Sooo, as many of you know, I went thru this whole thing with Kirna Zabete with the Celine Mini in Fluo Pink (which I will update on that thread right after this) but long story short, my full prepayment for the bag back in Oct/Nov ended up with me not having a Celine Mini in Fluo Pink since they miscalculated their order somehow and just informed me yesterday afternoon that I would be getting a refund but no bag.

And now, ofcourse the Celine price increase just happened so the Mini I prepaid for at $2000 usd is now $2400 usd AND not to mention, basically impossible to find since they sold out before they even hit sales floors and unless one gets returned or a miracle batch gets sent from Celine again...eBay is the only option (where they're selling for close to $3000 usd).



Thankfully, I had a Celine Fluo Pink Nano already rung up at Neiman Marcus and being held for me there--my SA at NM had gotten it in a couple weeks back but I wasnt 100% I would keep both a nano AND a mini in Fluo Pink--good thing I had her ring it up though cos I was certain I would have my Mini from Kirna Zabete.


So now...I am wondering, should I keep trying to hunt down the Mini in Fluo Pink (I feel like theres a 50% chance I'll find it thanks to all the wonderful Celine tpfers whom have messaged me and given me heads up on places/SAs to try for it...so far no luck yet)?

OR

Should I just be happy with the Nano in Fluo Pink and leave it at that?

I know some of you said the Fluo Pink is so electric and neon of a color and that in a Mini it was overwhelming, that's not such a concern for me since I LOVE bright/electric colors and I LOVE huge bags.

The only thing is I am worried that the Mini in Fluo Pink may just remind me of the whole drama with Kirna Zabete (subconsciously)...not sure if it would but if it did, it wouldnt be so great, right? LOL

And I've been into the designer bags, shoes, rtw for awhile now, I'm not an expert or veteran at it by any means, but I have also learned that in all the years I've gone thru the "must haves" and there have been very very very few "must have" items I missed out on and was never able to find via consignment shops or eBay. And if I DID love it loads, I'd also have paid the premium prices for it on the secondary market. What I mean is, maybe the Nano in Fluo Pink is great enough cos there may be other bags/colors I'll find later in that color or to replace the missing spot for the Mini?



Would love everyones's thoughts and comments on this....

(BTW, I've never seen/touched the Mini bag in any color cos they're always sold out, and I've also never seen the fluo pink color in person in any Celine piece)...

Thanks!!!!

I love the nano! I think with that much color the pink is better on that size. My guess is that the fluo pink though very "hot" now is probably going to be available via reseller/consignment/ebay etc later on. It is a trendier color and that way if you get over the trend, you wont have that larger bag and if you are still into the color later on, I'm sure you will find it on sale.

Agreed. It sounds like you really like the fluo pink. Why not take the nano for now, and if a mini pops up in the future you can always sell your nano. I also think nano in fluo pink looks better than a mini.

glad you are getting the nano! I think the fluo pink would look so cute in the nano size. I personally think it would look better in a smaller bag. who knows, maybe you'll come to love it in the end, and your search for this color would be over! can't wait to see your reveal!

I say go with the nano. At least you will be able to see the color on you, etc.

If you still want the mini, you can always get it when it pops up. I am sure it will. I was freaking about my Coquelicot and now I see it everywhere.
