Ever since Celine has been taken over by Phoebe Philo, I have started to buy (and sell) the bags like mad.. All in hope to find the perfect few that will be staples for me...

Here's the list of bags that have come... And are now gone:

Mini:

Fluo Pink Mini
Fluo Orange Mini
(Too bright for bag of that size)

Orange pebb mini
Camel pebb mini
Camel smooth mini
Red lipstick smooth mini
(Too slouchy for me)

Slate blue mini
(Fear of dirt on the light cream handles)

Micro:

Red lipstick micro pebb
(Gets Color transfer too easily)

Nanos:

Fluo Pink Nano
Cobalt smooth Nano
(Overspent)

Others:

Navy Trio
Black Box
Black Clasp bag
Vis Clutch
(All too small)

Just out of curiosity, why did you decide not to keep a mini in your permanent collection?

WOW! You have had quite a few amazing bags come through! I have really wanted the hot pink Mini and have wondered if it might be too much brightness in a bigger bag. Interesting that you felt it was. Seems it's pretty much impossible for me to find at this point unless I am willing to pay a premium...which I'm not. Now I'm thinking about getting the Hibiscus Box. I've had 3 of them that i returned...black, camel and this past season's red. I think I'm over the fact that it scratches easily. I figure I need to just go ahead a bite the bullet because they continue to go up in price. With all that said, maybe I need to get a neutral color? I hate these decisions! Congrats on your keepers!~ :smile:

After a few months of usage, the bag starts to lose it's shape and I like the slouchy look only in Bal bags; not a structured bag like Luggage :sad:
It's just a personal preferance

Is this a new style? I don't remember seeing it. Looking forward for the better view of the whole bag & the rest of course.
Hi there.. It's from S/S or F/W 2011 I believe coz I got it from SG Celine boutique sale in Dec 2011.

Gonna start posting all the pics tonight :smile:
