Bag Review: Tod's Military Bag

Bag Review: Tod’s Military Bag

The smaller the bag of late, the better. But the thing is, “small” is relative. For me, the perfect small size would allow me to bring my phone, a phone charger, my powder compact, lipstick, wallet, and my keys. Yes, I’ve managed to somehow edit my bag contents down to those Tod’s had the perfect...
Spring Cleaning- Birthday Sale at Accessory Lab!

Spring Cleaning- Birthday Sale at Accessory Lab!

I’ve been working on trimming down the amount of things in my closet and I’ve never seem to be able to “finish” doing it. But June is the birth month of my business partner Rodina and I, so we figured that we’d have a Birthday Sale at Accessory Lab this weekend! The sale started today,...
Travelog: Rome Sights in a Day? Doable!

Travelog: Rome Sights in a Day? Doable!

I was in Roma for the weekend, which actually coincided with the canonization rites of 2 great Popes in the Vatican, although I didn’t get the chance to attend the ceremonies (it was nearly impossible to get in at the last minute). I was hoping for good weather but throughout the time I was there,...

Spring Must- Have: Tod’s D Cube Micro!

Wheee I can’t believe I had been off the blog for nearly a week. I hate to admit it but it was a wee bit liberating although I made sure not to be entirely offline with instagram What I did this week was just to take in a “breather” and get things organized before the...
Golden Globes 2014: Color Blocking Not (Always) Happening!

Golden Globes 2014: Color Blocking Not (Always) Happening!

Color blocking works great with casual outfits, and even on bags when done right, like this top handle Tod’s bag from FW2013. But color blocking on a gown for a major awards night? Fat chance of fashion fail happening. Almost rare is it that color blocking is executed perfectly on a gown. Most times, the...

Travelog China: The Jay Ahr Beijing Project

I’m currently freeeezing in below 0 degC temperatures in Beijing, China but am happily doing so because of the privilege of being at designer/ artist Jonathan Riss’ exhibition for his label, Jay Ahr. Before I had left for Beijing, my story on the talented man behind Jay Ahr for the Huffington Post was published, in time...

Accessory Lab x The Bag Hag Online Sale for Yolanda (Haiyan) Victims!

The last few days have really shook the nation and the world with images of completely devasted Tacloban (and neighboring towns in Leyte) due to the wrath of Typhoon Yolanda/ Haiyan. My own Nana still has yet to hear any word from her 2 other siblings in Biliran Leyte (directly hit by the typhoon), while...

Milan Fashion Week: Tod’s SS2014

Tod’s had a most impressive showing of their SS2014 collection– and at that day’s show, there were a few firsts. First, this Spring Summer 2014 is the first collection of creative director Alessandra Facchinetti (who left her post at Pinko for one of my favorite Italian bag brands), and second, Tod’s usually has presentations each...

Beijing and the Opposite House

Four and a half hours of sleeping soundly on the plane got me off to a good start here in Beijing. Hats off to my dear friend Jonathan who had taken great lengths to ensure that I was not going to “drown” in the enormity of the Beijing airport. He was absolutely on the mark...

Bag Review: The Tod’s DD Exotic Luxe Bag

I’ve been a massive fan of the Tod’s D Bag and was pleased to see that the brand had incorporated a slight bat winged design approach to their classic signature piece. The Tod’s DD Bag in exotic skin is remarkable and is so luxe. It will have to require more careful handling but is is...

Happy Father’s Day!

Today is a day when I really miss my Daddy, who has been gone for 11 years. I remember the things he had taught me, the food he had prepared for me, the laughter we’ve had over morning cartoons, those long nights watching reruns of Star Trek, jaunts to the mall and how he had...
