This week, the final vote ending up being between Sooyoung and…Sooyoung! While she had 2 very nice outfits, you the readers decided it was her airport style at Gimpo was the better of the 2, and we’re here to talk about what made it so good!

Sooyoung started with a loose denim top, an unusual but fashionable choice these days, especially coming into the warmer months, and she made the smart move of not pairing denim with denim. Instead, she paired it with a high waisted black-and-pink geometric  skirt, whose calf-length terminus allowed her legs to be on full display, much to the delight of her fans. Her shoes were a bit of an oddity: wedge’s with a chunky sandal design, in neon silver, and even matching silver socks to go alongside it. Her accessories consisted of her Kenzo leather bag and her Ray Ban’s.

Congrats to Sooyoung for winning, and as always, thank you all for voting!

Review: Céline Trapeze Bag

Review on Céline’s Trapeze Bag as seen with Sooyoung.

Many of Céline’s bags have long been overshadowed by the infamous ‘Luggage‘ tote. For those who want a ‘rarer’ and more exclusive bag yet still very practical, read on as Céline’s Trapeze might just be the bag for you.

The bag comes in either full leather or half canvas, half leather, or pony hair. Most usually opt for the bag to be in a mixture of both leathers, myself included, simply because it makes it somewhat lighter. The middle part of the bag where the flap is,  is usually in leather and the winged sides, which arguably Céline made famous, is in canvas. The bag also comes in a huge range of colour combinations. You can get in a solid one colour or you can have it bi-coloured or tri-coloured. My Trapeze is tri-coloured in burgundy, maroon, and in a light brownish grey. The bag comes in either silver hardware like Sooyoung’s, or gold hardware.

Made in Italy, the bag is very spacious, one of the most spacious bags I own. There is a long zip which stretches on until one of the winged sides when you open the bag. A flap in the inside of the bag which has two pockets, a narrow, vertical pocket and right next to it, a wider horizontal pocket sits nicely. At the bag of the back sits a zipped compartment. One of the best features featured in this particular bag is the removable shoulder strap. This allows the bag to be either a tote bag or a shoulder bag, courtesy of the removable strap!

Personally, I like to use this bag in areas where pick pocketing is very common. This is one of the ‘safest’ bags I own simply because it takes quite a bit of effort to open the bag. First, you have to flip the clasp down, twist the buckle horizontally to the correct side, and the bag finally opens! This feature of the bag has both its pros and cons as some might find it quite a bit of hassle. In my opinion, the bag is considerably light as compared to my Hermès bags. However, wearing the bag on the crook of my arm does ache after a while and also gives me red marks.

To be honest, I don’t quite remember how much I bought the bag for but a little bit of researching tells me I would have bought it for around $2600 in Fall 2013. As usual, Céline has marked up their prices now and as of May 2014, the Trapeze bag starts at $2950. The bag is quite expensive however I do prefer the Trapeze as compared to other similar priced bags like Saint Laurent’s Sac Du Jour Tote.

Rating: 4.5/5

Unfortunately, Céline does not sell it’s products online yet. Head on over to the official website to see the colours they offer for the Trapeze this season.

With another week of voting, Seohyun achieved the OTW honor again with another of her simple chic outfits, leading the 2nd place by a whopping number of 180 votes.

Continuing the color scheme of last week’s ensemble, she wore a pair of cream pink shorts with a pair of of striped espadrilles. The pair of shoes somewhat coupled with the color of Seohyun’s pastel blue shirt, placing more significance and vibrancy on the light colored outfit. Lastly, Seohyun hovered on a white bag to complete the body of summery, delightful attire.

Seems like Jessica has some serious competition as the OTW queen, please continue to vote and let’s see who will continue to be the most fashionable member!

It seems like the birthday festivities for Seohyun isn’t over yet because Soshified Style is glad to gift her second consecutive Outfit of the Week!

Winning with a lead of 30 votes, our readers and our team agreed that Seohyun’s minimalistic going-home outfit deserves the prize.

Along with her creamy complexion, she wore a palette of monochromatic neutrals which is very easy on the eyes. Even though it may seem like she forewent the vibrant colors, she didn’t skip the accents to her outfit. She dressed up her cami and skirt with a pair of platform sandals with iridescent straps. Finally, she carried her Candy bag by Furla and thanks to the red detailing on the bag, the outfit got a pop of color – something very much needed in a neutral and basic getup.

If Seohyun keeps this up, she might be able to snatch Jessica’s crown as queen of the Outfit of the Weeks. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves and stay tuned for next week’s winner!

This week, after a very close poll, we have Seohyun walking away as this week’s winner for Outfit of the Week!

Ever the subdued type, even in fashion, Seohyun nevertheless made a splash to both you and us here at Style. She started it off with a simple white top with grey splashes, a popular look these days. She paired it with a pair of lightly distressed stone washed jeans, looser than usual, and no doubt allowed her legs to “breath” more.  Her feet were adorned with a pair of white-and-blue leather loafers, an unusual look for the girls, but something that definitely fits with the outfit. Her accessories consisted of a Soin 350 Tod Beige Tote and a pair of leopard print sunglasses. Overall, a very good look for a very good maknae.

Congrats to Seohyun for winning this weeks Outfit of the Week, and thank you all for voting!

Review: Chloé Marcie Medium Satchel
POSTED IN Reviews, Shoulder Bags, Sooyoung | TAGGED:

A review on Chloé’s Marcie Medium Satchel as seen with Sooyoung.

“I want another one of these in another colour.” 

After a full inspection of my Monday morning package that was all I had to say. From the first time I laid eyes on the Marcie I knew I had to have one and of course with the sale season in full swing I managed to nab this beauty with 30% off. Two of the main features that drew me to the Marcie for me were the: supple grained calfskin leather and sophisticated satchel design thus making it one of my favourite go-to bags.

1

Material:

The Marcie is not a heavy bag and the colours that Chloé offer are easy to pair with many outfits. Though a relatively new bag to my collection, I have used the Marcie quite a lot since I purchased it last month and so far the leather has shown no wear yet. Made in Italy, the feel of the leather is quite soft almost like the feel of butter yet durable. Even though the colour (I purchased – Red) is one that can easily stain, none of my clothes (in particular my jeans) have rubbed off on the bag nor has it darkened.

2

Details and Design:

The images can only show so much but I was extremely impressed with the workmanship put into the bag through the raised stitch accents, wrapped handles, gold hardware and the concealed closures. When actually handling the bag, you can really appreciate these details and understand the pricing behind the Marcie (or in my case justify why I spent so much on a bag).

Admittedly the bag was bigger than I expected but to serve everyday purposes it fit the bill. As measured the bag’s dimensions are approx.11.50″ height x 14.25″ width x 4.25″ depth, and easily fits my phone, sunglasses, keys, water bottle, iPad, wallet, make-up and notepad. It won’t fit a laptop so you would have to get the Marcie Large for that. The interior contains a patch pocket which easily holds your phone and a zip welt pocket to hold any small nicknacks you don’t want to lose. 

The bag has 2 handles, the leather wrapped carry handle and the shoulder strap. The shoulder strap fortunately is detachable so if you want to use the bag as a tote you can remove the straps. What I also really like about the bag design and shoulder strap is that you can carry the bag on the side as well as a cross-body bag. When using the carry handle, I find that it sits quite comfortably on my wrist and my inner elbow and won’t dig in harshly into my skin as other bags do.

Consensus: 

The bag truly is a fine example of good craftsmanship and quality. It is a beautiful bag that offers the perfect size and finishing touch to almost any everyday casual outfit. It is highly likely that I will purchase another one of these in another colour (perhaps Sooyoung’s lovely tan one) however the price is quite bothersome. Weighing it against other bags that are around the same price, personally I would prefer to buy other bags such as Saint Laurent’s Duffle 6 Bag than Chloé’s Marcie. My advice get it on sale or at a discount.

Rating: 4.5/5
