#TGIFRIDAYSTONY: A TASTE OF NEW YORK

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

What comes to mind when you hear the words "New York"?

Skyscrapers? Busy streets? Subway systems? People constantly on the go....

Holding delicious hotdogs while they cross busy intersections.

Wait, what???

More than Wall Street, Sex and the City and high fashion, it's the food that draws me towards the Big Apple.

#nevertooold: the button up mini

Friday, September 18, 2015

Since when did turtlenecks and mini skirts become something solely meant for the teenage set??? Because that's exactly what my 9 year old daughter told me when she accompanied me to the dressing room to try on a few things.

Kaloka. Haha

That just made me want to buy it more. :P

And so I did, in 3 colors.

#My1stCHANEL and why

Friday, September 11, 2015

Why do we spend ubiquitous amounts on luxury goods?

No matter how hard I try, I really can't justify it. 

When it comes to bags, I realized that no, they aren't heirloom material unless you store them under pristine conditions. Any old leather bag that costs 90% less will probably last the exact same amount of time.

So why?

I guess it all boils down to how it feels in our hands and how seeing it makes our hearts beat a little faster...

When we buy it ourselves, it's a pat on the back, a reminder and reward for all our hard work.

The proud logos and fine craftsmanship...the keen attention to detail put into these things are what constantly draws me to them and at the top of my list will always be Chanel.

No other brand is more timeless (and expensive haha) in my opinion.

But my golly, the Le Boy is like a year's tuition fee for my daughter and at this point in time, I'm not ready to spend that much yet (but soon, god-willing... :)!

So...I've switched my attention towards cosmetics instead...
