As some of you know, I’ve been marinating on which new bag to add to my family for several months now. I think any girl will understand my mental conflict: What’s going to remain a classic but has personality? Functional vs. fashionable or both? Size? What don’t I have in my collection? The list went on and on, especially when deciding on an investment piece.
I have always kept a short wish list, which is where I started my journey. After countless hours on Purse Forum, many visits to Valentino, Celine and Chanel and even a Facebook poll, I narrowed it down to the Chanel boy bag vs. the new Celine trapeze mini. Ultimately I went with the Celine for several reasons. While I love the boy, the trapeze has been on my list for quite sometime. It’s classic yet knows how to nail color saturation, and the mini size sealed the deal being perfect for my frame.
As any girl will attest, it ultimately comes down to sheer emotional attachment and for me, the rich cobalt and classic design of the mini trapeze stole my heart. I can’t wait to pull this little baby out all season for a happy pop of color during the dismal Winter months!
