Balenciaga Giant Weekender Tote Bag

While I was in the maternity ward at the hospital recovering from my c-section, I was comforted by all the well wishes I received from family, friends and hospital staff. What surprised me most, though, were the amount of compliments I got about my bag. It shouldn't have been too much of a shock especially since the bag in question was the Balenciaga Giant Hobo. This supple leather bag rarely leaves my side and even made an appearance at my baby shower (more compliments ensued there as well). While I lay in my hospital bed basking in the glow of motherhood and fabulous taste in handbags, I realized I craved a chicer "weekend" tote than the one I had with me at the moment. What better companion than the Giant Weekender Tote Bag could I and my Giant Hobo ask for?

Measuring a roomy 19.3 x 15 x 7.1, the 'Giant Weekender' sports giant gold or silver-tone hardware and features dual stitched top handles, zip top closure, front zip pocket, removable leather framed hand mirror and fabric-lined interior with zip pocket. The Giant Weekender is available in a host of beautiful colors which Balenciaga is known for. I like the sand-like sahara which perfectly matches my Giant Hobo bag as well as most of my wardrobe.

The most exciting news for online shoppers who love Balenciaga is the fact that you can now purchase B-bags straight from Balenciaga without worrying about authenticity issues. So hop to it and add the Balenciaga Giant Weekender Tote Bag to your collection. You'll be ready to travel in style, even if it's just for a stay at the hospital ;-)
