I asked Jumpei from Aloharag why some bags showed as available on the site when he told me they were sold out and he said they haven't been keeping up with the Balenciaga page like they should. So I wouldn't rely on what the site says... email them to ask.

I think it's probably because sky Blue is more popular in Medium City Classique than it is the small

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..........!?
NO there is only one type of medium. Medium City Classique is what Sienna has. The Small classique is the small. There is no other medium !!

Eleria..I know which one you mean. IT's like a pebbled leather. I heard that was one of the first ones to come out apparently and they came out in that pebbled thicker leather before all this distressed leather came out. iT's lovely !!!

The confusion might be because there are 2 sizes in between the small (classique) and the large (voyage bag).

There is the City Classique, which is the traditional medium that everyone thinks about when they think medium (this is the size Sienna Miller has), and then there is the Office Bag, which is larger than the City Classique, but smaller than the Voyage. Confusing?! Sorry!

I am becoming penniless from spending on Balenciagas!!

I want a city classique in black but after buying two pre-spring bags I am pretty much out of cash.
Now I have put myself on the waitlist for some of the spring colours and I know I have to get them because the exact colour will not be repeated again.

I wonder when I ever will be able to own my black classique.

Don't worry about that... black classique will always be around.

i don't know how much the clutches cost, but when i was at the NYC Balenciaga boutique the other day, they had the clutch in all different colors (teal blue, indigo, black, etc.) it doesn't seem like it will be impossible to get.

thanx for the tip InStyle. what size were the ones you saw? cuz i know they range in size from a pretty decent-sized one to the smaller one to hte almost coin-purse size one, whihc might in fact be a coin purse. i think i would get it either in real or the new turquoise coming out for s/s 2005

The coin purses are around $300 and the larger ones are about $500.

Should I get a black Twiggy or a teal Twiggy? I need a new black purse but I love the colorful Balenciagas...

FWIW, I would recommend the teal. It's colourful and goes with practically every colour.
Black would really look more fetching in a classique.

FYI, I can use my Twiggy as a shoulder bag...so it's really a good shape to get!
