In celebration for my career milestone, I decided to reward myself with something beautiful. And so I did. I paid for a ticket to Paris, stayed in one of the cute boutique hotels, ate macaroons and fresh baguettes, visited mega art exhibits (Dali and Hopper), and sniffed perfumes till my senses were completely overwhelmed! And, I picked up my first Celine.
This little gem was one of the main reasons for me wanting to go to Paris. The Celine luggage tote was heavily contested by Asian and Russian patrons who were visiting Paris for the festive season. It was a rather stressful purchase because I needed time to consider, and meanwhile having a few customers standing close by waiting for me to let go of the handles.
I was torn between a Celine luggage tote and a classic Chanel flap bag. Well, the latter was sold out in the medium size in the whole of Europe. I eventually thought that I'm just not ready to have a Chanel in my life. It's not quite my style, not yet anyway. Maybe when I'm older.
