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...

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...

Christmas Bag Wishlist: Prada Cahier Bag

Christmas Bag Wishlist: Prada Cahier Bag

The Prada Cahier bag has been on the wishlist of many bag lovers, and unfortunately (and expectedly) the brand did not produce enough of this style to meet demand! The Cahier (not to be mistaken as “Cashier” because haha I made this mistake as well before) looks like an old book,  secured by a “belt.”...

What to Do in London for 3 Days

What to Do in London for 3 Days

I have been traveling a lot this year and truth it be told, I thought of making the jump from fashion to travel. It would’ve made perfect sense, but then again I do travel for work in fashion so I can’t just turn my back entirely on fashion. Also because that would mean giving up...

A Letter to My 1st Love, My Daddy…

Dear Daddy, Today, while cleaning some of my old things, your 11- year old grandchild found this photo of us, taken on my 18th birthday.

Lazy Long Halloween Weekend!

Lazy Long Halloween Weekend!

Here in Manila, we all had a long Halloween- All Saints’ Day weekend. I took this time to catch up on sleep (because my rhinitis + asthma deprived me of it), and then enjoyed Netflix. Oh boy Netflix, you are killing my social life lol. But the good news there is, I did get some...

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

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

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: Visiting Lu Focaro in Torre di Palme

Today, I did something I’ve always wanted to do– drive to another region in Italy 🙂 Since I am in Milan a few days before fashion week begins, I decided to go back to one of the most special places I have ever visited, thanks to the Tod’s family (Claudio, Maria Cristina, Simona, Karen, Sabine,...
