I spend a ton of time on the PurseForum checking out members bag reveals, and trust me, it’s something you don’t want to miss. Each time a member reveals a new acquisition, it seems the purchase is being undressed, from the ribbon on the box, to the sleeper bag, to finally revealing the new bag itself. I did a little shopping over the weekend, and before I knew it, I was walking out of the Celine store with a new bag.

I decided my reveal should be a production, with my favorite sweets and my favorite new arm candy. Watch my new baby come to life!

Celine Trapeze Reveal

And now for more details! I own a few different Celine styles, but the Trapeze has long been on my radar and I hadn’t added it to my collection yet. Initially, I went to the Celine store with one purpose (to help my sister find a new bag), but just like a homing device, something began to call my name. I own so many bags, but whenever I add a new one to my collection, I want it to be different from everything else I own, and this Trapeze bag fit the criteria. I’m not typically drawn to calf hair, but the flamingo calf hair front flap and green sides work so beautifully that it was impossible to say no. Pair it with the sleek black calf leather, and I found the Celine bag of my dreams.

So what did I do? I left the store, and I probably should have kept walking. Initially, I did. We walked half a block away, and then I realized I couldn’t be without this bag. I went right back and bought it, and not a second has gone by that I don’t look at my newest addition and find myself swooning.

Price is $3,750 via Celine.

  • laura

    If I hear somebody say “coral calf hair” my first thought is “tacky but this bag is the opposite – it’s beautiful. Enjoy!

  • BNOC

    Megs–It looks like we have something in common here. I too have made a semi-impulsive purchase at Celine under the pretext of helping someone else choose a bag, and then cruised over to that oh so conveniently located Lauduree for a pastel-boxed treat :) That is particularly genius because there’s something so magically French about splurging at Chloe or Celine and then riding that high over to an elegant little pattisserie. I can’t think of a much better afternoon. Your new Trapeze is perfection!

    • RIGHT?! After I went back to get the bag it only seemed fitting that I picked up some Laduree as well!

  • Lilly

    I am so jealous, that bag is gorgeous.

  • weaslgrl

    haha megs that’s why I try to stay out of those stores. The same thing happened to me at Bottega last year — got 2 blocks away & went back for the classic black calfskin Roma. Your gorgeous new bag makes me wish I had gone for something more adventurous! Congratulations.

    • You picked a perfect classic – next time you can go a little bolder! Your bag is a stunner too

  • sara

    Very cute video. Love the color as well!

  • v.couture

    I love love love. Everytime I go shopping all the SA’s try to tell me about their new upcoming bags and I describe it before they can or some don’t even know about new releases and I tell them all about purseblog. I’m here everyday.

    Congrats on the bag!!, the Celine trapeze has the perfect shape!!!, by the way what did your sister buy?

    • She got a grey Trapeze – it’s stunning! We will take photos to share it as well

  • Sophie Proust

    Love the video. But in this case — wherein you are like a rocket-propelled missile and the Celine store is your target — the correct phrase is “homing device,” not “honing device.” :) Enjoy the new bag.

  • John

    I don’t know what I found more enjoyable, the unveiling video or the bag itself! The video was just so fun to watch, and the bag is just beautiful. Congratulations!

  • Grace

    i am currently researching and want to get a celine trapeze. i can’t find my favorite royal blue anymore and sales said it’s old color. what else color you recommend? i saw orange and yellow for winter 2013. Tks.

    Recently I was REALLY low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!! – tr7l
