Balenciaga Baby Daim Giant Black Suede Mini City


Balenciaga Baby Daim Giant Black Suede Mini City Bag

My Dream Bag…

I don’t usually make these types of posts anymore and haven’t in a long time, however I thought it would be relevant as it’s kind of personal. Ever since I took a trip to London a couple of months ago and entered Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, I completely fell in love with the Balenciaga Mini City bags! I had always been a fan of the City style, but it hadn’t ever crossed my mind about owning one because they were too big and extremely expensive, so when I saw the Mini City versions, I was besotted! The size is completely perfect for me as it’s not too small or too big, it’s just the right length and height. I think it looks even more gorgeous than the bigger versions as well since it’s a little more compacted. Those of you who know me will know that I never have lamb or goat leather bags or shoes because when I was younger, I pretty much had a pet sheep and goat, so I just can’t do it, but I found the suede version which isn’t made from either, unlike most Balenciaga bags!

I don’t have an all black bag and I don’t have one made from suede either. I think this Balenciaga Mini City in Black Suede would be one of the most perfect bags ever for me! I haven’t wanted a bag this much since I was on the hunt for the Mulberry Mini Taylor in Deer Brown for over a year! That’s how much I love this one! Unfortunately it comes with a price tag of almost £800 though and even though I have been waiting for it to pop in the sale somewhere… it hasn’t. It sold out on Browns and the only place it’s available is on the Balenciaga website, but I don’t believe they actually have sales, so this is the reason I wanted to make the post. I wanted to share with you this gorgeous bag that will probably forever remain on my wish list unfortunately. Do you love it too? I would love to know! I just recently saw that Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad got this bag and I wont lie, I am a little bit jealous at the moment, ha ha. She’s very lucky! Buy it online here.

    I totally agree with you Lorna! The Balenciaga Mini City bag is on top of my wishlist as well! Such a beautiful and timeless piece. Though I really like suède, it is too fragile for water damage, which is not good in a rainy country like Belgium. So I would go for lambskin, but I completely get why you can’t!

    Too bad these classic bags (in classic colors) never go on sale..,

      That’s a good point about it being water damaged, it’s raining constantly here too, I guess I would have to be so careful with it if I ever was lucky enough to get it! Which colour would you get?

    Mini City’s are adorable: too bad you weren’t in Holland because the exact one had 30% discount (it’s gone now)

    I like the bag a lot!!! If I were to get it I would go for another colour, simply because I have a black bag already..but this one seems perfect!!! =D =D =D I hope you manage to get it one day!
