Travel Accessory: Jewelry Roll

I travel a lot and always find it difficult to carry all my everyday jewelry items in one place. Each designer often supplies you with a little pouch or box, but they’re not very convenient to carry a dozen of these separate items. So I’ve been meaning to find a good quality jewelry roll that won’t cost an arm or leg. Finally at NM’s Last Call the other day, I got this pouch for a steal: 40% reduction on top of current sale price for a total of 60% off from its original retail price! The colors are a little “Kate Spade-y” but it’s made of genuine leather which is what I was looking for. Now I have a place for all my little precious jewels 😀

Look Sharp in Chanel Glasses

Chanel FW13 Oval Acetate Eyeglasses with Interlaced Lambskin Chains in Tortoise

I forgot to post this purchase a while back in fall of last year when I ordered them. These are a bit retro looking with a slight cateye style. I felt like I need to step out of my comfort zone as I usually prefer more conservative styles. I like how that these glasses aren’t over the top wild, but are still professional looking. The interlaced chains are very pretty on the temples. They were also available in Black, Navy, and Clear acetate.

Effortlessly Cool with HL

Helmut Lang SS14 Sonar Wool Cropped Jacket with Leather Accents

I have the same material jacket in a gray cardigan by HL from last season, which I really like wearing. So I didn’t hesitate to purchase this jacket while I was searching for a cropped moto style to replace another wool jacket that I’ve worn to death over the years. Anyhow, this jacket is perfect for those chilly spring or fall days or you can wear it as a blazer if it’s not warm enough on its own. It’s also fully lined which is something that I appreciate given that so many clothing/designers skimp on the details. Overall, I love it – comfortable and stylish! What more can one ask for?

Club Monaco Haul!!!

One of the local Club Monaco boutiques was going out of business. They had a bunch of clothing for 30% off with an additional 70% reduction on top of sale prices. The last 3 days, did not have much stock left but you got an extra 80% reduction. I actually went several times to scoop out new clothing. In the end, I bought a bunch of basic Ts and shirts for an average of 10$ each! Take a look, I think I did pretty well 🙂

Thanks for letting me share! Have a great day everyone.

Another Hit with Balenciaga

I love Bal’s City bags for their practicality, but lately I have been ignoring mine in the closet. It was not until my SA recently sent me pix of their new stock that made me stop and stare at one particular bag:

Balenciaga Metal Edge City in Black Hamilton Leather

It may look a little blingy at first, but the gold hardware makes the details on the bag really *POP*. It’s been a real hit with a lot of customers, which is really making the City have a come back from its good old days.

Another interesting texture the company has introduced is the metallic hammered gold leather. I’m not so sure on this one because I usually prefer something more conservative. What are your thoughts?
