Celine

Wednesday, July 18, 2012


Finally, the long wait is over. 

I've had my eye on the Celine mini luggage for more than a year and I kept on having these mini self-debates on whether I should get it or not. Somehow, the hefty price tag attached to the bag kept pushing me back. But this year, after turning (dirty) thirty, I felt that it was the right time to satiate my craving and reward myself with something 'grander' than what I would normally indulge myself with. My philosophy when it comes to choosing 'designer' bags (gah, i hate using this term!) is simple: I don't like taking chances...hence I go with simple structures and safe (and sometimes boring) neutral colors such as dark blues, browns and black. I was originally planning on getting a navy blue mini luggage and was a strand of hair close to wrapping my hands around it but for some unexplainable reason though, a lot of complications came along with it. In the end, I had to settle with the black version instead. I'm not complaining though. Secretly, my heart was pining for black. While some of the other bubbly and Barbie mini luggage colors (such as citron, fluoro pink, red, cobalt blue and tri-colors) are really interesting, you can't go wrong with black. You can get more mileage out of it as it can go with any look -- whether it be stark or as colorful as the rainbow. And knowing that I've purchased something quite pricey, I have to milk it for all of its worth. So yes, black may be boring, especially for a mini luggage, but to me it's such a beauty.

P.S. Thanks to my new-found friend, Charlene, for hooking me up with this purchase!

  1. Oh my....... Ang ganda!!! Naiinggit ako but at the same time I'm happy for you!!! I'm not a "bag" person but lately parang i've been thinking about saving up for a (good quality) designer bag. Something that will be worth the money and yung tatagal talaga and yun pwede sa lahat ng outfit (like your new Celine bag!). Thanks to you actually, naimpluensyahan mo ako everytime you ask my opinion about which bag to get hahahaha!!! I'm sick of everyone wanting a louis vuitton and I dont see myself owning one (unless may magregalo haha) so Celine is my first choice :D PM me the price nga para I know how many months or years Ill have to starve myself before I can buy it.. Hahaha!!!

  9. Oh, yay for finally getting it! The design of the bag is absolutely lovely and you're definitely right about the colour black for items– I think the same goes for other things like shoes too as well as bags, for instance. Hope you enjoy your new purchase! xx

    1. Hi, dear. There's also a Medium and Large. Large is the biggest. Mini is the perfect size for me though but if you want it slightly bigger, go for the Medium. The Large is a bit OA na sa laki. Haha.
