My black city bag

I finally got a Balenciaga City in black yay!

P1380399

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.

    Hi Mia. May I know which City is this? It’s gorgeous and seems to be the perfect size for someone petite.

    Hi Mia! Just bought the same exact bag from mytheresa.com too. Thanks for introducing this website. Awesome awesome! But just wondering if the zipper for the bbag now shows the letter B and not Lampo anymore. 🙂 <3

      Woohoo. I think everyone should just shop at MyTheresa. They have it in almost every color, season after season. Yup, the recent bags have the B zips.

        Hi. Do you have to pay for the VAT when buying from MyTheresa?
