A New Bag

I had a few minutes between an alterations appointment and a lunch lecture yesterday so I did a quick pass through Bergdorf’s handbag and shoe floors. For the first time in ages, I have nothing on my wish list so I figured it would be a harmless expedition. Sometimes I don’t realize I need something until I see it and that was the case yesterday. I own large hobos, clutches, and structured purses, but a supple tuck-under-my-arm shoulder bag would be great for everyday running around. As I passed this Celine Romy sitting on a display cube, it was like a puppy in the window — I couldn’t resist.

  • Love this bag! A forever piece. You’re right, it will mold to your body. It appears to be sold out on the Celine site

  • Love it! Congrats! I just got the Celine Ava (a smaller version) after a very successful trip to the Celine boutique last month. So many great bags, shoes and boots this season!

  • I love it !
    I kept my crescent shape Prada from10 years ago. Lightweight and practical to tuck under your arm and go ~ now that wallets have been replaced with slim card holders ~ no wonder it was reintroduced this season. But no comparison as my original is trimmed with leather and chunky hardware.
    And I find Prada bags last forever…thankfully:)

  • To be honest, I haven’t checked out Celine since Hedi Slimane took over. I love this timeless bag and it will treat you well for years to come. Marcheline Isabelle

  • Hah! My dachshund is soooo fat and has outlived the upper end of the breed’s life expectancy with no signs of slowing…

  • That’s a cute bag. I can’t believe you have nothing on your wish list.

  • T- What’s on yours?

    PrestonOctober 14th, 2021  8:04 AM

     
  • As an aside, I am currently wearing the twisted hoop earrings you featured in the previous post and I can tell I’ll be wearing them all winter. I even slept in them and they’re so comfortable. Love X

  • I’m wearing them on my IG post, such a win-win. Glad you like them, too.

  • P – Just some luxe basics since my new permanent duty station is home but I ordered a new navy Khaite v neck sweater, 2 Prada v neck sweaters in gray and navy, a Sacai puffer in black, a diamond pendant from my favorite local jeweler, Shah and Shah and a the Row Margaux. Oh and I am still trying to secure the beige Hermès clogs. BTW, I love those socks you posted. I’m ordering them now. – T

  • The Gucci is a beautiful bag and definitely an investment piece but, oooh…that Celine bag! J’adore!
