Balenciaga bag (secondhand via MOSS)
I’ve had a secret desire for a Balenciaga bag for years, but I was unwilling to pay full price or buy from ebay, so I had kind of given up on ever owning one. But this one showed up at MOSS designer consignment recently and I was instantly in love. It was still too much at full price, so I waited not-so-patiently for it to be marked down and hoped that it would still be there when it went on sale. I think it didn’t sell because of the denim staining and wear on the bag, but honestly, I don’t think the wear is that bad – I mean, it looks used, that’s all, not destroyed – and my friend Sari at MOSS was able to get a lot of the denim stain off, so I felt like it was a steal at the price. AND I had store credit for my consigned items, so it was kind of a no-brainer. I LOVE yellow with gray, and you know I wear a lot of gray – and black – and white – so I think it will fit in quite nicely to my wardrobe. And it adds just the right amount of color 😉
I’m excited to have something in my wardrobe that really makes me smile. Not that I don’t have any pieces already that I have an emotional reaction to, but last year, I got rid of many items that I DID love, in favor of making my wardrobe more practical, and ultimately more monotone and easy to work with. This year, I don’t plan on adding much to my wardrobe, because I REALLY don’t need anything, but what I do decide to add will have to make me smile, and I will have to LOVE it.
We’ll see what I can find! (I can already tell you that when these Repetto BB flats get marked down they will be MINE)
