Oh yes, you read that right! 🙂 This is another Balenciaga revelation. 🙂 This is actually a long overdue post. Suuuper long overdue!!! Remember my post early this year about Balenciaga going on sale at Beyond the Rack (see this link)? I was able to purchase an item at that sale. 🙂 I was one of the lucky Beyond the Rack members who was able to get in the site immediately. I even saw most of the bags not yet sold at the time I purchased my item. If I only knew some of my friends wanted to buy Balenciaga bags, I should have just kept on adding stuff in my cart for them. For those who aren’t aware, the moment sample sale websites put up a sale on really lush-cious brands, items do not even last for a minute! In just seconds, most items (if not all), are already on hold or sold! Yes, that fast!!! Anyway, I won’t keep you guys any longer. Here it is…


Presenting, my new black Balenciaga Giant Money in gold hardware


I was really planning to get a red one to match my Giant City in Pomegranate, but I ended up buying a safe color to easily match it with whatever bag I use. I chose the gold hardware (same as my bag) since I just love how the color of the leather stands out with gold hardware compared to the silver hardware. I find it more classy too, don’t you think? 🙂

I have been searching for a nice long wallet for the longest time, until I was able trim down my choices to two- Chanel or Balenciaga. Well, I’m so in love with Kelly, Dogon and Bearn wallets of Hermes but heck, with that kind of price tag?!?! No way! I’d rather get a bag. LOL! Maybe, if I have completed all my must-have bags, I can move on to wallets. Hehe! Anyway, I ended up getting a Balenciaga since, as I said earlier, it was put on sale at Beyond the Rack. It was a sign!!! LOL! Balenciaga Giant Money is currently priced at $555. I got mine for $429, but paid a little less since I used up some of my shopping credits at Beyond the Rack (thanks to you, my readers)! 🙂 See, it really pays to be a member in this kind of sites! You get a chance to purchase designer labels on sale, plus earn shopping credits once your referrals purchase their first item. 🙂 If you wanna snag various designer items on sale, you can be a member by using my invites. Just click on the logos Gilt Groupe, Hautelook and Beyond the Rack located at my right sidebar (just below Catch a Sale!) and sign up. These sample sale websites feature different brands everyday, meaning different sale items every single day! 🙂 Hehe! Anyway, sorry I digress. I just wanna share how I was able to snag my new Balenciaga Giant Money at a lower price. 🙂 Here are more pictures and details of the wallet.


Balenciaga Giant Money is a long wallet (7.5″ x 3.9″ x 0.8″) made of soft vintage crafted lambskin with flap top, front zip pocket and snap closure. I love everything in it. I love the style. It’s so Balenciaga- the leather and the gold metal hardware. It’s also very spacious. It has an interior gusseted compartment with two bill pockets and four credit card slots on each side, plus one zip coin pocket.


When it arrived months ago, I had second thoughts of using it though. I thought of selling it ‘coz I suddenly realized I should have just bought a gadget or just added money to get a bag. Well, I hid it for months (which explains the super late post) thinking I could forget about it. Apparently, NAH! I can’t! I just can’t let go of my new darling… 🙂
