I finally got a Balenciaga City in black yay!
I said finally because the first Balenciaga bag that I ever wanted was a City bag in black. 5 years and 5 bags later, I had the City in different colors, but not black. In my head, I kept on telling myself that the colors that I wanted could be around only that season, but the black bag is always around. Why buy a black City now? I could buy it later.
So… what was it that made me get the black bag?
When Mama returned from Paris mid last year, she brought home her own Balenciaga bag. A sleek Metallic Edge City in black with gold hardware. I thought, damn, the bag looked so good in the color. Felt like I had to have the City in black!
Soon after, I ordered the bag.
Being aware that I’d already bought another bag just before that, when the bag arrived, I thought that I shouldn’t be using the bag just yet. Partly guilty because it’s obviously not prudent.
So macam biasa, I hid it inside the wardrobe, pretending that I never bought a black City and decided that it shall be my advanced purchase year end or bonus bag, which may only be carried… at year end.
It’s year end. I only took it out of the wardrobe recently and brought it to Tokyo with me. It’s now broken in and it’s beauuutiful.
After getting this bag, I no longer feel the need to admire bags, online or offline. I’ve found the bag I’ve always wanted and I’m content!
Hmmm but I might change my mind in a couple of months lol.
