    Default What style do you like the most?

    I was browsing Bal bags online again and was thinking that the Twiggy is really cute. And then I was also thinking that I like the First, too. Initially, I wanted to get the City and now I'm just so indecisive again . Though I was thinking that the First might be a bit too small. So what style do you guys like the best? I know many of you have a First or City, but does anyone own a Twiggy? And what's the price difference?

    Off topic, but I absolutely LOVE the Compagnon wallet!!! Anyone know how much they go for?

    THANKS!

    Out of the bags you have listed, I only have the city. It retails for $1195.00. I did not see it before I purchased it, and honestly, I was surprised at the size... I thought it would be larger. At this point, I need to point out I normally carry larger bags. I also purchased a part-time and I much prefer its size. I have a part time with giant hardware, which I believe was $1645.00. I don't know anything about the Twiggy, but I am on a wait list for a First... do I know it retails for $995.00. Hope some of this helps!

    I was on a waitlist for a magenta day... and they actually just called today. I will have to see a picture before I order the bag though. As I have mentionned in other posts, every magenta bag I have seen from this season has been "veiny". The electric blue is the best bet, I believe. From what I have seen, every bag is stunning! I am also waiting for a bright yellow first. (I figured the bright, bright color would look better in a smaller bag).

    I currently own a grass green city, which is too die for... and a jaune part-time.

    All Balenciagas are just too big for me! I like to have little purses... I don't like big ones. Anything over 12 inches in length is just too big. I think I said this in another thread, but I really like the Mini Classique and the Mini Twiggy. Both would be the perfect size and both have been discontinued. Now I can't even find a used on for less that $800.

    Right now my Favorite is the Twiggy but the City is a CLOSE 2nd! But I only really like broken in Twiggy's because they slouch just perfectly. I believe the Twiggy retails for $1095. It holds a lot!

    boys - OMG, they make a MINI TWIGGY????? Or made I should say, right? That would be so darn cute! I would love to see a pic of one!!!

    QC - Yeah I really like the twiggy. I see most people with a City or First though. But the shape of the twiggy is nice. I'll never decide on what to get.....

    I think I'm going to have to take a trip to Greenwich sometime soon so i can check out the collection over at Saks. And it's like almost a 2 hour drive....

    I'm going to check that out now! I can't wait to see an "un-veiny" version! I've only seen a couple previous pics, and they weren't so good. Since I have to order B-Bags (because they are unavailable in my area), I really wanted to be sure the magenta was for me.
