Bag Review: The Bally Summit Bag

Bag Review: The Bally Summit Bag

For Bally’s Fall Winter 2014 collection, the standout bag was the Bally Summit tote. It looked really nice at the presentation but I never got the chance to actually carry the bag around. This June, thanks to Bally, I was given a beautiful monogrammed taupe Summit! I didn’t realize how versatile this bag was until...
Great Bag Deal: The Botkier Honore Bag in Magenta Leather

Great Bag Deal: The Botkier Honore Bag in Magenta Leather

Sometimes women buy certain bags for their color and not so much for their style, only because not all colored leather bags are created equal! There are leathers that are treated with specific colors but unfortunately, they don’t turn out as nice or as striking. The Botkier Honore Magenta Leather Bag is an exception. Because...
Bag Review: Nina Ricci Marche Medium Tote

Bag Review: Nina Ricci Marche Medium Tote

I love the sleekness and softness of this Nina Ricci Marche Medium Tote! Honestly this brand may not be in that “popular” category as compared to most of the bag brands of today, but I can honestly say that it’s quite good to go for brands that are not as mainstream– because there is that...
Bag Review: Baby Blue Miu Miu Tote

Bag Review: Baby Blue Miu Miu Tote

I’ve never really liked pastel colored bags– generally I wouldn’t although I’d make the odd exception to getting a small sized one. Until I saw this Miu Miu Leather Tote! Oooh it was loooove! This bag faintly reminds me of another Prada bag. What I do love about this bag is that it looks like...
Bag Review:  Charlotte Olympia Says, "Eye" Want You!

Bag Review: Charlotte Olympia Says, “Eye” Want You!

Having been fortunate to visit Greece and Turkey, I noticed one thing– the prominence of that “evil eye” all over souvenir shops. Those “evil eye” amulets and charms are supposedly meant to ward off evil spirits. So haha, the more evil eye you have in your home or on you, the more negativity you repel–...
Bag Review: Saint Laurent Monogram Chevron Leather Tote

Bag Review: Saint Laurent Monogram Chevron Leather Tote

When I stared at this bag, it felt like I was back in the 80s. As a child, I remember my mother carrying bags that looked like this. The Saint Laurent Monogram Chevron Leather Tote   I’m sorry but I’m still┬átrying to comprehend one thing here as well. Those 3 letters continue to feature prominently...
Three Ways with the Fendi By The Way

Three Ways with the Fendi By The Way

I love Fendi’s By the Way bag. Because the bag can actually be carried 3 ways! As a clutch, as a “hand” bag, and as a shoulder bag. I’ve been using my small By The Way bag for months thinking I’m already happy with that one bag that I have. Until I saw this new...
Celebrity Bag: The Gucci Bright Diamante Tote on Julia Roberts

Celebrity Bag: The Gucci Bright Diamante Tote on Julia Roberts

Ahh it has been awhile since I saw Julia Roberts being papped with a real good bag in hand!   Miss Roberts was out and about carrying a spiffy Gucci Bright Diamante tote. This diamante pattern that you see on the bag actually dates back to the 1930s, evoking the facets of the diamond. It...
Celebrity Bag: That Chanel Graffiti Backpack

Celebrity Bag: That Chanel Graffiti Backpack

The tactic of “the more you see celebrities carrying a particular bag, the more you end up liking it” seems to have worked for me– though I should be more specific: the more you see THE RIGHT celebrities carrying a bag, the more you like it. Very recently, it was Diane Kruger who was schlepping...
Celebrity Bag: Margot Robbie's Prada Twin Tote

Celebrity Bag: Margot Robbie’s Prada Twin Tote

When I was in Milan, I was debating on which one of the two bags from Prada to get as a work and travel tote. I was deciding between the Twin and the Double. Though in the end, I picked the Double because I wanted a lighter bag– and hah, it had more fun colors!!...
The Fendi Peekaboo Project!

The Fendi Peekaboo Project!

One of the fashion brands I’ve loved since the early 90s is Fendi. Fendi created the iconic baguette back in those days and I still vividly remember how I had to keep going into the boutique to pester their sales associates to sell me the ad campaign baguette which I had been saving up for...
Bag Review: The Fendi Demi- Jour Bag

Bag Review: The Fendi Demi- Jour Bag

This is it and I’ve confirmed it. I don’t think I’m into big bags anymore like I used to. Right now when I’m on the go, I just grab onto the smallest bag I can find. I have also abandoned using big wallets– I think I am still traumatized by that Hermes dogon wallet theft...
