Five Fingers

February 13, 2010

Someone in my run group was talking about this shoe and told me to check it out… even if it is anatomically correct, I really don’t know if I would wear it… would you?

Well, maybe for Pilates I would consider the classic style:

Five Fingers shoes… someone let me know if they’re comfy  –


The search is over!

Ever since my wallet fell apart (the covered hardware on my Bal fell off, see here), I was okay with it for a while even with the 2 tone hardware –  until the actual buckles fell off.  I have been finding a replacement since then.  Well, the wait is finally over!  So happy to have my new (and very first) Bottega Checkbook wallet 🙂 and in green too!

No buckles, no hardware – I foresee a long bright future for us 🙂

Decisions, decisions…

February 5, 2010

After my bday NG purchase, I put myself on a 6 month bag ban.  Guess what!  The 6 months is almost over so I’ve started the search for my next bag.  I’ve narrowed it to a couple of choices and was hoping you ladies can help me make a decision.

A few months ago, I posted an NG bag that I saw on  Its a tan python hobo.  I have to say that I’m still in love with that bag.  For the past couple of days, I’ve contacted Bergdorf and Saks trying to find out when it is coming in…they said sometime in March.

Then I found these VBH lovies.  I actually went to the VBH store a couple of months ago and it is an amazing store.  I fell in love with their Nomad and Napsac styles.  Guess what else, you can custom make your bag!  Choose the style, leather type (exotics include ostrich, croc, and python) and color.  *sigh*  Below is the Nomad style in python.

 Both are roughly the same price (the VBH is a bit more $$$).  As you can see, I have my heart set on python.  So, should I go with the NG bag in tan or custom make a VBH nomad.  If so, what color should I choose??  (the color in the photo is gorgeous)

Check out another photo of the Nomad.  This is what it looks like when its not full   (This is anaconda.  Too $$$)

I can’t help but go back and check Longchamp every so often, I’m always curious to see new limited editions and new styles.  Jeremy Scott has another edition for Longchamp- Bones:

They have 2 lines devoted to “abstract art” designs, the Artitude:

the Coup de Pinceau:

I couldn’t help but notice some similarities with their designs and other more popular bags.  The Veau Foulonne (can you see the Bolide in this?):

The Cosmos (can you see Givenchy?):

Can you see the Balenciaga Day in this Cosmos Hobo?

How do you like Kate Moss for Longchamp?

Last December, I was able to get my little girl her first real bag (which she will use when she is older): The Longchamp Planetes (which is only 7″x6″x4″ I couldn’t resist, it was too cute):

I really think that Longchamp’s Le Pliage line is really the most versatile and classic.  Can’t wait til my little girl can carry her bag!

No more lies

January 29, 2010

I’m not going to lie anymore and pretend I’m not going to buy anymore shoes.  I just don’t have the willpower when faced with 50% off discounts.  I should have known better than to hop over to the Manolo Blahnik sale  “just to look”.  I tried on 2 pairs of shoes, one pair of sensible work pumps and a pair of black gladiator heels.  I tried them on and because I felt so guilty of all my shoe purchases, I just bought the work pumps.  (One can always use a sensible pair of work shoes!)  For 2 days after, all I thought about were the gladiator heels.  So I went back yesterday and got them.  🙂  I figured it can’t be considered an impulse buy if I thought about it for a couple of days.  hehe.  Now, I need the weather to get a bit warmer so I can break out my new shoes!
