Early Birthday Gifts!

 As I mentioned in the previous post, I got a new handbag and some of you guessed correctly! A Black Balenciaga City with regular hardware. It wasn’t all 100% of a birthday gift, but half of it was me selling lots of stuff  on eBay that I didn’t want or wear anymore. I also got the handbag on eBay from reputable seller and saved some $$ that way. I’m excited because I actually do not have a black large handbag!
As far as the shoes, I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of comfortable black wedges/platforms and after spotting these and trying them on (so comfortable) I needed to get them! They’re from LF Stores and a Limited Edition between Jefferey Campbell and LF.

  • fshnonmymind

    Happy Early Birthday to you!!! That's such a wonderful bday present to yourself. I can see you rocking that all the time (your green one might be jealous in the near future).

  • ellevictoire

    happy birthday! oh and that bag is absolutely perfect. could you tell me which buyer you got it from? I'm quite doubtful regarding sellers on ebay usualy :/

  • dani@callitbeauty


    the black balenciaga is my goal :p.

    do you mind sharing which seller you bought this off from?


  • Catita

    those JC are a beuty!!! happy birthday!

  • BrooklynBlonde

    Thank you all for your nice comments!

    I got it from the seller "shopinforbes" but I ALWAYS get everything authenticated on The Purse Forum. They're so helpful on there and always want to see closeups of the details which give away whether the bag is authentic or not (on a Balenciaga it's things like the bale, rivets and the zippers.. Hope this helps!

  • Miss*Kimmy

    Booties are too cute!!! Love the laces.
