Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Marly MM

It has been a long time since I last reviewed a Louis Vuitton bag. I know, I know, this is a brand I’ve always had a special soft spot for and I’ve actually neglected to write about it. So it’s time to give the brand some more loving. Apart from having posted a few LV...
Bag Review: Tod's Military Bag

Bag Review: Tod’s Military Bag

The smaller the bag of late, the better. But the thing is, “small” is relative. For me, the perfect small size would allow me to bring my phone, a phone charger, my powder compact, lipstick, wallet, and my keys.

It is the latest bag collection from Gucci called the Jackie Soft which features the signature barrel piston lock, and it looks like Cate Blanchett is a fan of the buttery soft tote in leather!

Celebrity Bag: Chloe Moretz Skateboards in Chanel

Celebrity Bag: Chloe Moretz Skateboards in Chanel

Back in the late 90s when most of you readers were just wee ones (haha including myself haha *in denial*), Chanel was a brand that was reserved for the more “mature” set.

Bag Review: Moschino Leather Jacket Backpack

Bag Review: Moschino Leather Jacket Backpack

Thwap me for saying this, but I’ve always thought that backpacks should be carried by the younger set. I don’t know why that perception has been instilled in me but I still can’t help but shake that off each time I find a cute backpack that I want to have. And then I keep thinking...
