Bag Review: Louis Vuitton SS 2015 Quilted Flap Bag

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...

Bag Face- Off: Moschino vs. Chanel

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.

Hello again, dear readers! I am apologizing because I just realized I hadn’t posted anything new for a good week! Shock!! This is also because a lot of things have been happening in real life that the most online time I get would be for instagram!  Anyway I have some good stories to tell you...
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

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

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...

Chanel for the 2013 MTV European Music Awards

Chanel seemed to be the accessories brand of choice by 2 artists at the 2013 MTV Music Awards. First up, the controversial Miss Miley Cyrus who lit what seems to be a joint onstage after she took it out of her Chanel bag. And the second, Katy Perry who accessorized her look with a Chanel...

Karl Lagerfeld’s Fendi (with a Hint of Chanel) + the Fendi Bag Bugs

Natch, both are helmed by Karl Lagerfeld, so when I was surfing online and saw this Fendi gold- tone chain cuff, I did a double take and thought, eh? Fendi? or Chanel? Fendi Gold Chain- Leather Cuff (for £425)    Karl Lagerfeld is arguably the most talented designer of our time, churning out different collections...

Celebrity Bags: A Black Chanel for Giuliana

And the celebrities’ love for Chanel has not ceased– this is perhaps one of the reasons why this French label deemed it alright to raise prices, because Chanel executives know that we bag lovers will never stop loving Chanel! Giuliana Rancic of E! News though, has an “accessory” far better than her jumbo caviar Chanel...
