Balenciaga- or something else???

  1. Hi all, I am new here but always been bag obsessed.Lately craving a Balenciaga but can;t seem to justify the ticket unless I find a super deal or gently used...I get tired of my bags so I don;t like to spend THAT much....
    any ideas? Or any other recs for a satchel/tote in black, pref leather or distressed??TIA
     
  2. I looked atthat one today..is it too skinny?
     
  3. It lists the dimensions as:

    Dimensions: 15.5 in. L x 8.5 in. D x 7.5 in. H
     
  4. HI there : ) I feel the same as you..I was choosing between a bbag or a new outfit. I bought a linea pelle bag and an outfit instead..p.s. strangely it kinda looks like the whistle. Really soft leather and it was cheeeeap $300. Though it's not "high end" I love the feel of the leather..soft and distressed!
     
  5. Hmm..may take a look. is theheight of it enough? That's my concern on it..though I think I want something bigger:drool:
     
  6. I would go for a Balenciaga city. It's the perfect size in my opinion. Get a Balenciaga, you won't regret it.
     

  7. I agree...beautiful bags that will never go out of style..

  8. I had the same problem several months ago -- love the Balenciaga look and feel, but just couldn't justify the price tag. I finally surrendered and bought one, though, and now I have THREE. There is just nothing else out there that offers the colors, smooshy leather, and light weight.

    Good luck!
     
  9. check out diabro, they have great prices on authentic bbags! good luck
     
  10. Just bought my first B-bag today at the new NM Last Call in Orlando, a dark brown whistle for under $600. I'm loving it!!
     
  11. congrats!
     
  12. Honestly, get a Balenciaga...once you do, you can't even understand how you lived all your life without a bbag. Check eBay, there are some pretty good deals on, and I assume that there will be more because of the free/discounted listing fees. Just make sure to get it authenticated in the bbag forum!
     
  13. Wow! Congrats!
     
  14. diann, are you stuck on Bal. or open to other brands? Marc by Marc Jacobs bags have nice dimensions and very nice leather. Cole Haan is a great value with a range of styles.

    If you really want a Bbag in a certain size, check out their subforum here. Maybe they can help you with some authentic, little-used ones on eBay.

    Good luck finding a bag you'll love and welcome to the Purse Forum!
