Celine black leather cabas tote (similar here and here)
A simple leather tote bag has been on my wish list for some time now, but it's been one of those things that has been pushed back on the sidelines time and time again as I continuously come across other pieces that I have been keeping my eye out for. While I favour one bag at a time, I generally end up filling a fabric bag with a number of items to take to work that don't fit in my PS11 - which I must say is surprisingly roomy, but nonetheless, does not fit such pleasantries as my lunch, notebooks and miscellaneous items that I have sold on eBay or Trade Me to a new home. Considering that, I question why it's taken me so long to take the plunge and buy one. I had the fortune of coming across a second hand Celine Cabas bag in black, which I shall admit I most certainly jumped at the opportunity to buy it. It epitomizes the ideal of what I was searching for, in terms of design, simplicity and functionality. I foresee this bag becoming a rather regular fixture on my arm.
I must also note that I was honoured to be interviewed over on A Jaded Life. Click the link to check it out :)
