    Chanel Filigree Vanity Case Review

    The Chanel Vanity Case / Lunchbox has been growing a steady following since its release in 2016. It very much looks like a lunch box I carried when I was younger with its boxy and almost-bulky shape and top handle (and maybe not as stylish – my glittery pink Barbie lunchbox was super cute), but I think that’s what makes this bag so endearing. It has a feminine appeal without feeling too girly and has been one of my most used bags this year since getting it in January. How I Got The Bag My boyfriend and I traveled to Oahu for vacation back in January. I had not planned…

    Life Lately || November 2019

    Hi guys! It’s been a while since I’ve actually taken some time to sit down and write in this space (my last post about my Vanity Case was written months ago, I just had to finish taking photos). The last couple of months have been a blur, but I just wanted to take a moment to recap on all that’s happened, especially since this past month is still fresh on my mind. The boyfriend and I took our first international trip together to London. We had a week there and had a good time despite the gloomy weather. Since I am a big planner and it was his first time…

    Why I Am Done with Chanel

    Yes. I said it. I’m done with buying classic bags from Chanel. There are whispers shouts in the luxury community that there is going to be a price increase at the end of October / beginning of November on the classic flap, boy bag, reissue and potentially SLGs. All of the sales associates I work with and have met have also been telling me that prices are going up right before the holidays, so these aren’t just rumors that are going around. All around The Purse Forum, Purse Bop and Instagram, people are speculating that the prices of the classic flaps will increase by at least $500. With a $500+…

    London Wishlist 2019

    Hello guys! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. I am so sorry that I’ve been gone; work has been super busy this month, so I have been more of a potato lately on the weekends and trying to enjoy spending time with family and friends. But I’m also working on a review that will hopefully be going up after this post very soon! I wanted to quickly pop on and share my wishlist for my trip to London later in November. Since there is a decent VAT refund for shoppers in the UK and EU, I’ve been thinking about taking advantage of the refund and maybe…

    Why You Should Consider Purchasing Preloved Luxury Items

    It’s 2019 and if you haven’t thought about purchasing preloved, I think you need to dip your toes in. Because in my opinion, preloved is just as good as buying new. Yes, it might entail some well-loved item from 20-30 years ago that is no longer on-trend or desirable (for now), but it also includes amazing pieces that are current season piece that have only been used once or twice. Or better yet, something that is only lightly used and still has years of life left that comes at an even better discount. Either way, purchasing second-hand should be higher on your list if you’ve never considered it or think…

    5 Things You Might Not Have Known About Chanel

    Chanel has six seasons or collections in a year. That means you can expect new items just about every two months. Also, their seasons are staggered and don’t line up with what we think about in terms of seasons, so you might be looking for something fun for summer in July, but they will have already moved on to pre-fall items. Their seasons start with the year and the corresponding letter for the season. For example, during the time of writing this, 19K is just launching in September 2019. Mid January – March || P – Printemps or Spring Act I Mid March – June || S – Summer or…

    Chanel Costume Jewelry Collection and Care

    When it comes to luxury costume jewelry, I actually don’t have many pieces. This is mostly due to the fact that I prefer my jewelry to be sentimental pieces and those are usually gifted. I still treasure a gold ring my mom gave me in high school that was from her wedding day. Also, I don’t personally value designer costume jewelry pieces since they’re not made of precious metals, stones or gems. In fact, I would much rather put that money towards a bag or a quality piece of jewelry. That being said, I still like having a small and curated collection of costume jewelry. The pieces I do own…

    Céline Micro Belt Bag || How I Got It and In-Depth Review

    Clean lines. All leather. Top handle and shoulder strap. I first saw it on bloggers and fashionistas a couple years back and immediately fell in love. It was stylish and chic, yet minimalist and understated without the huge logos or branding all over. The Belt bag looked great handheld or in the crook of the arm and casually slung over the shoulder. Most of all, it looked great styled for work or weekends: I’ve seen it paired with a sheath-dress and heels for work and a denim jacket and sneakers for a more casual look. To me, the Celine Belt checked all the boxes of being a versatile and staple…

    The Next Chapter

    Whether you’ve found me coincidentally or have followed me on my Instagram, welcome to my blog. To be honest, I had some anxiety about starting this blog because this is a big jump from Instagram, where I have shared about my luxury purchases, shopping and travels. But I know that my passion to share runs deeper than my initial fear of the unknown. Just like how I felt when I started sharing on Instagram two years ago. I started my Instagram as a creative outlet. I liked sharing photos of handbags because it made me happy just thinking about taking pictures of beautiful things. As it started to gain more…
