Reveals: Longchamp Passport Holder


Falling in love should be like polaroids.

Jo and I spend our weekends sleeping in almost all the time. This is the bane of being such busy normal working people. We get tired at the end of a work week.

But on one unlikely Saturday, we were in town for something I can’t quite remember. But I do recall it as a super fruitful day of shopping.

Jo bought a pair of black heels which are never available in Ferragamo, and I bought this, a Longchamp passport holder.

It was by chance that we were walking pass the Longchamp counter at Takashimaya. Jo with a keen eye for details spotted this.

We stopped to look. They come in various colours but this orange shade stuck out as the one I liked best.

It was instant.

We bought it.

Am superbly pleased with it. It keeps my passport and cards in place much like how I want it to be. I’ve used it once going to Manila and it works great. And the most surprising bit is that its so inexpensive.

Awesome day it was!

Edit: Jo says it was my birthday that was why we were in town.

Reveals: Chanel Grand Shopping Tote with Gold Hardware

There’s nothing quite like a massive white box sitting in a massive white paper bag with 31 Rue Cambon and Camellias on it to greet you when you come into work. For some reason, everything was sold out while my colleagues were in Paris and I didn’t think they were going to be able to get this for me. Even the earrings I wanted were sold out.  It was perfect timing when my colleague happened to be in the store as they received a new shipment of the GSTs.

I’ve wanted this for a long time but somehow I always got distracted by some other bag. I’m glad it is here now. The 2010 version is pretty cool – instead of the double Cs being made of separate pieces of leather and sewn onto the bag, it is now stitched directly on the same piece of leather. Some people say it means Chanel uses less leather for the same bag but I reckon stitching the double Cs and quilting might actually be more work. They also engraved the famous address “31 Rue Cambon Paris” on the hardware.

Clearly, this is going to be the go-to work bag for some time.
