My Bal passion started in 2007, i made many trials and errors before finding out which styles or colors work for me. So here are the bags i tried and let go after giving them a try.
No regrets though, even if i feel a little nostalgic looking at all the pics of Balenciaga bags that have left my home. 
Starting with the Day style, i tried both GH and RH hardware but didn't feel comfortable carrying it. The bag is too deep, the single handle didn't work well on my shoulder. Too bad because i find this style great looking on other ladies.

Another style i tried and didn't like that much was the Shopper. A  discontinued style with a lot of Balenciaga gorgeous leather. Too bad it didn't work on me because it's roomy, practical and cool. The straight top bothered me who love the slouchiness of Balenciaga bags as they break in. I wanted this style a second chance in black but someone else bought the bag before i did.

Then the Work style. I thought i loved this style and one day, i just looked at my mod pics and didn't like the boxy shape of it on me. So i parted with all the Works i owned.

Believe it or not, the iconic City style didn't work on me neither. I had to try this style since it's one of the Balenciaga's best sellers. But as i am a Part-time style lover, i found the City way too short looking on me, too square. But as always, i do love it on other girls, love when the bag slouches on both sides and in the middle. I loved how it look on me when worn with the shoulder strap.

Almost forgot the Lilac City that i only kept for 2 days before returning it. The color was too sweet for me. Plus, i didn't like the leather of this bag, the distressing was too deep.

Another trial with a black City GGH, found it stunning on a stylish lady and felt i had to have this combo. Finally let it go because i lost my love for GH bags and the city still felt a tad too short on me.
