Paris Fashion Week: Ines de la Fressange, FW 2017

Paris Fashion Week: Ines de la Fressange, FW 2017

Ines de la Fressange is one of my favorite people whom I had the privilege to meet in Paris. Throughout the years, it was not just her style that I admired, but also her demeanor and overall outlook on life. She has always exuded a very positive vibe, and it is so easy to see...
Paris Fashion Week FW 2017: The New Loewe Bags

Paris Fashion Week FW 2017: The New Loewe Bags

Eek I am backlogged on blogging but will work on this in the next few days. I am now in Paris, catching up with old friends and going to bag presentations. This morning, I was supposed to go see Loewe’s FW 2017 collection but I woke up with a pretty severe skin allergy! Grrr… I...
Milan Fashion Week: Jimmy Choo Fall Winter 2017 Highlights

Milan Fashion Week: Jimmy Choo Fall Winter 2017 Highlights

You know by now that I am a shoes and bag lady, and that clothing doesn’t always “move” me the way accessories do. Throughout the years of attending fashion weeks, I’ve come to like going to shows less. But what I always look forward to attending are the presentations and re-sees– a chance for me...
Milan Fashion Week: Lady in Red :)

Milan Fashion Week: Lady in Red :)

The first day of Milan Fashion Week is usually light, but it is on the succeeding days that the schedule becomes very tight. I figured instead of waiting til nighttime to write on the blog, this time around I’ll write while I’m in the car. So I have to make it snappy 🙂 I wore...
Milan Fashion Week FW 2017: Fendi's New Bags!

Milan Fashion Week FW 2017: Fendi’s New Bags!

Am so excited to share with you the latest bags for Fall Winter 2017, fresh off the Fendi runway 🙂 Why I have always been a massive fan of Fendi? Because while there are many other brands that push for “continuity” throughout the succeeding seasons when it comes to their accessories and bag designs, Fendi...
Milan Fashion Week FW 2017: Santoni Debuts a Luxe Outerwear Collection

Milan Fashion Week FW 2017: Santoni Debuts a Luxe Outerwear Collection

Day 2 of Milan Fashion Week began early as I headed off to Santoni to see the luxury brand’s latest collection for Fall Winter 2017. Santoni has been known to many and to the industry as one of the most prominent luxe shoewear brands, so it was a pleasant surprise to be greeted not by...
Milan Fashion Week: Gucci FW 2017/ 2018

Milan Fashion Week: Gucci FW 2017/ 2018

I happily watched Gucci’s fashion show via livestream, as it was rather unfortunate that I did not receive an invitation this season after so many years of attending. But I shall not dwell on it because as it turns out, I got the best seat– front row, center on livestream, along with the many other...

So I joined Asia’s Next Top Model, Cycle 5…

If you are following both my instagram accounts @thebaghag and @thebaghagdiaries, then you might already have known that yes, I did audition for Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 (AsNTM). Pause… *LOL* The executive producer and his team were in town for the open model casting here in the Philippines, and they were hoping to...
Loewe's Newest Bags for Spring Summer 2017

Loewe’s Newest Bags for Spring Summer 2017

Hey peeps! It has been awhile since I last posted something on the blog because well, life caught up with me. Shortly after I got back to Manila, I had to fly out again for a work- related meeting in Hong Kong. And although the trip was short, I was just as tired, not having...
Milan Fashion Week: Fendi's Kan I- Strap You

Milan Fashion Week: Fendi’s Kan I- Strap You

I am currently on the train going to a new city in Italy– because I mistakenly thought I was already going to Paris today, and apparently have another day in Italy! Instead of spending another day in Milan, I took the opportunity to hop on a train to go to another city 🙂 Follow my...
Milan Fashion Week: Gucci's Magic Lantern & the Marmont Bag

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: Milano Window Shopping After Hours

Travelog: Milano Window Shopping After Hours

Ciao from Milano! Got into the gloomy city around 4p after a long 18 hour travel (layover included). I always feel light- hearted and happy when I’m back here. Been fortunate to live just a few blocks from the Duomo, where all the action happens 🙂 My first dinner in Milan was at Il Salumaio...
