Aunt Kim out with Mason in Miami

We can definitely see that the Kardashian family love Balenciaga.  Not only do the sisters have quite a few in their collection, baby Mason Disick travels in style too with his Balenciaga Square Tote.  Today, March 31, 2010, Kim is wearing a fun peachy pink romper and was out shopping with nephew, Mason out in Miami, FL.  She carries her 2010 Sahara Classic City bag with her.

To shop Kim's look, click here for her Miss Ferriday romper, here for her Sam Edelman Gigi sandals, here for similar bag, and here for Mason's Orbit Stroller.

Balenciaga Sahara Day with Giant Rose Gold Hardware

Matches Fashion got in their first piece of Giant Rose Gold Hardware!  It is the 2010 Sahara Giant Day.  The Rose Gold Hardware is definitely different from what I was expecting.  The Balenciaga Sales Associate says it is suppose to look more like the aged brass hardware than gold giant hardware and thus the hardware is much darker.  It definitely looks like a Gunmetal color with hints of pink color.  What I found was odd was that they were not able to match the zipper's color to the hardware, because the thimbles and buckles have this "aged" look to it, but the zipper looks rose gold.  It is still a gorgeous combination, they should think about putting out another Gunmetal hardware like when they released the 2007 Neiman Marcus LE city.

Check it out here at Matches Fashion.

Nicole Richie attends traffic school

Nicole Richie was spotted attending traffic school class on March 31, 2010 in Van Nuys, CA.  The newly brunette beauty has been going to these classes for her DUI back in 2007.  She pairs a red scarf with black skirt and tights along with matching black oxfords.  Lace-up oxfords are a huge trend at the moment, I sometimes find myself browsing around for the perfect pair!  She tops off her casual yet chic outfit with her classic black Balenciaga City bag, though I really wish she would start carrying her other Bals too.  It also looks as though her poor City has suffered a white stain on the front!

Kourtney Kardashian's beach bag is a Balenciaga GCH Day

Kourtney Kardashian and sister Kim hit a Miami beach today, March 31, 2010.  Camera crews followed them everywhere as it appears they are filming for their reality show.  What's interesting is Kourtney's choice for a beach bag - a Balenciaga Giant Covered Hardware Day in white.  Though it is such a crisp, and stunningly bright color, white is the easiest color to get dirt stains on and color transfers.  I still love my Ivory bags though!

Kourtney Kardashian out in Miami

Kourtney Kardashian was spotted strolling around in Miami, FL, on March 24, 2010.  She is carrying her beautiful Balenciaga Black Giant City with Gold Hardware.  Her city bag compliments her black floral dress.  As always Gold Hardware against black leather is a striking combination.  It adds some "oomph" to an outfit.

Mezhgan Hussainy with yet another Balenciaga City!

Simon Cowell and fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy were spotted on March 27, 2010 stopping in at Pinkberry for some frozen treats.  Mezhgan is carrying another beautiful Balenciaga Bag-this time it is a 2009 Maldives Giant City with Silver Hardware from the spring/summer collection.  Maldives is a gorgeous baby blue color! I once owned a GSH Money Wallet in Maldives, but ended up selling it because the wallet was too big for my needs.

Alessandra Ambrosio with Balenciaga Argent GSH City

Supermodel beauty Alessandra Ambrosio and a friend hit new night club Trousdale in West Hollywood, CA on March 24, 2010.  She carries a gorgeous Balenciaga Argent Giant Silver City from the 2008 season.  This light gray shade was very popular when it first made its debut, and Bal Lovers are still craving  for the now sold out color.  It makes an amazing neutral that is not prone to show dirt as quickly as white.  Though, we can see that her handles have darkened significantly, one of the disadvantages to owning a Balenciaga bag.  Good thing these bags can be easily rejuvenated at LMB at a small fee.

Found these gorgeous modeling pictures on a Japanese website.  These are great reference pictures for those who can not try these on in real life before buying.  I have not considered the Sunday tote at all because of its open top, but seeing these pictures make me reconsider! Are any of these bags on your wish list?
