My Own Code

10/10/2013, Accessories, Current Affairs, Fall Winter 2013, Handbags, Just Cavalli, Kris Van Assche, Valentino

My friends at Valentino recently sent me what I think is the ultimate must-have this season — the “My Own Code” bag. It’s a lovely clutch with a foldover clutch and a handle. What makes the bag extra chic is the fact that you can have your initials stamped on the handle — available at select Valentino boutiques worldwide. I’m all about personalization. In this day and age of everyone can pretty much get anything, having something monogrammed with your initials is what makes it truly and only yours.

Overcast Forecast, Zurich

10/05/2013, Current Affairs, Paul Smith, Valentino, Zurich

Oh Zurich. Why haven’t I discovered you sooner? The afternoon we arrived in Zurich, Queenie and I were met with the most amazing weather. But of course, when we decided to go and explore the city the following morning, the city was covered by gray skies.

A lot of people wouldn’t consider Zurich one of the liveliest cities in the world, but I can definitely say that it is one of my favorites in Europe. I was amazed at how clean and manicured everything was! The old, ornate buildings were stacked neatly together in an almost random order, but it gave a kind of charm to the whole experience. Also, the small burst of colors on window shutters or small details on buildings caught my eye. You REALLY get a feel for how much money there is in that city. Afterall, it’s a city of bankers…

Valentino Flowers

I’m currently obsessed with this Valentino swarovski-studded floral necklace. You know me… I love a good bling from time to time. Gorgeous! Would look so good with a striped tee or something with a round neck…

Spring 2013 Valentino Bags

10/10/2012, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Spring Summer 2013, Valentino

While my super gorgeous seatmate Jessica Stam was busy fanning herself (I don’t blame her — it was soo hot at the Tuileries) while watching the spring/summer 2013 fashion show, I couldn’t stop ooh-ing and ahh-ing at these MAJOR Valentino bags.

Oh and this amazing pyramid-studded, clear trench coat showed up. I DIED!

The timing could not be anymore perfect because I wore a transparent Sonia Rykiel coat at Chanel earlier that morning.

It Feels Like I’m Back In Las Vegas, But I’m Not

21/04/2012, Comme Des Garcons, Current Affairs, Michael Kors, Prada, Valentino, Venice

Greetings from Venezia! I’m back in Italy (and mind you, back into my daily work grind) after a quick vacation back home in the Manila. The BF and I thought it would be a great idea to take visit Venice (the real one, not the Las Vegas version) now instead of going here during summer. The two-and-a-half hour train from Milan (which felt as if it was the longest train ride of my life) was worth it. Venice is soo beautiful! It’s probably my favourite Italian city so far.

A Little Valentino…

11/03/2012, Accessories, Valentino

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli of Valentino sent me a super chic, studded, white (perfect for summer!) iPad case with my initials in gold. Quite a luxurious touch if you ask me. I love my new iPad case. I guess it’s time for me to get a new iPad then…

Thank you so much for the lovely gesture!
