I just saw a lady carry a Balenciaga bag today at the mall. At first I thought it was a fake, because here in Vancouver I just rarely see any Balenciagas real or fake...anyways I digress... After getting a closer look at the bag, withought seeming too obvious it looked like a caramel bag with raised silver hardware. What was funny was that the size seemed to be somwhat between a first and a city size (it looked like the same length and height as a first and about the same depth as a city) Also, the handles looked to be longer too. In fact, she removed the shoulder strap and wore the handles over her shoulders comfortably and she didn't particularly had skinny arms. The reason why at second glance I thought that it is real is because this bag had great leather! And apprently the lady must love her bag because it was well worn and almost all the tassles were split and some broken off! Was there ever such a bag made? If so, does anyone have a picture of one?....just very curious...thanks.
