Nicole Richie's Damask Courier

Nicole Richie was spotted hitting the gym yesterday carrying a rare Balenciaga gem.  On her shoulder is a 2006 Damask Stripe Courier bag.  It is one of my favorite canvas bags that Balenciaga has designed.  I loved it so much that I bought the City twice but ended up selling them off because I felt that the beautiful canvas fabric wasn't a practical choice for me.  I think the Damask line makes a great neutral that adds an extra "oomph" to a plain outfit.  The Damask design came in the City, Work, Courier, and Day.  Instead of aged brass hardware, it boasts shiny silver toned classic hardware.  My only complaint is that the canvas fabric on these delicate bags start to fuzz after moderate use.  I bet Nicole knows that since she doesn't carry these bags frequently either!

Nicole must be a big fan since she owns both the Damask City and Courier! I would love to raid her bag closet!
