My Celine Mini Belt Bag has easily become one of my most worn handbags. I often get questions about this handbag and many of you ask about the size, durability and if I would recommend this as an “everyday bag”. Below, I’ve put together a full list of the standard details on this bag, but also share my pros and cons.
What do you think of the Celine Mini Belt Bag?
- 11 X 9 X 7 IN (28 X 23 X 17 CM)
- 100% Calfskin
$2500 – $2700
When I buy an “everyday” designer bag, I want it to be something I can wear with anything and not worry about getting it dirty or scratching the leather. I want a bag I can do life with.
- Structured – I like that I can set this down and it doesn’t slouch
- Doesn’t scratch easily
- Wipes clean with a damp washcloth
- Bottom hardware
- Removable Shoulder Strap
- Exterior Zip Pocket
- 2 Inside Pockets that can easily fit your iPhone or cardholder
- No denim transfer – probably my #1 question with this bag. I have worn this for 1.5 years now and it honestly looks brand new. I wear dark jeans all the time and haven’t had one issue with this color.
I am not a fan of the flap closure. It’s pretty difficult to latch one-handed (which I’ve come to realize I always need something out of it when my hands are full) and I just feel like a snap could have been a better option.
DO I RECOMMEND?
100% yes. This bag is my favorite bag in my closet. I have been contemplating buying the black for some time now, and perhaps one day I’ll get my hands on one.
I have said it before, but I almost always buy my designer bags gently used. And in many cases, it comes with original packaging, receipts or tags and original dustbag. This allows me to buy a trendy or classic designer option at a fraction of the retail price. If you are curious about the places I shop for handbags, be sure to check out this post and this post.
