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!
