real deal balenciaga

i finally made one of my fashion wishes come true last month when i purchased my first balenciaga. i've wanted for almost as long as they've been around, which is about ten years now. of course, they don't come cheap and i've only just been able to afford one. you may know that i've been lusting over the new town shape, but when it came down to canadian prices and taxes they were just too expensive. luckily i found a better way to shop for my balenciaga. there is an online re-sale store called real deal collection where you can buy, sell or trade authentic balenciaga bags. they have bags dating back to the early 2000's and they're organized on the site by date added, colour or size. they also have regular sales which is where i found my 2007 pine green balenciaga step. it's in almost perfect condition and i scored it for approx. half of what i would have paid for a town. i'm so happy with the site's service, they shipped fast and the costs were low, they guarantee authenticity and they even have layaway. i would highly recommend them if you are looking for a specific bag shape, colour or if you want to get a gently used bag for less then retail price. it's especially good if you're outside the usa where balenciaga's are more expensive. prices range from $1500.00 for rare older styles and next to brand new bags and as low as a couple hundred for more common/gently used styles. i'd definitely shop from them again and i'd whole hearted they recommend them! ***in the current world of fashion blogging i feel i need to say that this store did not give me anything to say these wonderful things about them, i was honestly just really delighted with the whole shopping experience and wanted to share it with you all :)
