New Arrival

There is no news like hearing that a new arrival is on the way. While some parents have to wait 40 weeks for their new baby to arrive, I have had to wait 65 weeks… My baby is late, but it has arrived. First discovering the Balenciaga Arena tote last September before Alexander Wang came on board and banished all wrinkled leather goods to seasons gone by, I knew I had to have it the second I laid eyes upon it.

Although I missed out on the chance for happiness at the time, thanks to the Balenciaga staff at Harvey Nichols I’ve finally managed to be united with my baby. And in a split second I knew this was my baby, and this was meant to be. I guess everything happens when its meant to be…

      That is how I’m justifying the price!

        Work it out at cost per wear, then it always seems like a justified expenditure.
