Celine Mini Belt Bag Review

It smells nice, feels good to touch, and has a nice weight. Bag arrived with care cards, dustbag and was stuffed to prevent squishing. I was DELIGHTED when I unboxed this bag because it looked SO good. Almost felt I bought this bag online from the store with sketchy cardboard packaging – but hey, no complaints! I’m currently writing about Celine’s handbags and this article helped me understand why the bag isn’t as popular as the other models. There are two other notables with the belt bag that needs to be mentioned and it centers around the flap’s design.

However, the flaws are not deal breakers and I would happily buy this bag in another colour from JXG. Note that I may receive a commission on clicks and purchases from links in this post. One last thing I wanted to mention are the little “catfish whisker” looking things.

I’ve been lucky enough to make a few luxury purchases over the past few years (I keep saying I need to do them before we have kids!). But, my favorite so far has been my Celine that I bought in Paris with my mom in April. Celine bags have been popular for years now, so I’ve been coveting it for quite some time. After a few months of use I thought it would be helpful to write a full Celine Belt Bag review. While designer items can be gorgeous additions to your closet, they come at a big price. Keep reading to see why I think my Celine Belt Bag has been one of my best purchases.

Even more, the style effortlessly transitions to evening with elegant attire like cocktail dresses and tuxedo blazers. The boxy, black leather top-handle handbag features discreet gold hardware and thenew accent-less Celine logo. It’s named after the location of the brand’s headquarters and atelier, in a 17th-century mansion on 16 Rue Vivienne in Paris. The bag will come in three sizes and a range of colors. I chose this Celine classic bag in black natural calfskin so that I’d have the ability to pair it back with the rest of the outfits in my capsule wardrobe.

I really can’t think of any cons for this bag. It comes in a few sizes, so if this one is too big for you there are other options. The sizing goes Pico, Nano, Micro, and Mini, which is super confusing but whatever at least the options are there. I’m super keen on this bag but we can’t get the white here in Australia so I was thinking of buying it online. Congratulations on your bag, I too was surprised at how much capacity this bag has yet is so diminutive. Mine is frost colour and as with all my bags, especially light ones, I spray it throughout with carbon pro.

This bag is so incredibly hard to find but I got super lucky because I posted an “in search of” request on a Chanel Facebook group and a salesperson at Saks actually reached out to me saying she had one! I couldn’t believe it because I know there are waitlists for this in Canada and the US. I bought this bag as something I can wear to weddings to pair with clothes that don’t go well with lighter coloured bags (i.e. my Alma BB).
