Hi, welcome to Bal! :flowers: The GH City is about 15 by 10 by 5.5 (inches). Is your City about this size?

^piper, giant refers to the hardware style, not the bag style. if you check out the Bal Reference Library, there is plenty of information about Balenciaga bags. :smile:

Congrats! If you think the city is too small for you, then you might want to check out part time and work. IMHO they are the perfect size to go with giant hardware!

^ ITA -- if you think the GH looks too big on the City (or makes the City look too small), maybe you'll like the Work. Everything feels a bit more spaced out and plus, it sits more comfortably on the shoulder.
 
Good thing for you is that Bal.com has a very friendly exchange/policy...as opposed to Bal bricks-and-mortar stores. I personally shy away from Giant hardware on the City (although I love the City w/RH), so---if you like the Giant hardware---I encourage you to check out the Part-time and Work.

I've become SO much more informed on Bal since my first purchase until the shamefully-informed position in which I now find myself. I predict that you will develop a FAB collection as you become more informed. WELCOME TO THE CLUB!

Warmly, DonnaD
