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...
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...
Shop, Shop, Shop the Big Sale!

Shop, Shop, Shop the Big Sale!

You know what they say, Shopping is considered therapy (haha retail therapy). And the timing could not have been better for most of us folk who are stressed with work this week. So here’s a Big Sale shoutout: Moda Operandi’s Sale has got me excited because some of the pieces I’ve been eyeing for quite...
SALE ALERT! The Great Net-a-Porter Sale!

SALE ALERT! The Great Net-a-Porter Sale!

How do you know when you are a hopeless shopaholic? Case in point: when I find out that Net-a-porter goes on sale, I privately go nuts. Because confession: you have no idea how many times I’d put bags on the checkout basket or wishlist—and leave them there in the hopes that I’d get an email...
A Swift Replacement: Taylor Swift Songs Describe Budding Hiddleston Romance

A Swift Replacement: Taylor Swift Songs Describe Budding Hiddleston Romance

Ok so this is NOT a bag- related post. I just want to exercise my right to vent LOL. I woke up this morning to news about Tom Hiddleston. His name was trending. So I was thinking finally, they chose him to be the next James Bond. But oh no, this was not to be!...
Reeled in by the June (Birthday) Bug

Reeled in by the June (Birthday) Bug

Oh dear, where had all those months gone? In the blink of an eye, it was 2016. And in another blink, it’s already June– so where did all the 6 months go? I have honestly been cruising along in the last few weeks. Confession: I don’t think I ever got over jet lag. Drat, this...
Bag Review: Joanique Maskara Hard Case

Bag Review: Joanique Maskara Hard Case

I rarely write about Philippine- made bags. There are a number of talented designers that are actually worth the mention, but I had not yet seen anything “different” from the other bags that I have already seen in the past. I am also more interested not just in the design and manufacturing aspect of the...
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

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...
