Balenciaga Giant 12 Gold City
About 2 months ago, I got a pink Chanel medium flap and I told myself that I should stop buying any handbag at least for some time. But after taking out my first Balenciaga part-time bag to use, I randomly visited balenciaga.com to "have a look" lol. Of course, I should not have looked, because when I saw this colour with the gold hardware city bag, I just fell in love with this bag. I always wanted a light pink/ pale pink/light baby pink with gold hardware handbag but I was never lucky enough to get them. I have other pink color handbags but honestly they all are not really what I really dream for the colour, I felt like I always miss the chance to get them. So, I didn't want to miss this chance anymore. ( Yes, I know it is a bad excuse XD) Let's say it is a early Christmas present for me to feel better.
And, since I got my first balenciaga part-time bag, I discovered the colour of the pictures on balenciaga.com are totally different than the real colour of the bag. So, this time I did a research on google and Instagram. The colours of the bag are different on different situations/ lighting/ camera. The better way is go to the store and see the bag in real but for me, ordering on Internet is much easier because the store is too far from my home.

Personally, I prefer the colour in real than on the photos.
Comparing with the part-time bag, city is a bit smaller and the strap length is shorter. I prefer the size of the city! But I can feel the weight difference between the classic and the giant 12 which is heavier than the classic.
For the new vision, Balenciaga added these two pockets inside the bag. I really love these pockets in which I can keep my sunglasses, my phone and a coin purse.
↓ Below, some photos to show the colour differences.

Sometime it turns to peachy colour.
I love this bag so much, it perfectly holds what I need everyday, comparing with other leather handbags, it is much lighter, also you can wear it on your shoulder and I love the vintage look of the leather and the smell. And, the colour and gold hardware are the main reasons I love this bag so much! It is probably my no.2 favourite in my handbag collection. Guess which bag is my no.1 favourite?
Oh, I discovered this colour is out of stock on balenciaga.com after I placed my order! Did I order the last one in stock? If yes, I'm so lucky and I feel much more excited now lol hahaha...
I'm editing the video of this bag, it will upload on my youtube channel soon.
P.S It is not a bragging post, please don't leave any hate comments on it. Thank you!
