Bag Inventory as of 30 November 2012

Bag Acquisition - November 2012

Zero, nil, no new bag during November 2012.
We'll see how it goes til year end :D

It is another small orange box

It is Hermes Clic H bleu azure in gold hardware.
The Azur blue is so bright and stunning in real life. It goes really well with casual jeans outfit.
I am thinking to take out my Balenciaga Work in outremer to match with this bracelet. Yay!

Recent beauty haul

From left to right:
Luminessence BB fluid
UV master primer
Sheer blush (#4)
Microfill loose powder (#2)

Maestro fusion make-up (#7)

Giorgio Armani has been my recent favourite brand for cosmetics especially the liquid foundation.
I have been using its liquid foundation from face fabric, luminous silk to designer lift in the past 1 year.

And recently I bought and tried their latest foundation, called Maestro, and I love it!!
Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation is now my daily foundation and I still use other foundations from GA depending on the occasion and my activity for the day.

And these are my recent haul from Giorgio Armani cosmetics

  • Maestro fusion make up (#7)
  • Luminessence BB fluid
  • UV master primer
  • Sheer blush (#4)
  • Microfill loose powder (#2)

Gwyneth Paltrow and Saint Laurent Duffle Bag

In my humble opinion, the bag does not look elegant/nice when it is worn with its long strap. The side parts (where the long straps are attached to the main body) looks wrinkle and the bag simply looses its classic and ellegant shape.

This is something to do with the design (where to put the ring to attach the long strap) or the leather used. It seems that the supple leather may not be the right choice for this design.

But hey, maybe Mr. Sliman has his own justification or interpretation when he designed this duffle bag.

Anyway, what I love most from these pictures is Gwyneth's huge diamond ring in princess cut.

On my wrist

Today I am wearing Kelly Double Tour Tosca PHW and my trusted Rolex watch

Saint Laurent Paris Duffel Bag

I have been a loyal YSL fans in the past 3 years. The iconic YSL's Easy bag has been in my wardrobe for around 3 years. And not only had them in my bag collection but I used them quite often.

Now the brand name (and logo) has been changed to Saint Laurent Paris, under the direction of Hedi Slimane, the new creative director. So, the brand is now often called as SLP.

Of course when a new guy comes, some changes will take place (the brand name/logo has gone a drastic change obviously). New bag designs will be introduced and this small duffel bag is the first Mr. Slimane's creation available in the website.

I have a mixed feeling for this bag. I adore the bright colours that the bag offers and believe that the leather must be very soft. Yet the design is not something new. Bag lovers will easily make comments that the SLP duffel bag looks like Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola bag or Speedy Bandouliere. And I agree on that. But this duffel bag look is actually a classic design that can be interpreted differently by various brands. SLP for sure makes or interpretes it into minimalist design. Then it would draw more comments that the design is like a new Celine (the logo embossed on the front bag for instance looks like Celine logo/font). I hope that Mr. Slimane has made sound consideration and judgement when he instructed the change on name, logo and font. To be honest, I love the previous YSL bold logo but I wish to see more of Mr Slimane's bag designs and maybe the new logo would looks better and nicer to the overall design that he soon introduces.

I also noticed that the price under new SLP name has increased from the previous YSL bags' price ranges (to illustrate, YSL small chyc cabas that has similar size to this duffel bag is usd1850). In order to justify whether this bag is truly worth investing, one must check and see it by herself. And definitely I have to see it before a decision is made.

The description from the YSL website is as follows:

Signature Saint Laurent duffel bag with tubular handles, removable shoulder strap and key ring pouch.
  • Calfskin leather with suede lining
  • Exterior pocket with magnetic closure
  • Interior zip pocket, 2 slot pockets
  • Brass feet, double zip closure
  • Style ID: 314704 BOF0J 1000
  • Dimensions: 12" x 10.5" x 7", Drop 4.5"
  • Made in Italy 

Price USD2150 and by the time I made this post, this bag has to be pre-ordered


Recent Hermes haul

And they are coming in small orange boxes lol

Bought from Hermes Singapore stores (at Scotts Square and Orchard Road) they are Large Caleche chartreuse in paladium hardware and Clic H rouge H in gold hardware.

The Clic H rouge H has been my holy grail bracelet. So when I was presented by the SA at Orchard Road store, I simply asked him to take it to the cashier and I immediately presented my credit card to him.

It was indeed a fast and fun shopping experience.

My next satchel

After my first Cambridge Satchel Company bag in purple (size 13inch), I am now waiting the next one in classic green (size 11inch).
The green satchel should be coming anytime soon in December and I hope I can receive it before new year eve ;)

My latest venture: Cambridge Satchel Company

I have been away for more than 2 month, hence it explains for my infrequent blog posts recently :(

Yet, I wish to share my latest venture.

It is Cambridge Satchel Company 13 inch in purple. In my case, selecting the size and colour were the fun part. I am petite, only 5'1 height, so size does matter for me. Initially I was contemplating to grab size 14. But given the satchel design (i.e. quite stiff and very structured), hence size 14inch did not look good for my petite frame. It was simply too big.

So, 13inch satchel bag it is, which is just the right size for me :)

Ordering the bag directly from the web will definitely test our patience, as it will take more than 30 days to receive the bag. Because the bag is handmade and the bag maker requires at least 30 days to make/produce the bag of our order. Yet luckily I found a shop in Singapore that stocked the bags and have them ready to grab. Yay!!!

When I visited the shop, I was torn between pink and purple. But considering that recently I had more purple accessories and outfits, so the final decision was to take home this classic purple satchel (yup, sometimes I am still a 'matchy matchy' kind of girl *wink*).

No regret so far, and I am still eyeing other colours and thinking the next purchases.

The bag was purchased at Doorstep Luxury store. It is a nice small shop with eclectic collection. Definitely it is worth checking and visiting.
