Balenciaga Polo Tote in Purple!
For the past couple of days I’ve been keeping an eye out for purple hued handbags ever since I learned how popular the shade is going to be this coming fall. I keep on asking myself whether a bag with such a rich color as purple would last me all year long or just for the season. I also wonder if spending a couple of hundred or so to satisfy my purple crave is the way to go, or if splurging on a premium designer name is totally necessary for such a great colored bag. Who knows! But I do know that the infamous Italian name Balenciaga carries this great violet bag.
Right now over at BlueFly, Balenciaga’s “Polo” Tote (in purple) is marked down 20% from $1310 to $1048. Now there’s one great “splurge” find. As Balenciaga is known for its amazing distressed or buttery-soft leather, this bag is no exception. Double chained straps and an open top for easy access make the “Polo” tote a great everyday bag. The limited amount of silver-toned hardware found throughout the tote compliments the bags “colour” perfectly. This Balenciaga is one of the many examples of purple handbags I would definitely splurge on, and I also know that this beauty won’t sit for long on the sales rack!
