...a new handbag

There's nothing like a new handbag! The Balenciaga motorcyle bag seems to have been around forever, (in 'It' bag years), for purse afficionados like me. Like the Hermes Kelly and Birkins of past generations, this is THE bag that goes with almost everything, that you and your daughters will fight over, and you'll be proud to carry for years to come.

If money were no object, I'd fly to Paris and grab this blue royal Giant City bag. What a great addition this would be to anyone's wardrobe. Picture yourself dressed in the classic 'French girl' style -- navy/white striped bateau top, skinny dark crop jeans, ballet flats, your hair in a loose chignon, and a Balenciaga on your arm. Chic simple!
