Bal Bonkers!

February 20, 2009

Ever since Ina717 posted “Clutch My Heart“, I began my search for my own Giant Envelope Clutch. They were sold out in Greenbelt and could only be found online. I started viewing them on Ebay and found 2 that I really liked. One was Navy with GSH and the other, Anthracite with GSH. I stayed up till 4 freaking 30 twice to bid on both bags and was outbid at the very last SECOND! All I ended up with were 1. The “nalugi” feeling and 2. A really bad cough and cold due to the late nights.

Then I got the text message from Balenciaga Greenbelt about their new arrivals. I made a quick trip just to “look” and there it was… my Envelope Clutch with GSH in Anthracite! They only received 1 Envelope Clutch and it happened to be in the color I wanted so I was sure it was meant to be mine! Plus, there is something about seeing it and smelling it that makes you want it even more! I took my hubs to the store and after a lengthy discussion (which felt more like a sermon right there in the store), he agreed to get it for me as an early birthday present (I swear I’m running our of early occasions)

At first, I was a bit bothered by the fact that I could have gotten it so much cheaper on Ebay but in the end I was just happy I found it 🙂 The photo does not do it justice. It looks black but its really a nice charcoal gray with blue undertones. Happy Birthday to me!

    Hehe – Happy Birthday Ands! Steve must think we’re (or at least I am) the worst influence 🙂 Never mind, here’s another excuse: re-location to Cebu gift (because it’s such a hassle to move!)

    Gorgeous! Congrats! I’m always showing my husband this website and saying “look at all the other husbands buying their wives these Bal presents :(“
