Balenciaga G12 Mini City

I think I've caught onto the mini bag fever!  I keep coming back to look at Balenciaga newest adorable creation... their City shrunken into a pint-sized cutie!  What is clever is that it doesn't look like a child's handbag on an adult because of the messenger strap which purposes it to be a small cross body or shoulder bag.  I find that be a genius idea because who could say no to this pretty little thing?

Of all three styles.. the G12 Hardware Mini City, Classic Mini City and the Papier A4 Mini.. I'd have to say my favorite is the G12 Hardware.  I just love the shiny little hardware contrasting beautifully against the bag, but Shakira rocks her Classic Mini in black and makes it look so chic.

Shakira and her Black Classic Mini City

Expectant mom-to-be Shakira was spotted heading to a recording studio in Barcelona on December 17, 2012.  The singer who recently revealed that she is having a baby boy is dressed in shades of black and gray with leather pants and furry vest. Her favorite part of my outfit is that adorable Balenciaga Classic Mini City in Black!  The version she wears is the black classic style with tassels which cost slightly less at $1235 than the G12 gold hardware version at $1295.  I totally want the Mauve in G12 or the Papier A4 Mini in gorgeous Ultra Violet.  Givenchy is also turning their iconic Nightingale into a mini size.. called the Nightingale Micro - which I am a fan of as well!
