Nicole Richie's Damask City

Nicole Richie was spotted leaving her local gym on November 30, 2011.  She designates her gorgeous Damask Classic City as her choice of handbag.  Nicole keeps her outfit monochromatic like her bag with a puff shoulder jacket and white top.

The Damask Stripe and Toile collection released in 2006 is one of my favorite renditions of the City bag that Balenciaga has created.  The small shiny silver hardware makes a lovely contrast against the striped canvas fabric which is reminiscent of pewter hardware from 03-04. There is something so wonderful about this black and white bag that goes with nearly any type of look.  The Damask Stripe City is also owned by Nicky Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.  Nicole loves it so much that she owns this in the Courier style as well.

Readers and their Balenciagas Part 12

It's been a while since I've done a readers post, so I thought it would be a great time since I just received enough photos for another round.. this time we've reached a dozen sets! I'd like to thank everyone who submitted their beautiful photos.  If you'd like to participate in the next set (bloggers are welcomed), please email me your photo at

Alice F. who is a photographer for the shopping website Alduca D'Aosta shares with a gorgeous photo of her F/W 2011 Coquelicot Classic Work bag that matches beautifully with her red flats.  This has to be one of my favorite reader photos as of yet!

Joanna from the blog xJOLE submitted a breath taking photo of her F/W 2011 black Classic City bag.  The perfect classic bag for any wardrobe.  Check out her fashion blog for more great photos!

Lovely reader Shizue shares with us another beautiful purchase; F/W 2011 Papyrus City with Rose Gold Giant Hardware.  Papyrus is definitely one of the hit colors for this season!

Beautiful Allison shares with us her 08 Amethyst City with Covered Giant Hardware.  Amethyst is a fun pop of magenta which was also a huge hit among Bal fans. 

Lovely Kellie shares with us an amazing photo from Times Square New York showcasing her stunning Black City "Dots" which is a fun twist from the traditional City design.  The City Dots leather has a really cool perforated leather texture accented with classic hardware in gold!

...that's all for now! :) Please share yours!

Kylie Jenner's Black Classic City

Kylie Jenner was spotted with Cody Simpson at the Grove shopping center in Los Angeles, CA on November 27, 2011.  She looks cute and chic with her black Balenciaga Classic City that could possibly be her sister, Kendall's bag.  We do know that Kylie did get gifted with a F/W 2011 Coquelicot Classic City for her 14th birthday. Fourteen is a definitely a young age to be carrying a $1500 bag in my opinion, but whatever goes in Hollywood!

Tallulah Willis and family were spotted at France’s Paris Charles de Gaulle airport on November 24, 2011.  She was spotted out with carrying a Classic Velo bag! Even though the Velo makes a great messenger style bag, she chooses to remove the shoulder strap and wear hers handheld style.  Bruce Willis's youngest is growing up to be a fashion diva!

Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers! :)
