So I gradually let my babies go, with sad and mixed feelings, when I started my affair with Celine. And now I only have few pieces of Balenciaga bags left in my wardrobe and I am good. I am a Bal content now.

I have started looking at Balenciaga website and learning the next season's collection. The words like Rose Thulian, Cassis, Mangue, Cumin, Jacynthe, Poker Fonce, Gris Tarmac, Kraft, Crocus and Lagon start haunting me.... Oh God, I do hope that I only have this Bal attack only for this week.... H.E.L.P.

I felt that it was like a month a go that I was busy hunting down the best jet black that Balenciaga ever had. And for me, black bags from 2009 and 2010 collection had the best black ever....
