I did it, I finally finally did it!!! You all had to listen to me go back and forth for many months (it feels like years) over which Balenciaga bag I would ultimately buy. I had my mind set on getting a Balenciaga Bag, the decision process came down to the color. Balenciaga is known for their rich and vibrant use of color and BBag lovers wait with bated breath every season to what colors will be released from the house [check out Fall 2010 colors here].

I literally could not choose a color. I was sure anthracite was the best choice, but when I looked my bags I saw how many other gray bags my collection contained. And today while browsing Balenciaga online, the perfect color looked me in the eye and said, “Yo, you realize your bag collection is lacking a gorgeous neutral tan color. Buy me”. For real, the color Seigle spoke to me. My credit card spoke back and next thing I knew I had a confirmation number arriving in my email inbox for my Balenciaga Giant City in Seigle.

The wait is over. The obsession has only just begun. The best way to satisfy a weekend obsession is with a weekend purchase, and that is precisely what I did via Balenciaga for $1,795. Pictures to come soon!

    Megs –

    PERFECT choice.
    While it is true that Bal has many stunning colors that we all lust over, past/present/future, your pick is timeless and classic and I know that you will use her endlessly and never tire of her.

    Good for you, Megs! You see? Nothing beats an ACTUAL, FULL PRICE Balenciaga! Haha. I think this color will look lovely with your blonde hair and light skin complexion; very sofisticated. Enjoy it in the best of health.

    Congratulations on your incredible Balenciaga purchase. First and foremost I am hugely jealous. I have enjoyed listening to decide which bag to purchase. What I find enjoyable about your posts is that you actually tell us what bag you purchase and share with photos. Part of loving this blog is living through all of you. I wish you would share more on the blog I am sure you share more on the forum, but I prefer the blog. I would love to see your purchases from season to season.

    That is a lovely bag and color! I still prefer my SGH Galet giant City with the lady-like detail around edges. I can wear my Bal with anything! Seigle is a very good neutral though!

  • Thumbelina Fashionista

    It’s so pretty–I’m drooling over that shade.

  • Haruko

    Please write a follow up blog entry! I was thinking about purchasing this handbag too but I saw your facebook post about how you weren’t happy with the color!!!

  • Marthena

    I bought a city Tomate one for my first Bal! It’s a loud pop of color but I can’t help it- I use it everyday! Now I’m a total Balenciaga freak! Can’t wait for my next trip to buy another color!

  • Moonchild

    Oh wow, your new bag is absolutely gorgeous! :-)
    I’m so jealous! :-)
    Congratulation on your new fabulous bag! :-)

  • wenrich

    I did the same! I sold my seigle GSH city the next day after I received it. It was a disappointment for me. Pictures of seigle look gorgeous on the site which is why i ordered it.. but when it arrives, my heart did not thump ..
    I wanted to return the bag but SA adviced me it would be better I sell it would be costly to have it shipped and import duties I may have to bear.. I am glad I did
