lovely bag. And nice pictorial. Congratulations on a great bag.
Thank you so much! It truly is a great bag, very sophisticated, user friendly, and all in a classic, yet slightly edgy shape. Plus, while I generally love soft supple falling over leather, I am glad this is on the saffiano stuctured side! It just goes very well with the bag.
I am loving my Selma! I debuted it last week at work, and one of my coworkers said (a lates 40s male): "Is that a purse or a laptop bag (I had my computer in it). That looks really cool!"
LOL, it was pretty funny, since your average straight male never notices purses.
I got lots od compliments from passerby while I was walking around on my errands. A lot around "that is such an unusual shape, and very elegant looking."
I don't see many Celine bags out in the Bay Area. Especially not in my city. Lots of messenger bags, swingpack style crossbodies, and hobos. Oh and you know the hippie-esque fabric bags made of handmade textiles from Asia or Africa. I have recently seen a couple in SF.
I feel like the Selma is pretty well-priced, very understated and sophisticated. And to top it off, it is really light on it is own!
I am planning a bag clean out, because I have seriously been looking for the perfect black bag for years and I have quite a few pretenders that I am no longer using.
