I need help in deciding which to get. I will have enough money to get the spy in cognac next Friday. But this crush that I have on the Balenciaga bag is getting hotter by the day. Should I just get the spy and just save up for the B-Bag later or should I get two B-bags (small and city)? HELPPP!!!

Is the spy a better purchase? Is it comfortable ont the shoulder? I actually went into the B-Store tonight and the B-Bag is practically weightless.

When you say practically weightless, do you mean that as a good thing? I haven't inspected a Balenciaga in person yet. Are they well made bags? They look gorgeous to me, but do they seem worth the price to you?

Balenciaga is very hot right now, but I think Fendi Spy is better. To me I think it has a very creative/innovative design to it. Again it's just me I think it's new design is well worth the money.

I have the Spy and I love it and because I love it sooo much I am thinking of getting another one. I can carry my spy on my shoulder comfortably or, carry it like a satchel or carry it on your arm. The spy is so light too in weight! and the leather is so gorgeous. I love the way it look on me and the way the Spy make me feel:love: :love: :love: . I don't have the Balenciaga yet but thinking of getting one too..eh ..I have a few other bags on my list!! Really bad but I think getting another the spy is my first priority.

One thing I think about the Spy bag is I can dress it up and down where the Balenciaga is a little bit more casual imo. So it's really depends what you are lookin for. Good luck and let us know what you decide:lol: .

I am biased I will have 3 spy bags and 1 hobo spy by the end of the summer! I was so over my spy until I tried on a bunch of clothes today for an upcoming vacation. The spy just added that little bit of a richer look than my other choices. The Balenciaga is gorgeous but more utilitarian of a look. More city. The spy is a little bit more versitile and sophisticated for a more dressed up look.

Yes its a very good thing. Especially when you get all your stuff inside of it. It won't be so much on your shoulders

You took the words right out of mouth, I have the lambskin cognac and it is simply beautiful.

I vote for Balenciaga too...they've been really hot for a few years now, and as InStyle put it recently, it's now considered a "classic" bag to own. The Spy is lovely too ;) .
