^ The neo classic bags are gorgeous. I can't say I'm a fan of the patchwork though.

^^you took the words right out of my mouth :p

not a fan of the patchwork at all...
reminds me of something Coach would do...

the neo classic is quite nice though...
but the solid color works best...
the zig zag is just.. ehhh... ok, not great...

oh! nice!

more awful patchwork Balenciagas to run my mouth about!

seeing how those bags finance the whole Balenciaga house, they should really be more careful about the stuff they put out.

nice! the Pralines i see were so flat but yours is so veiny, it looks embossed!

how do you wear your Couriers? i can't decide to either wear it crossbody (pretty much a joke with the short strap) or on my shoulder (where it keeps on slipping, since the leather is so smooth).

:/

Thank you ladies!

street.. I do not have any issue with the strap slipping off my shoulder. I wear it both messenger style (which is nice as the bag wraps around your side) and on my shoulder. I think the key is not to overstuff it..keep it minimal and just enjoy all of that delicious Balenciaga leather.

kimair..the funny thing is when the Praline first arrived a few weeks back, I thought omg, it is way too big..and it just sat for three weeks until last weekend. I sprayed here with Apple Guard and took her out . I ended up loving it SO much, 7 days later, I have the Automne... I found it the perfect bag for commuting on BART!
