The Big Garage Sale!!!

The Big Garage Sale!!!

In the last week, I’ve been busy cleaning up the home and my closet because well, it’s time. Overcrowding is not a good look haha. And clutter can really overwhelm and be mentally burdensome. Luckily my friend Daphne invited me to join her annual Garage Sale event with Eliza Romualdez Valtos. So the last few...
Bag Review: That Camelia Classic Flap at Chanel

Bag Review: That Camelia Classic Flap at Chanel

Season after season, my eyes just grow wider when I find out the price of a Chanel classic flap bag. If I had kept my first, small sized one from 1992 (heh don’t start counting back to find out my age lol), I’d have made a killing now if I sell it today. Alas, I...
Celebrity Bag: Dakota Johnson & Chanel Boy

Celebrity Bag: Dakota Johnson & Chanel Boy

I’m currently in Shangrila Boracay for the MAC Cosmetics Spring/ Summer 2015 trend report- presentation and was about to blog a bit about my stay when the photo of Dakota Johnson carrying the Chanel Boy with tone-on-tone logo caught my eye. If you notice, there is really a serious absence of covetable bags this season...

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton SS 2015 Quilted Flap Bag

Ahhhh finalllly, I am back home and settled into Manila life once again. It’s so good to be back home to see my family and loved ones as I have been away for so long. Skype and Vibering them helped heaps but nothing beats hugging the life out of each one of them in person...
Celebrity Bag: Chloe Moretz Skateboards in Chanel

Celebrity Bag: Chloe Moretz Skateboards in Chanel

Back in the late 90s when most of you readers were just wee ones (haha including myself haha *in denial*), Chanel was a brand that was reserved for the more “mature” set. Back in college, I used to pore over the fashion bible in supermarket aisles and would see Chanel’s ad campaign which featured the...

Woohoo it’s Bag Face- Off time once again!! I don’t know if you noticed, but there are some Moschino bags and clothes that resembled Chanel pieces throughout the brand’s fashion history.

Bag Face- Off: The Chanel Boys

Bag Face- Off: The Chanel Boys

When the Chanel Boy bag was first released, I was not one of the many who liked it immediately. It actually took me quite awhile to really warm up to the bag. I was a Chanel Classic Flap loyalist. But somehow this year, I changed my mind about the bag and ended up with not...
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...
The Return of the Backpack?

The Return of the Backpack?

Or maybe it never really left? The first time I remember hankering for a backpack was when I was still a wee one– I watched as my brothers toted their blue Khumbmela backpacks *you are an 80s baby if you know Khumbmela haha*, and was fortunate enough to be bought a purple one by my...

Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Bags, FW 2014- 15

This season is the first time for me to be given an invitation to see the Chanel show for FW2014- 15 at the Grand Palais. Getting a Chanel invitation was like receiving the Willy Wonka golden ticket– it was a “jump for joy” moment for me Grand Palais is a magnificent building and I could...

Celebrity Bag: Alexa Chung’s Small Chanel Classic Flap

Fashion folk do look to chicks like Alexa Chung for inspiration every so often (or maybe often often). Still remember the Alexa effect with Mulberry’s satchel? Yup, it had success all over it. This time, Alexa is seen carrying a small Chanel Classic Flap bag.   I’m actually quite pleased to see her carrying a...
