw an imitation at Target this weekend – it was so ugly. Gotta stick to the real deal! Beautiful!

  • edoardo

    The model is obviously really beautiful but the color…please what is this shit?

  • Staci

    Megs, I really love the military green!

  • Chele

    Congratulations! The hunt is over….

    Enjoy your beautiful Bal!

  • Hannah

    i ADORE this color!!! green is perfect to transition each season and will look just as great in spring as it will in the dead of winter!
    and rose gold is amazing! i was a critic as well until i glimpsed at a chunky fossil boyfriend watch in rose gold and it was over. now i get compliments on it on a daily basis.

    and vlad deserves a post by himself!! he has excellent taste and picked an awesome gift! what a great husband — yay vlad!!

  • Krista

    I am usually not into the military look, but I like this one!

  • Shopping Lady

  • Rashida

  • Christine A.

    Can’t wait to see your bbag! Hey, it’s been a week! Bring it on!

  • KdS

    Love it, but I love the yellow gold hardware more! The military green rocks, Balenciaga bags look yummy in any colour to me :)

  • Beth S.

    It’s a beauty! Ignore those who don’t like the military green. Green ROCKS! (I have the same bag in Light Green with Silver Giant Hardware and it’s AWESOME.)

  • fw23

    I’m a huge fan of BB but the military green with rggh is not really me. Luv blue roi with ggh, but its really hard to find. (hicks2)

  • Kamchin

    I saw the Military Green with rose gold in First bag….I have to say…the green and rose gold….go so well together!!!!
