Travelog: Visiting Lu Focaro in Torre di Palme

Today, I did something I’ve always wanted to do– drive to another region in Italy 🙂 Since I am in Milan a few days before fashion week begins, I decided to go back to one of the most special places I have ever visited, thanks to the Tod’s family (Claudio,...

Ciao from Milano! Got into the gloomy city around 4p after a long 18 hour travel (layover included). I always feel light- hearted and happy when I’m back here. Been fortunate to live just a few blocks from the Duomo, where all the action happens 🙂 My first dinner in...

I cannot believe I managed to cram 1 month’s worth of clothing and other stuff for fashion week in 2 suitcases in 5 hours lol!! Put it this way, I hope this time around, I don’t get any more surprises when I open my suitcases. Lol last season I don’t know how I ended up...
Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

As you get older like me (ouch!), you will find yourself wanting to carry bags with less weight. A month ago, I went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and saw the cutest mini bags. They are lightweight and easy to carry because of the shoulder strap which works for crossbody wear. Alongside the classic mini...
Dog Days with Thom Browne's Hector Tote

Dog Days with Thom Browne’s Hector Tote

One of my favorite instagram accounts that I follow is of a dog. Yup, not of a style blogger, of relating to travel, but of a dog 😀 Because the photos of this dog cracks me up biiig time especially on days that are difficult or stressful! He is a bulldog and his account name...

Travelog: 24 Hours in Taipei, The Bag Hag Way!

I have been to Taipei twice in my adult life before this current one. I was confined to going around in only a few places that time, also perhaps because I was not really free in the afternoons to explore much. This time though, I came with my friends Erika and Lesley, and we were...
New Bags Alert: Gabriela Hearst Nina and Demi Bag

New Bags Alert: Gabriela Hearst Nina and Demi Bag

It was sometime back in March that I first heard of Gabriela Hearst. But it was awhile again before I remembered about it because I had written it on one of the pages of my datebook towards the end of fashion week. I don’t always look back on the doodles on my datebook if the...

The Bag Hag’s Spuddie (Nose): An Update Over a Year Later

My Dearest Reader, I do wonder if you are still with me at this time, because I haven’t really been updating my blog for quite some time. I don’t know about you but I feel as if instagram had become today’s main social medium of choice, and it seems easier and more accessible to work...
Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Mono Backpack

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Mono Backpack

And then, there were 2! Just 2 seasons ago, Louis Vuitton came out with the mini version of their monogram backpack, modified the design, and changed the vachetta trims into black leather. I personally thought the bag was sooo cute and actually quite easy to carry, and the only thing that made me think twice...
Bag Review: The Chanel Denim Classic Bag for FW2016

Bag Review: The Chanel Denim Classic Bag for FW2016

Everytime I say to myself that I’m done with Chanel bags, I find myself eating those very words. This coming September 2016, Chanel is releasing this beautiful denim quited bag. Many of you might say that denim is not worth the purchase because of the little difference in price compared to that of the same...
Gucci of the Past and Present

Gucci of the Past and Present

A few years ago, then Creative Director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, designed the Jackie Soft shoulder bag which first came out in pink, mustard, and sky blue. I loved the pink version, although it was not a bag that I carried often because I worry about getting it dirty. But each time I take the...
Travelog: Trouble in Oakland

Travelog: Trouble in Oakland

Two nights ago, my family and I decided to drive over to Oakland for some authentic Chinese food. We have been coming to Oakland Chinatown for nearly 30 years just to eat at one of our old haunts, without any remarkable incident. The restaurant is located along the 8th street in a normally busy area...
