a very early birthday reveal  

As promised, here is my earliest birthday pressie this year!

What's in the little white box?

And what's in the little dustbag?

Tadah! My very first Balenciaga wallet! <3

This is the newest Balenciaga wallet style - the Classic in Murier (Mulberry) RH!

With ten card slots and four additional long slots for various needs.

An elongated bill-fold compartment. Apparently takes up to the size of SG$100 bills with ease but nothing bigger than that.

Two ample-sized coin compartments! Love this... I hoard receipts in my coin compartments.

Fits great in my tiny hands. I have been looking forward to this new wallet style from Balenciaga because the standard Money wallet is just too big for me. And I find that long wallets tend to wear faster on the corners. This one is perfect. Not only is it more compact, it even has rounded corners!

One last eye candy shot to hopefully show the true colour of Murier. The iPhone is not so good at capturing colours accurately.

I'm so glad I waited instead of settling for a Money or even an older Mini Compagnon! Good things come to those who wait. :)

You have simply stunning taste!!

And what wonderful design features.

Friends and I were just talking last night about not settling when buying things. I know I did this often when I was younger, but I really have trouble doing it these days.

Of course the apartment shopping will be different - I know I will have to compromise on something, but otherwise I am really trying to stick to my guns on quality and features and fit.

Thank you, Missy Petit Bout! <3

I am definitely more discerning these days too. To my own amazement. LOL!

Still keeping my fingers crossed for your apartment-shopping! x o x o

JVdrag0nette on November 15th, 2010 05:13 am (UTC)
Thanks Han! :D I can't wait to use it... But I will wait. I want to finish collecting all my pieces before I switch out my current set of small leather goods. Yeh... I'm a bit odd like that! :D
equinox_han on November 15th, 2010 10:56 am (UTC)
lol. that's cool. i'm pretty much all for instant gratification. once i get it, i can't wait to use it. abit of an impulse shopper too. :) really liking your growing balenciaga collection. i love the bright colours but somehow i always end up buying bags in blacks and browns...and have recently ventured into greys.

keep them coming!!
equinox_han on November 15th, 2010 10:58 am (UTC)
Ps, just added you to my friends list, just so i can ogle at your goodies :) !
JVdrag0nette on November 15th, 2010 11:08 am (UTC)
Thanks for the add! Adding you back. :)
JVdrag0nette on November 15th, 2010 11:08 am (UTC)
I'm glad you're enjoying this too! :) I have been slack... A few little things have been collected over the past months but yet to be revealed! I will get to them soon!

I grew up only carrying black bags and suddenly, I was struck by a rainbow. LOL!

Hi there! I found your post via TPF, and I was wondering what the price is for the Classique wallet? I think I prefer this style to the Money, but there doesn't seem to be too much information on this newer style.
JVdrag0nette on April 12th, 2011 09:36 am (UTC)
Hi there! It was about SGD695 if I remember correctly! :)

Thanks so much for the reply!
JVdrag0nette on April 13th, 2011 05:20 pm (UTC)
You're most welcome! :)
