Hermes Toolbox 20 Review!

Image
A long time ago, I used to covet the Hermes Birkin bag, as I'm sure many have since it's so elusive. Since then, I switched over to pine after the Hermes Kelly bag instead, after I saw it on Wendy Nguyen from Wendy's Lookbook here. She's a fellow petite and it just looked so nice on her! Over time though, and especially after baby A, I see how such a bag is definitely not practical for me and if I were to spend a small fortune on a bag, I'd want one that I would actually use more often. The Kelly has a thin strap and is quite structured, which is what I like about it, but in reality is too classy for my weekends. It wasn't until I went to Athens, posted about here, that I tried on the Hermes Toolbox 20 and fell for it. It was in a beautiful royal blue color but I already have a Celine in that same color (seen here) but that bright color and how it hung on me were the reasons I really liked it so much. I realized I wouldn't love the bag in a beige or deep ne…

March Haul + Hermes?

Image
Here's last month's haul and as mentioned before, a lot is from Old Navy.





I'm also really excited because I finally purchased my first (and only, most likely) Hermes bag through a re-seller site and it comes tomorrow! Can't wait! :)

Shopping Lately

Image
I've been shopping sooooo much lately.. probably to subconsciously hit minimum spends on some credit cards I just opened in my goal to fly first class someday. I've been making so many purchases from Old Navy that I feel like I should open a credit card there but I know this is just a phase.. or is it?





Aside from Old Navy, I also shopped the Macy's VIP 30% off sale when it was going on and got this jacket I love! I really liked the styles from INC but the quality and fit just wasn't as nice as this was.


I also shopped Chriselle x J.O.A.'s collection from Nordstrom and of the three things I did try, I only liked this Chriselle x J.O.A. Blazer Minidress, though it is a bit long and roomy in the sleeves. Love that you can wear it as a dress or blazer. :)

Lastly, I noticed multiple coworkers wearing variations of Uniqlo's Waffle Crewneck shirts in long sleeves and short sleeves so I couldn't help going to check them out, thinking I'd like one in White. Howe…

YSL Toy LouLou Bag + Talbot's Reviews!

Image
The Saint Laurent Toy LouLou Crossbody Bag caught my eye when it popped up on a Facebook ad from Nordstrom and I just had to find out if I thought I would love it as much as I did in my head after obsessing over it for a while. I know I mentioned just last post that I stopped shopping as much for myself but this is an exception. :)

Upon first opening the package, my first impression was that I love the Washed Light Pink color and that the bag is more structured than I thought. The color is closer to the modeling pics below.


Though I love the color a lot, I feel like the length is unfortunately too long for me so I am sending it back. It measures 7.8" x 5.5" x 2.7" with a 21"-22" strap drop. It would be perfect on someone who is 5' or taller, which is even just an inch taller than me so I really just need one more hole but the bag only comes with three. Also, note that it was extremely difficult for me to adjust the bag but I figure you would only need to d…

February Haul + Snowboarding

Image
Here's February's haul, which is almost all from Gap and Old Navy except for the two Ann Taylor shirts I got from the outlet when I went for a short snowboarding trip with my family:







This cute little black purse was actually purchased on my Athens trip last month that I mentioned here. I was dying for a small, lightweight bag after wearing my heavy Chloe Paraty bag all around.

I went with my family to a mini snowboarding and outlet getaway over one weekend last month and only purchased two top from Ann Taylor (first pic above) and got many good deals for baby A - I definitely notice I've been on the lookout for deals for baby A much more than shopping for myself now.

January Haul + Athens!

Image
A and I are trying to accumulate airline points to one day experience first-class, which has led me to shamelessly shop way too much and it all started in January. Here is January's haul:






A and I just came back from Athens last month but we sadly did not get to visit Santorini or Mykonos since it was great deal I purchased for Athens only but I definitely can't wait to go someday! I felt the four nights we spent there was definitely enough and here are some highlights from the trip:
