Posting here for traffic (tried S&B) as my mum is leaving soon and I need fast responses :/

Hello everyone,

Well Christmas is around the corner and my parents have said they want to get me a bag ! (I'm young and still dependant, long story as to why I'm on this forum).

'Problem' is , I can't quite decide which one I want more.

I don't know how to attach pictures so I'll give full names and avg prices so people can hopefully google if they don't know the bags.
Louis Vuitton Alma BB in epi leather (£1100)
Celine Nano Luggage Tote (~£1900)

I want a small bag as that's what I use most and I want one to use daily. Also want one that can be evening or day.

Thanks for your advice !

Lucky girl! The LV every time!

Not usually a LV fan but I'd go for the LV! smile

I would go for the celine just because you said you were still young.. The alma bb will fair better in the re sale market but imo has a more mature look.

Look at the LV Kensington

LV it's more classic

Personally I'd go for a Chloe bag - they do some lovely small shoulder bags.

Of the two you have posted I think I like the shape of the LV best!

Thankyou for your fast responses !

Soft Yes, I'm worried that the alma has on older look to it -but I was thinking the small one (BB) would be appropriate and I'd be able to use it as an evening bag aswell? Checked the Kensington and I'm not a fan I'm afraid, thankyou though

Cary and glamour why would you go for the LV ? Loyalty to them or ...?

Had to Google... was expecting not to like the LV one but actually I do, and think the Celine one is pretty ugly.

I love the celine one and am coveting one of these bags

Scoose Tue 15-Nov-16 19:27:38

I also love the givenchy antigona which may be another option for you

Spice22 Tue 15-Nov-16 19:36:54

intothefire I do like the Chloe bags but the ones I like most are suede and I'm scared I'd ruin it, so would rather get myself that one day as opposed to getting it as a gift iyswim.

Scoose I like the aintogona on others, but it's too bulky for me ! Thankyou though

LV seems to be winning

By the way, if you take it on holiday don't leave it on the floor of the plane. Especially if there's a child in the row in front.

Trust me.

Richard confused I don't even want to ask !

Yabu to post without links to bags. Love a bit of handbag porn. 😤

Oly5 Tue 15-Nov-16 19:39:54

LV is far nicer

Spice22 Tue 15-Nov-16 19:41:59

Shena haha sorry. Don't think the links take you to the exact bag but will try .

Redrocketship Tue 15-Nov-16 19:42:21

Definitely the LV. The celine bag won't be a classic IMO like the alma already is

RichardBucket Tue 15-Nov-16 19:44:14

Here are pics - the reddish one is the LV smile

Shenanagins Tue 15-Nov-16 19:59:11

Ok, now I'm happy! LV one without a doubt!

alphabettyspaghetty Tue 15-Nov-16 20:06:50

Celine definitely

Spice22 Tue 15-Nov-16 20:12:30

Thankyou Richard , so helpful !

Haha I'm actually torn - I just see the positive to both, as mentioned by PPs. Maybe I should ask for it to be a surprise ?

Tryingtostayyoung Tue 15-Nov-16 20:45:38

The celine!!!

gunsandbanjos Tue 15-Nov-16 20:49:11

LV all day long.

Not a Celine fan with its robot face!!

Love handbags, mulberry is my weakness.
