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: Glossier Generation G

A little late to the Glossier bandwagon but they recently restocked Generation G in all colours. Glossier does not ship internationally (yet) so I used my usual forwarder to ship my order to me in Singapore. Shipping within the US took 10 days despite the expected 5-8 days delivery timeline. My order came with super cute stickers which I promptly stuck on my phone cover!


Here’s my incredibly noob attempt at swatches of the Glossier Generation G colours. The colours from top to bottom are Like, Cake, Crush and Jam.


It feels very much like a tinted balm. The coverage is sheer but buildable. Crush and Jam are definitely much darker and you don’t really need to put on that many layers. Lip colours tend to be quite high maintenance – I always feel the need to check to see if there are smudges after eating and/or drinking. With these, I didn’t feel the need to do so. In particular, I liked Like and Cake for a casual “no-makeup” look on weekends.

I also ordered the milky jelly cleanser which smells like a thousand roses! It was absolutely glorious and I would definitely order it again.

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!
