Perhaps its Instagram or Tumblr's fault that my taste in things have increasingly more expensive over the last 2 years. While this is good since it makes me prioritize my purchases and become more financially conscious of my impulse and food purchases, it is terrible for my wallet.
However, the good thing for me is that I recently got a raise at one of my jobs and I got a another job back in November, so hopefully my wishlist credentials will become a reality much quicker.
Anyways, I've never been a huge fan of Balenciaga when it became super popular a couple years ago, but this particular collection (seasonal = probably won't be able to get it by the time I save up for it *sigh*) as caught my eye due to the fact that it has more edgy hardware and is made with chévre (goatskin) leather (one of the more "softer" leathers). It also meets my standard handbag credential to have the choice of handles or cross body/shoulder strap.
Here's what's still available on the Balenciaga website (the mini version).
The regular "City" size looks more like this (and more expensive - $2,280).
It also came in a bordeaux/wine colour.
What do you think? Black or wine? Personally, I like the black but I feel like I have too many black bags and I should expand my bag colour repertoire. However, blacks are less worrisome and the signs of wear and denim colour transfer are less apparent.
Thanks for reading!
