Purse Picks: Trapeze

Purse Picks: Trapeze

When thinking of the word "trapeze," a handbag worth more than multiple months' rent wasn't always the first thing that came to mind. But we can all thank Celine's Trapeze Tote - the "it" bag for bloggers and fashionistas everywhere - for changing that.

Truth be told, I love this shape. It's unique and a little bit quirky, which is why, I suppose, it's become hugely popular. Plus, it holds everything. And for someone who carries their life around in their purse (aka me), it's perfect. What's not perfect is the price tag on the real deal and my yearly salary's ability to afford it. Fortunately I'm all over that whole "look for less" thing and am happy to share with you these four Celine-inspired bags today...all for under $90! I'm thinking the white/straw one is my favorite, and totally perfect for summer!

On another note, the hubs and I are off to California tomorrow morning for a week to visit his family! Excited doesn't even come close to describing my feelings about our little spring break trip and I can't wait to take in all that the West Coast has to offer!

Have a wonderful weekend!


P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway for your chance to win a watch of your choice from The Watch Company!


  1. Have a great time in California! Where are you headed? I LOVE the west coast!!

  2. I guess it is kind of a backwards shape for a bag, but I love that you can fit everything in without damaging the bag! It's like the appeal of a basic tote bag but sexier.

  3. I love this shape too! Perfect to carry all my belongings.. haha!
    I think I'm lovin that army green one.
    Can I come to Cali too?
    Happy weekend friend! : )


  4. I want a bag like this so badly, I am thinking its going to be the first post grad working girl present to myself!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Of course, I want the white one, as always :o)

  6. Super cute picks - loving the top two. Although I would really love to afford a Celine back at some point in my career...dreaming.


  7. I NEED the beige one. Great picks love!

  8. I'm obsessed with the blush Aldo bag!!! I came across it a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love. I also featured it in one of my blog posts! Great minds think alike :)

  9. LOVE this post. I think its great that you highlight that not all of us have or WANT to spend the big bucks on the coveted Celine bag... loving the alternatives and I think some are even cuter than the Celine! XX!

  10. p.s. the floral interior of the Aldo bag is ADORBS!
