Current Lust: Balenciaga Bag

Recently I have this bee in my bonnet in the form of a Balenciaga Giant Part Time bag. Normally I will see this style as something trendy which is not my cup of tea but something is tugging at me. I adore the simple shape with edgy gold accent. I can see myself using this black bag to make the simplest outfit snazzy. Also, this is a Balenciaga classic which should bring me many years of utility. I tried it in the boutique and liked it very much. I am on the fence because I liked it instead of loved it...... So do you think this is a savvy worthy bag investment at $1895?

Update on Glasses Giveaway: I have decided to pull the giveaway until I receive my glasses to share with everyone, which should be in the week or so. For those who entered already, everything will remain the same. Sorry for the delay!

  10. @Maddy: LOL... I am not rolling in dough. : ) I am very strategic when I buy things. I tend to save up and buy big investment pieces. Can't afford to buy new bags all the time.

  18. Ha.ha.ha... since you like it "very much" I will say just go for it - Part-time is classic - if you get tired of the bag later, Balenciaga's resale value is high :)

  22. i really like this bag. i think it could def be a good investment piece. i admire how you really think about things, you're not an impulse buyer. i've been working on this these past couple of yrs. trying to be more responsible with money. ;)
