What’s up with a $1,500+ nylon bag? A Prada Nylon Bag Review
“There’s a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Skechers, but I love my Prada backpack.” -Bianca Stratford, 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) This is likely one of the most overused quotes in my life and on this site. However, you know as well as I do that it’s not only […]
Celine Sunglasses Review ft. Triomphe, Baby Audrey vs. Audrey, and more
Are you team Phoebe or team Hedi? I am team “I-See-Philostans’-points-but-still-like-Hedi-a-lot.” … but when it comes to Céline’s Celine’s sunglasses, it doesn’t even matter. While all three of my Celine sunglasses were purchased under Phoebe’s tenure, Hedi continues to put out the Baby Audreys and some killer cat eye shades. Since they haven’t changed under […]
Telfar Bag Review: I (somehow) got the small & medium bags
I hate when people caption their photos on Instagram, or whatever the latest social media is, with… “You can’t sit with us.” 1- That’s not even the best quote from Mean Girls.2- Why do you want to make other people feel bad? Honestly, that caption feels noxious and obnoxious.
Chanel Heart Bag review: In which I bare my heart
“Responsible” is a word that gets thrown around much too much once you hit 30. … but, unlike an extra candle on your birthday cake, “responsibility” is hard to quantify. Sure, there are numbers in your 401k plan or Roth IRA account that you can count up, but you can’t really measure “responsibility.” It’s like, […]
Is this 14kt Gold Jewelry Worth It? | A Mejuri Review
This isn’t sponsored, FYI. … and I make a point of saying that because Mejuri seems to send a lot of jewelry to bloggers/influencers. These pieces of Mejuri jewelry that I will review were purchased during their “only sale of the year;” their Black Friday sale (which actually started on a Wednesday, if you want […]
Mini, but mighty | Loewe Flamenco Bag Review
During lockdown, my then-boyfriend/now-husband asked what I thought about buying a ranch in Montana and I was like “uhhh…” … but then I was like “well, I always wanted to take up gardening.” By “take up gardening,” I mean buy potted flowers, realise I did not dig the hole big enough, pathetically plant them, try […]
Is it TOO small? | APC Demi Lune Mini bag review
Band of Outsiders and Marc by Marc Jacobs came and went… but, one brand from that delectable 2005-2008 era holds true in our heart and remains in stores: Atelier de Production et de Création. … i.e., A.P.C. So, over a decade later, it makes sense that I’d finally get A.P.C.’s signature bag.
So NOT a jewelry person, but… | Mateo jewelry review
My gold-plated hoops and vintage earrings might say otherwise, but… I’m not a jewelry person. Sure, I’ll get a Tiffany bangle engraved for my mother as a Christmas gift or, along with my husband, surprise my sister with a Cartier Love bracelet after she officiated our wedding. However, for me, personally? Expensive jewelry is too […]
Celine Small Trio Bag Review: How much has changed under Hedi?
Note: In recent months, it seems like the Celine Trio bag has been discontinued… however, you can still find it on resale sites like ReBag, The Luxury Closet, or The Real Real. Personally, I’m in the minority. While I’m a devout Céline sunglasses wearer, I’ve never been a huge Phoebe Philo-stan. On the flip side, […]
Pretty perfect, but not worth full price: Isabel Marant bag review
Buying a new handbag is rare for me. … I prefer to keep my bags (mostly) classic. Every now and then though, a bag will creep up on me and rattle around my head. The ones that have been shaking in my mind the most are from, who else, Isabel Marant. … but spending $1,290 […]
