Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: haul, i bought this, Céline Trio mini
Céline Trio mini bag, £630, Céline at Selfridges, London.

Welcome the newest bag to the Daisybutter wardrobe. My beautiful red Céline Trio!

Many weeks of saving later, flanked by four of my best friends, I finally surrendered to my handbag obsession and bought my Céline Trio. If you’ve been hankering for the same bag, you’ll already know that the information available about this bag online is pretty sketchy and difficult to sift through. #MichelleProblems

I finally settled on the smaller version (£630 - March 2014) after trying the larger one on (£730) simply because it fitted my frame a little better and has enough room to store all the essentials. For reference, I’m pretty much 5” nothing and am pretty petite overall! My iPod Touch, phone, credit card holder, keys and Oyster card holder all slot neatly into the three compartments, and I’ve also test-run it for fitting my Nintendo 3DS XL in. Perfect.

The bag is made of lambskin leather with gold hardware and can be unbuttoned to create clutch bags, but I much prefer it with all three parts attached. Inside is a brushed self-fabric lining to keep your belongings safe and protected. Sleek, structured and minimal, I can’t wait to spend my 2014 with her, not to mention I opted for red, the luckiest colour of them all!

Finally, as I know you’ll ask, I purchased mine in Selfridges, London - the concession is up on the 3rd floor I believe - and the assistants were other-worldly friendly. Such chic enablers!

  1. It's a lovely colour but I don't think I could justify spending that much on one bag. I get bored so easily that I like to switch my handbags around, so am more of a cheap and cheerful handbag kind of girl, myself.

    1. I'm just such a handbag girl that I'd rather skimp on other things and indulge in a bi-annual expensive bag instead! I wear about 4 handbags week-to-week, it's just nice to add another to the collection (:

    1. I knew but hadn't seen them in real life before as they make the Trio so hard to access. I absolutely love her, would totes recommend if you're considering getting one ;)

  11. Woo hoo, I can't help but smile at this post! It's so pretty and I can't wait to see it in future outfit posts. The birthday one was a good un! That day was pretty fun I have to admit - and I can't wait to do it all over again soon when we've saved a bit more money - so much fun (and we're such bad influences on each other!).
