Review | Moschino M Bag with Chain Link Shoulder Strap

It’s funny that bag reviews, although not the core of what this blog is about, keep getting me consistent views. I guess it makes sense, designer bags are an investment. Would it be so that I would have all the money in the world, I would get and review them all. You know, for the sake of the community. For today, I have the Moschino orange and blue polka dot M Bag.

Review | Danse Lente Mini Johnny Bucket Bag in Peach and Lemon

Review | Danse Lente Mini Johnny Bucket Bag in Peach and Lemon

I’ve referenced in the past that one day, a Danse Lente bag would be mine. After a nearly year-long courtship and a lot of intense sale scouting, a mini Johnny bucket bag was mine. Danse Lente decided to launch the Johnny bucket bags in this pastel yellow/subdued coral colour combination for Spring/Summer 2020, and it was a great choice for warmer weather – it’s feminine, it’s classic, it reminds me of sorbet. It was meant to be.

New Bags on the Block: Ralph Lauren, Kenzo & Ganni

New Bags on the Block: Ralph Lauren, Kenzo & Ganni

Did you get through sale season unscathed? If you did, lie to me. Hide the high horse if you’re a role model of self control. ‘Cause I’m not. Neigh, I’m not.

It wasn’t just makeup that I caved in to, oh no. If someone was to make a chart about my bag purchase rate over the past year, it would be a consistent line until about two months ago, where it would grow more exponentially than the coronavirus crash to zero because I would start running with all my new bags under my arms before they could start counting them.

5 Style Essentials That Made My Life Easier

5 Style Essentials That Made My Life Easier

…because my life is so hard.

First world problems aside, I hope I’ve caught your attention with the overdramatic tittle, because theses pieces are actually something that you don’t see often listed in articles about building a minimalist/capsule/insert_basic_word_here wardrobe.

Burberry Unboxing – Check it out

Burberry Unboxing – Check it out

See what I did there? The Burberry check pattern is probably one of the most recognisable ever – and very on par with the brand itself, it stands the test of time, being that it was registered as a trademark 99 years ago.

This is a designer that I consider carries a genuinely classic collection – yes, because many pieces that get dubbed as “timeless” have a fashion life of about 10 years, but the Burberry trench coat is forever in style. This isn’t the time for a trench unboxing, unfortunately, my wallet is still unprepared for such, but I got myself the next best thing.

My kryptonite.

My love.

My everything: shoes.

An ugly sneaker, by any other name, is still ugly.

An ugly sneaker, by any other name, is still ugly.

I feel like ranting, so indulge me.

I’ve been in Farfetch’s website lately to take advantage of their 30% extra of sale items, and obviously, I’ve browsed the shoe section. Since I tend to remove sneakers from my page – I always filter for mid and high heels – I had the hope feeling that the ugly shoe trend might be gone by now. I mean, it’s been a year.

How naive of me.

Le frique, c’est chic.

Le frique, c’est chic.

If you didn’t know the song, now you know, your life is better now. And if you know what youtuber I’m referencing with that last sentence, give yourself a cookie. Go on. Blame the calories on me.

Given the tag line of this blog, it’s ironic that the first picture of this post is a display of sneakers. But these are so original and colourful that they made it. Still not for me, still sneakers, but I reckon they’re cute.
