Recent Bag Reviews

After getting what you could call my holy grail bag, the Hermes Toolbox 20, mentioned here, I was surprised to find myself continuing to shop for bags, though I didn't keep them all, of course. Here's a few of what I tried out:

First up is the Tabitha Saddle Bag from Boden. I decided to try it just because I was so drawn to the pretty Rosebay color but I actually liked the Mimosa Yellow better on me. I just can't justify keeping this when I don't love it compared to what I just purchased so these are going back but I can see them as a very practical bag for commuting to work when you don't have a lot to bring with you.

Second is this Cuyana Mini Circle Belt Bag that I've had my eye on for a while since it was out of stock and finally came back again. Ever since my Athens trip, I've been looking for a small, lightweight bag that would be good for traveling and I've found it here! I actually am not showing it worn around my waist as it's intended to b…

Hermes Toolbox 20 Review!

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?

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

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…
