5 Reasons Why I Love the Balenciaga Black City Bag

1) It is elegant yet understated and goes well with casual outfits (i.e. what I wear 95% of the time!)
Nicole Richie

2) It can also be worn as a shoulder bag

3) You don't have to worry about staining or handle darkening as you do with light colored Bals. (Fading can be a problem - but Katherine from Feather Factor shares a solution for that here.)
Hillary Duff

4) It's spacious and durable - so it's a great "Mommy" bag
Sarah Michelle Gellar & daughter

5) The best reason: My sweet hubby got me one for my birthday/anniversary present ♥♥♥♥

    1. They are ridiculously pricey - especially in Canada...but this wedding anniversary is a big one - and it's definitely cheaper than diamonds - and I love it more - not really into wearing too much jewelry!

  12. Hi!
    I would like to order my first Bal bag so badly, I love this! Can I ask, what kind of your Bal (City) is now when you have used it? Does it damaged easily?

    1. Hi Anniina,

      I've used this bag around a couple of times a month - I haven't had any noticeable damage or fading. I think black is a good option because you don't have to worry about handle discoloration or color transfer.
