My White Balenciaga City Bag…

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to organize and clean out my closet.  A task that has been on my resolution list for the past three years, but never seems to get completed.  Last week I began the arduous process of deciding what to keep and what to release.  Really, I think I need to get rid of at least half of what I have, but that’s another blog…  My project didn’t last more than 10 minutes before I got sidetracked and decided to give a hello to my white Balenciaga bag, protected in its original duster bag within the Barneys box from where it was purchased.  I got the bag several years ago and loved it from the moment I saw it.  In fact, it was love at first sight.  I only used it a couple of times right after I got it, because anything and everything(especially my dark denim jeans!) dyed with color that came in contact with the bag left a stain.  
Well, I packed that bag up and sent it to my closet only to be taken out again for “occasional, special” use.  Unfortunately, I kind of forgot about it until last week.  I opened the box, removed it from its protective cloth bag to find that my beautiful, winter white Balenciaga is now a soft, pale yellow!!!!  I guess in hindsight it seems pretty obvious that the leather could or would discolor, but still!  Ughhh!  The upside is that the color is at least uniform and now I’m using the bag whenever I want without a care in the world…
