  1. After obsessing for 5 years and lurking in the Balenciaga forum for months I finally took the plunge and bought a F/W 08 RH Black City! I really wanted to go with a color but for my "first time" it seemed like I couldn't go wrong with black.
    It was so worth the wait, I :heart: this bag!! :yes:

    Since I live nowhere near a store that carries Balenciaga I had to order over the phone. Then there was the problem of knowing what type of leather to ask for.:shame: After reading in the shopping section I found the sweetest SA at Barneys in Dallas who talked me through the whole process. (Thanks Adrienne) She found a City with smooth, even leather and even emailed me pics to see if it was what I wanted.

    I would like your thoughts on this bag since you guys are pros!!:tup:

    BTW, I would like to say thanks for helping me over the past few months!

    I think you made a wise choice as a black city is a classic and you can't go wrong with it. It will match most everything. Congratulations
