Currently Crushing: The Perfect Black Bag
I have been looking for the perfect structure black bag for work that isn’t too serious so I can take it from day to night. Below are three totes that I’m currently crushing on. They vary in prices and each one has a personality of her own.
I love the shape, texture, style and size of the Marc Jacobs Crosby bag, it’s perfect for every occasion and is exactly what I have been looking for. As for the Valentino tote, the studs are fun, edgy and all around glam, but I wonder if I will get tired of it. And then there’s Celine. As much as I tried to not like you, you sure know how to creep into a girl’s heart…The only problem is there’s a long wait list in my area and I have to be real, that’s a lot of lunch-less days I’m giving up and I love my lunches. Decisions, decisions….
I’m curious to know your thoughts on the bags below. If you had one pick, which one would it be?
Marc Jacobs Crosby Sutton Bag
Valentino Rockstud Textured Leather Bag
Celine Mini Luggage
Marc Jacobs! Loves the shape!
[…] Marc Jacobs Crosby Sutton bag a couple of weeks ago, I thought I would regret choosing her over a Valentino and a Celine, but each time I see her in photos, I love her even […]
I love the Celine. Wish I could afford one!!! I need to start a bag fund.
Ooh I have the Celine in black, but I’ve recently been thinking about switching it out for another color. Love the valentino, too…they’ll all look great on you! :)
These are gorgeous. I have the Celine tote, so I will take the Valentino one :)
I am in the similar situation! I do not own a black bag and everytime I say to myself ok let’s look for a black bag, I always ended up with a coloured one (I LOVE bright colours lol)
I have been thinking trading in my mini red luggage for a black micro since the size fits me better but I am still thinking haha.
Noooo, don’t return your red Celine, she’s beautiful and the color is to die for!
My vote is for the Marc Jacobs bag – that shape is unique but the style is still classic enough that you could carry it forever.
Thank you! :)
My vote’s gotta be for the MJ! I’ve been eyeing structured dome-shaped bags myself (Tory Burch Robinson is on my wishlist) so I may be a bit biased ;) I feel like everyone and their mom has the Celine so that’s kind of a turnoff for me. The Valentino is gorgeous but I’m not sure if it’ll look dated in a few years. In the end, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of these :) Good luck, KT!
Cee, I do love the dome like shape of both bags (the MJ and the Tory) and that is actually the reason why I tried to not like the Celine. It’s a beautiful bag no doubt but I also feel like everyone and their mamas has it so for that it turned me off for awhile….but in just looking at her, she’s still beautiful. This is a tough one for sure! lol
Ooooooh what a hard decision to make! All 3 bags are fabulous but my heart is leaning towards to the Celine! Good luck!!
Love the Celine, but that one with the studs is awesome, too!
Hnghhhhh, you already know my feelings regarding this matter! lol :P They’re all so beautiful in their own way, and that Celine is just too beautiful and classic! But like I said, I’d personally go for the MJ one because it looks like a nice amalgamation of the Valentino and the Celine–very classic and timeless (especially with the shape and the gorgeous gold hardwear) but with a bit of edge with the texurization.
Let me know when you make your decision! ;)
I would go with the Marc Jacobs bag, because like you said, it’s so versatile and the Celine Bags, I feel everyone has! I love the shape of it and that it is also cross-body, but can be carried as well! Hope you are having a good day! xx Pip
Celine…no question about it.
Totally classic, gorgeous and you WILL love it!!!
I know everyone’s gonna say Celine but my vote goes to the Valentino!!! I can see you rocking it now!
In my mind, the choice is easy – but I’ve been known to go without lunch for months over a pair of shoes :) In all seriousness, though, the Celine bag is stunning beyond words, and I feel like it would be a better investment than the other two, which have more “trendy” elements that you would be more likely to tire of over time.
Wow this is a tough choice! From what you wrote it looks you have been looking for a bag like the Marc Jacobs and it’s everything you wanted. I love the Valentino also but I think it’s trendy and may not be a bag for everyday use. The Celine, well it’s Celine. I think it’s a lovely bag but it’s like eye candy on everyone’s arms and that kind of makes me not care for it because it’s everwhere. I don’t know, that’s just my personal opinion but I’m sure whichever you end up with would be fab and I can’t wait to see photos! :)
Celine all the way, it’s definitely worth a couple of lunch-less days
