I kept the Givenchy and acquired a few Celine luggages, which were better on my frame. The Cabas is beautiful and I had a hard time returning it, and if a shorter version of the vertical Cabas came out it would be perfect.
Great decision, I love to own a cabas one day, but hands down pandora and Celine luggages!!
i own the celine cabas , vertical, gusset just like yours...and love it!
i love to wear it with shorts and summer dresses and sandals to ground my outfit in a way...
but with pants/ jeans, i love to be hands free and usually prefer something with a long strap on top of hand held bag.. i usually go with my old and battered YSL rive gauche in cream , Balenciaga first in black and now my newly acquired givenchy nightingale in maxi size!
Kudos on the celine luggage./.. i have that in anthracite.. and can't go wrong with that!
FYI, the cabas does come in an east/ west shape , horizontal !
