This may be my first balenciaga bag. I am considering the new blue (?navy). What are your opinions on the "First" style bag. I like the crossbody option. Do you think it looks just as good without the hardware?
The First is a really cute bag, but it is very small (too small for everday for me). It is great for running out to the store of taking it for a night out. I love it in the classic style. If it was a lot cheaper than the City I would probably get one but they are so close in price I would always go for a City instead.
Do you happen to be talking about the Town? The First doesn't come with a crossbody strap. But in any case, my First is always stuffed to the brim and I don't even carry alot! Although it's cute I think the size is a little too small, unless you carry very few stuff around. Hope that helps!
You are probably talking about the Town if you see a xbody option. It is a little taller than the First, so you may be able to get away with it as an everyday. You still won't be able to put alot. I love the City for everyday but it doesn't have the xbody. You may want to consider the Velo if you really need the xbody option and want an everyday bag.
