bag it


The Celine Trio has all the elusive qualities that define an "it" bag: an elegant, streamlined shape, an understated logo, scarce availability, and a high price tag. And, of course, it has spawned some less expensive but very viable lookalikes, such as this one from Steven Alan. It also comes in black.

Rachael Ruddick's Le Reve Pochette Clutch (also on Shopbop) is another alternative to the Trio (if there can possibly be an alternative to this gorgeous bag).

I've been LUSTING after this Celine bag for some time now, mostly since I saw this picture of it in yellow: http://pinterest.com/pin/330029478913476911/. I couldn't even tell it was the Celine bag right away, but I kept searching and searching until finally...

In any case, it (and the Steven Alan) are grossly out of my budget. I was desperately seeking a small, yellow, crossbody, and settled on this adorable Hobo version: http://www.hobobags.com/Mara/pd/cl/6148/np/-1/p/2105.html. Not at all the same or even very similar, but it scratched the itch.

On another note, Marlien, I love your sensibility.

Cheers,
Helen
