You know what’s the worst thing that can happen after you’ve purchased your favorite designer handbag? And especially when the bag is expensive. It’s when something breaks within a week or month.
Even when it breaks within five months, it’s heart-breaking.
Instead of joy and happiness, the whole experience taste bitter.
At BRAGMYBAG we heard this a lot – the chains are damaged, the leather strap broke, the serial code tag in the interior is missing, leather is starting to wear off and so on…
You need to take your bag and go back to the store to check it out. What a drag! And when you get bad service, it’s even worst. If they tell you they will send it back for repair, you will miss your bag for weeks.
We talked to Gabriela the other day, after we posted an article about the Celine Trio Bag. Her leather strap broke after a few months of use. She did not even carried heavy stuff, but only her keys and small wallet, so weight was not the issue.
But there are a lot of bags with thin strap, and we need to be very careful. Gabriela went back to the store, luckily she bought it at Neiman Marcus, and they were kind enough to change the bag. But because she had bad experience with the Celine Trio Bag, she picked the Proenza Schouler PS11 Bag (via Elyse Walker for $1950 USD).
The PS11 bag is a great choice though; it’s also stunning, spacious, functional and great as an everyday bag. However, the Celine Trio Bag is still the favorite among fashionista’s, it’s popular and gorgeous.
Sometimes you can get a designer bag that breaks within a few months, we even heard this from Chanel products or Dior products. But in your case, what will you do? Switch to another brand or get it repaired? Tell your story below.Other Brands
The Celine Trio Bag is up for grabs, ladies! Today, we are going to dig deeper into the details and talk about the different colors and materials used to bring our favorites into life.
First of all, we are going to talk about the nitty-gritty parts so that we could evaluate our future purchases and make the most out of them. First of all, the Celine Trio is available in some unique variations of primary material – in other words, you can have your fill of different types of leather for this bag (Goatskin, Diamond Jacquard, Shiny Goatskin, Laminated Smooth Lambskin and Smooth Lambskin). Corresponding to these types of material are the colors that are available, which could also influence your choice pretty much.
The Goatskin Trio Bag is beautifully coarse and textured, and is available in colors of Deepsea (a beautiful, deep blue hue), White, Scarlet, Alizarin (a brighter red), and Palm. The Diamond Jacquard, on the other hand, may be the odd one out of the bunch, but don’t be fooled – it has some serious flair too! It is made of knit, lambskin trimmings and synthetic lining, available a red and electric blue diamond jacquard pattern.
The Shiny Goatskin Trio Bag is also textured (but with a bit more sheen to it), and is available in a beautiful Black. If you’re up for some Laminated Smooth Lambskin, you could get yours in an edgy Silver (shimmer in style!). Last but not the least, the Smooth Lambskin can be yours in colors of Red, Beige and Navy Blue. So many to kinds to choose from, so little time! We know the feeling all too well. So, what is it going to be? Have you decided what your next purchase would be?
All of the bags (in different materials) are all available for €780 EUR in small size and smooth or goatskin leather. For the large size its priced at €850 EUR. Colors: beige, indigo, navy blue, burgundy, terracotta dark green and black. Get one (or two… or a lot) now via Celine boutique. Rock it, girl!
The Celine Trio Bag is a true time-tested, much-adored handbag. There are two reasons for this, in our opinion, it’s affordable, functional and it has a style that you can match in any outfit.
This bag will never go-out-of-style, we can’t think of a season that the Celine Trio Bag is unavailable. Even better, there are times that Celine re-design a new Trio Bag, usually with one or two slight adjustments.
The Trio Bag, as it name says, has three compartments. You can structure your essentials very easily and not only that, this bag is large enough to use as an everyday bag and small enough to carry in the evenings. How wonderful is that!
And it got style – the minimalistic design, the little Celine logo on the front, it’s chic and stunning. Carry it on your shoulder and you will not go unnoticed. The craftsmanship of Celine is all in the details.
Sling it on your shoulder, put your small wallet inside, papers, documents, perhaps your passport and flight ticket if you are going on a holiday. It’s easy and very useful.
Because Celine changes colors every season, we’d like to share some the new shades. The new colors include black, burgundy and green, blue, beige and red. With a price tag of 730 euro for the small one and 780 euro for the large one, it’s a very reasonable investment for a Celine Bag. You will need to put more on the table for a WOC, that’s for sure.

And so, are you in for a hunt?
When it comes to buying a bag, one of the most important things to consider is what will fit inside. Of course we care about the aesthetics and the quality, but the main purpose of a handbag is to carry things. Sometimes I end up with a bag that is a bottomless pit, while other times, I end up with a bag that barely fits the bare necessities.
I wanted to start a new series, What Fits, to showcase some of our favorite bags and what fits inside it. We're hoping these posts will help you decide if a certain bag will work for you or if you need to pass on it instead. To kick it off, I wanted to start with one of the most lovedCéline bags, the Trio.
Slide 1 / 4
While the Trio is highly coveted and carried, many worry about how much this three-pouch bag can carry. The best part, though is that this bag carries so much more than you would think, which has always pleasantly surprised me. The items above are what fits in this bag without it being overly stuffed, and what I carried in this bag last week.
- Lambertson Truex card case with credit cards and business cards
- Versace sunglasses
- Louis Vuitton bracelet
- Gin Gin candies (the BEST!)
- Kind Bar
- Car keys
- Chanel Lipstick
- Fresh Lip Balm
- iPhone 5S with Mophie Case
- hair ties
- Kleenex pouch
- small Advil

As you can see, I have a lot of items in my bag. I separate my items into three categories and then I put them into the pouches. You would think this much stuff would make my bag bulge out awkwardly look super stuffed, but that simply isn't the case. That's why I think of this bag as a Mary Poppins pouch.
Slide 3 / 4
The front pocket has my two lip glosses, and you can see their outline a bit on the pouch; that would happen no matter how many items you have in the bag. The cool thing about the Trio is you can remove the pouches and use a single pouch, two pouches or all three.
Slide 4 / 4
Last I checked, the Céline Trio costs just over $1,050. There is a larger size as well, but I love the original size. Fun fact: if you own more than one, you can switch out the pouches with your other bags, which I love doing with my two trios--it makes them multicolored.
