Gucci of the Past and Present

Gucci of the Past and Present

A few years ago, then Creative Director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, designed the Jackie Soft shoulder bag which first came out in pink, mustard, and sky blue. I loved the pink version, although it was not a bag that I carried often because I worry about getting it dirty. But each time I take the...
The Return of the Monogram Bag

The Return of the Monogram Bag

Do you still remember which brand became famous because of the monogram? Yup, CHANEL with its unmistakable double C twist lock on the center of the bag. And of course, who can forget Hermes– the ubiquitous Constance which is really a prize if you manage to buy it today at the Hermes boutique! Well, of...
Shopping for Vintage Designer Merchandise in Paris

Shopping for Vintage Designer Merchandise in Paris

If you get tired of shopping along the more famous shopping streets of Paris like Avenue Montaigne, Saint Honoré, or the tourist- packed Champs Elyseés,  why not try vintage designer merchandise shopping around the city? I confess this is actually one of my favorite things to do when I have free time. Because while you...
Celebrity Bags: Her Madgesty Keeps it Real in Gucci

Celebrity Bags: Her Madgesty Keeps it Real in Gucci

Fresh from her Rebel Heart Tour where she performed and as expected, courted controversy, Madonna jetted off to London in what is reportedly an attempt to work on family affairs. And of course Madge kept in real with the latest Fall/Winter 2016 Gucci tote. I was initially not a big fan of this bag style...
Celebrity Bag: Kris Jenner's Gucci Cat Lock Bag

Celebrity Bag: Kris Jenner’s Gucci Cat Lock Bag

Who knew that the Gucci bags of Alessandro Michele would fly off the shelves once they hit the shop floors? I certainly didn’t expect that. The very first time we were introduced to the Dionysus bag, I thought that there was no way that the logo-a- gogo bag would become a favorite among bag lovers....
Gucci Bamboo Daily "Copy" at Nordstrom

Gucci Bamboo Daily “Copy” at Nordstrom

If I were Gucci, I’d be pretty miffed about Nordstrom’s decision to carry an exact same version of the Bamboo Daily in- store. This bag under the label Carla Ferreri looks exactly like the Gucci version, only obviously Gucci’s bag is of far more superior quality.   The abovementioned designer might say her bag is...
My Top 5 Bag Picks For 2015!

My Top 5 Bag Picks For 2015!

My fave bag list is definitely more than 5 and includes the Loewe Puzzle Bag (which I have written up about so many times), the Tod’s Wave Bag (which you’d also have seen featured on my instagram account), and the Fendi By The Way Bag (which is really a perennial favorite– I want the micro...

My Day One: Milan Fashion Week SS 2016

My Day One: Milan Fashion Week SS 2016

I may be on my gadgets most of the time, but I am quite dumb and backward when it comes to knowing how to maximize usage and what these gadgets can really do for me. Case in point: fashion weeks. Every season I would actually handwrite the shows and presentations I have to attend. And...
Milan Fashion Week: Gucci Spring Summer 2016

Milan Fashion Week: Gucci Spring Summer 2016

Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele was evidently not done with his poetic expression last season (FW2015). He continues his overt display of extraordinary artistry and craftsmanship for Spring Summer 2016 by way of rich graphic patterns interspersed with romantic details. It had a distinctive 70s vibe– and the bags were actually reminiscent of that particular...

Bag Review: Tumi Backpacks for Daily Use and for Travel

I’ve had a few backpacks in my life– but most of them have been for school (haha, I know that’s already way way way way back in the past but hey, I still remember those good ol’ backpacking days). Function was really the number one reason why I chose backpacks over totes in the past....

MFW: Gucci Fall Winter 2015, A New Era

Today was the first day of Milan Fashion Week, and it was the show of the much- anticipated Fall/ Winter 2015 collection of Gucci under the new direction of designer Alessandro Michele.  Androgynous models walked down the runway in his masculine- feminine translations of poetic romance. Geometrics on this coat paired with a red striped...
