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.

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: 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: Feiyue

Our dear friend brought us to this little shop in Shanghai to purchase shoes.

It was a little shop no wider than its doorway. Entirely easy to miss.

An original product of Shanghai, Feiyue has been around since the 1920s.

It is a very comfortable pair of shoes. Not surprising since it the prefered shoes for martial arts. Not that I will kick ass in it, but its great for walking the streets of Shanghai.

It costs 50 Euros in Europe but in China, you pay 12 Euros for it. Buy the real deal! Buy it in China!

Reveals: Goyard St Louis PM Blue

I love the details of a Goyard. The hand painted motifs are beautiful to look at. It almost like an art piece to admire.

In this part of the world, there are no Goyard stores yet. A friend went to London recently and I thought it would be fantastic to surprise Jo with a Goyard St Louis.

But somehow Jo with her psychic abilities knew that I was getting her something. So she wasn’t at all surprised but delightfully happy to own her first Goyard.

Reveals: Hermes Collier De Chien Ring in Black

Strange how the mechanics of how this world works.

Just when I thought that it is impossible to find a CDC ring in the store, I found it for sale in the Hermes store located at the Bangkok airport that very same morning.

A pity they had it in only one colour, black. But nonetheless, I bought what I could get my hands on. And was Jo super happy to see the orange.

So here is me wearing the CDC ring on my pinky. It still is the cutest thing ever.

Reveals: Marc by Marc Jacobs Bianca Clutch in Saffron Red

I chose Saffron Red instead of Caramel thinking it would be a lovely coral red as seen from photos. However, it turned out to be orange instead of the imaginary coral red. Truth be told, I was quite disappointed when I received the package and actually considered returning it.  However, paying for shipping to return it and re-ordering a caramel one seemed too much of a pain. Anyway I was reminded by Travelpac that I do not actually own an orange clutch and the colour is similar to those happy orange boxes we love.

Plus points – it is gigantic which means it fits a long wallet, keys, 2 blackberries and sunnies, the leather is really quite soft and I always like the fabric interiors in MBMJ’s bags.

Reveals: Celine Mini Luggage

I heard all the problems about this – too big, too heavy, water stains on the lambskin. I am pleased to say that it is actually smaller than I expected but still extremely roomy. The lambskin  is not crazy heavy but pretty comparable to a Balenciaga. Water stains are inevitable on the lambskin but it can be solved by waterproofing and praying that it doesn’t rain on your bag!

I really love how the bag looks like a face.

Reveals: Shida Market

I am in a hotel in Hanoi, lying under the comfort of the duvet, eating Hello Panda and watching TV and writing this at the same time.

Time flies. We’ve been back from Taiwan for 3 months. There was a night market that we both liked a lot. We liked it so much that we revisited it twice.

There was this particular stall along Shida in Taipei which sold these intricately crafted trinkets. And no, I wasn’t referring to the Tiffany. The Tiffany is for real and is one of the first gifts I gave to Jo.

I’m talking about the Peace bracelet. We thought it would go well with the Tiffany bracelet. And it did.

We also bought these funky skull & bone earrings from the same stall!
