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.
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.
Like most brands, Céline usually distributes photos and information about its upcoming collections about six months in advance, and thanks to the wonders of social media, that information then becomes widely available public knowledge almost immediately.
Buying a pre-owned bag can be daunting. I know firsthand how exciting the hunt can be, and then how nerve-wracking it can be to actually make the purchase. We already gave you a comprehensive guide on how to make a wise pre-owned bag purchase, and even after you’ve done your research and feel good about a bag’s authenticity, we still recommend getting your bag authenticated on our PurseFourm.
A very funny friend of mine once referred to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as a “self-esteem serial killer,” and although I’ve never been the type to proactively hold myself to the beauty standards of those who are beautiful for a living, I have to admit that she kind of had a point.
Our What Fits category is a reader favorite, and I promise we’ll be sharing more bags and what you can expect to fit inside them in the near future. (If you have requests on bags you want to see included, let me know in the comments below.) Knowing the interior capacity of a bag is especially important for smaller styles; what looks like it can fit a continental wallet in a stock image may only be able to handle a card case in real life.
