Bag Review: Balenciaga Le Dix by A.Wang

A few days ago, I posted the newest Balenciaga bag that we will see hitting the store shelves in a few months on my instagram account.   The Le Dix is the first bag that was designed by Alexander Wang for Balenciaga. It is really a far cry from the hardware studded bags that we’ve...

Celebrity Bag: What Simon Cowell’s Baby Mama Carried

If you’ve had your head in the sand in the last month, you wouldn’t have known that Lauren Silverman had caught the heart of ruthless Simon Cowell. Yes she has. After a quickie divorce, Lauren is now officially free to date Simon– Lauren also happens to be his baby mama which probably explains why Cowell...

Almost Fool-Proof Fake Hermes Birkins: Buyer Beware!

I’ve not written a post about Hermes birkin authentications in the longest time and I think it’s about right I blog about this again. Hermes birkins have become so ridiculously in demand over the last few years that there is also a very significant rise in the number of counterfeit Hermes bags sold on a...

Studded Winged Bag Face-Off

Today I am pitting two rocker chick studded winged bags against each other. As you know, the winged bag is probably the most desirable style of late. The Valentino Rockstud Trapeze Bag: has studs on both sides and a snap- lock clasp is made of smooth, scratch- prone leather is more of a tote, a...

The Bag Battle of the Olympias

There are two Olympias in the bag world– Charlotte Olympia and Olympia Le Tan. Charlotte Olympia is known for her perspex clutch bags (and shoes), while Olympia Le Tan is known for her embroidered “novel” clutch bags. So when I saw this perspex book clutch, I got confused at first. Wait, which Olympia made what...

Celebrity Bag: Sofia Vergara Loves Hermes & LV

We all know celebrities love their Hermes birkins, but I love how Sofia Vergara made sure not to leave out her other favorite brand, Louis Vuitton, by hooking an LV charm onto her Hermes Birkin! Everybody loves to dress up their birkin– from twilly scarves to bag charms, there are so many ways to personalize...

Beijing and the Opposite House

Four and a half hours of sleeping soundly on the plane got me off to a good start here in Beijing. Hats off to my dear friend Jonathan who had taken great lengths to ensure that I was not going to “drown” in the enormity of the Beijing airport. He was absolutely on the mark...

Celebrity Bag: Kate Moss Totes Goyard

Goyard remains a very popular brand choice for a summer getaway bag. The Saint Louis tote in particular is the shopper of choice– especially because of its barely- there weight. Kate Moss and her daughter Lila Grace are the latest celebrity- celebu-spawn photographed carrying the tote while on holiday in Spain.   There are more...

Bag Review: Prada Top Handle Leather Winged Tote

Do you notice how the “winged” tote has become a staple in many a fashion house’s bag collection of late? I attribute this to the popularity of the Celine luggage tote. Prada has definitely made the style look good by keeping it clean and simple with this winged top handle tote. Prada’s structured bags with...

Bag Review: Gucci Bamboo Top Handle Bag

Do you still remember the Gucci bamboo¬†collection?¬†It has been there for decades, as bamboo handles have actually become synonymous with the brand. It was only in the last two years that I’ve actually begun re-developing that love for Gucci bamboo again. This particular piece caught my eye– also because it has the striking jaguar print...

Celebrity Bag: Angelina Jolie’s Louis Vuitton Love

I always have my eye on Angelina Jolie. Especially when she is carrying a bag. She’s always been, in my opinion, spot on when it comes to her bag choices. I am quite certain that she gets given bags left, right, and center, but for her to know how to edit the pieces she gets...

A Lot of Kate Spade Fun!

The thing about quirky and fun bags is this– they can’t always be too big. I have always followed this as a fashion rule: bags should not engulf or overwhelm. They can enhance your look but you should not be swimming in the bag *unless you are off to the beach haha*. I love Kate...
