I just placed an order with Neiman Marcus for a Balenciaga Classic City Bag in Rose Blush with Rose Gold Hardware (pictures of front and back posted below).
Total amount including tax came to $1,703.16 (retail was $1,545.00) and FREE Shipping. Hopefully I'll get it in a few days.
I figured since I have at least 2 Balenciagas on it's way and possibly a 3rd one from Vanco as well as the one I got from Maja I needed to learn a little more about these bags so I can spot a good or bad replica. The one I got from Neiman's is closes to the one I got from Maja. It's not the same bag though because the one from Maja has silver hardware and the one from Neiman's has rose gold hardware.
I was unable to find the exact style so it was the closest I could find. I'm not sure what this means. It could be that that particular style is simply out of stock.
In any case it would be interesting to see how well the replicas compare to the Authentic and also how the replicas compare to each other since they are all from different price points. The one from Maja was only $90 including shipping. I got 2 from Joy, one for $129 and another for $233. I am also getting one from Vanco that is $135. I can't wait to see how they compare to each other and to the authentic :).
