Something New: Celine Tailor Sunglasses

Trini blog | Celine tailor tortoiseshell sunglasses

So I had been needing a new pair of sunglasses for a while, I was bored with my three classic options (plus a very special pair in gingham I hardly use). I wanted a still classic design, but in tortoiseshell frames. I did have a few options on my wishlist, but this one made it to number one. The reasons? Quality, classic design, and most of all the actual design of the tortoiseshell print. I know there are thousands of options available, but I have a very sharp eye, and this particular variant of the print, stole my heart.

I had never tried on this design, we have no Celine stores in Spain just yet and we don’t have any optics that carry the brand and if they do they carry two or three design tops, and never this one. In fact only place I have ever managed to try on Celine sunglasses is in L.A. Even in Paris, Celine stores are always low on sunglasses stock so it’s a real problem finding a particular design, specially if its not a new one. In L.A I only managed to try on the original and the “Traveller” but they did not have this one. My only reference was the internet and still it was pretty hard to figure out if they would look good on me, since i don’t know why websites feature sunglasses, with no models. How is one supposed to get and idea of it? I even had to go through Instagram searching for #celinesunglasses, and believe it or not it became my best source. Luckily I found pictures of people wearing them and I decided to go for it.

I don’t know for how long the “Tailor” has been around, but I would say at least 5 years. It’s one of the most classic designs of Celine sunglasses together with the “Audrey” (which I don’t fancy very much) and it has a lot of color options. Unfortunately this particular one, was awfully hard to find. But of course finding garments online is my thing, and I eventually did, and I am so happy with my purchase. It is a very classic, neutral design that I would almost assure you, suits almost every type of face.


Llevaba necesitando unas gafas nuevas, hace un montón de tiempo, la verdad estaba un poco cansada de no tener muchas opciones. Tenía en mente un diseño clásico de carey y aunque tenía varias en mi pre selección al final me decante por estas. Las razones? La calidad es estupenda, el diseño clásico y neutro pero el toque especial lo añade el marco de carey con un estampado precioso, bastante mas atractivo que la mayoría.

Nunca tuve la oportunidad de probarme este modelo en particular así que fue una compra a ojos cerrados, lamentable aun no hay tiendas de Celine en España y las pocas ópticas que tiene artículos de la marca no suelen tener variedad. Por extraño que parezca el único sitio en el que he podido probarme gafas de Celine ha sido en Los Angeles. Ni si quiera en Paris con tantas tiendas fue posible, ya sabéis lo difícil que es encontrar stock de lo que sea en las tiendas de allí, el stock vuela, mas si se trata de diseños mas antiguos. En L.A solo logré probarme los “Large Original” y el modelo “Traveler” pero mi modelo favorito no lo tenían. Mi única referencia fue internet y aún así es bastante difícil hacerse una idea de como sientan, si solo ves fotos de las gafas sin modelo! No entiendo porqué las tiendas hacen eso, ponen la foto de las gafas en varios ángulos pero sin modelo. Al final mi última opción fue buscar en Instagram con el hashtag #celinesunglasses y a partir de ahí ir buscando fotos de gente que las llevase puestas. Por supuesta habían bastantes, así que decidí arriesgarme y las pedí!

No se hace cuanto tiempo salieran las “Tailor” a la venta probablemente unos 5 años o más, junto con las Audrey son las gafas más antiguas y clásicas de Celine. Eso se traduce a que hay mas opciones de colores, aunque este diseño de carey en particular fue bastante difícil de encontrar. Pero como encontrar artículos específicos online es lo mío, acabé dando con ellas y ahora estoy encantada! Es un diseño súper clásico que casi me atrevo a garantizar le sienta bien a cualquier tipo de cara.

Something New: Celine vertical cabas bag

Today on Instagram you might have noticed how I posted this first picture asking you to guess what I just bought at Céline. (Well I know the title of this post gives it away now, but still I am felling like doing a reveal. Here we go: The shopping bag… Now you can already see that it’s a bag due to the dustbag and no box on sight, but which bag can it be? Hmmm… I realize that the ...

Every season I try and buy a new pair of sunglasses because I feel it is an accessory that can really add to an outfit. This season however my wishlist is full of sunglasses and I am trying to contain myself as much as I can and so far I have done well with just this pair, a square shaped pair of sunglasses by Balenciaga. This is my first squared pair, I have a few wayfarer, round and oval but not ...

I’ve been lusting over a few bags for a long time, one of them is this amazing beauty, the Lulu bag from Saint Laurent. I love the simple, clean design, with gold hardware and its slim rectangular shape. I don’t have a bag in this format, so this is what has been missing in my bag collection…well…and bags other than black and navy, but I guess I’ll solve that in the f ...

This sneakers need no introduction, they are a classic among classics. I used to own this same model on the early 2000’s.

The thing is I have wanted a watch for a long time now but I have an awfully expensive tas ...

Something New: Chanel Tweed Flats

Something I had wanting to own for quite some times had always been a pair of Chanel tweed flats. I have a number of pairs in leather but not one in tweed. Unfortunately for me, there was never a pair left in my size whenever I went to the store and if there was it was not of my liking. As i’ve said before I am not a big fan of the selection of seasonal items my local store carries, in fact ...

Something New: Nike Air Max Thea

If Chile is good in something related to fashion, it has to be sneakers. You find all the ones you want, at the same US prices, and that means in between ten to sixty euros less than what you pay in Europe, sometimes even less! So of course I am doing my thing, and getting them here, and this pair was another one I couldn’t miss. A classic black and white combination, perfect for any outfit! ...

Slip on sneakers are one of the most comfortable options in the whole world. I only own a pair, with this pair it makes two, and I think I could never have enough. They are so comfortable and so versatile that they can be worn with absolutely anything. I was thinking on white first, looking at a bunch of brands, but when I saw this gorgeous ecru color, I was sold! I think white can wait, but for w ...

Something New: Saint Laurent Paris 80 Western Ankle Boots

As you know I hardly wear heels, but when I do I wear classic, timeless, investment pieces that are meant forever. This one of them. I longed for the perfect high heel ankle boots since forever but it was hard to locate the perfect pair. They have to be the right height, they have to be suede, the heel must be thin, they have, must be black. Then there are the details where on the ankle do they st ...
