NEW IN: Celine Mini Belt Bag

I’ve done it again guys. Say hello to my new-to-me Celine belt bag!

So this bag needs no introduction, but if you havent seen my youtube video yet, this gorgeous Celine Belt Bag is the latest addition to my handbag family!

Now I did already go into significant dept about this bag when I unboxed it on my youtube channel, but I cant tell you how excited I am to have this in my grubby little hands. I’ve honestly been obssessing about it for a few months now, and had initially contemplated between the Balenciaga and a black version of this. Luckily I decided on the Balenciaga because I was able to find this dune colour later down the line!

As I said in my video, I had first seen this last year when I was lusting very heavily for the Celine Trapeze. It had almost got to the point where I was going to purchase a brand new Celine Trapeze at David Jones in a tricolor (cobalt blue, white & black). I decided to pass in the end, but that was the first time I also saw the Celine Belt bagI thought it looked okay but didnt even give it a second glance. Until I discovered Lizzy Hadfield and her gorgeous blog, and of course her minimalist style.

I kept seeing the Celine belt bag and boy, it grew on me very quickly and I was obsessed! Ever since I’ve been stalking that bag on online consignment stores because I do find that Celine unfortunately do not re-sell as well as other brands I’m usually a frequent buyer of.

I just love the lines, the structure, and shape and silhouette of this bag! I think its a great shoulder bag, and pairs so well with so many outfits! I’m stoked to have a lighter beige bag like this in my collection, because it’s actually not something I have a lot of.

First Impression?

So believe it or not, I’ve actually had this bag for a few weeks now, and I have useeeeed this bag! I took it with me to Sydney and it was great! It was the perfect companion for a weekend getaway in the city. I felt so city-chic because this is honestly the vibes the bag gives. The sleek minimalist style makes it look so premium and high fashion. I absolutely love it! I’m also so so so glad I got it in the drummed leather because to me it look so much more premium and expensive than the grained skin. The only drawback with wearing this bag was actually the shoulder strap – I tend to carry a lot of things with me, and when I’ve got a DSRL + 2 lenses + water bottle + makeup bag — the bag ends up weighing tonne! During these times I did worry sometimes when I wore it with the shoulder strap only that it would snap off and break! Luckily it didn’t… but it did play on my mind a lot!

Now I’m sure you’re curious about the closure? it wasn’t that bad! Honestly, I knew about the closure coming into this purchase so I was prepared, but all I did was lift a leg up to help it close and it was fine! Definitely not as bad as I thought anyways!

So what do you guys think of my new handbag purchase?

    Do you still like this bag even though it gets pretty heavy after all the bag is filled?

    • I have to admit when its full and the shoulder strap doesnt feel like it would hold everything, and I get worried about distorting the bag. But so far I havent had any issues or significant wear and tear just yet 🙂

  • Stephanie N

    hi, do you think the color is easy to maintain since it’s a lighter color?
    Thanks!

  • Yuna

    Hey june i love the bag and would love to ask for your opinion in size as im quite petite and only 155cm in height. Been contemplating of getting it or not? Other thing is im considering chanel classic jumbo flap bag? Do you think its going to be huge on me? Thanks babe xxx

    • Absolutely hun! I’m only 155cm myself! Not sure about the jumbo, because it’s never caught my eye. But last time I tried it, I didnt really like the fit at all! Just my opinion 🙂

  • I just came across your review and have the same bag and love it! A little tip- you can use a white plastic eraser on the outside to clean up almost wear!
