arena is really the "shopper" and sometimes called the "retro" bag.
it is the same size as the medium, but now it's discontinued. they
no longer make it. i really liked it... oh well.

does anyone know if the small calssique comes with a long strap? because on the old everyhting balenciaga thread someone said that they don't but in the pics on pg 1 of this thread the small classique appears to have a strap

Agreed... I would never put heavy books or even a pen... I am too paranoid. Every night, I put them nicely on the dust cover on top of my closet. I think medium size is perfect fits all the things I need plus diapers, hand toys for baby

I have a small classique and it comes with a strap. I got mine about a week ago.
If you carry the bag on its strap, the classique hits about slightly below waist level (but I think this is subject to your own body height and proportions).

Also, help me out here which color is better for the medium in Sienna's bag size, pistachio, pale blue or sky blue, seafoam green or white..........!?
The pistachio and the seafoam green are last season's colours.
You can only try your luck on ebay if you want to get them
Only the sky blue is still available while white is always a classic.

But if the colours were not seasonal at all, I would definitely go for seafoam green.
The pistachio would be gorgeous in a Twiggy~!

sigh of relief... thank you. i was really getting worried that they don't have the strap. i like the look of the strap and the way it makes the bag more versatile and its comfortable if you're carrying a lot of stuff. i did think that only the mediums have the strap, not the smalls, this is great news though as i am about to receive my sky blue classique (sm.) thank you chiangsi.

Hey no problem at all NY City Girl! Enjoy your bag!

I have another question about the sky blue - it appears as a "blue jean" shade in the pictures on Aloharag.
But in the pictures provided by the Balenciaga boutique, or as seen in the previous thread, the sky-blue was more of a pale blue.

Can someone please help clear this confusion for me?

i think the blue jean is the french name for sky blue, or so i read on the old thread. sky blue is light blue or i guess you could call it baby blue. its the one they have on aloharag right now.
