… or a very early Christmas present. I’ve been collecting bags for almost a decade now and consider my collection well rounded. So recently I didn’t have any major bag cravings until I saw a thead on the Purseforum… it showed the beautiful Balenciaga City bag in a color I didn’t notice until then. Ultraviolet. It was a bold and bright purple, just the way I love it. I quickly went to Balenciaga online to see if they had a model I had in mind…
While I like the City style I was always eyeing a Balenciaga Part Time over the years since I like east west styles in general. I actually wanted to buy it in a local store, but of course it offered only a small selection and not the model I wanted. At least I was able to check whether Ultraviolet was bright enough for me.
A first peek of the handles that fit over my shoulders, which is a rare incident.
Now what pairs better with purple than gold? Of course I had to get the (not so) Giant (anymore) gold hardware.
Sorry for the watermarks, but in this day and age it would be irresponsible not to mark such images of designer items as they can be easily misused on Feebay and the likes.
It was love at first sight. Everything about this bag is perfect. Well, except for the fact that it should not be carried in pouring rain… Anyway, the Part Time can be carried in your hand, on the shoulders and cross body as well. Talk about versatile. In addition it is lightweight for a leather bag. And very soft. And roomy. And friggin beautiful.
Okay, enough about my newest bag crush. Oh did I say it’s the perfect color for fall? Love it <3
