I finally broke down, and get my first balenciaga. I wanted city first, but when the sales people showed me the mini bowling, I felt in loved with it, and got the mini bowling instead. I got it in Tabaco color. Anyway, I am thinking about to get the city on eBay later, and wishing I can get a deal from eBay instead of paying retail full price. Well, I do have a question for all of you. Do you carry your balenciaga everyday? Are the tassels easy to get splitted out?
