My Balenciaga collection has changed significantly since I first fell in love with the style. My favourites had always been the ones with the GGF (G21) hardware in the colours below. All are pre-owned, all of them are my HGs. They truly give me joy. :love:

Thank you so much! Closet feels better after Kon-mari'ying! I have been doing mine in stages, as opposed to one go, but found that it has helped to cut down on meaningless shopping, and I wear proportionally far more items in my closet.

Many congrats!
The leather of your bags looks beautiful :smile:
How many handbags did you keep in total?
I have the target of not exceeding 10.. Not counting gym bags or things like that.
I have to say it's not easy but I feel better this way, probably more in control ;)

Congrats & I love your approach HQ... I'm slowly trying to do this myself & have let go of many Bal's myself over the last 2 years. I adore your trio of beauties... all favorite colors of mine! [emoji173]️[emoji8]

I applaud you Gringach and Harper Quinn for getting your collection down to 10 and 9. I don't think I can ever get down to 10 but I have been working on downsizing my collection (happy to say much better off today than a year ago --- still buying but with more thoughts going into it and replacing impulse buys with more special bags). Reading about your success is inspiring.

Thank you very much. It's been a work in progress. There are some real inspirational stories under the 'wardrobe' thread. It's good to create some space- though I am still working on it!
