To Get Or Not To Get?
If your like me and have loved the Balenciaga Day Bag since 2004 when it emerged on the fragile arms of one Kate Moss then you are too having a dilemma with this bag so randomly named "Layne" by forever21. The dilemma being that there's an issue of price vs authenticity.The price tag for the original if you are lucky enough to score because its extinction since 2005 is in the 1200's. The price tag for the forever21 version is merely $35.00. I most definitely will not shed about $1200 for a bag but I won't want to be walking around with an absurdly faux leather bag, which is a sad excuse for the original.On the other hand I do want to fulfill my desires of this bag. Another deciding factor is having a surge of girls walking around with the same bag, which comes with the territory for purchasing at forever21.Do I let it go or bite the bullet? I guess we will see.
