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!

Update (09/04/2012): Found another great Céline Cabas Zip Tote alternative in this faux leather shopper by Aldo. What I love about this bag are the bone-colored inlays when you open the front zippers. Also available in camel/pink and white/black.

In terms of quality this faux leather zipped tote by Forever 21 is no match for the original Céline, but if you’re looking for the designer look and don’t want to spend too much on it, this bag wil certainly do the job. Get it while stock lasts!
