Parisian Craftsmanship: Valerie Salacroux Bags

Parisian Craftsmanship: Valerie Salacroux Bags

Last fashion season, I decided on exploring a bit of Paris in the hopes I’d find new bag designers. I got really lucky. Tucked away on one of the streets of the 3rd arrondissement is the atelier and boutique of Valerie Salacroux. Valerie’s bags are all personally handcrafted by her, using excellent quality taurillon clemence...
That Wild and Crazy Louis Vuitton Bags Sale in Tokyo!

That Wild and Crazy Louis Vuitton Bags Sale in Tokyo!

Last Friday, I was going through my feed on Facebook and saw an album of photos from my FB friend that made my jaw drop. I met Nivat a few times from when he was still living in Manila as an executive of an international airline company. But he has since left town, and is...

Travelog: A Bag Hag’s Guide on What to Buy in Tokyo

If you follow me on instagram [@thebaghag] and on snapchat [the_baghag], you might already know that I’m currently in Tokyo on holiday. It was my eldest kid’s birthday and we decided to celebrate it quietly in Japan, a favorite destination since the Dear Kid (DK) loves electronics and wishes to be a software engineer one...
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...
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...
Some of My Favorite Places in Paris

Some of My Favorite Places in Paris

When I’m in Paris, I love getting lost. Despite all those warnings about the city no longer being a safe place to get “lost,” I don’t heed those warnings and still go forward with exploring every possible nook and cranny that looks interesting. Here are some spots that you might already know of or have...
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...

Back in Manila + Gifts Reveal!

Hey peeps! Been so massively jetlagged over the days of being back in Manila and each time I attempted to blog, I just end up dozing off. Haha note to self: don’t blog in bed. Anyway it has been a pretty quiet (thank God no drama lol), with my 1st day spent at the Fox...
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: Angelina Jolie and Her Celine Box Bag

Celebrity Bag: Angelina Jolie and Her Celine Box Bag

Angelina Jolie was seen carrying a Celine Box bag in tan/ camel calfskin for the New York screening of her movie, By the Sea, with Brad Pitt. I think the Celine Box style is subtly derived from another popular classic of Hermes, the Constance. But Celine has definitely succeeded in the art of discretion when...
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...
