Celebrity Bag: Reese Witherspoon Carries Ricky

Before I get into the topic of today’s post, I’d like to give you peeps a brief update of what’s going on In the last few days, I have again ceased regular blogging. That’s because I am actually doing a major household Spring Cleaning which involved sorting boxes of clothes and shoes as well as...
Valentino Rocks Dutch Royalty

Valentino Rocks Dutch Royalty

It’s always a sight to see Royals carrying designer bags. Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, is rarely seen in designer bags that are easily identifiable. But Queen Maxima of Netherlands was spotted carrying the Valentino Rockstud Leather Clutch recently for the birthday celebration of Denmark’s Queen Margrethe. This clutch is so far one of the...

Celebrity Bag: Nicky Hilton’s Canvas and Leather Hermes Kelly

It’s very refreshing to see women like Nicky Hilton toting an Hermes Kelly made from a combination of canva and leather. Hermes rarely ever makes these combination Kelly bags anymore these days. And I also was told that not many clients appreciate the combined canvas- leather styles as compared to the all- leather ones. Price...

How to Buy Those Elusive Mansur Gavriel Bags

When Mansur Gavriel announced that their bags were back in stock through their instagram account, it was buying pandemonium online. Within 20 minutes, all their bags had sold out. Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon are fans of this brand, contributing to the marketing success of MG. But while it was impossible to purchase any MG bags...
Bag Review: That Camelia Classic Flap at Chanel

Bag Review: That Camelia Classic Flap at Chanel

Season after season, my eyes just grow wider when I find out the price of a Chanel classic flap bag. If I had kept my first, small sized one from 1992 (heh don’t start counting back to find out my age lol), I’d have made a killing now if I sell it today. Alas, I...
You are a Beautiful Bag, but...

You are a Beautiful Bag, but…

Bags today are not just about aesthetics anymore. Luxury goods consumers have become very discerning these days, and designer bag brands need to keep stepping up to meet consumers’ expectations or this is a factor that would make them lose out on sales to other competing brands. A bag no longer sells based on the...
A Gastronomic Adventure in New York

A Gastronomic Adventure in New York

This Easter, I went with my favorite peeps (la famiglia) to New York. And while the trip was supposed to be purely for pleasure, I managed to make it a pretty fruitful one because of the occasional work meetings in between family time (I’m real grateful they still haven’t thrown me out hahaha). One thing...
A Weekend Bag Bargain!

A Weekend Bag Bargain!

It has been such a loooong time since I actually last went “surf- shopping” for bags and shoes and all things nice I think with all that traveling, it leaves no more time for surfshopping. When I am back in town, I try my hardest to spend time with my family (before they forget what...

MFW: Bally Brings it On this FW 2015

Bally, under the direction of designer Pablo Coppola, is on fire!!! I don’t need to explain much with words because these photos from the collection presentation said it all.

MFW: Furla’s Color Explosion for FW2015

It has been a crazy four days here in Milan during fashion week. Traffic is horrific, and though it is sunny of late, it also gets real chilly at night, and wearing heels don’t help either (boooo paaaain). But it’s all worth it when I see collections that are truly worth doing all this for...
