I don’t need this Gucci bag (I already have it in other colors), and I have the Celine Romy in this color. So, why am I even considering it? Because, when I find something I love and know I’ll wear forever, I buy it. Please talk me out of this…
This bag is now $1000 more than when I bought the first one in December 2019 — wow.
Swoon. If you love it, can afford it, and will wear it forever…
Sorry, I can’t talk you out of it. I purchased it for myself and love it more than I can say. I am sure I will continue to love and use it for many years. You should get it.
I’m afraid you are preaching to the wrong crowd Preston lol. She’s a beauty. Don’t shoot me but what about selling or giving away the Celine?
I am here to tell you that you won’t regret it! Happy shopping! Marcheline Isabelle
This is clearly a rhetorical statement.
Why would anyone try to talk you out of that beauty?!?
Run, don’t walk.
Get it, Preston. Yu know you won’t regret it!
Which Gucci bag is your favorite?
This Horsebit 1955 in dark brown.
It’s so good!!
I tend to buy the same thing, sometimes exactly, over years. It’s obviously a signature style for you, and the gold color is really beautiful. Sporty chic!
I have a favorite bag in four different colors. What can I say?
Oh Preston I get in trouble every time I read your email you have such a great eye !
If you will wear it forever you must buy it plus you have daughters . . .
I have it in that colour (and in two other colour ways). It’s a great bag. The down side is the now gravely inflated price. That is not to be under estimated, especially in the current economic climate. Is it an investment piece? Probably.
I adore the CELINE Romy! It is an excellent choice and looks roomier and easier to carry and style than the Gucci (agreed a stunner). Trust your initial instinct — it is good. www.lisavonweise.com
A forever piece is balanced out by per wear, so I say say why not?
I just wish when converted to Canadian I could say say the same 🙁
If your previous bag is already $1000 higher then isn’t this bag a smart investment? 🙂
I love it.
I dropped into the comments expecting to read lots of well reasoned explanations of why you should let this one go. (OK, not really, but one day, your commenters might surprise me!)
If you can swing it, and it won’t sit in a box in the back of the closet, go for it. Please post pictures if you get it.
This one is very different than the Celine…even if they are the same color. It is classic, so
I’d get it if you love it.
I like the Celine better…
Get the bag! It’s so you! Charge it up! Layaway!
Thank you all for chiming in. Seems to be a no-brainer since it’s so obviously ‘me’.
Its so classic! Go for it…
Love the bag; very classy and classic. The price increase is definitely above and beyond increases due to inflation, but then, most luxury good makes have had similar price increases or more.
I’ve been visiting that bag on Matches and the leather is calf so that may be the reason for the price increase. I visited the bag when you first posted it and it was the same leather as my Celine box so I didn’t get it. This one is special so we can compare notes when I get mine.
