Milan Fashion Week: Gucci’s Magic Lantern & the Marmont Bag

It’s the 1st day of Milan Fashion Week for Spring Summer 2017 and Gucci has once again kickstarted another lively season for the fashion folk and for mere mortals like myself 🙂 Of course before the show, a visit to the Gucci boutique is in order! What bags have caught my eye? Actually one has–...
Travelog: 24 Hours in Taipei, The Bag Hag Way!

Travelog: 24 Hours in Taipei, The Bag Hag Way!

I have been to Taipei twice in my adult life before this current one. I was confined to going around in only a few places that time, also perhaps because I was not really free in the afternoons to explore much. This time though, I came with my friends Erika and Lesley, and we were...
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...
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...

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...

Bag Review: Sunshine in Rainy Paris with a Steiger

Sorry I have not been writing lately. I have been on this info- gathering mode for an upcoming project. That and I’ve just been trying to enjoy living in the moments instead of being on my phone while in the moment 🙂 I woke up to rain in Paris this morning and I felt like...
How To Organize and Store Your Accessories

How To Organize and Store Your Accessories

Some years ago, I used to hoard these thin metal “trees” to hang my accessories and knick- knacks. But like every other girl who loves accessories, I have this bad habit of hoarding at times especially if I get incredible bargains. And then I end up with so much more than I can actually use....
Bag Review: Ralph Lauren Ricky Drawstring Bucket Bag

Bag Review: Ralph Lauren Ricky Drawstring Bucket Bag

I have not been posting on this blog for quite a bit! Oh my! All this traveling and filming and being in cars and planes has gotten me so disoriented but boo not an excuse not to have updated for so long. So today I am back online, also because I’ve made it back to...
MFW: Super Fendi, Fall Winter 2015

MFW: Super Fendi, Fall Winter 2015

I’m not surprised anymore when it comes to Fendi, season after season. Because Karl has never failed to disappoint. Each season’s collection combines a lot of technical craftsmanship with creativity and ingenuity integral to the brand’s DNA. This obsession with Karl Lagerfeld never ends– and I’m loving that, keep it coming please! Meet Super Karlito,...

Rustan’s Christmas Wonder: My Holiday Gift Ideas (Part II)

Five days to go! Christmas is upon us all. I’m sure you are all busy attending Christmas parties on a nightly basis, with freeflowing gifts being received and getting sent out. And I can only imagine the unbearable holiday traffic with your mad rush to the mall, coupled with that reeeaaallly annoying wait for a...

Rustan’s Christmas Wonders: My Gift Ideas (Part I)

Hi everyone! I have not really had a decent “personal” update in the last few months, so please pardon me for throwing it all out here all of a sudden because also all of a sudden, I am experiencing peace and quiet (no work phone calls, no getting stuck in traffic and no work stress)....

Celebrity Bag: Kendall Jenner’s Dressed Up Celine with Karlito

Not all celebrities carry new bags everyday (though I’m sure they actually have enough new bags for each day for a whole year). And most celebrities have personal favorites when it comes to the bags they use daily. Kendall Jenner is the perfect example here. Oh and before I delve into the bag that she...
