to Bag and to hold

Shoes and bags will make or break the outfit. I'm sure many have heard of this before. The right one will bring your outfit back to live, and dramatically change it from sloppy to dramatic. Anyway, I'm not a bag lady or a shoe one. In fact, I'm all of it. I love my clothes, shoes, bags and accessories equally much. I think one can't go without the other and for that, I've compiled a lust over bag list (my style of course). Bags I've lusted and will fit so well into my wardrobe season after season.

The PS1 by Proenza Schouler is an instant hit with everyone. It is the bag to love and you'd definitely want a piece of it. My choice would be the midnight blue in large, has to be large.

The YSL Besace is the one bag I cannot stop lusting over. It's the bag for me. Slouchy-cool and still sleek. I have to get my hands on one some day. 

The YSL Downtown has never crossed my mind as a bag for me to hold until I came across this dyed gradient effect piece. Like a piece of art on its own, I'm sure it's roomy enough to pass my bag test!

To be honest, I'm quite sick of seeing the sea of Longchamp and Agnes B totes floating  in the streets. The fake ones aplenty, it loses its appeal. But this collaboration piece by Jeremy Scott have me wanting to see more. It's fun, it's quirky, it's a must have to add oomph to an over all casual attire. It definitely shows a lot of personality of the carrier too.

Last but not least, the one brand that requires 5 years of waiting, and it's in a league of its own. The one bag i will only lust over and never ever think of holding, the Hermes Jypsiere. Its truly a classic, the messenger of the birkin.

Young Blood

You know how some are born with style as part of their genetic DNA? This little girl is one of them. It was gonna be a post on the amazing print on print layering you see above but then I notice how young AND stylish she is. Only 12 an she's already dressing like a style-meister. Definitely one to look out for. When you're wearing those floral doc martens, you're definitely on my list!

Give me a break!

I'm counting down the days to : 1. My last day of work. 2. The long awaited holiday!

I'm finally making this announcement, guess where I'm heading to, 1. I left my heart in 2. Celebrities, movie cameras and paparazzi. Figured it out yet? 

Hollywood here I come! I'll be going to San Francisco too. I hope can practice enough self control to not go overboard with the shopping. I might just be in huge debt after this trip. All the brands just starts running thru my mind, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Forever21, Anthropology, Benefit, American Apparel, Gap, Banana Republic... I CAN'T WAIT!!! If anyone has anywhere in this two states to recommend, like a die-die must go obscure shopping paradise, PLEASE DO!

It's only a month away!

Vintage is the new Black

I've been out of the whole vintage buying thing for a while. It's definitely not because I've lost  interest but I've cut back on my spending quite a bit. And today, after 2 months, I needed some vintage therapy, just look-see no buying. It's no surprise that many items were clicked into my watch list. And since I can't have them, I think they odd to be shared! 

I am so into this pair of shoes! It's so Marc by Marc SS09! Unfortunately and sadly, it's way too big for me. You can get it here from Lady Wolf Vintage

This printed skirt is plain awesome! Abstract and vibrant, just the thing we need this season. from Tinroof Vintage

Cut me a new do

I haven't had a hair cut for the past 5 months, why? I was trying to have my hair grown out to have it cut like this. Unfortunately, the heat has been a killer lately, and it's been getting harder to wash my hair due to the thickness and length. I'm waving the white flag and getting a hair cut today. I love getting a new do. And after collecting so many styles that I'd so love to have, I've narrowed them down to the above two.

The one on the left is just too adorable to pass. I totally adore the unevenness of the fringe down to the sides. It's like a new bob with a twist. And the other has a devil may care look, who cares if it's a blunt fringe with layered sides. I'm so into the mixture of texture. It's messy, it's sexy. 

Now I can't decide.

On going obsession

It's no secret I have an obsession with bows. Slap on a pretty bow and I'm sold. No exception when I came across this from and with a 50% off the original price, why not. But guess what, upon selecting the color blue, it states out of stock. Sigh. Just my luck. Now I just have a pretty bow to admire and lust over.
