Celine Mini Luggage Tote and Style Inspirations

My lust bag for the past year has been the Celine Mini Luggage Tote; almost impossible to find I recently found one at Nordstrom’s (the tricolor Spring ’12) and also found out Bergdorf Goodman’s has a short list for a solid version.  You would be surprised to know that my hubby is not a big fan of designer goods or their prices (most of my expensive items I purchased pre hubby), but he wanted to treat me to something nice!  I am so excited and sooo…. lovely readers, would love to know your opinion of which one I should get!

1) Beige, Burgundy trim with Salmon color suede, this bag is beautiful and much nicer in person.  I like that this bag transitions into fall well and different from all the ones out there

2) Red is my favorite color – a standpoint piece; actually veering towards this gorgeous red piece.

3) Pretty neutral gray, will be completely practical and a beautiful color, but is this too boring?

Which do you prefer?  Hopefully be styling one of these in the next month or so :)

Like everyone now a days, Pinterest has taken over my free time (find me here); from DIY’s to style inspirations – these images are some of my fav stylish looks:

I love that these inspire my outfits and hit all the trends for spring.

    I was going to say Red initially, but since this has become the IT bag of the blogosphere, I am going to go with the Tri-color one for all the reasons you stated and because it will stand out against the see of red and beige ones out in fashion blog land. Plus I think it will go with so much more because of the different colors. Whatever you choose, I know you will cherish it and love it!

    I'm torn between the tri-colour and the bold red. I love the tri-colour because I love the contrast of the colours – but I also love the red because I think it would stand the test of the time as a nice bold accessory. Whichever you get will be a gorgeous addition to your collection though!

    The tricolour should be duo-color! I don't like the salmon trimming. I would go with the red.

    You will love owning a Celine! The neutral gray is a safe everyday choice, but the red is a show stopper…definitely the red!

    All 3 definitely seem SO YOU!and I definitely zoned in on the RED first because it is your fave, and you wear it so well!But I could also see you rockin the other 2 colors. I personally would go for the grey, or multicolor because I'll probably get more wear out of it. And I think that although the grey is neutral and may seem 'boring', you out of all people could most definitely style your look, dress it up, and really make it pop!AAH SO EXCITED for you!<3Amandafeast.fashion.faves

    The red is so very you. Just don't use it as your diaper bag. :)

    Lucky!! I've been wanting that purse, too, even though I'm not much of a purse person. Too bad we don't have a store that carries them down here. I would have to drive to a bigger city, like Dallas or Houston. I pick the 2nd and the 3rd. I really like the 3rd, but that's only because I'm on a neutral kick. I think the second one would be a great pop of color for any look. Okay, nevermind, I'm not much of a help, am I? Hahaha! I pick #2. :)

    I've totally been drooling after that bag for over a year too! The price keeps going up! The only thing is, initially I felt like it would be a perfect work bag but then I don't work! haha. And then, 2 of my girlfriends got the bag and I don't want it anymore! It's so pretty though!! I was contemplating getting the greige color but all your choices are great! Can't go wrong!

    Get the taupe color! I have the shopper in that shade and it goes with everything. I absolutely love it and you will too! I am new mom and this bag is perfect for toting the babys things as well as my own :)

    The taupe color is beautiful and goes with everything, but I love the colorblocking in the first one. Aw, you are so lucky…I wish I could find one out here in Malaysia! As you, I have been on the search. Love your post and just glad to have found your site! I hope you can stop by my blog and say hello. Have fun with your new bag.xo Gracewww.wrinkledchiffon.com
