Alexander McQueen 'Demanta' fabric clutch

Alexander McQueen 'Demanta' fabric clutch, $475 at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Another oddly (but fab) shaped clutch by Alexander McQueen. It is made of printed fabric, has one inside zip pocket and has top zip closure. 

This is how you use it as an accessory:

Fendi 'Borsa' color block tote

Fendi 'Borsa' color block tote, $2,130 at Saks Fifth Avenue.
This color block bag from Fendi from their S/S 2011 collection reminds me of a traditional hat in Korea. This bag has zip top, adjustable straps, and two inside pockets.

Salvatore Ferragamo 'Maia' raffia tote

Salvatore Ferragamo 'Maia' raffia tote, $990 at Neiman Marcus.

Weather is kinda crazy here. The other day it was scorching hot, yesterday it rained, today it is windy... it is hard to predict the weather nowadays. The weather bureau said that there will be longer rainy season and shorter summer season in the Philippines. So, I guess this Salvatore Ferragamo raffia tote will have to wait until April just in time for summer because raffia and rain aren't the best of friends.

Marc Jacobs 'Julie' large shoulder bag

Marc Jacobs 'Julie' large shoulder bag, $1,250 at Net-A-Porter.

Simple. Elegant. Just the right size to keep my every day bag essentials. I love the tassel charm. You can actually match this with almost anything in your closet. Bring it in the office, the mall, the movies, a date, the library, museum... wherever. Don't you just love the versatility of Marc Jacobs's bags?

Upwardly mobile satchel in Oxford University from Mod Cloth

Upwardly mobile satchel in Oxford University, $134.99 at Mod Cloth.
I fell in love with this bright yellow satchel with a really long name from Mod Cloth just by seeing its thumbnail image. This bag is designed by The Cambridge Satchel Company in UK (ha!).What is not to love about it? Tell me. And even though I am no longer a student, my laptop and some office papers perfectly fit inside. It is a great way to vamp up a little bit the boring office uniform.

A 'Manila' bag from Italy


Kung Hei Fat Choi!

This day officially starts the new year of our Chinese brothers and sisters. I just find it weird that they celebrate the Spring Festival during Winter. And while billions of Chinese from all over the world (you too perhaps) are celebrating, pause for a while and take a look at this 'Manila' sparkling clutch from VBH. 

It is made of silver sparkle fabric with an envelope design, contrast stitching and with three small silver studs in front. It is handmade in Italy--which justifies its price of $1,100 at Neiman Marcus. This is a pre-order item and shipping will start on March 11.

I am featuring this clutch because Manila is close to my heart and Italy is the place I wanted to visit someday.
