Satchel was my kind of thing like 20 years ago? Ha. But somehow, the appeal lessened down the years and it took me a lot longer to want to get hold of the classic Cambridge Satchel, often described as “The Brit It Bag”. But I jumped at the chance when I saw this pink shimmering bag in metallic leather at Shopbop and decided to get it with the gift certificates I received as part of my monthly fashion collaboration with the online store.
We don’t get spring here. No birds and blooms. Nah. But that doesn’t mean you can’t breathe some spring into your wardrobe. This season is all about fresh hues and bright colors! And even if you’re not fans of spring colors, you can add a bright spot to your ensemble with an accessory of citrus, yellow, teal, green or any cool sorbet shade. Or dump your dark nail polishes for some candy colors!
Are you a shoeaholic? You are? Well, I admire you. Because I find it difficult to buy shoes. Nah, I am no Miss Big Foot. Neither am I Miss Tiny Dainty Feet. But I just have very specific (read: boring) ideas about them. One, they must show my toes. Two, they must be comfortable to walk in. Three, they must look good on my feet. Four, they should make me look taller. Five, they must not cost too much. With these sort of criteria, I somehow end up buying similar looking shoes after awhile.
Peeps, it’s still Chinese New Year where I’m based and as I’m typing, I can hear some “lions” dancing in the distance. It’s good thing CNY happens once a year but a stretch of 15 days is really too much especially because it gives many of us a valid excuse to indulge our tummies. But too much of a good thing in the tummy isn’t always fine for the waistline or the hips. I realized my tummy is no longer flat! And so to conceal the bulge, I’m resorting to loose outfits!
