Balenciaga Spring Summer 2009 Silver Giant Hardware (SGH) Automne Envelope Clutch
(Reveal from 'Incoming Happy Mail From NY Part 3')

This is a long overdue reveal...but nonetheless..here goes:-)

Recently, I have been lusting a clutch. I want something that carries minimum but yet still be able to hold a decent amount without bulging my pockets. So a clutch is the perfect solution, being not cumbersome and yet is there to keep all the basic necessities (Wallet, mobile phone, ipod etc).

After my post about Balenciaga clutches, I finally made up my mind to get the Balenciaga Silver Giant Hardware (SGH) Automne Envelope Clutch. Despite the uncertainty about the size fitting a guy, I took another chance as I like the design of an envelope clutch better than the flat ones. It's more elegant and perfect for evenings. And Automne colour has been high on my want list of Balenciaga colours this season. Bagaholicboy's automne weekender and Recoloured2's automne courier were truly gorgeous. Upon seeing their pics, I knew I had to buy something in automne. Mixed with silver giant hardware, the tan brown colour can transcend casual to formal, which makes it very versatile.

Another email to Erica from HG bags....and the parcel came 4 days later:-) Perfect surprise upon returning home from my Bangkok weekend break:-) I am surprised and relieved the clutch is substantial enough in size and works on a slim guy like me. I am definitely carrying this clutch when attending glamourous events like fancy dinners or fashion shows. Thanks again Erica for another great deal! 3rd Balenciaga in a row within a 2 week interval:-) This is 'frighteningly' addictive!

Retail price: US $495 (+US$35 for express shipping) (SGD $783.88). Where to buy: HG Bags
