Paris purchase: Celine Trio bag in Navy

Remember this wishlist I posted about before I left for Paris?  Well, I'm happy to report that I managed to cross off an item that was high on my list: the Celine Trio bag:

 First, I had non luck at the Rue Francois 1er store, and may I say, I wasn't very happy with the customer service there...They mentioned I might have some luck at their Rue de Grenelle store, so since Lil' Brigs #1 and #2 were asleep in the pram, I went there the next day
 The SA's were absolutely LOVELY at the Rue de Grenelle store! I'm wearing: Doo.Ri black jersey dress, Chanel 2.55 reissue with GHW and Nike sneakers (not pictured), and a huge smile...
 The Celine on my favourite chair in the Paris apartment (wish I could've kidnapped it in my suitcase)
 The navy regular Trio with a little souvenir from Ladurée...
 How cute is that keyring? I very much doubt it'll ever hang off my Celine outside my house, but I just couldn't resist it.
 On Lil' Brigs kids Eames chair (so yes, it is still a Regular)
 Trio of zips...
 With my usual accessories (Ray Ban folding Wayfarer sunglasses available here and here, and Swiss Legend Karamica watch), and a birthday present to myself: Ek Thongprasert moonbeam and jet black crystal bracelet (similar here and here).

Happy Monday to you all!

  1. You look great indeed! I love that Trio, it looks almost black. Nice choice but then I can't say otherwise as that's actually the one I will receive soon I hope...
    I'm sensitive to Customer service and I agree the SA at the Céline store on rue de Grenelle are very helpful.

    1. Thanks. The Trio does look almost black IRL too, in fact, I had the navy and the black Large Trio in front of me, and the SA didn't know which was which, but I could tell from the zip fabric. Where are you ordering yours from? :)

  2. Ooo such a lovely purchase darling, and I love the Laduree key rings, I just recently returned from London for my 21st and I bought the pastel pink version.

  3. so lovely! following u :) wish you good monday also :D

  4. This bag seems very popular - what is the attraction do you think? I mean this as a serious question and not sarcasm. It looks pretty but quite a simple design and I was just wondering if it was the look or functionality that drew you to it? I like your style and you always have great taste in clothes and accessories.

    1. That is a fair question :) I like the Trio because of its simple design. Sometimes I love the minimalist look, but often I like how simple this design is, so that it can be worn with fancier/dressier items without making the whole outfit 'too much', if that makes sense? The functionality also appealed to me, although I'm not sure how often I'll be able to use just one pouch...And most importantly, it can be slung across the body, which is practically the only way I wear my bags nowadays, even when out for dinner (having both kids with me is usually my excuse, but I think now I've gotten too used to it like that). Hmmm...hope I made sense with all that waffling!


  5. Thanks hehe that makes sense. Definitely understand the cross-body attraction. And I love that you got it in navy.

  6. Oh my! That key chain is utterly cute and so perfect on your lovely new Trio! I'm loving your bracelet, watch and sunglasses too. Talk about the most perfect accessories!

  7. Such a lovely trio, agree with you that the service at Rue Francois sucks.. bought a trapeze at that store (no choice as the one I wanted can't be found anywhere else) and the SA behaved as if I owed it to him!

  8. Nice bag <3
