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...
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...

Behind the Scenes: My Lifestyle Asia Mag Cover Shoot in London

In between Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week, I made a detour to the city of London for my cover shoot of Lifestyle Asia  (LA) Magazine’s April cover. I won’t lie– call me narcissistic but I really was so thrilled and beyond ecstatic at the thought of being a cover girl for a 2nd...

Bag Review: Sunshine in Rainy Paris with a Steiger

Sorry I have not been writing lately. I have been on this info- gathering mode for an upcoming project. That and I’ve just been trying to enjoy living in the moments instead of being on my phone while in the moment 🙂 I woke up to rain in Paris this morning and I felt like...

I have not been so excited over a bag reveal in quite a bit. So let me share one now. But before I get right into it, a brief background first:) My show (The Bag Hag Diaries on Star World… hehe shameless plug– a new episode airs every Tuesday night at 7.55 pm, with reruns...
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 Review: Elie Saab Pairs Backpack with Couture Gown

Bag Review: Elie Saab Pairs Backpack with Couture Gown

I would cringe when I see a beautifully dressed woman in a gown carrying a chunky bag. I would have normally recommend a box clutch, a flat pochette, or a minaudiere for formal occasions. Never really thought that sizable leather bags would work with couture. Until Elie Saab’s current Haute Couture collection presentation which showcased...

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...
Travelog: Flying Qatar Airways to Paris

Travelog: Flying Qatar Airways to Paris

I’ve always been a diehard loyal passenger of Emirates Airline, having had a consistently lousy experience travelling with Etihad to Europe (search my blog for the experience). This trip to Paris though, I am flying Qatar. The flight from Manila left at 5.50pm in the NAIA 1 Terminal. I haven’t set foot in this terminal...
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...

Paris: More Fun Spots in the 2nd Arrondissement

As promised, I’m sharing some more of my favorite eateries as well as shopping spots around my area 🙂 I think the thing about Paris is, there are many places to eat but a lot in the more popular areas cater to tourists. While many of the bistrots and brasseries serve great food, others are...
