5. Case Mate – Karat Collection: 24K Gold Leaf Foil Phone Case
It’s so blinged lol, perfect for my gold iPhone 6, and I had to waitlist for it cuz it was totally sold out in September when the 6 was just released. I had to wait like 2 months for it to be delivered, but it’s well worth it!

6. Prada FW14 Nero Daino Belt (Pebbled Calfskin) – 1 1/2 inches
I’ve been searching for years for an affordable, classic, black belt without any logos and couldn’t believe that Holt Renfrew had it at a fab steal of $139 from retail $415. And it wasn’t even a week ago when it was still something like ~300$ on sale, but only offered in Navy. This was the only one available and fit me perfectly at a size 75, which I can wear low on the hip and higher up on my natural waist.

7.  Valentino FW14 “All Over” Rockstud Gloves in Black Calfskin and Silk Lining
Best for last!!! I’m just in love with these gloves! Yes they’re blinged out and look kinda dangerous, but so chic and comfy at the same time. I was once told that one’s glove size should match her shoe size, which is not necessarily true for everyone, but it’s a trick that I’ve picked up. When in doubt, always go for the SMALLER glove size because the type of leather used tends to be extremely soft and will stretch a lot over time. Whereas for shoes, the reverse is true, i.e. always go for the BIGGER shoes because they don’t stretch as much. So don’t break your feet in attempt to break in those too small shoes! 😀

Modeling Pix:
Having some fun here and doing my Valentino brand impression lol. Don’t you find that with every brand, a certain image or colour pops up? Valentino invokes a scarlet red outfit for me, just like their Shanghai collection from this season. There’s a mix of the rocker-chic girl from our contemporary era with plenty of jewelry and studs, but all the while there’s a softness and romantic idealism behind everything like in the good old classic days. The only thing missing? Some lace, but it was too darn cold outside to wear a dress!! I guess I could have added a lace top with long sleeves to peak through 😛

Outfit Reference:
Coat – Burberry
Bag – Céline
Watch – Rolex
Rings and necklace – Cartier
