Céline

I only have one word for this choker necklace by Céline: OBSESSED! One of the most amazing statement necklaces I’ve seen in the last few years. I just love the chunky gold chain links with the massive ID tag, they make the necklace look uber-luxurious (and also quite heavy), don’t you agree? And just like every other piece coming from the French design house, this necklace has become quite the “It“-thing to have. I’m not sure how much it costs, but even if one had the funds to splurge on this highly coveted necklace, it’d probably be very hard to come by now that it has become so popular.

I have a feeling this summer will be the summer of the espadrille. First we had Valentino’s lace espadrilles and Chanel’s iconic cap-toe espadrille flats and Céline have created their own version in form of this pony hair espadrille slipper which also comes in gorgeous leopard print and royal blue (my fave!). I couldn’t find a retail price for these, but I’m sure they’re totally out of my budget.

Let’s talk about wedges for a moment. Just how good are they? I mean, you can either eat or wear them. Pure genius! 😉 All (stale) jokes aside though, wedges are definitely a girl’s best friend. They are the best compromise between extra height and comfort. These slingback espadrille wedges by Céline are admittedly cute, but they don’t really make me want to spend almost $500 on them.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Cabas Zip Tote

by Irina on February 11, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on February 11, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Well, hello beautiful! — Sorry, I can’t help but be absolutely smitten by the beauty that is the Cabas Zip Tote by Céline. Sure the Luggage tote may have more buzz factor, but it’s the simplified elegance of the Cabas that secretly stole my heart. And not just mine! Supermodel Miranda Kerr has been practically glued to her ponyhair version during the last few months. Can’t blame her, right? It’s such a fabulous bag that’ll fit a good amount of everyday essentials. The price is astonishingly moderate at “only” $1.200 for a high-end designer bag, but unfortunately it’s almost impossible to get your hands on this particular bag. Boohoo!
