Documenting Balenciaga Shapes, Colors

  1. I am considering buying a Balenciaga City in ink, but I am totally unfamiliar with the shapes, sizes, and to some degree the colors of the Balenciaga line. Maybe the Balenciaga owners would post their pics here so those of us who don't have local access can see the bags? Also, pics of bags ON or HELD would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :smile:
  2. Thanks! That was very helpful. I love the Twiggy! But I think the City may be a better fit for me. Would you call the City a *big* bag?
  3. ^^^ I wouldn't call it a 'big' bag per se. I think it's the perfect size for daily use, but that's just IMO.

    This is my City on me. I'm 5'7'', if that helps any.
  4. The Twiggy shape is not counterfited like the other bbags which is part of the reason I chose it.
  5. Thanks! The second pic is really selling me on this bag. :love: What color is yours? Don't you love how when we take pics of ourselves in the mirror to post here we all look SO serious? :lol:
  6. ^^^ lol, It's cause that was the first time I'd ever used that camera, and I was trying make sure it wasn't wobbling. :lol:

    Mine's the Apple Green from S/S 05. Its so yummy. :love:
  7. To me, the City is the perfect size for me. I'm 5'3" and like it because I have to lug around a lot of stuff. The City holds everything PLUS SOME! It doesn't look huge on me either......just right!
  8. Looking at all of the pictures of the gorgeous city bags lately has made me wish that I had not gotten rid of all of mine. I think I'll have to get another city once the Fall '06 colors are released. I'm thinking either sapin or bleu roi.
  9. Englishgirl, that apple green is so gorgeous! It's one of my favorite B-bag colors; I'm totally "green" w/ envy :biggrin:
  10. Thanks Jag! i just read the whole thread, and I am really glad that I went for the City. I just hope the leather on my bag is nice since I don't get to pick it in person. :blink:
  11. No worries! I am sure the leather is going to be gorgeous. I also called the Balenciaga store in NYC to ask them about the shininess of the leather since some of the other members have warned about teh new bags v. old b-bags. Joseph there told me that as you wear them, they each become more matte and more plush. Which seems consistent with what the other ladies in the forum have said. I guess that is why they are so addictive- they get even better with time and use:love:
  12. english girl...aaaahhhhh you're making me want the apple green's gorgeous!!!! :nuts: :love: :shame:
