The "It" Bag: Céline Luggage Tote

Generally, I believe trends are both fleeting and cyclical.  I try not to succumb to the appeal of “It” bags because, let’s be honest, a bag can’t be it forever (unless we’re talking about Chanel quilted lambskin).  More often than not, after their fifteen minutes of fame, they begin to pervade the perimeter of tacky (Think Stephen Sprouse Graffiti for Louis Vuitton or Kim Kardashian toting around a Birkin etc…).  However, despite my hesitations about “It” bags, I simply could not resist Céline's Luggage Tote with sumptuous suede siding and gilded golden hardware.  The best thing about this tote is its ability to make any ensemble ten times more stylish.  Dear Céline, if loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
