Much Ado about Hermes Birkins

Much Ado about Hermes Birkins

It was in 2003, shortly after my 1st child was born, that I purchased my first ever Hermes bag– it was an Hermes orange Kelly in 35cm, with palladium hardware. When I carried the bag around with my baby, one of the younger “ladies who lunch” whom I visited  in her family’s retail shop asked...
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...
Hermes Birkin + Kelly Leather Cutout Totes

Hermes Birkin + Kelly Leather Cutout Totes

Last season when I went to the beautiful Rue de Sevres store of Hermes, I noticed these birkin and kelly leather cutout totes on display. At Hermes, they really don’t leave much leather to waste– they decided to make bags even out of the leather cutouts that were leftover materials to make the birkin and...
Bag Reveal & Review: Hermes Cherche Midi

Bag Reveal & Review: Hermes Cherche Midi

Almost a year ago (SS2015), Hermes released a new bag called the Cherche Midi. I admit, and as I had mentioned in a recent post, I had not really been focused on Hermes bags lately because of all the other new brands and bags that I’ve been discovering. So when I was presented with the...
Bag Review: The Moynat Rejane

Bag Review: The Moynat Rejane

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to spend some leisure time in Hong Kong. Confession: I have not gone bag shopping (like really bag shopping– spending almost an hour inside a shop) for so long. But I was able to do so during this trip. I spent a good hour inside the tiny boutique...
Celebrity Bag: Nicky Hilton's Canvas and Leather Hermes Kelly

Celebrity Bag: Nicky Hilton’s Canvas and Leather Hermes Kelly

It’s very refreshing to see women like Nicky Hilton toting an Hermes Kelly made from a combination of canva and leather. Hermes rarely ever makes these combination Kelly bags anymore these days. And I also was told that not many clients appreciate the combined canvas- leather styles as compared to the all- leather ones. Price...
Celebrity Bag: Hermes Malachite Kelly on Tamara Ecclestone

Celebrity Bag: Hermes Malachite Kelly on Tamara Ecclestone

Heavily pregnant Formula One heiress Tamara Ecclestone is most likely weeks away from giving birth to her first child but that has not stopped her from heading out in London (in heels) and in style too! She is seen carrying a Hermes 35cm Kelly in Malachite green with gold hardware. Malachite Green looks a little...
Celebrity Bag: Reese Witherspoon is Garden Party Ready!

Celebrity Bag: Reese Witherspoon is Garden Party Ready!

The last time I saw Reese photographed carrying a Hermes Garden Party was all the way back in 2012 when she carried the lighter colored version of the same style. This time she toted a black one as she took her son out in California. It’s kinda funny how there are times we just want...
Celebrity Bag: Miranda Kerr's Etoupe Hermes Kelly

Celebrity Bag: Miranda Kerr’s Etoupe Hermes Kelly

It has been awhile since I last saw a Hermes bag on a celeb apart from our usual suspects, the Kardashian girls and the Ecclestone sisters– and these women from these 2 families are seen carrying birkins most of the time, not even Kelly bags. Today I was pleasantly surprised to see Miranda Kerr carrying...

On Designer Bag Resellers & Alarmingly Good Hermes Fakes!

It was in the early years of 2000 when I decided to begin reselling some of my old designer bags which I no longer carried. I did this because unlike the select few who can afford to keep all the bags they buy, I can’t afford to buy new designer bags unless I sell my...

Bag Review: Balenciaga Le Dix by A.Wang

A few days ago, I posted the newest Balenciaga bag that we will see hitting the store shelves in a few months on my instagram account.   The Le Dix is the first bag that was designed by Alexander Wang for Balenciaga. It is really a far cry from the hardware studded bags that we’ve...

Top Five Bag Classics

I have been meaning to come up with a bag list for the longest time and finally I get the chance to sit down and actually write one up. Today, it’s all about classic bags. You know, the ones that you can keep in your closet for years and years and still whip it out...
