Fauxionable Outfit – Peter Pilotto for Target

I finally received my Peter Pilotto for Target wrap skirt when G picked it up from his cousin on his recent business trip to the US. I couldn’t wait to wear it and paired it with tights this past weekend. As I couldn’t try the item since it was sold out on Net-a-Porter, I was worried about poor quality and fit. (Read my review here.) Neither were of concern once I held the item in my hand, as the skirt is fairly well-made and lined. It also fit me well and the length was just nice. (Length is one of my main concern aside from quality!) I look forward to wearing it with many more outfits to come! 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – Statement Blazer

Ever since I saw Ivelina of FriChic rocking an orange statement blazer here, I’d been looking to get something similar for myself. A statement blazer in a bright color makes a neutral outfit stand out not to mention it’s a great way to cheer up oneself amidst the gray and gloomy weather. Luckily for me, ZARA releases a version of its jersey blazer in basic neutral colors year round and in different fun colors seasonally. I nabbed my ZARA orange blazer during one of the semi-annual sale last year.

The weather in London has been warming up a tad, and I kept warm with the cashmere sweater underneath the blazer. I’m glad I paired it the my cashmere sweater for I would otherwise be feeling chilly with the strong winds! Now if you’ll excuse the messy hair…

Wishing Wednesday… Celine Python Blade in Black


Celine Python Blade in BlackCeline Python Blade in Black

I included this Celine python Blade in my birthday wishlist here a few weeks ago, and while I was in London, I was able to check out the version in regular leather in Selfridges. I definitely love the versatility of it, as the strap can be easily converted to carry the bag cross-body (although the strap isn’t shown in the pic above) and the size would allow me to tote around both my tablet and my camera with a little bit of room to spare. I think it’s a good mid-size bag – larger than my Chanel reissue flap and a little more compact than my Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola PM – and fills my void of needing a black bag. I’ll say that I may or may not have one on its way to me as I was able to find it for a little less than the retail price of $4900 here in the US!

Happy Hump Day! 😉

Wishing Wednesday… Birthday Wishlist

Valentino Punkouture Studded Patent Pump, Vintage Chanel Brooch in Gold, 3.1 Phillip LIm 31 Minute Cosmetic Bag, Celine Blade in Python, Macarons

Another birthday, another year older. While my birthday wishlist is purely fantasy with perhaps the exception of some yummy macarons, a girl can dream, right? 😉 I’ve bought myself a camera for this year’s birthday so there wouldn’t be any fashion splurge although it sure is mighty tempting!

I love my Valentino Noir Rockstud flats although I don’t wear it as often as I’d like to for fear of scuffing it too much, yet I still pine for a pair of Rockstud in kitten heels. The limited edition red on red from last Fall got my heart skipping a beat, but these new Punkouture ones are a close substitute. The price tag however, makes it unobtainable (I’m a bag girl, not a shoe girl!). Perhaps a pair in nude/beige?

I adore my Chanel faux pearl brooch and have received many compliments on it that I’d like to obtain another, a vintage gold version to match my gold accessories. The one above is perfect since it’s less conspicuous in comparison to the usual blatant interlocking CC logo.

I’ve written about the 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute cosmetic bag here, so I shall not repeat myself. As for the macarons, need I say more? They’re great treats, much like dark chocolate except a little less accessible in DC (there’s not to say that there aren’t any, just not as easily accessible).

Last but not least, be still my beating heart. That Celine Blade in Python for Fall/Winter 2013 has got me weak in my knees. It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for exotics and my capsule collection of bags is still missing the perfect black bag. I recently sold my Mulberry Alexa as I wasn’t too happy with the quality of the embossed snakeskin and there’s a gaping hole to be filled. The Celine Blade in Python would be perfect for many reasons – it’s black, it’s exotic leather, and the adjustable strap to accomodate cross-body is perfection! Ah, if only I can find one for the price I’d be willing to pay…

In any case, I’m fortunate to be able to ring in my birthday on vacation and better yet be able to spend it with G! 🙂 Happy Hump Day!

Wishing Wednesday… Reed Krakoff Mini Atlantique

Reed Krakoff Black Mini Atlantique satchel

 Reed Krakoff Mini Atlantique in Black $1190

 I have recently been obsessing over Reed Krakoff’s Mini Atlantique satchel for its clean, minimalistic yet functional design. While the protruding flaps on the side may resemble Celine’s Luggage Tote or Phillip Lim 3.1’s Pashli, I think the Atlantique’s design is functional for it contains pockets instead of merely an aesthetic design. The Mini Atlantique is comparable in terms of size to Celine’s Micro Luggage and slightly bigger than the Phillip Lim 3.1 Mini Pashli (just by a teensy bit!). Perhaps my adoration also stems from the Mini Atlantique being less well-known, something which this article addresses. (I tend to prefer understated items where only like-minded individuals would recognize the item.)

It seems that I have recently been hankering for a black bag, a void in my capsule collection of bags. Sure, I have the Marc Jacobs Palais Royal Flat Case which I use regularly as a clutch and also the Chanel Reissue Wallet on Chain for my essentials but nothing that is medium sized to fit my essentials and my camera that has a messenger strap! The Soft Flap bag from Sophie Hulme sits on my wishlist but it’s now being contended by this number from Reed Krakoff!

Which would you pick – Soft Flap Bag or Mini Atlantique?
