New smaller sized Balenciaga City

Balenciaga has introduced a new size for their Classic City, called the City Small.  It is smaller than the regular sized Classic City but slightly larger than their Mini City bag. 

What I like about this size is that it comes with a longer cross body strap. I am all about the convenience of a hands free purse.  It's a good in between choice for those who think the City is too big but then the Mini is too small! 

Matches Fashion has it slightly cheaper for $1495 where as Balenciaga.com has it retailing for $1645.  I usually shop at Matches if I can't find a cheaper price anywhere else since the currency conversion rates offer a small cost savings.
