I finally understand what ALL the fuss is about now, all the comments about smooshyness, I FINALLY GET IT!!!! I am proud to present my very first (and NOT the last) Balenciaga bag, the City in steel (at least I think it is!) all the way from Paris! My mum's friend helped me get it, it cost 945€ before VAT deduction. Thanks to all you gorgeous TPFers for helping me out with my queries before I made my decision, now just one teeny favour. Can someone PLEASE confirm for me that my bag is steel and not black? I asked her to buy me the steel or black if steel wasn't available, and I just checked the receipt and cards, it doesn't state the colour! IRL it looks a lot like black but not quite... And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell!! Can't wait to bring her out hehe..
