Rooftop Getaway :: Black, White & Vintage Celine

Thank you so much for playing the guessing game!  And the winner goes to… Shemah, Kylie, Four Carats, and VDS!  40 virtual hugs to each of you!  =D

Introducing my latest baby … a vintage Celine Classic Box circa 1970.   She’s the oldest bag (but young in spirit!) in my collection.

This bag has a shoulder strap but for this outfit, I love wearing her as a clutch. I wanted my outfit to be a neutral backdrop in order to highlight the bag.  Just a white shirt paired with cropped black pants.

Phoebe Philo took over the reign as creative director of Celine in September of 2008.  With a short hiatus leaving Chloe a few years before, the talented Philo returned with quiet ambition.  I love how she modernized but yet kept tribute to the Classic Box design.  The Celine small Classic Box and the micro Luggage Tote has been on my wishlist for quite some time now.  Given that the medium Classic Box is $3,400 (with a price increase to $3,600 due in Fall), I can only dream of owning one as of now.  However, I found this beauty on Ebay a week ago for 1/17th of the price.  She’s in fantastic condition with a few tiny pits on the hardware.  I absolutely adore the vintage horse carriage closure and scrumptious thick leather!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
