  • Chanel Heart Bag review: In which I bare my heart

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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?

    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

    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 […]

  • Telfar Bag Review: I (somehow) got the small & medium bags

    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.

  • What’s With This It-Bag? The Row Ascot Bag Review

    What’s With This It-Bag? The Row Ascot Bag Review

    At some point, every millennial was obsessed with Mary-Kate and Ashley. … like to the point where I don’t need to be specific with using a last name. I could have said “Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen” — but like, you knew who I was talking about. My top 3 favourite Mary-Kate & Ashley direct-to-video movies? […]

  • Jennifer Fisher Hoops Review: I’d jump through hoops for these earrings

    Jennifer Fisher Hoops Review: I’d jump through hoops for these earrings

    Saying “I love hoop earrings” has become as obvious as saying “I love avocado toast.” … like, duh you do. Hoop earrings have gone from ancient times to 1980’s Sade to literally every late-2010’s girl-at-a-boozy-brunch. They’re the best piece of jewelry that you can own. At this point, I don’t need to explain why — […]
