Reveals: Chanel Tweed Jacket

The Chanel jacket is one of those things I always thought about as a (distant) future purchase. I was not expecting to buy it during our trip to Paris but we had no luck at FSH (surprise surprise) and the other items on my wish list were all sold out. I decided to try some jackets and this happened.


I mean, look at it! The details are glorious. I also like the colour which works with my boring work clothes and could be dressed down as well.



Here’s a street style picture of the jacket. I love this jacket draped over one’s shoulders look but does it even work in real life? How do people do things or reach for stuff without the jacket slipping off?


Thanks for dropping by!

Reveals: Faure Le Page Carry On 20

We visited the Faure Le Page store along Rue Cambon while we were in Paris. Service was lovely and my friends quickly picked up a few items. I decided against buying anything as I had already made an unexpected purchase at Chanel.

After we came home, I was overwhelmed by a deep sense of regret! After stalking the Faure Le Page Instagram page, I decided I needed a Carry On in my life. I sent an email to and got a reply the very next day with dimensions, prices and more than 30 photographs complete with size comparisons.

Dimension of carry onThis is a very helpful side by side size comparison between the Carry On 20 and Carry On 22  provided by the SA Claudia. I must say service is excellent.

Carry On 20 & 22

Prices for the Carry On are as follows:

– Carry On 20: 860 € including taxes. 716,67€ Tax Free.
– Carry On 22: 910 € including taxes. 758,33€ Tax Free.
– Carry On 36: 1550 € including taxes. 1291,67€ Tax Free.
If you are ordering the item outside of the EU, you would pay the Tax Free price. However, you will need to pay for shipping (which is dependent on the weight of your purchase(s)) and your local taxes. I paid 75€ for shipping to Singapore.
Unfortunately, when I placed my order, the wallet I wanted was out of stock. I chose to wait for it to come back in stock and that took about 1.5 weeks. Once my order was shipped, it took 4 days to reach me and here it is!
I went with the Carry On 20 in Inverness Red. I also ordered the Portefeuille Rabat Grand in Empire Green.
Here’s a shot of the Carry On as a cross-body bag. I am about 1.64m.
In this day and age where the prices of designer bags are increasing exponentially (while quality is arguably not), Faure Le Page bags are great value for money. I am very pleased with my purchase. If you are looking to purchase one, I would recommend doing it earlier rather than later. The prices will inevitably climb up as they become more and more popular.

Reveals: Chanel Brooches & Slingbacks

Chanel accessories can be so pricy for costume jewellery but I get a lot of wear out of my Chanel brooches which helps reduce the cost-per-wear of these brooches I added a few months back (but only managed to take pictures of recently).


I also added these slingbacks. I only managed to pick them up at the third Chanel boutique (Avenue Montaigne) I visited. For some reason, everyone and their mother was buying these slingbacks in Paris.

Would have preferred a colourway with some contrast (like the beige and black ones) but I would really wear the black ones more. Sizewise, they fit true. I am a 37.5 in Chanel ballerinas and took the same size for these.


Reveals: Chanel RTW Sale Purchases Part 2

See Part 1 here. I was on my lunch break and thought I’ll just pop by Chanel to look at the sale items.


I tried this top with the matching skirt and thought it was such a cute outfit. I like how it can be worn together as a set or with other pieces which makes it a lot more versatile. The skirt also has pockets which I also love so I bought the top and the matching skirt (sorry bank account).


Here are some pictures of the top and the skirt from the past weekend!




Reveals: Old Navy Cropped Button-Back Tank

I love gingham and this was too cute to resist! I also added the matching shorts here. It is such a fun weekend outfit that I may have worn it for two consecutive weekends since I received it!

I really like the button back details for the top and it definitely feels more expensive than what I paid for it. Here’s hoping Old Navy will make this same tank in black and white. It would make such a great basic tank. The shorts are pretty comfortable too but I don’t like that there is an elastic backing on the shorts. Good thing the top is long enough to cover the elastic backing of the shorts so I’m not too fussed about it.

Old Navy Cropped Button-Back Tank

I also picked up the cropped trousers here in Navy which looks very cute with the top. The price point is so excellent. The cropped trousers work very well for work and I’ve already worn them twice! All in all, I am very happy with this order.

Reveals: Le Specs Cleopatra and Hey Macarena


I picked these up from here and here. Ordinarily, I would have picked them up from Net-a-Porter or Shopbop (yay 3 day international shipping). However, due to currency exchange and the low AUD, the price I paid in AUD ordering direct from Le Specs was significantly lower than the price I would have paid in USD.

Le Specs also offers free international shipping for purchases of AUD100. Delivery was fairly quick. It was shipped out on Monday and I received it by Friday in the same week.

The Cleopatra is from the luxe collection and costs almost double of the Hey Macarena which is from the normal collection. Quality wise, they seem pretty on par. Packaging wise, the Cleopatra comes in a white protective box and fabric pouch while the Hey Macarena comes with just a canvas protective pouch.

They fit pretty well and the price point is really good especially if you do not want to spend too much on a fun pair of sunglasses.

Reveals: Nike Leather Classic Ultra Trainers

DSCF6543It is pretty obvious that I have been obsessed with white sneakers.

Before the husband bought me these Feiyues, I got myself these Nikes for an upcoming trip. Purchases always seems slightly more justifiable that way.

Some initial thoughts – love the clean white leather with the perforated Nike swoosh and the contrast black stitching. They did feel a little stiff the first time I wore them. Hopefully, the leather will soften with some wear.

Reveals: Pedder Red Jess Camouflage Leather Pumps


Pedder Red makes a contemporary range of shoes under the Pedder Group. I actually bought my very sparkly wedding shoes for Pedder Red some years back because I didn’t want to spend too much money on a pair which I potentially would never re-wear again.Those shoes have only seen the light of day once since the wedding day.

During one particularly idle weekday lunch, I chanced upon the store display and was instantly drawn to these sparkly camouflage pumps. It is a classic pump but the print makes it so fun. I also added this pair because everybody needs another pair of black patent flats.

What I really like about both pairs are their leather and rubber soles. They feel extremely sturdy and grip well to the ground. As much as I love me some glorious leather soles, they don’t grip as well and always make me feel paranoid that I slip and fall. I usually have the cobbler add rubber soles to them.

Reveals: Feiyue White Sneakers

We wrote about Feiyue here some years ago. Since then, the husband has consistently added to his Feiyue collection as they are extremely affordable and comfortable.

I have been wanting to add some white sneakers to my collection. During our recent taobao haul, the husband picked this pair for me for a mere SGD7. It really doesn’t get any more affordable than that! I will attest to the fact that they are really comfortable and I find myself looking forward to the weekend so I can wear them again!


Reveals: Hermes Bolide 27 in Rouge Vif


A quick reveal of my new-to-me Hermes Bolide 27 in Rouge Vif!

To be honest, the Bolide is one of my favourite bags. I love how it is so understated and under the radar which makes it a great work bag for a conservative office such as mine. It is also nowhere as popular as its flashier siblings which means it can be purchased from the resale market at a reasonable price. I have been wanting to add the Bolide 27 and I was so glad when this one turned up. Rouge Vif is a glorious red!

I will do a detailed post of what fits in a Bolide 27 soon!
