CELINE SMALL TRIO: What Fits.

To my dearest:

In my last post, I reviewed the Celine Trio Small and the pros and cons of it. But I’m sure many of you wonder what fits inside this bag. I remember myself researching this and reading an abundant amount of blogs and watching a load of videos to find out before I even went to go see it for myself in stores. There may be many posts out there like this one. But I can’t help but want to share with you the wonders of this miraculous Mary Poppins bag. Or if you know Japanese animation like I do, I call this Doraemon’s pocket! (Cause you know… my Trio is cobalt blue, so it links me to think about him.) Despite the size of this bag, I feel like I can fit absolutely anything I need to on a day or night out.

The Trio is soft and flexible, allowing it to mold to the shape of whatever you put in it. It has three pouches of which you can fill to the brim. Whether or not you want it to look bulky or not is up to you. But you can not deny how much it can fit. I can fit all make up essentials: powder pact with mirror, lippie, eyeliner, lash glue, concealer and contour powder pact in one pouch. In the second pouch, I can fit a pair of sunglasses with a soft case, my keys, packet of tissue, and a reusable bag. In the third pouch, I can fit my wallet and my phone along a pair of headphones. Even with the things I listed above, the pouches are not too over filled, except for the pouch with all the make up. It will certainly look bulky, but it will fit everything you would actually need. The small one will certainly not fit a tablet and obviously not a laptop, but then again, one wouldn’t purchase a small Trio to fit those items right?




Although it is a magical bag that can fit everything you practically need, I would steer away from overfilling. One, I don’t like the bulky look. Two, over filling it undeniably kills the posh look it was meant to have. Three, it’s definitely going to take a toll on your strap. (If you don’t know why, read here!) Given the circumstances, I would say to downsize your options. For example, you could limit the amount of the cosmetics you need to carry around. You could also downsize the bulk of your wallet, by using a card pouch instead.

I know it’s controversial that the small Trio can fit a lot, but also if you take a step back, you would say, errr… not really. However, that’s where the appeal of the small Trio lies. It’s just magical in the sense that you don’t have to worry about what you can fit, because it will always work with you. On days that you need the space for more things, you’re given the option to expand on space. And on days that you want that pleasing posh look, just down size your needs a bit and you’ll be given that look. It’s a true – ask and it’ll be given miracle bag! You just have so many options with it! I can not give it more praise.

Now, what are your thoughts on it? I’d love to know what you think! And would you fill it up to fit your needs or do you prefer the more posh look? Leave me a comment and let me know!

    It’s so beautiful and elegant! I’ve been trying to find a simple one to hold small items and necessities. Thanks for the helpful review!

  2. May 4, 2017 / 2:54 PM

    Wow! You fit a ton of items in that little bag. It’s so pretty and would be so lovely to carry around.

  3. May 4, 2017 / 4:16 PM

    Ophelia, I am so jealous of anyone who can carry such a small item in place of a purse! I think what I carry resembles closer to a carry on size!

    Thanks for sharing the contents of your bag. It doesn’t look like it would hold so much! Very informative post!

    love your photos, nicely taken and great post by the way i love the blue bag

  6. May 5, 2017 / 7:45 AM

    Love this bag and it is great to see what you can squeeze in! I love smaller bags, but then the idea of leaving the house without my phone, make-up, hairbrush etc scares me!

  7. May 5, 2017 / 10:41 AM

    That blue is to die for! A Celine bag is on my list and I am going to check this one out, for sure!

  8. May 5, 2017 / 10:48 AM

    Love this bag! It is super cute! I could see my self using this when I spend the day in New Orleans!

  9. May 5, 2017 / 11:10 AM

    Wow! It can definitely fit more than I thought it could! Really going to look into getting one of these!

  10. May 5, 2017 / 12:59 PM

    Nice post! Didn’t know you can fit that much stuff in that bag! Love your phone case and purse too! Your Metro card made me miss traveling in NY lol

    I love how this blue color brings out such a bold statement.

    That bag fits a lot more than I expected. I love the color too!

    You really fit a lot in that little bag !! I have a bigger bag and still can’t seem to fit everything I need

    The blue color is gorgeous! But the size is challenging as I tend to lug stuff around. I swear my shoulder droops on the bag side lol! This one will be handy in my weekend clutch only.

    Magical and beautiful small bag design . Thanks for your review of this product

    Great post

    I’ve been eyeing this bag also !! Great choice of color 🙂

  19. May 5, 2017 / 10:47 PM

    I want one ✔. Now I know with three kids, moms are said to carry their whole house with them with every outing. Tis’ true..but for the moments when I’m without child, for errands better off alone, this sounds like an awesome one. I have a black one from H&M, I know inexpensive..but that’s definitely a thing with mom. Frugality with three kids is a must. Although, mothers day is coming soon..and this sounds like a list maker item. 😉 thanks for sharing!

    Well, you’ve talked me into it! Next stop is my boyfriends brain! Haha beautiful bag!!! I love that it will fit all my stuff!!

  23. May 6, 2017 / 2:36 AM

    Great post. Wow, you really can fit a lot in your bag. I love that chocolate BTW, got it at Whole foods and now I am addicted.

  24. May 6, 2017 / 3:52 AM

    Im a guy so I don’t really have a bag when it comes to this. But I do agree with you. Don’t overfill the bag. It’s like men who keep all the receipts in their wallets and then the wallet falls apart on them because it’s too stuffed. Don’t do that.

  25. May 6, 2017 / 4:46 AM

    Gotta have that Metro Card! I remember when we visited, I had gotten one but didn’t use it all. I ended up just handing it to someone when I left. It still had a bunch left on it!

  26. May 6, 2017 / 3:21 PM

    Wow, well you’re able to fit a lot more than I would expect. Still not enough to be a mama tote though, haha!

  27. May 6, 2017 / 3:23 PM

    Great stuff! I remember reading your post about this bag, and it’s really great to see how much it can take!

    Wow. It’s amazing how much can fit in such a small bag. I love small purses, too.

  30. May 6, 2017 / 11:29 PM

    I’m not big on clutches but these are cute. I love the royal blue color.

  31. May 7, 2017 / 1:46 AM

    This is a beautiful and elegant bag! Very useful too!

  32. May 7, 2017 / 6:06 AM

    I love the color of your Celine Trio, I own one in black! Such a versatile and cute bag, fits perfectly all the essentials!

  33. May 7, 2017 / 6:49 AM

    Although the bag is cute and small in size but it seems to have enough space for the essentials. I would use this bag if visiting a friend but not when out for business or shopping!

  34. May 7, 2017 / 11:19 AM

    I am not a purse king of person, but I think that my wife can use a smaller and more fashionable purse. Hers’ a bit bulky and loaded with junk.

    I love the look of this purse, I think it’s adorable and convenient….I can’t believe how much it can hold!! Thanks so much for sharing, I’ve been in the market for a smaller purse!!

  36. May 7, 2017 / 7:39 PM

    Perfect size and great for taking along all the essentials! So pretty! 🙂

    Cool! Thanks for sharing what fits in the bag, I have been curious. I always bring large bags because I got used to it but there are days wherein I’d love to use bags like this! I really appreciate you showing what we can put in it.

  38. May 8, 2017 / 3:50 AM

    Thank for sharing your Celine trio review. Am also looking for a practical handbag that i could bring along anywhere, and I think this Celine trio will also fit my style. Plus I love the color 🙂

  39. May 8, 2017 / 4:42 AM

    I love little bags. They never get too heavy or full with unnecessary things. This one is a great find!

  40. May 8, 2017 / 7:12 AM

    That’s such a lovely little bag. I do love stylish Mary Poppins’ like bags such as this one, but I need room for a flask of coffee too! 😉

    Such a great and fancy post! I really loved it!

  42. May 9, 2017 / 9:25 AM

    Gosh that little thing fits loads of stuff in. I always shy away from small bags cos I have so much stuff to carry with me but that’s a right little TARDIS.

  45. May 22, 2017 / 3:35 AM

    I like it small and not overfilling too! For the larger items I have a backpack and a husband, lol!
