When you write about something for a living, it’s easy to look at it and think, “Will people like this?” instead of, “Do I like this?” How a particular design plays to the market at large and to our readers is always the first thing on my mind when I see a handbag; my personal opinion whether or not I’d carry it in my leisure time is way down the list of my concerns.
We spend the majority of our time hear talking about handbags, but what goes in them is just as important, and thankfully, some designers put as much care into the design of their wallets and small leather goods as they do into their big-name bags.
Remember when you were freshly 18 and it felt like you could finally go out and do anything? Remember how liberating that felt? Except you couldn’t actually do ANYTHING, because you weren’t a trust fund baby (though some of you maybe were, but just go with me here), so you had to satisfy your need for adventure by smoking a legal cigarette or maybe registering to vote?
Celebs were eternally “out and about” last week, and precious few seemed to have any real agenda. Even more shocking: very few had anything to promote. This is pretty unusual, and the lack of fervent PR activity makes me feel kind of useless, to be honest.
Slowly but surely, Céline has started putting more information about its seasonal handbag on its website. Every season, the brand gives shoppers a few more bags, a few more prices, a few more colors and leathers—it’s a good time to be a shopper in search of the perfect Céline.
Celebs try to get away with some strange trends in the summer. Thigh-high suede boots, for example, are extremely popular with a certain set. This week overalls are making a mild comeback, though honestly I feel like some celeb or another gets the nifty idea to wear overalls in public every six months or so.
Exciting new summer handbag trends are emerging this week, and celebs’ designer selections are all over the place (in a good way). Also, as you’ve obviously gathered, Beyoncé makes an appearance, as well as several more of our favorite supermodels and/or television personalities, and they have all chosen to reward us for our patience and admiration with some extremely colorful wardrobe and hair choices.
The Céline Luggage Tote might not quite inspire the six-month waiting lists it did circa 2011, but the bag still appeals to a ton of women and sells briskly. Since its debut, Céline has always played the details of the bag’s available sizes and pricing close to the vest, and although we’ve been able to create and update a guide to getting the Luggage Tote you want, official word from Céline has remained very scant.
If you’re thinking of treating yourself to a new Céline bag, we have to warn you: this post may lead to impulse spending. We don’t mean to be instigators, but purchasing a brand new bag instantly lifts your mood and spirits (no seriously, science says so), and our PurseForum members have the new bags to prove it.
Celebs can cycle through designer handbags at a break-neck speed, so when certain celebs keep carrying the same bags for weeks or even months, we notice. Case in point: Chrissy Teigen is currently only carrying The Row Classic 5 Tote, though she mixes it up by carrying the same style in a variety of sizes and colorways.
