Monday Greys

Wearing lots of shades of black and grey today to reflect my mood about having to go into work and clear the snow off my car (again!)

iro bianca sweater (similar here and here) || st. john evening liquid satin pants (similar here [cheap], here [cheap], here and here) || pour la victoire irina pumps (similar here and here [on super clearance!]) || balenciaga city chevre RH bag (newer version) || essie "power clutch" nails (dark steel grey creme)

my photographer (mom) is getting into taking awkward pics now

So now it's been almost a year with my black Balenciaga city and I have to say I still love it as much as I did when I bought it.  The leather is beautiful and soft and thick while maintaining its appearance and shape over time, the hardware is enough to make it a little edgy but not enough to be over the top, and the size is perfect for going to work when I'm not carrying a bunch of shit or going out or to dinner when I am.  I even used it once for a B'nai Mitzvah and I didn't feel strange at all with such a big bag because it is beautiful and classic.  I am a huge fan of it, and I typically don't stay a big fan of things for too long, and I hope there will be more bags by them in my future.  I love every single one that I own and have been blown away by the quality compared to other leather bags I've owned from Marc by Marc Jacobs and similarly priced but canvas bags by Louis Vuitton and the like.  I really highly recommend this bag if you're ever in the market for a new one!
