The Small Things

In the previous post, I mentioned my surprise at this bag's smaller-than-expected size in person. Well, I'll have to semi-retract that statement. After arriving at work this morning, I couldn't figure out a way to store the bag in my usual cabinet without bending/twisting/deforming the handles (and this is coming from someone who enjoys a good puzzle). To save my coworkers from hearing more clanking noise (metal feet on bag + metal cabinet = that annoying coworker), I plopped it right next to my monitor. What a great sight to see whenever I took a break from work. The bright red color never failed to bring a smile to my face. #enjoyingthesmallthingsinlife

    1. Oh my gosh, if I had a Celine I'd be too scared to even think about bending the handles. What if it wouldn't bend back properly - oh the horror. First world girl fashion problems always make me laugh, haha.

  10. Hi Cee,
    I also own that exact same tote, and I've found out, much to my dismay, that the red handles rub off on my light-colored sleeves. Do you see that as well or is it just a problem with my particular item?

    1. Hey Julie! Oh no, that is not good news. I haven't noticed any discoloration on my clothes from the red leather (knock on wood), but I'll pay closer attention and let you know if this changes.

      I did notice faint red marks on my closet wall (where the back of my Tillary tote leans against). I don't know if it's from a wet spot (took my bag out in the rain) or not. Now I'm paranoid too.

    2. Hopefully it's just me then! I found out about this in the worst way possible: my Jcrew trench coat now has red marks up and down one sleeve, and apparently dry cleaning can't take it out. Boo.

I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
