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...
Travelog: On Bangkok Food & Designer Clothing

Travelog: On Bangkok Food & Designer Clothing

I travel a lot lately– so much more than I used to. If I travel for a job, I am usually left with very little alone time to shop. I take my time and explore the city or town instead of go shopping. I guess this comes with age somehow– that I feel I need...
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...

Fun Betsey Johnson Bags!

Fun Betsey Johnson Bags!

I have not been going around a lot of stores lately because I shop only when I need to– but this holiday season has allowed me to check out different bags with different price points I am so glad I did because I would not have discovered how much fun Betsey Johnson bags are! They...
When Small is Better :)

When Small is Better :)

Tsk. Small Bags! I’m talking about small bags LOL!! Now, unless it’s a travel backpack or tote (or the Loewe Puzzle bag haha), I’m over big bags. My Mom says big bags look better on me because I’m tall and they don’t drown me. I say, my time with big bags has gone– along with...
My Neiman Marcus Tradition with My Mom + Christmas Bag Finds

My Neiman Marcus Tradition with My Mom + Christmas Bag Finds

I love the downtown SF Neiman Marcus. For years now, it is tradition for them to put up the massive Christmas tree, the base of which, sits in the perfume section I always loved the Neiman Marcus Rotunda’s popover bread, and though the other cafe in- store (it was 2 floors below Rotunda) has since...
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...
Downtown SF Shopping: Barneys New York

Downtown SF Shopping: Barneys New York

Finally after almost 2 weeks of being in the Bay Area, we drove to the city I was secretly hoping to see better stuff in the bargain bins of Barneys NY and Neiman Marcus. We only had an hour to spend in both stores because of dinner reservations *I know right, how is one hour...
Boxing Day 2015 Bags + Shoe Finds

Boxing Day 2015 Bags + Shoe Finds

You have no idea how excited everyone was to go Downtown Walnut Creek (haha we all woke up too late for Downtown SF) for some retail therapy after we were hanging out in snowy Lake Tahoe. Boxing Day usually spells bargains so my wallet was getting a bit nervous LOL. First (and only) stop: Neiman...
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...
