Longchamp bags have long been underrated before the Filipino fashion scene learned to appreciate this functional beauty. I keep on seeing this brand in Rustan's since time immemorial, and have actually thought that paying more than a thousand bucks for a not-so-stylish tote is downright crazy. But who would've thought that I would fall in love with this brand?

Longchamp's most popular bag, Le Pliage, is simple, functional, and practical. I've finally learned to appreciate the beauty of these plain totes. Le Pliage comes in classic colors and style, which makes it timeless.

For someone like me who likes bringing her whole room to wherever she goes, this bag proved to be the perfect partner. Whatever I put in it, I can't seem to fill it to the brim! And when the Neverfulls of LV started making waves in the Philippine bag scene, Longchamp still stayed strong and unmoved. It's the cheaper version of Neverfull! With the amount you'll pay for a Neverfull, you can get yourself three, four, or even five Le Pliages!

The material of the tote is waterproof and weatherproof. And it's also clean-able! The handles are made of authentic leather (which is what you actually pay for).

You gotta love the excellent and superb quality of Le Pliages. Originally, it's only a tote meant for shopping. And this is the reason why these totes are extra strong! My Large long handle in Navy is still in great condition, considering that there were times where the bag seemed as if it was going to break because I put so much stuff in it.

Quality doesn't have to come at a hefty premium. And Longchamp is the proof. Hurrah for Longchamp!

Here's my newest baby:

And finally, I have a new Longchamp bag! I've been lemming for a new Le Pliage for quite some time now. I got myself a small LH Le Pliage tote in gray. But don't be fooled with the word "Small" because this baby is super spacious despite its size!

Japan's eco- friendly, travel- friendly, space- saving concept store now opens a flagship store in the Philippines!

Muji believes that excellence should not always come at a hefty price tag, and products need not to look glamorous, lavish, and embellished. This principle has made Muji famous not only in Japan, but in different countries as well.

Muji, a world- class Japanese brand, takes pride in its simple things that are essential in everyday life. From clothes to furniture, Muji offers its customer an array of sound, practical, and functional things for home, travel, and personal use.

Muji opens on October 16, 2010 at Bonifacio High Street, The Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. The store is located at the second floor of the building where Gap is (facing Fully Booked).

Haul time. :)

Just a haul from F21 while I was killing time in Megamall before I went to a Pre- production meeting for my thesis.

Amidst the sea of clothes, this is the only thing that caught my eye. I love the simplicity and sophisticated design of this spaghetti strap empire top.

Personal Note: F21 is indeed a haven for clothes lovers, including me. But for some weird reason, I can't seem to find myself hauling so much from F21 whenever I go there. Maybe because 1.) I find some of the clothes a tad OTT 2.) Some clothes might just look good on the mannequins, but not on me. 3.) I still have to learn embracing another style of clothing

I've recently found out that Wade is an international brand. The brand originated in Singapore. All this time, I thought that Wade is a local brand!

That's also a piece of information for you. :))) Anyway,

For Metrosexuals and classy girls out there, or if you're simply looking for classy shoes with a touch of modern style, you might want to check out Wade for these fabulous shoe finds. The men's shoe line is funky and stylish, while the women's shoe line boasts of clean yet edgy styles. Price ranges from 600- 1400php for women's shoes, and 1200- 1900php for men's shoes.

They also have bags and accessories for sale.

Here are my Wade hauls.
A funky pair of tarnished silver earrings.

A nice white belt. :)

My fave Wade haul: Ze killer shoes :)

These black shoes didn't appeal to me on the shelf. But when I tried them on, it really made my feet look red- carpet worthy.

I love the style!

The unconventional cut in front of the shoes made this a winner. It makes my feet look slim and narrow.

This pair costs P1099.00 only. Ain't it sweet? Ala- Steve Madden shoes at half the cost. :)

DISCLAIMER: Shoes are made of faux snake leather. If these were real, I wouldn't buy 'em, and they wouldn't only cost a thousand bucks.


Haul time! I promise to be back with more fashion- related posts. Please watch out for my Wacoal Sorciage review. :)

My hauls for the week. Check out my The Face Shop Haul in my BEAUTY BLOG.

This chain bag is the cutest! Got it from Chaps, The Fort Serendra. The SA told me that they only have two stocks of this. The other one was bought by Kristine Hermosa. I wouldn't dismiss the fact that it was just sales talk. But if it were true, then at least there are only the two of us who have this bag. :p

It looks blue here, but this Nike dri- fit racerback sando is purple in actual. I've used this today during jogging and I love how it keeps sweat away from my body. I'm looking forward to buying two more dri- fit tops! I can't get enough of sportswear hauling! Sportswear is quite expensive, but it keeps me motivated to exercise. But as the saying goes: If something works for you, then you should do it. :)

Here’s my outfit for my Wacoal Sorciage meeting in Makati. Hubby took this shot in the parking lot before we went to grab some dinner.

TOP: Loe and co.

SKIRT: The closet queen (multiply)




*Many thanks to the Nuffnang team for choosing me and Wacoal Philippines for the wonderful Sorciage stuff! Please watch out for my entry on Wacoal’s Sorciage line.


A pair of jeans is a must- have in any closet. This staple closet piece can go from casual to formal, depending on what shoes and top you pair it up with, therefore making it a classic.

A lot of people would really spend on luxurious pairs because of the quality, texture, look, and most especially, the fit.

Sometimes, it’s just so hard to find a pair that really fits in local brands. Jeans sizing can be a bit tricky. As much as I want to shop from local brands, I can’t because I end up getting a size that doesn’t fit, or doesn’t flatter me at all.

This Adriano Goldschmied pair is one of my splurges for this season. This fashion blogging might’ve taken its toll on me. That’s why I’ve been hauling like crazy for clothes for the past two weeks.

Anyway, Adriano Goldschmied is a favourite of many Hollywood stars including Scarlett Johansson, Paula Abdul, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Mischa Barton, Mary Kate Olsen, and Katie Holmes to name a few. They love AG for its fabulous fit and the undeniable good quality of the jeans, according to sources.

AG jeans are all about comfort and style that’s why Hollywood stars love it. Although price can be a bit steep because a pair of AG jeans ranges from $175- $290. It’s a tad cheaper than 7 jeans for all mankind and Rock and Republic, but still, it’s not affordable.

Anyway, here are pictures of my beloved jeans. The style I bought is called THE ANGEL. Style is bootcut, and the wash is light vintage blue. I love how it fits! It hugs my legs and butt perfectly! It flatters all my curves, and I love that it doesn’t give me a muffin top when I sit down. It even has an allowance on the waist because the jeans’ waist band is semi- stretch, which helps prevent muffin tops. It feels light, doesn’t feel too tight, and the vintage look made me love this jeans so much. Definitely worth the purchase!


It even comes with a metal charm that you can hang on your bags!

The tag inside

I love that tattered logo over there. :)

Like other imported jeans, these jeans are kinda' long considering that I stand at 5'5. I'd have this baby altered. I'm so excited to use it!
