THE SEARCH for the PERFECT S/S'12 BLUE BAG

Ever since I spotted this gorgeous Céline Luggage Tote in royal blue, as well as YSL's Chyc Cabas in the same pantone, I've been lusting and itching to own my very own blue wonder. Unfortunately, I procrastinated on purchasing one and low and behold - just when S/S'12 is creeping up I can't even find one to save my life.

I've actually spotted a Céline Luggage in the same color at Takashimaya when they opened their new flagship last Thursday; sad to say the piece is only for display and is not for sale. As for the YSL Chyc it is still available through YSL's E-shop but alas they do not deliver to Singapore. And even if I find a way for it to be bought and shipped to me, it's still much pricier than what they sell the Chyc Cabas for here. Blame it on the fluctuating exchange rates.

With the season of spring looming in, I continued my prowl and search for the brightest blue bag I can find to add a burst of color to my S/S wardrobe. And of late, I've only spotted 2 suitable possibilities to satisfy my thirst for something blue.

Scouring Singapore for the past 3 days, I've spotted the YSL Chyc Cabas in a dark midnight blue and a Givenchy Nightingale in the bright blue that I've been lusting for. I can't decide for the life of me which one I should get. My issue with the YSL Chyc is that it's too dark a blue and the color reminds me of the Céline Luggage that I already have; whilst my issue with the Givenchy Nightingale would be the fact that it's the only piece [ergo it comes with scratches and such] plus the fact that I feel it lacks the right pop of gold hardware. Dilemmas dilemmas - what do you guys think? Should I give in and just wait for the fresh shipment of Givenchy Nightingale in blue or should I just order from YSL online [in spite of the higher price point] or just beg the Céline SAs at Takashimaya to sell me the display piece they have? Guess we'll find out what happens in the coming weeks as I won't be resting until I have my very own piece of blue heaven!
