There are very few designers that make me completely insane in the membrane. Tina had to talk me down off the Barneys roof when I became semi fashion suicidal over a Givenchy studded satchel. I had just celebrated a recent acquisition of a black Happy Lanvin Bag from my pal, Richard Erani’s store Chuckies on 3rd Avenue In Manhattan (if you don’t know Richard, you aren’t experienced. He sells Lanvin, Stella, Miu Miu, YSL, Prada, Tory Burch…etc and buys it differently so you will see exclusive colors of a YSL Tribute there and a different Miu Miu color there. Madison Avenue (347) 453-0094, 3rd Avenue (212-593-9898) and King’s Highway Brooklyn-yes!- (718) 376-1003.) But because I am a bag and designer label WHORE this simply wasn’t enough. My BFF Caryn kept talking over and over about the Celine Boston bag. And I had my eye on that when I had been out shooting in LA for Us Weekly as a few people on the crew had the bag.
It wasn’t till the other night when we went to Bergdorf Goodman In NY and we saw the Orange Boston that I really started to lose my shit. It was one of those moments when you start to calculate in your mind and choose which credit card to split the cost on so the blow isn’t too extreme. It didn’t help that the store made me manic when the sales girl said to me the magic words ” “there are only two left in this color.” AND THAT WAS IT. My friend Caryn on the other hand wanted the same bag-but in brown or tan. She called around the country and finally got someone on the phone at Celine in Florida. Actually Tina thanks for posting the number on the site because that’s who Caryn called. Anywhoo-the Leopard version is BEYOND sick and would never kick that out of bed but this Orange, Hermes like, grainy leather made my eyes pop out of the sockets.
