Worldly Purchases

31/05/2013, Cartier, COS, Hermes, Karen Walker, Savannah

I love my labels. I really do. Who doesn’t? Who doesn’t like to wear things that people can easily identify? Fashion, thanks to its multi-billion dollar global advertising budgets, has a way of making identifiable things ultra desirable. The more identifiable an item or a brand is, the higher the value goes.

Anyway, believe it or not, some of my favourite purchases don’t come with a label attached to them. I recently bought this python skin jacket and shorts in Bali for a fraction of what it might retail for elsewhere. The shorts were about US$150, almost the same as a pair of cotton shorts in America! The quality isn’t the same, of course, but it’s not bad either.

Time and time again, I’ve always said that the older I get, the more I become allergic to the colour black. HOWEVER, it just occured to me now that I seem to be unconsciously collecting black accessories. What gives?

Texas State Capitol, Austin

07/02/2012, Austin, Current Affairs, Givenchy, Hermes, J Crew, Versace

No visit to Austin is complete without popping by the Texas State Capitol. Afterall, Austin IS the state capital. Rumi told me for the most part,  American capitals are not the biggest cities in the state, ie the capital of California is Sacramento (and not Los Angeles), the capital of New York is Albany (and not New York City), so on and so forth.

Robert Verdi took some of his old Hermès silk scarves and got Vans to use them to customize his sneakers. Talk about a whole new level of DIY. How amazing are these?

Hermes Kelly Double Tour Bracelet

10/05/2011, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Hermes

After being separated with my man for almost two months, it’s nice to be back in his arms once again. Luggage in tow, I went straight to the Japanese restaurant near his workplace. I thought it would be nice to see him during his lunch break. There he was in his brown jacket, classic aviators, white tee and his so-called (this came from him not me) “fat jeans”. Reunited at last! I’ve been to many places, have met so many people but nothing beats the feeling of getting a big, bear hug from the one that loves you the most — and of course, the one that you love.

Speaking of love, look at my little homecoming present. It’s the Hermès Kelly Double Tour bracelet. I’ve been lusting over it for months, especially the green one that I saw in Paris during fashion week.

Check out my lovely new Pucci bag who looks so humble and modest in contrast to TheBaghag‘s spectacular crocodile Hermès Kelly. I took this photo on my blackberry before dinner last night.
