I'm going to New York next week and I'm going on a major shopping spree. I'm planning to visit the Balenciaga store and all the usual department stores. I've been wanting a BBag since May (when I got into designer handbags) and so I think I'm going to buy myself an early Christmas present!!! I need some advice girls! Is it better to buy Bbags through the Balenciaga store or through a department store? Are they more expensive at the boutiques or department store, and are there any benefits for buying at either place? Are there any colors that wear out more than others? I'm planning on getting a black city. Is there anything else I should know? I'm SO excited girls!
