I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist this…

January 31, 2011

I had been eyeing a TATA Bag…


but for the price, I was better off getting a real leather bag (this costs roughly $500.   Sorry, I would not fork over that amount for a canvas printed bag of a wanna be Birkin).  But when I saw these Banane Versions – hahaha!  I got such a kick out of it I gifted my sisters and my mom their own “Birkins” as well!



At least this version doesn’t have any pretense  and won’t even pretend that it could be the real thing from afar… the most it gets is a good laugh and stares from people.  My mom told me she never had so many people stop her and comment about a bag when she brought this out…(considering she just gifted herself a few months back with the LV Antheia —- BEEEYOOTIFOOOL I tell you and buttery soft!!! she got more compliments and stops from the Canvas wanne be Birkin 🙂 )

So, here is my first “Birkin” (and probably my only since I don’t think a Birkin  suits me really… I’d get the Kelly or the JPG before anything else- and IF I did get those,I wouldn’t have any money left over for a Birkin 😛 ) Please excuse the outfit  😛

Funny this world is,  no?

Happy New Year to all! All I wanted for Christmas (aside from a healthy baby and safe delivery of course) was this baby and I am so thrilled I finally got one 🙂 Say hello to my very own terracotta G bag 🙂 I haven’t switched bags since getting her and she is definitely everything you guys she would be and more. Another beauty to pass on to my girls.

Christmas Bling!

I’ve been obsessing over jewelry lately… my jeweler friend Elena had really beautiful cuffs and rings for her holiday collection 🙂

Here are some that I was able to snatch!  Leather cuff with sliders (I think the stones are Citrine, rose quartz and blue topaz)

This is seen as a pendant but you can remove it from the necklace and insert this on the leather cuffs as well… so cute!

Stackable rings!

here it is on…. Sorry – phone pic!


…And my newest favorite, bought on a whim but I couldn’t resist, I love it!  This picture doesn’t do it justice but I hope you can see why I love it… it’s in WG and diamond pavé.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

It’s about time

So she’s finally arrived…I was stalking FedEx for the past couple of days getting more impatient by the minute.  So this is the mini Luggage tote in camel.  The color is kind of interesting.  When I first received it, it appeared almost gray..then I took a photo, it looks more like camel.  Regardless, I love it.  Its so light!!  Merry Christmas to me:)


On its way…

Little preview of what’s coming.  According to FexEx, she is arriving tomorrow…  I’ve had to wait over a month for this little lady.  I will post more photos when she arrives.

So you’d be happy to know that I DID manage to get the anya hindmarch ballet bag (it’s adorable! plan to start Maya’s ballet classes in jan… and yes, one upside of being able to ship things to amsterdam now!)… and finally, after how-long-ago-was-that-when-I-was-looking-for-my-designer-tote, I’ve found my designer tote… in the strict lv neverfull/goyard st. louis type of tote that i was looking for…Gucci turned out to be my saviour…

Psst! why you all so quiet?

Wow, it’s been awhile….

I know, Life caught up with me – stress at work, over training for the NYC Marathon and having the worst experience during  race day (although I am glad to have finished despite the dismal time).  I haven’t been shopping – well, not in full force anyway 😉

So, let me give you peek at my one and only bag purchase for the second half of this year – actually , hub got it for our 10th year anniv… Drum roll please…

I absolutely love this bag!  He bought it while we were in the Taipei airport on our way to L.A.  It is so handy, so functional and it can carry so much – I will never will travel with any other bag again – this is hands down the best (for me).  The leather is so smooth and soft!  I was actually looking at a Nylon bag and on our way to the counter to pay for it, this little baby whispered my name and as I glanced over at her –  I fell in love  🙂  She was so beautiful on the shelf!  I love this bag!  I’ll post pics though of the actual bag later 🙂

In the meantime, here are more pics (I’m in good company 🙂 ):

So, what else have I been up to.. just renovations, renovations and more renovations.  I have had to really watch my expenses because our budget was just blown way out of proportion.  Of course I know I will have a beautiful place in the end but wow, costing an arm, leg and all toes (mine, my husband’s and my daughter’s!)  I hope to show you pics of our place soon –

Are you all secretly keeping your new finds???  expose them now 🙂 I’m baaack 🙂
