In time for their Winter ’15 collection, Céline’s classic Trotteur gets a subtle yet significant update with new closure. The original saddle-inspired version is overtly simple, almost completely free of metal details. This new variation on the closure changes the bag completely, just the way our accessories can change the connotation of our outfits.
Actually, I often think of gleaming hardware as the equivalent of jewels for a bag. The right necklace or pair of earrings brighten up our look, and so does the spanking-new touch of shine on the Trotteur. To be honest, this is a bag I didn’t give much thought to last season. But now? It’s more than worthy of our attention. Just look at it on actress Li Bing Bing. The bold hue punctuates her otherwise monochrome white outfit, and the glistening bit of gold quietly mirrors her pendant necklace. It just goes to show less can be more, and a small switch-up can make all the difference. Céline Trotteur Bag available in mini, $2,200, and medium, $2,650, at Forty Five Ten.Other Brands

There’s already a review on the blog of the smooth leather Celine Box bag replica but today we’re going to see the one made of drummed leather. Surprisingly or not, the quality of the two bags is different.
This Celine replica review is very spot on and detailed. You’re going to find out both the good and the bad things about the packaging and the bag itself, so I think you should definitely check it out if you’re interested in buying this replica Celine bag as well.
That being said, here is the Celine Box bag replica review:
Here’s my little review on the box bag! After weeks of researching replicas and reading your blog, I decided to go with bagaholics. Seeing that previous review on another reader’s box bag seemed so promising, even though I picked out the little curved bottom flaw. Other than that the bag did really look good for a replica. I finally made the plunge on day to buy the box bag as it was now or never (our AUD is really terrible against the USD).
At first I was anxious of paying with my credit card, etc. But my invoice came in a couple of hours later after placing my order and I paid it straight away. Came up to $544AUD (380USD), not as bad as I was expecting but still over that $500 budget that I was kinda setting for myself. I knew they used EMS and I’ve had excellent experiences with EMS before, so I was assured I was going to receive the bag quick and clean. And I did! Exactly 6 days later after paying for the bag, it was in my hands. I was extremely excited to open it up and to see it when I got home. I opened it up, the box looked good, the packaging was decent, so the box survived at least. I opened it up, the dust bag was already incorrect, but that’s just me being picky. Quite frankly who cares, I should be happy that it CAME with a dust bag haha! Then I opened up the dust bag to see more packaging, it was good to see how well they packaged it, however the strap was already connected and wasn’t rolled up or anything.
My first initial thoughts was the smell.. (don’t want to offend anyone out there at all!!) it really did smell like “China” LOL. My next thoughts was how gorgeous this bag was, so minimal, so classy, so timeless. The goatskin was AMAZING I was VERY impressed. The bag looked near perfect on the outside! However my heart sank a little bit when I opened it up and the Celine logo wasn’t done as well. I’ll be providing high quality pictures for this post! I thought maybe I can live with this. So I put the bag down and went do things for a couple of hours. I then came back and inspected the bag a little further. I was again, disappointed with the logo. Closer look, the C is a tiny bit bigger, the I is a tiny bit slanted and it was slightly chipped off as well. I guess because of the goat skin, but debatable I guess? Unfortunately after further inspection, I can see that the gold on the zipper half of it has already chipped off, and the biggest deal breaker for me was the Celine logo was NOT CENTERED! I know, I know, it’s a replica. But then I realised that maybe replicas weren’t for me. Which is fine, as Miss Eva Knox said, replicas aren’t for everyone. Each to their own. She’s right, and I’m one of them.
So I’m in the process of returning this item, on the condition that I pay the restocking fee. That’s fine by me, this was an experience, and I was more than happy to take photos and send it off to Eva to post on her blog, to maybe help future readers/customers on making decisions on buying good quality replicas. Maybe bagaholics’ smooth leather box bag is better (as the previous box bag review states) but I’m not sure if it’s specifically just my luck with my bag, or maybe it’s just goatskin that makes it difficult to do the logo. Hopefully my refund will be a smooth transaction, and I do apologise for writing such a long post/review! Best of luck for future buyers on their purchases
I would love to hear your input on this Eva! Thanks a lot for helping all of us out, and thank you for posting this up on your blog!
As I was saying in the beginning, I think this Bagaholicsonlinebags.com review of their Celine Box bag replica made of grained leather includes pretty much everything you might want to know about this bag.
I think Catherine was right about the logo, it doesn’t even compare to the one of the smooth leather Box bag. In all fairness it doesn’t look perfect in the photo on the site either, so you can’t say they were trying to fool anyone. Just like my friend suspected, the texture of the drummed leather makes it more difficult to make a perfectly clear logo. But it could have been better anyway.
If you’re planning to buy the replica Celine Box bag as well, please take into account all the details presented in this review. If you feel like you wouldn’t be able to get over these flaws, don’t get it or choose the one in smooth leather instead. Because returning a replica bag is never an easy process when you don’t hate it. There are many good things about this Celine Box bag replica, which made the decision more difficult for my friend.
I would also like to point out that the “China smell” is not something unusual for replica bags, even when they’re made of real leather like this one is. And there’s no doubt that it’s made of real leather. But this is not a big deal, because you can easily get rid of the smell.
It’s true, replica bags are not for everyone because they’re risky to buy and you can’t ever be 100% sure about what you’re going to get. Even though you come across a reliable replica site like Bagaholics that allows you to return the bag if you just don’t like it, this still doesn’t guarantee that all their replica handbags have the same quality…some are better than the others. So you need to take this into account too when buying a replica bag. At the same time a not-so-satisfying replica bag can be just an exception, it doesn’t mean you should start doubting the quality of all their Celine replica bags because of it.
Sometimes you love a replica bag so much you can easily get past a flaw. Other times a single flaw can bother you so much you just can’t imagine yourself wearing that bag with pride. And in cases like this there really isn’t something else to do than to return it. Please remember that many replica website only allow you to return a replica bag if it has obvious flaws or if it arrived damaged! Make sure you check that before you actually buy it because otherwise you’re going to get stuck with really bad replica bags! And trust me, this Celine Box bag replica is not a bad replica bag, just look at other Celine replica bagreviews on the blog! Some of those bags are just horrible!
Look at the leather, the stitching, the logo, the clasp and all the other details of this Celine replica bag and tell me: would you have kept it?
