  1. Hi all--

    After stalking things for the past year or so, I am definitely ready to buy my first Balenciaga and would love some advice from all you experts out there! I am looking for a black hobo and/or crossbody that I can use for weekends and casual days. I usually don't carry much other than a wallet, sunglasses, iPhone and keys - but I do like bags that are larger rather than smaller (just in case!). My go-to bags for weekends right now are Jerome Dreyfuss and LV speedy B. Also have Chloe Marcie and Paraty, but use them more for workdays. Thanks in advance for your advice!😃
     
  2. Black Velo with regular hardware. It's a very light crossbody bag. The Town is another option, also crossbody but it's a small bag.
     

  3. Thank you so much -- those are both fabulous bags, and exactly what I was looking for.
     
  4. I hope you find a bag, that is perfect for your needs! :smile:
     

  5. Thanks! I followed BPC's advice and bought the Velo -- just got her yesterday and am in love! ImageUploadedByPurseForum1398465632.300127.jpg
     
  6. congrats!! You got it before the price increase
     
  7. Congrats on your first Bal!
     
  8. Congrats! I would love to see mod shots bc this exact bag is on my wish list. It'll so be my first bal prob not til fall though--gotta keep saving. It's between this bag and city, but love the crossbody option.

  10. Congrats, glad you love it. Smart to get it before the price increase.
     
  11. I was really happy to get it before the price increase -- which was pure luck because I didn't even know one was coming! Here is a mod shot (my first one ever, which confirms that a career as a photographer was not an option...). I am 5'6" for reference. Thanks, all -- TPF is so much fun!
