Have you fought to get a Balenciaga bag? We have. Twice. But if you can't duke it out at Barneys or compulsively click through eBay, there's another way to score the French status symbol:
Go to the perfume counter at Neiman Marcus. This month, they've got an exclusive set that includes Balenciaga perfume and body lotion, plus a small wallet in the style of their famous Moto Bags.
The whole thing is $130 - way cheaper than a Balenciaga accessory on its own... even on eBay. Plus, bonus - no punches necessary.
