Marie Claire features new floral Pom Pon

I have to say that I am a sucker for Balenciaga print bags!  I have not fully committed to them yet.. but I've own an 06 Toile Day for a few months and sold it because it was too "used" for my liking and currently have a mint Damask Stripe City that I'm trying to sell!

This bag is in the August Issue of Marie Claire (Dakota Fanning on the cover).  It is priced at $1245.  It has a very pretty red and white floral pattern against a black background.  The drawstring is different too with a black and white diamond design and black tassels at the end.  Even the hardware is different, it appears to be gold toned!

This bag really pulls on my heart strings.. it is a very beautiful fall bag.  It will definitely compliment a drab winter outfit.  I'm putting this one on my wishlist!

ETA about getting some more information on this bag, Milan boutique does not have it, Cannes boutique asked me, "Is this a balenciaga bag?" and when I replied yes, I got no other response..  How professional!  London said yes we're getting it in, but very limited stock.  Waiting on the US boutiques answer.

ETA 7/30: NY boutique says its part of the Spring 2011 collection.. so it may be a long while before this hits stores. 

I also believe that this is the Mini sized pom because it looks small compared to the boot on the opposite page.  What do you think? Yay or nay?
