I just saw the most unusual shade of milky, pale green on the most elegant, understated bag by Celine! It's beautiful & I can't stop thinking about it! The Classic Box is such a simple, timeless piece, so lady-like & functional at the same time. I love it! But I just don't think the price is worth it with the increase :shocked: Bummed!

It's the almond colour, again! We've been chatting about this a lot, here in the forum!

It is so expensive, that's why I've been sweating my color choice too.

It really is crazy...3800...I will put this out there...two months ago, I got my beige medium box from bergdorf goodman at a presale for $2000! (40%off).... there was NO WAY I was passing that up, and with it being such a versatile color. meanwhile, I love this color...love love love it, yet how can I justify paying almost twice as much for a little color change????

It is pricey but still not as bad as the Hermes Constance.....which is the bag I have wanted for so long but decided $9 -$10 grand was highway robbery. When I saw the Celine Box I decided it was the one! I'd love to get one more to go with my Hibiscus before the price goes UPPPPPP again!

I think you would be nuts to pay more for a change in a similar color. This almond is beautiful but so is your beige, and they essentially serve the same purpose colorwise...... a soft light colored lady like bag. They even go with the same wardrobe colors. You should never let it go!! But...if you want to sell this one to fund a darker color that you would use more often then I think that makes a bit of sense. Hopefully you could even make a bit of profit since you got it at such a great price....which brings me to this question..... How the heck did you score that!!!!!lol

You are so lucky :smile: I've been under the impression (with help from the SA's) that this style never ever goes on sale. If there's even the slightest hope of grabbing one on sale I will wait patiently. I've seen the same bags sit there for more than 2 seasons at my local stores (we live in the same area) with no markdown on the horizon. The poor bags just get more scratched up from being on display.

I owe this find to a TPFr, I can't remember who now, but someone had seen it on presale and passed it up, but announced it on here. I thought there was no way in a million years it would still be available, but it was. My impression is that they DONT ever go on sale. I can tell you this was in perfect shape, mild scratches as expected, so I have no idea why it went on sale...another TPFr found a camel color at her local TJMAXX! So, it is possible few and far between. I will be on the look out for you!
