Much Ado about Hermes Birkins

Much Ado about Hermes Birkins

It was in 2003, shortly after my 1st child was born, that I purchased my first ever Hermes bag– it was an Hermes orange Kelly in 35cm, with palladium hardware. When I carried the bag around with my baby, one of the younger “ladies who lunch” whom I visited  in her family’s retail shop asked...
Shopping for Vintage Designer Merchandise in Paris

Shopping for Vintage Designer Merchandise in Paris

If you get tired of shopping along the more famous shopping streets of Paris like Avenue Montaigne, Saint Honoré, or the tourist- packed Champs Elyseés,  why not try vintage designer merchandise shopping around the city? I confess this is actually one of my favorite things to do when I have free time. Because while you...
Celebrity Bags: Her Madgesty Keeps it Real in Gucci

Celebrity Bags: Her Madgesty Keeps it Real in Gucci

Fresh from her Rebel Heart Tour where she performed and as expected, courted controversy, Madonna jetted off to London in what is reportedly an attempt to work on family affairs. And of course Madge kept in real with the latest Fall/Winter 2016 Gucci tote. I was initially not a big fan of this bag style...
Celebrity Bag: Kris Jenner's Gucci Cat Lock Bag

Celebrity Bag: Kris Jenner’s Gucci Cat Lock Bag

Who knew that the Gucci bags of Alessandro Michele would fly off the shelves once they hit the shop floors? I certainly didn’t expect that. The very first time we were introduced to the Dionysus bag, I thought that there was no way that the logo-a- gogo bag would become a favorite among bag lovers....
Celebrity Bag: Heidi Klum's Camo Croc Hermes Birkin is Major!

Celebrity Bag: Heidi Klum’s Camo Croc Hermes Birkin is Major!

Oh eeps did I say I was over the 35cm Hermes Birkin? Ok somewhere on this blog I did. I was over big birkins. I wanted a smaller one. I never did get around to buying one though, because I have to save money for one, plus I still haven’t figured out the color I...
Celebrity Bag Review: Kylie Jenner & Her LV Palm Springs Backpack

Celebrity Bag Review: Kylie Jenner & Her LV Palm Springs Backpack

It was one of those bags worthy of a mention for the year- end 2015, and it was only a matter of time before a celebrity carried it. The Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack has star power. True enough, Kylie Jenner was seen with the medium version. The LV backpack redesigned by Nicolas Ghesquiere earns...
Fun Betsey Johnson Bags!

Fun Betsey Johnson Bags!

I have not been going around a lot of stores lately because I shop only when I need to– but this holiday season has allowed me to check out different bags with different price points I am so glad I did because I would not have discovered how much fun Betsey Johnson bags are! They...
My Neiman Marcus Tradition with My Mom + Christmas Bag Finds

My Neiman Marcus Tradition with My Mom + Christmas Bag Finds

I love the downtown SF Neiman Marcus. For years now, it is tradition for them to put up the massive Christmas tree, the base of which, sits in the perfume section I always loved the Neiman Marcus Rotunda’s popover bread, and though the other cafe in- store (it was 2 floors below Rotunda) has since...
My Top 5 Bag Picks For 2015!

My Top 5 Bag Picks For 2015!

My fave bag list is definitely more than 5 and includes the Loewe Puzzle Bag (which I have written up about so many times), the Tod’s Wave Bag (which you’d also have seen featured on my instagram account), and the Fendi By The Way Bag (which is really a perennial favorite– I want the micro...
Bag Review: The Moynat Rejane

Bag Review: The Moynat Rejane

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to spend some leisure time in Hong Kong. Confession: I have not gone bag shopping (like really bag shopping– spending almost an hour inside a shop) for so long. But I was able to do so during this trip. I spent a good hour inside the tiny boutique...
Celebrity Bag: Model Alessandra Ambrosio Sports the New Tod's Double T Bag

Celebrity Bag: Model Alessandra Ambrosio Sports the New Tod’s Double T Bag

Talk about major bag envy from a girl crush! Every model’s dream of walking the Victoria Secret runway is model Alessandra Ambrosio’s reality. And while I don’t envy this gorgeous woman’s reality (because it takes absolute discipline to get and maintain the body she has), I do have serious bag envy! The Spring Summer 2016...
Celebrity Bag: Angelina Jolie and Her Celine Box Bag

Celebrity Bag: Angelina Jolie and Her Celine Box Bag

Angelina Jolie was seen carrying a Celine Box bag in tan/ camel calfskin for the New York screening of her movie, By the Sea, with Brad Pitt. I think the Celine Box style is subtly derived from another popular classic of Hermes, the Constance. But Celine has definitely succeeded in the art of discretion when...
