I have a Balenciaga in black. I believe it's the City Classique in medium (the larger size compared to the small one). I got it at a Christmas gift this past christmas and it hasn't left my side ever since I got it. But... Recently I saw photos of Christina Aguilera carrying a red Balenciaga bag. It's obviously not the same one I have. And if I read everyone's past few entries the style is "the purse". My question is this. I can't carry the Classique over my shoulder as a shoulder bag (like I see Nicole Ritchie or anyone else doing it - mainly because I'm short and tubby.) But the "purse" looks as if the bag handle drop is bigger. Is it meant to be a shoulder bag or is it the same sized handle as a Classique? Thanks to anyone who can help!
