CELINE PHANTOM REVIEW & WHAT'S IN MY BAG
Celine

Surprise!! I bought a new Celine Phantom! I am in awe of this beauty and I named him Gerald. I am so happy to be sharing with you all what is in my new purse! I wanted this purse since I was 12 years old.

A little bit about the Celine Phantom - If you are looking to buy this handbag there are pro's and con's. (Also this purse is being discontinued by Celine, as I was told by an associate) I recommend looking at it in person before purchasing, because this pure is not for everyone. 

C O N S

-  H E A V Y  I am not kidding when I say that this bag weighs at least 3 pounds on it’s own. I was shocked after owning it for quite a while. I watched videos and read blog posts about the weight and I did not believe that it was actually that heavy. I’ve seen it in person at Celine and such- but with all my essentials in it, I was surprised. Overtime I would stuff the bag with everything it was at least 15 pounds I carry around.

PRICE- This bag is not cheap. The Celine Phantom is going to cost about $3200 (with the price increase) brand new. (sans tax) There are always different alternatives to purchasing luxury! My readers know that I love Fashionphile. That’s where I purchased my handbag! Amazing layaway program and they have amazing customer service. I am a loyal fan of Fashionphile and swear by them!

Check out their Celine Phantom page. I have my eye on this one in Beige!

Leather - I chose the smooth calf skin because I like the look of it better. But I honestly should have chosen the pebbled leather because I got some scratched on it but it’s a little bit of leather conditioner - it was taken off. 

P R O S

SO MUCH SPACE - This is a pro and a con to me, I love a big bag with space! The suede lining is to die for!

STYLE- It just looks AMAZING. I am in love with the look of the handbag as a whole. The structure- quality and how much it has held its shape. My bag is from 2012. A 6 year old purse. In amazing condition and it looks brand new after a little condition with Kate Spade conditioner. 

Traveling purposes- it’s a great bag. Whether its a weekend get away with my BF. Or commuting to work and school. I love the look of this bag, with so much space and it's chic! This bag is nonetheless fun, luxurious, and it has become a classic style to Celine. I don’t think Celine will be going out of style anytime soon. I love this handbag! 

I have been carrying this fun bag for quite a while now, and I carry it as a top handle purse and the crook of my arm. It's heavy.. which is a con for me. But nontheless I love this bag. Here are some of my things that I carry in my purse. 

Mac book and charger - If I need my laptop for class! 

Ipad and charger- If I do not need my Macbook and I want to carry something lighters

Airpods- Compatible with Mac book, ipad and iphone.. and not to mention tangle free

Agenda- For when I need to write down my whole life.

Keys, advil, gum, snacks, hand sanitizer, lotion, Gucci Bloom rollerball perfume, wet wipes, feminine products.
