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 !

I'd prefer the celine nano to the alma bb but I'd be inclined together the alma in a bigger size over a celine in a bigger size.

I think the alma is more classic but I don't like it in the tiny size.

What colours are you looking at?

older thanks for replying !

For the alma , I want it in Fuschia. Which is another reason I want it small - it'll be a nice pop of colour with my usual dark clothes. Also, I feel the Alma in bigger sizes is a bit too grown up looking for me.
The Celine Nano would be in black

I'd opt for the Celine. I think it's younger and more chic. But then I'm not much of an Alma fan. Have you considered the LV Cluny BB?

I say buy the alma, LV has been making it since the thirties, it is a classic. I love it (I have 3, 1 damier 1 epi rouge and 1 epi blue).

I'd pick the Celine any day of the week

Here is my alma damier MM next to my speedy 30. I have the MM model, the speedy holds more but the alma is prettier. The initials are my initials heat stamped, they can do that when you buy them. Maybe the celine looks better but I doubt it will still be made in the next 10 years, the alma is a classic.

Have you considered the Speedy 25 (or the bandouliere version) as an alternative to the Alma? I love the Speedy - most practical bag ever.

Definately the Alma, really dont like the shape of the other.

100% Alma

Yes I decided to go for the Alma ! I think I love it a bit more...

anice the speedy really doesn't appeal to me for some reason.
