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: Left: Tabitha Saddle Bag in Mimosa Yellow . Right: Tabitha Saddle Bag in Rosebay . 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. Cuyana Mini Circle Belt Bag in XS/S Black 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

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

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! :) Leaving you with the quote of the day, "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose." -Dr. Seuss

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?

Shoes on right: Talbots Naomi Leather Sandals in Black size 5 Old Navy Sueded Moto Jacket in Girls size M, from left to right in Lilac Cloud, Rosy Posy, Lost at Sea, and Olive Through This.

I really liked the styles from INC but the quality and fit just wasn't as nice as this was. Alfani Petite Faux-Shearling-Lined Moto Jacket in P/XS I also shopped Chrisell
