The other night my boyfriend was searching for a few things on Craigslist, so I got curious and searched for Balenciaga. I found a few listings that were obviously fakes, but one of them actually looked really good from the pictures, so I emailed the lister. She agreed to meet me on her lunch break and lo and behold, it's a beautiful, authentic 2006 Black First! Sadly she had lost the shoulder strap and it looks like it hasn't been stored very carefully (the handles need to be reshaped a bit) but it's in perfect condition and the leather is thick and wrinkly. I got it for $300! Between this and the Violet Twiggy on its way to me from Aloha Rag, this is a great week!
