While checking my email late one Saturday afternoon, I saw that BTR was having a Celine sale. I wasn't expecting anything to be available since it was already late in the day but there was a black mini (for a great price) on reserve instead of being sold out! I left the page open so I could check to see if it would become available later and after cleaning the house, having dinner, and watching a movie at the theatre, IT FINALLY DID! I checked out as fast as I could and waited impatiently for my bag to arrive. When I pulled it out of the dustbag, I immediately understood why so many people love it. It felt incredibly well made inside and out and looked fantastic. I had it authenticated as soon as I got home (and again just recently - thanks again to everyone who helped me) and now that I'm confident about my purchase, I would like to finally share my first Celine... A black Palmeleto mini! I was expecting to receive a regular mini based on the price but when I looked more closely at the details of the bag and style number, I started to wonder if I received the wrong tags or the Palmeleto version. I ended up ordering a regular mini (which became available just a few days ago) to compare and my suspiscions were confirmed. My Black mini from BTR is made of Palmeleto leather! Regular on left, Palmeleto on right The leather is smoother, feels thicker/more structured and has a beautiful sheen. I am not sure how durable it is since I haven't actually used it but the regular one is already showing some scratches (it may have just been handled more though). Both are beautiful but I really lucked out. The Palmeleto is AMAZING.
