Lily Allen for Coco Cocoon
Lily Allen for Coco Cocoon
Oh boy. The ads for Chanel's new Coco Coccon line featuring Lily Allen were recently released and I'm totally fascinated by it. Really, the concept of the Coco Cocoon collection just does not appeal to me. Black, puffy, reversable designer handbags? I just can't picture myself ever wearing these big black puffy things. Maybe that's just me though, because in these ads, Lily Allen is totally rockin' these handbags! She looks sexy and elegant and super hot. I love the big hair, the big tiara, the big sunglasses, and the sleek black and white outfits. It's definitely very Aubrey Hepburn meets rock 'n roll princess. These...

Chanel's Going for the Tweed Look
Chanel's Going for the Tweed Look
Chanel has always been famous and well-known for their quilted-looking leather body and interlaced leather chain handle handbags. Boy, was that a mouthful! Chanel handbags are recognized by many as elegant high-end fashion evening bags--great to take to a classy restaurant and go dancing afterwards. Well, is Chanel dipping their toes into new waters? It seems like the answer to that question is “yes”! Chanel launched a new look for this year. The new handbag look is composed of fabric tweed matched with Chanel’s signature interlaced leather chain. The interlaced leather chain is an iconic symbol of Chanel. They’ve also managed to use patent calfskin leather for both the...

My First Miu Miu Love
My First Miu Miu Love
I was always been curious about Miu Miu and searching for one of their bags. I think I have found my first Miu Miu Love. This bag caught me by surprise. The color is not usually my style, but it’s definitely bold and doable. I especially loved the texture of the bag. It’s a gathered all nappa leather with braided top handles. It’s trimmed in silver hardware with a logo key. It also has a cross body strap which seems to be the trends these days. The top is a lock closure. I simply think it’s a great size, unique, and trendy. Now the question is….where to get...

Marion Cotillard for Lady Dior (Again)
Marion Cotillard for Lady Dior (Again)
I thought that this pairing was great for Lady Dior's Spring 09 ad; Marion was beautiful and the angles on that ad were fantastic. To see that they've paired up again for Lady Dior's Fall 09 ad as well made me a very happy camper. And I think this ad, shot by Annie Leibovitz, is even more stunning. Marion Cotillard looks fantastic as always (I'm a fan of this stunning French actress, though I have yet to see her in Public Enemies.) I love how vivid the red is. I only have two problems with this ad. First, there's that weird glow around Marion's reflection that I think...

Snakeskin Handbags are IN!!!
Snakeskin Handbags are IN!!!
The picture above shows a model wearing a Celine Snakeskin handbag at one of Celine’s store location. Do you gals fear snakes? Well, anything related to snakes just creep me out! I guess it is unfortunate for me because it seems that the new and popular trend today is snakeskin handbags. Boy, do I hate this fashion statement! Not only do I feel that these bags are hideous, they also gross me out! I think I should form a protest group and invite a bunch of animal activists to protest this repulsive fashion statement. This protest will be partly for my selfish reasons and partly for saving the...

Father’s Day Gift — Louis Vuitton Golf Bag
Father’s Day Gift — Louis Vuitton Golf Bag
Today is Father’s Day! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! Anyhow, I was looking for gift ideas to get for my dad and somehow I managed to stumble upon golf bags. What a great idea I thought to myself! I then remembered that Louis Vuitton also made a golf bag, so I looked further into that genre. When I saw the price tag, I quickly closed my internet browser. The darn thing costs over $8000. I love my dad, but that is too much for my blood!

Looking forward to Chanel
Looking forward to Chanel
There was a sneak peek of Chanel's Fall '09 Accessories collection on Fabsugar, so of course, I had to check it out. Now, I'm not quite sure if I'm happy that I did or not, because there are way too many accessories that I fell in love with: the gloves, the shoes, the jewelry, the handbags! Summer is barely here and already, I'm drooling over fall accessories. Craziness! But I must say, my favorite item so far is this adorable dark silver clutch, studded with stones at the top. It's gorgeous and sexy and chic... I want it! Good job, Chanel. I applaud you, again. I just wish I...

Burberry’s New Summer-Autumn 2009 Bag
Burberry’s New Summer-Autumn 2009 Bag
This bag is pretty awesome I must admit. This bag is from Burberry’s new sprayed check line. I like how Burberry was still able to incorporate its signature plaid design and add a modern twist to the finish. This new look from Burberry, shouts: “hip” while simultaneously whispers: “heritage”. Enough talking about the new look, let’s focus now on the actual bag itself. The bag still consists of Burberry’s patented cotton canvas Lowry printed with a sprayed exaggerated plaid look. This bag has normal flat straps and an additional adjustable/detachable shoulder strap used for wearing across the body. This is always a great addition to any bag. Sometimes women...

Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami Update!
Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami Update!
Louis Vuitton and Takashi Murakami have joined forces once again! It seemed so recently when they first collaborated, but can you believe that was actually 6 years ago in 2003? I remember I went to a Murakami exhibit like a year or two ago at the Los Angeles MOCA, where they included his various artworks, from his various paintings to ginormous figures to the most creative videos I’ve ever seen, and at one corner of the exhibit on the 2nd floor, there was even a Louis Vuitton section where you could buy Murakami designed LV bags! Now, they have teamed up again for the new Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami...
