    Default Thinking of Balenciaga...help

    Hey everyone! I have been looking at Balenciaga purses on the forum and on their website... They are beautiful...I love all the colors and it looks sooo soft...I just have never seen one in person...Can someone tell me what is good about them...i know they're beautiful...but I was just wondering why yall pick Balenciaga over brands like Louis Vuitton....

    The purse i've been looking is the Giant City...don't know what color yet..

    hm... i'm really thrilled by their colors, the leather is smoochy soft!! it's a stylish & classic piece that always in. I also like the design of the bag corners (for city and PT). The tassels is a plus. Let's not forget the handle, it's unique.

    it's really hard for me to describe, but i love bal, i'm waiting for my color to expand my bal collection. ^^

    Thanks girls..It does look really soft..I need to find a store in Charleston that sells them and see it in person...I saw a post on here that says they sell at Bob Ellis downtown, but i thought they only sell shoes...I'm probably going to give them a call

    What I love most about Bal are the colors. Some leather is softer than others (at worst it can be thin and dry; at best, droopingly soft and plump). I also really like that they're logo-free.

    It definitely helps to see them in person, so you can try on for size and get a sense for the color. Some die-hard Bbag ladies won't buy without seeing in person, so they can specifically check out the leather.

    I hadn't been able to touch one in real life, just saw from far away, but as soon as I got mine I knew why people loved them so much!! The leather is really soft, the colors are amazing, and not as many people have them as other designer bags.

    What I love about bbags is the smooshy, distressed and super soft leather and the colors of course. Each season they will have new colors and I just love the feeling of touching the leather

    ^ You really can't compare the two since the leathers are so different. Balenciaga leather is distressed and very lightweight. It's kind of hard to explain. Mine is silky to the touch but some are quite wrinkly. It all depends on what you prefer and it's best to know what kind of leather you want if you have to order sight unseen.
    Is there anywhere you can go and try them on in person? Then that way you can see the difference in Balenciaga leathers.

    HTH!
